My Current Make List (and a Spinning Plates giveaway)

I imagine that you come here for the food. Perhaps it’s the recipes, the ideas, or the inspiration. Perhaps it’s the photos or the ramblings that I occasionally call writing. First and foremost though, this blog is about food–good and good for you food. If you’re like me, food brings you joy. You love flipping through the latest edition of Bon Appetite, scrolling through your favourite blogs, and plopping yourself down in bookstores and libraries to read through all of the cookbooks. You are the people who will know what I mean when I say that I came across a recipe and just HAD to make it. It’s like I got a bee in my bonnet (Yep, I just said that.) and it’s all that I can think about. This happens so regularly that that I have difficulty keeping up with my own dang demands. I’m not complaining. I recognize the privilege in my dilemma. I am, however, trying to get into the habit of pinning them so that I can keep track and not let them pass me by. Since I don’t want them to pass you by either, I’m sharing a few of my faves, from the may recents that have made it to my Make List.

Since we’re all so into food here, you might also be happy to know that I’m giving away 2 free tickets to the Canadian premiere of Spinning Plates, the critically acclaimed documentary about three extraordinary restaurants and the inspiring people who bring them to life. (This contest is now over. Congratulations to Adam on winning the tickets!) How does that sound?! The tickets are for next Wednesday December 4th at the TIFF Bell Lightbox Theatre here in Toronto. (I’m sorry out-of-towners.) I, for one, have been hearing a lot about the film and am excited to be attending. But don’t listen to me! Check out the trailer to learn more.

    I want to see this film because I would love to hear from people in the industry and because I love food!
