Earl Grey Tea Latte (London Fog)

November 13th, 2011 · No Comments · Drink, Easy

In an effort to sate my girlfriends serious addiction to Starbuck’s Earl Grey Tea Lattes I set out to see if I could easily (and cheaply) make them at home. Since I don’t own anything with a milk steamer I was unsure how this would work out, but I made do!

October 31st, 2011 · 4 Comments · cupcake, Just for Fun

A running/work friend recently asked me to make cupcakes for her little man’s 2nd birthday and these little bright babies were the result.

I tasted this salad the other night while out for dinner at McNally Robinson’s restaraunt “Prairie Ink” (a great local place with great ambiance and occasionally vibrant live music) and decided that I had to try making it at home.

Today I utilize another Christmas gift. But this time, I am using the gift I gave to my parents, a Cuisinart Food Slicer. Maybe I am a bad son, or maybe just a little selfish, but as I purchased this item I began dreaming up all the wonderful food I could slice up and put […]

Hot Chocolate on a Stick

Before I start this post I have to say that I recently discovered something that is more powerful than google: mothers. Yes, that’s right, mothers.

Two friends from the University of Alberta recently moved to Saskatoon to take their Masters of Professional Accounting program. As a welcoming gift, I decided to make them their first meal in Saskatoon. I wanted something that was easy to make (so they could remake it), but will also satisfy their manly hunger – well […]
