Nota Bene

If someone tells you they don't want to go grab some delicious food after work, don't be their friend. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

Happy September!

Happy September, beautiful people!

I can't believe fall is just around the corner. 
I'm not ready to give up my gelato-patio eating days!

I've been really busy these past couple of weeks, so there hasn't been much action here.
but I hope to be back with some posts super soon.

Stay tuned, xo


Thoroughbred Food & Drink

*Pow pow* goes Thoroughbred's Kung Pao Cauliflower

Watch it, these little guys pack a mean punch, especially with that spicy kick after.

This is a belated post, as I made my way to Thoroughbred for summerlicious back in July.


GIVEAWAY: Tickets to the 2015 Toronto Food & Wine Festival

Do you like food? Do you like wine?

Well, you're in luck!!

I've partnered up with the Toronto Food & Wine Festival 
to give away a pair of tickets to this delicious sounding event.

These tickets not only include general admission to the festival, but you will also gain access to the Grand Tasting Pavilion and some celeb chef events.

What: Toronto Food & Wine Festival
When: September 18 - 20, 2015

& Why? Here are 5 Reasons You Need to Visit Toronto FOOD & WINE Festival 2015:

1. Curtis Stone, Tyler Florence, Gail Simmons, Chuck Hughes, Roger Mooking, Mark McEwan, Antonio Park and many more will be taking to the stages for demos, talks and workshops throughout the three-day event.

2. You’ll be able to sample, sip and savour all the flavours from 130 purveyors of premium products, fine foods and beverages from Ontario, Canada and around the world in the Grand Tasting Pavilion – presented by PC Black Label.
