Ellena’s for Lunch!

Hey everyone, August is here!  Though, with the summer we're having, August is going to be gone before you know it. At this point, I'm counting down the weeks until I return back to Ottawa because it marks several things for me. I will be starting my fourth year of my undergrad (FINALLY), a long-distance … Continue reading Ellena’s for Lunch!


Cactus Club on Point

Hey guys, "Happy Monday," or so they say. The weather's dull, the temperature feels like October, and I feel like I'm being ripped away from the summer that was teasing me all year while at school. Grumpiness aside, there's still a good whole month left to wait around patiently for the constant humidity that everyone … Continue reading Cactus Club on Point

Food Frenzy

Can we all just take a minute to look back at when food trucks were considered kind of unpredictable, a little random, and not very popular? My, how times have changed. We're living in an age where food trucks and their 'meals on wheels' have hit the ground running with crazy concepts, extravagant trucks, and … Continue reading Food Frenzy

Corn Cakes with Chilli Aioli

Hey guys, I don't know about you, but the May 2-4 long weekend seems already too far back even though it was literally two days ago. I hope all of you managed to enjoy the weird, somewhat nice/somewhat gloomy weather. It was definitely the coldest May long weekend I can remember, but that hardly matters when … Continue reading Corn Cakes with Chilli Aioli

Marca: Brûlé-less Brûlé??

Hi guys! How are we all on this wonderful sunny day? It's been a while since we caught up foodie friends, and that would be because I've taken the time to enjoy a full month to celebrate the fact that I've finished my third year at university. This past year was tougher than all the … Continue reading Marca: Brûlé-less Brûlé??

Le Bremner

Annnnnd I'm back. So, I'm just going to put it out there: I think meeting some of Canada's famous chefs is one of the coolest things about being a food-lover. Getting to know chefs who are so talented with what they do is the very explanation of saying, "Hats off to the chef!" And the … Continue reading Le Bremner

montréal pt. 1

Hi friends, It's been a long minute since we last spoke but I am here on a mission to tell you guys about my little trip to the province next door. Instead of celebrating Christmas, my parents decided to treat the family to a staycation to celebrate Family Day--something I think we really needed. In the … Continue reading montréal pt. 1

Autumn in a Bite: Butternut Squash Risotto

Knit cardigans, London Fog lattes, pumpkin patch excursions, apple picking, pie baking, fuzzy socks, the smell of cinnamon, the feel of a cool breeze....those are just some of the things I really love about autumn. It's just such a dang cozy season. If every month could be like October somehow? I'd be down, no complaints. Autumn … Continue reading Autumn in a Bite: Butternut Squash Risotto

“Toujours bon appétit!”

It's Tuesday morning. I'm sitting in the school library waiting for class. I'm killing time. What am I doing? Looking at the Bon Appétit website because I mean, what else do I do with my free time on my laptop? You know those things in life where you do them purely for yourself and you … Continue reading “Toujours bon appétit!”


A happy hey from Ottawa! The first week of my third year is completed and the excitement of what this school year has in store for me is mighty. I can't tell you how great it is to see all of my friends again, considering I was a working zombie for most of the summer. … Continue reading #welcomeback
