I love going to farmers markets when cash isn’t too tight. I went to the Trout Lake Farmers Market last week and stumbled across a little bag of morel mushrooms for $12. $12?! Is it worth it?

My vegetarian sister has been going to Chau VeggieExpress for a few years now, but I didn’t have any interest in going until I heard that they started carrying craft beer 🙂 Continue reading Vegetarian Food that Doesn’t Suck: Chau VeggieExpress
Whenever people ask me about pizza in Vancouver, my first and last answer is Pizzeria Farina. Their New York/Neapolitan hybrid really lights my fire. Continue reading Crack Cocaine on a Crust: Pizzeria Farina
