For those of you who drop by DDD regularly, you may have noticed that the frequency of my posts has slowed down considerably of late. Well, once again, it’s that time of the semester when I’m deep into a marking blitz and consequently feel as if I’m neglecting this blog. That, paired with an impromptu […]
[I’ve decided to offer a mini-post every once in a while, for a dish that comes together incredibly quickly, or else is so easy to make that no recipe is required. Here’s today’s “Flash in the Pan.”]
Oooh. . . I’m feeling the crunch. I wish I could say […]
Recently, the HH and I spent a couple of evenings with my old friend Phil, first in Montreal and then again here in Toronto. It was wonderful to see an old friend with whom I share so much history (we’ve known each other since we were both 15). She’s supported me through […]
There are certain food combinations that strike one as just so naturally compatible, you couldn’t imagine them any other way. Consider the seminal chocolate and peanut butter, for instance: could there be a happier marriage of sweet, salty, creamy, smooth, and enticing?

You know, there are days when I just marvel at how much my life has been enriched by joining the world of blogging. I’m amazed at how many positive experiences this little outlet for self-expression, culinary creativity and the occasional star-struck reference to my favorite soap opera has brought my way.

The Girls love the glorious sunshine and heat, but spending too much time frolicking outside can take its toll. . . .
[“Oh, Mum, I just adore summer–especially getting sprayed by the garden hose!”]
[“Really, Chaser, how puerile. Personally, I prefer to keep my distance from the […]
* [or Concasse, if you prefer the more conventional term. . . but I just loved the word “tracklement” ever since I read it on Lucy’s blog, and besides, “Tomato Tracklement” is just so much more alliterative.]
Last weekend was our Canada Day holiday, and this year I learned an important […]
