I love Middle Eastern food and when the word “Syria” or “Israel” appears in the news, sometimes I just start to drool and think “mmmmmm hummus…” Offended? Don’t be.

Kitchen Bitchin’: Salad isn’t just for skinny girls

Posted October 1, 2012 by Melanie

Loving salad really isn’t anything to be ashamed of. At least that’s what I used to believe living the hipster life in Montreal—pot-lucks with friends, picnics in Parc Lafontaine, terrace hopping on St. Denis… But now I live in England, and well, I guess being a vegetarian is a bit more of an anomaly.
