Pakistan is Beautiful, I’ll Come Back Soon

Last month if you’d told me that Pakistan looked like Arizona, I’d tell you to go fly a kite, which in some parts of Pakistan is now illegal. Pakistan is a paradox, it is one of the most beautiful places you could ever visit, but you don’t hear about that on the news. It is […]

Weekend Getaway to Viamede Resort (Part 2)

Here it is! I have already talked about the amazing food options available at Viamede Resort, but didn’t go into detail about the actual place or how much I enjoyed my weekend getaway. As a full-time working professional in one of the busiest cities in the world, I sometimes forget to relax. It happens to the most of […]

Sweet Potato Pie Recipe for Thanksgiving

Everyone has a dinner tradition and for my family, it is sweet potato pie on Thanksgiving and Christmas. It’s one of the most easiest yet delightful things to make and eat, so I thought I’d share my recipe with you. If you’re looking to help out in the kitchen this weekend for Thanksgiving dinner, I highly suggest […]

Mini Getaway to Viamede Resort

I spent the weekend at Viamede Resort about two hours outside of Toronto; the food alone was worth the trip. If food doesn’t excite you, consider being able to take your dog for a walk while he chases frogs during sunrise, or knowing that your cottage has a wood stove (with limitless wood) and delicious food just […]

Personal Thoughts on Religion

This is one of the dinner party deadly three: War! Politics! Religion! All of these things we’re not supposed to discuss are more important today than they have ever been. Whether it be for spiritual guidance, the development of value systems or community building, religion serves a purpose in society. To bring this all to the forefront, equally, I […]

Recap of #TacoTweetup at La Mexicana

Last Friday evening a *small* group of Twitter friends got together for #TacoTweetup at La Mexicana. New friendships were made and some old ones reunited over delicious mojitos and Mexican food. It was the first time James and I co-hosted a “social” event and we couldn’t be more happy with the turnout. The capacity we initially […]

Taste of the Kingsway in Etobicoke

This past Sunday (Sept. 8, 2013) I took Frenzi for a walk up Bloor Street West, a few blocks with the cursory knowledge that an event called Taste of the Kingsway was happening, an annual gathering held by the Kingsway BIA. It was an enjoyable walk-through, I had no idea what to expect. Taste of the Kingsway was […]

Blended mushroom beef burrito

Food is always better when it is wrapped in other foods. Stuffing in turkeys, rice in vine leaves and beef in a tortilla. The first burrito I ever had was from a street-side food truck found in a border town of Arizona, USA and Mexico. I was 13 and hadn’t ever eaten a tortilla, let alone a burrito. […]
