Fresh Spring Radish and Ricotta Crostini

Radish and Ricotta Crostini Appetizer Recipe - She Eats

If you tell me I have to stick to a routine, I'm likely to jam a fork in my eye and then swirl it around side to side until I'm left with a gloopy mess of guts and veins. ...How's THAT for an introduction to a food blog post? Seriously though. I am not a routine oriented person. I resist routine. Emphatically. And if you try to force me into a set of events dictated by a strict schedule of what to dos and when to dos, I'll take that fork and jam it in your eye. Okay, I probably won't do ...

The Organic Food Myth

The Organic Food Myth - Strawberries - She Eats

Instead of asking why organic food is so expensive, we should be asking why conventional food is so cheap. I call bullshit. Have you seen that meme circulating the social medias? I won't lie; I was one of the first to slap it on my Facebook page all "rah rah down with Monsanto!" and all that hippy-dippy, real food advocate, pro-kale baloney. Because that's just how I roll, yo. And while I totally agree with David Avoacdo Wolfe (how great is his name?!), he's missing one key ingredient in the ...

A Culinary Blog Tour


It's official! Today is the first day of Spring. You know what that means, don't you? It's going to be warm enough soon to run around without any pants on! Woot! Along with seeing the beginning of Spring as an opportunity to run around half naked, I also see it as a chance to introduce you to 3 of my favourite food blogs that I think you should salivate over. My top 3 food blogs to follow, as it were. You see, at the start of the month I was included by Amanda at Once Upon A Recipe on a ...

Fennel Infused Salty Dog: The Fenhound

Fennel Infused Vodka - Greyhound Salty Dog - She Eats

I realize your first thought about infusing fennel into a cocktail may be "ew". That's fair. I don't hold judgement. This is a safe space, my friend. Which is why I know you won't judge me either when I say this: Other things that have also been known to  inspire "ew" as a first impression but actually turn out to rock my boat include such phenomena as grilled cheese sammiches dunked in chocolate milk, eating pickles naked and the occasional Cadbury cream egg (don't tell ...

Currently: The February 2015 (I don’t care that there’s no recipe) Edition

Avocado Toast Breakfast -

Ah balls. I just did a whole new blog design (isn't it shiny?) and thus, I don't have a recipe to share with you this week. Instead of developing delicious, seasonal dishes I spent the last week organizing, updating and revamping the entire site (including a drop dead sexy new recipe index) and crying, stomping and throwing a veritable fit when the HTML wouldn't do as I said. My friends, the last week has been an interesting mix of blood, sweat and bourbon getting 'er up and running and so ...

Dirty Sexy Coffee Drinks: Shafts

Shafts Recipe - Coffee Drinks -

I have a special place in my heart - and mouth - for shafts. Ow ow! I do not however, have quite the same adoration for Valentine's Day. I know, I know. There's a lot of different reasons to not get all up in the biznass of Valentine's Day. Mandatory romance, over-priced prix fixe menus, the heterosexism of it all, long stemmed roses (blech) and all that awful red-pink-white colour combining. Some things were just not meant to be together. Like chocolate and peanut butter (don't judge). Or ...

Giveaway: 1 of 3 Microplane Kitchen Tools

Microplane Kitchen Tools Giveaway -

Have you ever grated your face? No? Me either. Ouch. But I have grated knuckles, finger tips and believe or not, a wrist once. In fact, I have one uncle who grated his entire thumb clean right off. And if you've ever grated anything, you can imagine how unclean that would actually be. Though I have to disclose it wasn't so long ago that I was a bit afeared for my face that one whole day I worked on a line in a real restaurant kitchen. Naive, optimistic and hungry for the chance to create my ...

Healthy Breakfast: The Avocado Toast Infatuation

Healthy Breakfast - Avocado Toast Recipe -

I have a secret that isn't so secret. I'm infatuated with avocado toast. Yeah, right. Right? Like everybody else on the planet right now, I'm obsessed. Oh wait - is that a bandwagon going by? All aboard! Choo choo! Or if not obsessed, I'm at least in love. Or if not in love, I'm at least in infatuation... That sentence doesn't sound right. Never matter - you get the point: I have an avocado toast infatuation. And you probably do too. I may not truly love it the same way I love my family, ...

Sweet Roasted Carrots with Kale Pesto & Spiced Greek Yogurt

Sweet Roasted Carrots with Kale Pesto & Spiced Greek Yogurt -

I'm all dried up. Or at least the community gardens are anyhow. I'm fine - well hydrated, appropriately lubricated (we're talking bourbon, right?) and not one day older than 34. Actually, I'm 107 days older than 34 but you know what I mean. I'm all good. Healthy. Happy. Young(ish). Satisfied. Outside though the ground is stiff (hehe, "stiff"), the trees are bare and it doesn't get light until I've already been up and hard at work for at least 2 hours. Err, did I say hard at work? I meant at ...

Grilled Salted Caramel Dark Chocolate Coffee Sandwiches

Sourdough Grilled Salted Caramel Dark Chocolate Coffee Sandwiches -

I like to think I'm kind of a bad ass. Hence the double nose piercings, ingredients sleeve on my left arm, chest tattoo front and center, and don't ef with me front-laced ass kickin' boots. I listen to bad ass bands like Anti-Flag and No Means No and New Kids on the Block. Oh yeah, and no big deal, but I totally have a Judas Priest t-shirt that's been shredded to tatters. I am hard core. Don't cross me man. I will mess. you. up. Uhhhh... Right. Truth be told: Yes, I do have tattoos and ...
