Over the Rainbow to Kansas City

Over the Rainbow to Kansas City

As a little born and bred Canadian girl, I never thought I’d say this: but man do I love Kansas City, Missouri. I have a weird life. I got lucky enough to audition for a show ten years ago (Firefly) that turned into a little cult hit with the most dedicated orange hat-wearing, Hero Of(…)

Steelhead with Roasted Beets

Steelhead with Roasted Beets

I’m feeling guilty again. It might be the fact that a Big Mac fell in my mouth around 2am last night. Or that I ate the french onion dip I was supposed to be saving for that party I’m throwing, in my car on my way home from the store. Or that I went to(…)

Cut to……

Cut to……

Holy moly, Vancouver, have I found a goodie for you. But first, let me say that finding decent Spanish food in this city has been tough times. Aside from the old institution that shall remain nameless because they’re so sweet there but I got food poisoning from some shitty rotten scallops and on a date(…)

First of all, HAPPY 2014, you little minxes! So sorry to be AWOL lately. The holidays were, you know, the holidays (booked my Christmas Boycott to Maui trip already for this coming year, so bye-bye, family/suckers!). Then I did a ridiculous cleanse which included no alcohol and a lot of crying. And now I’m smack-dab(…)
