Kyle’s Summer Grilling Tips: Ribs of Lamb & Summery Quinoa Salad

Posted June 7, 2011 by Kyle

Summer is here and that means GRILLIN’ season. That being said, I have been known to shovel the snow off my BBQ and grill a steak in -20 degrees weather. But that’s just me.

Posted August 2, 2012 by Melanie

You know who I’m talking about. It’s not enough that you distractedly clicked through 239 of their photos on facebook, but they insist on coming over so they can show you the EXTENDED iPhoto album plus their Photoshopped favorites. All the while bragging about all the completely “un-touristy” shit they did. “We went to the […]

Kitchen Bitchin’: Fuck Loblaws! How To Throw An Indian Themed Dinner Party for Under $30

Posted July 10, 2012 by Melanie
