Cooking With Love

Since the beginning of our relationship, my boyfriend and I have always cooked together. On many Saturdays, we’ll head to Granville Island to buy fresh ingredients and spend the evening enjoying our culinary experiments. I would say that almost every dish we’ve tried has been successful. I think this says less about our skills in the kitchen and more about …

Read Me, Plant Me

What’s in Your Journal?

A couple months ago, my lucky husband had the chance to visit Tokyo for a week. Amidst the eating, train rides and getting lost, he did manage to find the MoMA and bring back goodies… As mentioned in an earlier post, I was so excited to see the Piperoids he brought back. But I blush, as to this date we …
