i figured i would do another one of these posts since i haven’t since the beginning of summer!

| what i’ve been up to |

still contributing weekly recipes to my friend Ange’s blog: Smoothie Sundays are still in full force and a ton of great, super healthy fall and winter recipes are coming up! keep an eye out and check out her blog here!

i also recently contributed some healthy recipes for Gorgo Magazine – a women’s health mag, and will be doing monthly healthy recipes going forward. to see the full recipe you’ll have to purchase the issue or a year subscription, but here’s a sneak peak of the 3 recipes i made for them:
cauliflower pizza two ways / eggplant lasagna rollups / black bean quinoa burgers
collage1oh! I’m also doing some promo photography for Lola’s Kitchen Toronto’s menu and social media. they are an adorable resto at Bloor and Church. check out their website and menu here!

i also just added another charge to my credit card, but this time it wasn’t shoes – it was books! among all of my other lists, i have a “to read” list that’s always growing on my phone. before i knew what social media was, all i would do anytime i had a free minute was read. i’ve read the harry potter series at least 8 times (yes, all 7 books – and yes, actually 8 times). i love that feeling of not being able to put a book down; sneaking a couple pages in at your desk at work, almost missing your subway stop because you were so into the characters, and knowing that you really should turn off your light and go to sleep since it’s 3am, but you just can’t stop turning pages. i hadn’t had that in ages, until I read Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain. that book got me excited about reading again – i should have know all i had to do was pick up a book about food! now, with the cold weather coming, i can wrap myself up in a blanket and read for hours and not have to venture out into the hell that is outside. i ordered these 5 from amazon today and cannot wait until they come in:

The Inquisitive Cook (Accidental Scientist) – Anne Gardiner

Blood, Bones & Butter: The Inadvertent Education of a Reluctant Chef – Gabrielle Hamilton

*also, i’m changing up the theme on the blog – so bear with me while i sort out the formatting and everything

xox!
