Best Apple Recipes and Other Musings

Best Apple Recipes and Other Musingsfeatured

Have I mentioned lately that I’m working during the day and going to school (3 courses, no less)? Cause it’s been driving me a little crazy. Time for much- needed weekend rest and fun. On Sunday,  I’ll be apple picking for the first time. There will be baskets! There will be….apples. And, I’ll wear something plaid!  And filter all my Read more

I live in a pretty busy part of town. Bloor runs down rush-hour-ery and vibrant and obnoxious with all kinds of city buzz. There is no stopping. Except when you come across an insistent patch of ice on the sidewalk. Even when the weather eases up for a few hours; everything melts but this particular Read more

Oh  your 20s. I hate the term 20-Somethings, because it’s like we’re all a big indiscernible lump of people so clueless that we need not discuss the nuances of cluelessness. But yes.

I see my father, drinking his disgestif, inquiring whether there’s something to “sweeten life.” A meal is incomplete without dessert, he says. I’ll tell you something. It’s tough not going home for Christmas. I haven’t been home in almost two years now, and of course I miss my family. But I also miss the Brazilian Read more

Muffin Malapropism

A fool and his muffin are easily parted. During the week, I assume most people try to pretend like they’re healthy. You gotta make a smoothie in the morning or buy a veggie cup for lunch. Throw some almonds in a Ziploc that’ll sink to the bottom of your bag. At least they’re there–untouched and Read more
