Every semester I guest lecture to Media Arts students at one of my alma maters, BCIT. They’re closing in on graduation and getting ready to start their careers and I come in and tell them all about what it’s like to be a freelancer in the real world – not the one they learn about in their small business class.

The Castello Alps Collection of cheeses consists of a Chiantino™ Cheese, a Weissbeir Cheese, a Classic Cheese and a Hirten Cheese – all of which were totally new to me but well worth sampling.
I spent a really fun day at Granville Island Market with my “food hubby” Sean last week. There’s more coming on that in a later post but, while I was there I bought a bag of beautiful heirloom tomatoes that cost me a fortune but I just couldn’t resist. You see, one of the sad [...]
Do you remember the show Friends? And Joey and his obsession with sandwiches? Ok, well I totally get where Joey was coming from. Sandwiches, or sammiches as I refer to them, are the best. thing. ever. Even better than cookies. I know! Better than cookies! Now if that’s not a statement, I don’t know what [...]
If you follow this blog with any kind of regularity, then you know that I have a love/hate relationship with pastry. Love eating it. Hate making it. I’m a decent baker but pie crust eludes me completely. So, I buy it. The two shell yellow box from Tenderflake. It’s fast, easy and has never failed [...]

But in all honesty, it’s sooo muucch worrrrrk (read that like a mopey 15 year old groaning about having to do their own laundry). I know my mom reads this pretty regularly [...]
I have a confession to make: most of the time I’m a make ahead blogger. What I mean by that is, because the focus of my blog is food photography and light is scarce in winter, I often do most of my cooking, shooting and writing on the weekends. (oh… I cannot wait for summer [...]
I loves me a good Mac n Cheese dish. It may be my all-time favourite comfort food and while I’ve made a few good ones in my life, this is hands down the best ever. It’s not fancy or difficult. Every ingredient will probably be in your pantry. No fancy cheeses, nothing out of the [...]
I’m tired of sweets and cookies. Unfortunately, they seem to be one of the few things that lend themselves to shooting in the few decent hours of daylight that I get this time of year. So, I threw caution to the wind and photographed my dinner concoction the other night under the kitchen table light [...]
