Spring Cleanse

Spring is in the air, and I’ve decided that there is no better time than now to do some spring-cleaning-of-my-body. I’ll be doing this not by dieting, but by incorporating…

Warm Up (Mushroom Risotto with Thyme and Cheddar)

It’s that time of year again, Montreal! You know, that season that isn’t quite a season? For those of you who don’t live here, let me fill you in. We’ve…
