Chris Jerk

Someone suggested Chris Jerk when my co-workers and I were trying to decide where to go to grab lunch one day at work (before covid-19 and working from home every day began). That was the first time I had heard of Chris Jerk so, naturally, 

Pan Fried Steak

Pan Fried Steak

Sometimes there’s nothing better than eating a good steak…yummy! I used to think that making steaks at home can’t compare to the steaks at steak restaurants like The Keg until I pan-fried some ribeye steak recently. I might have lucked out this time, but it 

Main’s Mansion

Main’s Mansion

I don’t typically like going out for breakfast because I feel like most of it is food I can make at home myself for less than half the cost, that is, until I had breakfast at Main’s Mansion. My husband found out about Main’s Mansion 

Francesca Bakery

Francesca Bakery

Since I’m not really big on sweets, I have probably passed by Francesca Bakery thousands of times (my grandma lives nearby) without a second thought. My husband loves sweets though so he kept mentioning that we should go there recently, but every time we wanted

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

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 

Port

Port

My husband and I have been trying to have a patio date night every Friday before summer ends and we have to hibernate (or self isolate) again. I wanted to try somewhere new and ended up finding Port on a list of best patios in Pickering.
