Beware: Three Cheese...

If you are eating low carb or low, do NOT read on. You WILL fall off the wagon. After many years of thinking I didn’t like the menu at Pickle Barrel, I decided to retry it. And boy, had I been wrong. Not only was the menu ENDLESS, but an different items caught my eye on almost every...

Dreamy Breakfast

I have a bad habit of ordering the same thing at every restaurant. For the most part, I’m working on it. However in the case of ‘Eggs and Benedictine’ at Cora’s, it won’t happen. This breakfast is to die for. A true vegetarian dream. It features poached eggs over...

This weekend I went the Greek Garden Café in Guelph. This is my third time visiting this fabulous restaurant and it definitely will not be my last. I keep feeling so compelled to come back because of all the vegetarian options this menu has to offer. For appetizers they have various dips such...

Roasted Love

I say this a lot, but this is pretty much my favorite dish.     Take a bulb of garlic and peel off the top layer of papery skin. Then take a knife and cut off the very tips of the cloves on one side of the bulb. Wrap the entire bulb, placing it back together as best you can, in tin...
