Local Leaside

Patios have been even more popular this year due to covid-19 and the limitations of eating inside. If you want a good one to go to in midtown Toronto, you should definitely try Local Leaside, near Leslie St. and Eglinton Ave E. Local Leaside is one 

Oven-Baked Salmon

Oven-Baked Salmon

I discovered that my oven-baked salmon is actually decent when I first brought it as my pot luck dish for my family’s Christmas dinner one year. My aunt said the salmon was really good and asked me if I had bought it from somewhere. 😂 I didn’t think 

Buster’s Sea Cove

Buster’s Sea Cove

I don’t know if I’m the only one, but I find it really difficult to find good lobster in the GTA. Most restaurants in the GTA that serve lobster only have lobster tails, except for Red lobster and Chinese restaurants, but Prince Edward Island is

Instant Pot Cream of Mushroom Soup Chicken

I’ve had an Instant Pot for a few years now, but we haven’t used the “Pressure Cook” option too often. My husband and I usually like to slow cook our meat, but sometimes we forget to prep or season and put the meat into the

Plank Restobar

Plank Restobar

For my birthday this year, my friends organized a dinner at the patio of Plank Restobar in Oakville. They wanted to do something special for me since it was a milestone birthday, even though we had to celebrate COVID-style. As I get older, milestone birthdays aren’t as 

Kostas Meat Market

Kostas Meat Market

Ok, I know I blog about Greek food a lot, but how can I resist when it’s so tasty? On Valentine’s day last year, I was craving Greek food as I often do so I decided to check out Kostas Meat Market at Warden Ave 

Pulled Pork Taco Pizza

Pulled Pork Taco Pizza

I don’t think I know anyone (personally) who hates cheese. What’s to hate? There are so many different kinds of cheese, it tastes good and it tastes even better when it’s melted so I use every opportunity I can to melt cheese on my food.
