Ahhhh…the Christmas Holidays! My favourite time of year. The holidays bring me so much joy with days filled with warmth and cheer, bringing my family together to do what we do best – drink. Among our many traditions is blasting Christmas carols while putting up our huge Christmas tree while sipping on a cup of warm, mulled wine.

Meet Alexandra Courts. Over a year ago or so, I stumbled upon her amazing Instagram account and started stalking her hard. I couldn’t get over her amazing cat photos (LOVE) and her on point food photography and recipes! I marvelled at all of the mouth-watering, beautiful pictures of such things as “protein nice cream sandwiches”, no-bake peanut buttercups and raw, salted chocolate caramel/coconut tarts.

Ottawa, the city I call home, has a reputation for being small, conservative and frankly – boring. If you give it a chance though, our unassuming little town will thrill you with its amazing restaurants.
I don’t think I’ve ever been to a city that is this small, but has so many great culinary offerings. From the charming Byward Market in the downtown core, to the faraway reaches of Manotick, there is a wealth of tasty delights at every turn.

Happy Monday, All!
I had an absolutely fantastic weekend! Our good friend Meredith was visiting from LA and we were fortunate enough to all get together on Friday night for dinner.
Being an LA native, Meredith has access to some of the best authentic Mexican food in her revered city. To make her feel at home, we wanted to take her to local favourite El Camino for tacos and margaritas (El Camino has perfected the margarita, in my opinion). Unfortunately, it true El Camino fashion, the wait for a table was over 90 minutes long, so we decided to head up the street to Town for dinner. Continue reading Mmmmm…Pure Gelato!
Well, it’s been a hectic week, but in a good way. Work is trucking along well, our landscaper has started in our backyard on my rockgarden (so thrilled!) and Ryan and I have booked our trip out west to visit his family. Life is good.
I hadn’t seen my two girlfriends for cocktails and dinner in a while, and Lucie thought it was about time to hit up a patio and enjoy a few laughs together. Continue reading Style Domination Restaurant Review: Metropolitain Brasserie Restaurant
