Butternut Squash Gnocchi.

November 11, 2016

  About a month ago, I attended Bella Cibo’s gnocchi-making class. The class was hosted by Marzia, the owner and creative mind behind Bella Cibo. She was born and raised in Italy and cooks the traditional Italian way. Handmade noodles in her lasagna? Ragu sauce from scratch? She has that covered. So when she announced that she was hosting a cooking class all about gnocchi, I knew I had to attend. I’d always been interested in making gnocchi, but found…

Spiced Apple Cake.

October 31, 2016

As I sit here eating this delicious spiced apple cake for breakfast and sipping my caffe latte, I figure what better time to tell you about this cake? There’s no better time to write about something than when you’re actually eating it right?  I found this recipe while looking at the Feedfeed’s Instagram story last weekend. One of their editors, Rebecca Firth from Displaced Housewife was making this cake. It looked so good in the Insta video, so I went over…

Hugo.

October 17, 2016

One night this past summer, my friends and I went out to Bella Gelateria in Yaletown. We got some drinks and all ordered the same one. It sounded good on the menu and we’d never tried it before. It was the Hugo. It was love at first sip. The combination of St. Germain, prosecco and soda was divine and we were all hooked. Since then, we make the drink when we get together and pretty much can’t get enough. I…

Brandy-Infused Pumpkin Pie

October 9, 2016

This Thanksgiving is one like no other (for all the non-Canadian readers, it’s Thanksgiving in Canada this weekend!). I have not one, but two turkey dinners to go to- one I attended last night on my side of the family, and one tonight on Ben’s side of the family. So even though I will be EXTREMELY full on turkey and stuffing, no Thanksgiving dinner would be complete without my mom’s pumpkin pie. She’s been making it for years, and the…
