Restaurant Bon Apétite Des Antilles – Pretty Tasty

About two months ago I came across a restaurant in my new neighbourhood called Restaurant Bon Apétite Des Antilles. It hadn’t been there earlier on in the year so I decided to take a step in and to have a sampling of their food. Their address is 2525 Provost which is in the Burough of Lachine…

Ban Hate Monger Valentina Lisitsia

Ukraine hate monger Valentina Lisitsia should be banned from entering Canada and performing anywhere in this country. This should be the stand of anyone who holds normal social values and abhors hate speech of any kind, period. I could not agree more with the president of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress president Paul Grod who concluded…

Do you have a social media reach of over 100K? If so you may consider lending your reach to an initiative by two Canadians. I was an expat in Ukraine for nearly ten years, my friend is still there. On June 18, 2014 Nadiya Savchenko was abducted by Russian backed terrorists and against the rules…

Figgy Oatmeal Cookies

The Goodness of a Killer Tuna Sandwich

Change is a good thing and now is the best time for change in order that I refocus, and in doing so I want to share my recipe for a Killer Tuna Sandwich. Last weekend after the first long walk of 7.25 km that I’ve taken in over a year, I took a look around…

Майте совість – думаєте про батьків – та дітей

Скажіть мені менти – хто у Вас немає МАТІР яка за тобою переживає? Хто із вас – Правоохоронців пам’ятаєте яку присягу ВИ брали? Скажіть – чи Ви Правоохоронці вірите у Бога? Як так! Чому Ви служите кримінальні банді Януковича? Чи не пора розуміти хто праві? Як ваші батьки виховали? Та як хочете що ваші діти…

Cinnamon squash and tomatoes for pasta

Nearly a year ago I had a hankering for something different, some type of comfort food. I wasn’t sure what I wanted. I looked around the kitchen and I could see some tomatoes left from the garden, I figured I would cook up something different with them, but I wasn’t certain what. Then I recalled…

Not your standard breakfast: Lentils, roasted garlic and broiled avocado

I was up before the sun this morning and I had a hankering to do something different in the kitchen. I could hear the rain beating against the window pane and I knew that I had no desire to head outside until it got a little lighter, but would have to get out and get…

Apple, Potato and Egg Bake

Last night as I was getting ready for bed I realized I wanted to try a different mix of flavours. While I know russet patatoes are better for baking than white patatoes, it was the latter  which I had on hand. I had just seen a recipe for carmalized apples as a filling for crepes…
