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

Posted July 10, 2012 by Melanie

Fuck Loblaws. Seriously. If you’ve ever been inside an independent grocery store (and I don’t mean IGA) you’d know how much money you could save by just supporting your local immigrants. Local independent grocery stores are everywhere. When I lived in Montreal my favorite places to shop were in the little Indian grocers on Jean […]

#MTLife: Le Saloon Turns 20

Posted July 24, 2012 by Blair

Welcome to #MTLife, a little column about my adventures in Montreal. For my first foray as a writer for the Gaily, I wanted to write about my night out at an event celebrating the 20th anniversary of Le Saloon, the best restaurant in the village (IMHO) and still after 20 years, the place to see […]

TACO Tongue Trials: Go Try Maïs – Now!

Posted March 14, 2013 by Caitlin

  When you’re trying to adhere to a lighter fare lifestyle, it can be challenging to find a restaurant choice that won’t leave you feeling gluttonous, nevermind-I’m-not-coming-out-tonight, full feeling.

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.

DISH THIS: Pomegranate And Orange French Toast

Posted December 4, 2011 by Erika

When it comes down to a breakfast item, I will 95% of the time pick salty over sweet. Don’t get me wrong, I will never turn down a pancake or french toast or waffle, but I prefer them as a side to my eggs, and cheese and toast, etc. You can see why I am […]

Evan’s Kitchen: Adventures with Mushrooms

Posted June 22, 2011 by Evan

A while back I received a rather pricey bottle of wine from my friend Andrea as a birthday gift. She gave it to me with the caveat that I had to make her dinner to pair with the wine. At first I thought this was a great idea until I remembered: 1. That was totally […]

Posted June 6, 2011 by Evan

Let’s face it. Summer is the drinking season. Whether it’s enjoying beer and people watching on a terasse or a delicious minty mojito, our livers get a lot more exercise with the warm weather. Gone are the movie nights under blankets sipping tea. Let’s go drink sangria in the park! With this in mind here are some of […]
