About me

My name is Emily. I’m a communications professional and jazz enthusiast. This is a food blog, so I’m obviously a millennial. I live in downtown Toronto. I don’t have a lot of counter space. I’m trying to get better at cooking.

Apologies to my friend Hannah, I’ll promise we’ll eat out together again eventually.

Food blogs I love

Here are some food blogs I love. Hopefully this will expand as the project continues.

Cookie and Kate – Since January, my very dreamy live-in boyfriend has been a vegan who eats fish, or a pescetarian who doesn’t eat dairy or eggs. This blog is a life-saver.

Food52 – Browsing this site to plan expansive and detailed dinner parties I’ll never actually pull off is a favourite rainy day activity of mine.

Jaime Oliver – One time, on a weeknight, I decided to try Jamie’s 30-minute Rainbow trout with horseradish yoghurt and balsamic beets. It was delicious. We ate at 10:30 p.m.

Oh She Glows! – I mean, obviously.

Other blogs you might find of interest

Fruitless Apparatus – A wonderful complement to your Careless Cook reading, Fruitless Apparatus explores the writer’s backlog of cooking tools that have never left the box.
