After reading Francis’s article on mangoes, I’ll admit I didn’t really understand his stint as a fruit purist. I can understand and sympathize with making so much of something that you never want to see it again, but I don’t think I could ever g… Read full post »
The great thing about living in a place with four full seasons is that you get to experience the happy transition from winter to spring. When the snow melts and the weather warms, people are visibly happier. By the end of winter, everyone has had it with the cold, and t… Read full post »
Two weeks ago I went in search of Banksy. The famed British street artist had swept through Toronto, leaving seven of his stencils scattered across town (two more than what I had previously heard).
As news spread of Banksy’s visit I started receiving t… Read full post »
This week two of our best friends and their son came to visit from Vancouver. The best part of our visits, whether they’re here or we’re out west, is that their company always makes us feel like we’re on vacation. We could have work coming out the ying yang, but… Read full post »
Yesterday Banksy stumped me.
Today I found one of the five!
Over the weekend the British street artist Banksy left his mark on Toronto. Five graffiti stencils scatter the city. The Torontoist was the first to find and post all pictures.
Yesterday I went on a mission… Read full post »
On Sunday morning word started spreading that Banksy, the famed British street artist had passed through Toronto leaving some artistic gifts in his wake. The first person to hear of Banksy’s visit was Simon Cole, director of Toronto’s Show & Tell Gallery. News reached… Read full post »
I know there are those who think hiding vegetables in the food you serve your kids is absurd. That kids should be allowed to know what they are eating. To those people I say, come for dinner. My kids might make you change your mind.

On Friday my son came home from daycare with a gift: a construction paper flower with four petals. Printed on each petal is a reason why my three-year-old loves me.
Malcolm’s petals read:
1. I love my mom because she takes me to… Read full post »
To say “Babies”, the latest film by the esteemed documentarian Thomas Balmès, is unique is to understate the experience. “Babies”, which premiered last week at Toronto’s Hot Docs film festival, is mesmerizing and unforgettable.
Filmed without narration… Read full post »
When life started happening I didn’t worry or stew, I went right along and started happening too.
But then sometimes I didn’t, and got stuck by mistake in the tiresome waiting place which screwed up my pace.

A bunch of granola crunching, activist hippies is how a friend describes the people with whom we attended university. It is true that our degrees were some what shrouded in left-leaning politics with a large population of students involved in some kind of activism. There wer… Read full post »
Aprils Fools’ Day dishes – this week our regular household routine of sneaking in spinach, disguising broccoli, or just plain lying about what we’re having for dinner is a legitimate joke. I may in fact take this opportunity to co–opt April Fools’ Day for… Read full post »
Cinco de Mayo, but green all the same.
Last summer I volunteered on an organic farm. I was on maternity leave and decided to make the most of the time I had with our daughter and my summer out of the office. The year prior to my leave I developed… Read full post »
I am not that lucky. I have friends who are lucky. Friends that win contests, have bought their first home without a bidding war, have become landlords (decent ones) and have always had good tenants. They’re just lucky people.
That is not I. I never win contests – well,… Read full post »
Last fall my husband, son, and I were walking through one of our city’s Farmers Markets. I’ll put ‘Farmers Markets’ in quotations since not all vendors sell farmed goods. In fact there are a rising number of vendors who live nowh… Read full post »
I have a three year old. He doesn’t eat much, but he does eat black beans. He’ll pick them out of any fajita, stew, rice etc. The kid likes his beans.
