On Foodists.ca: Ryza Prize Pack Contest
We are a mostly dairy-free household these days, since we’ve discovered that Gerry is lactose-intolerant.  Oh sure, he’ll binge on cheese like Saturday night, but it’s really not good for him. And more and more, it’s not good for me either. So when Mackenzie over at Argyle Communcations offered to send me a Ryza Rice Milk Prize Pack so [...]

Lex’s Busy Week In Media

Lex’s Busy Week In Media
This week was a surprisingly busy week for me in media. Especially since I didn’t really do anything media-worthy this week. Oh sure, I’m working on HoHoTO again, but none of this attention came from that. Here’s where I showed up: National Post – Can Seaton House remake save George Street? I’m asked my opinion as longtime area resident [...]

What Exactly Is Foam? [In The Kitchen]
Lately it seems to be frothing up all over the place, but I just don’t know what a “foam” is. I’ve seen “tomato foam” on restaurant menus, “cherry foam” on a catering menu and assorted “foams” have garnished the dishes of the antagonist on my latest television addiction – Top Chef.

Mushroom on my 'Za Here’s a quick tip for those of you who, like me, occasionally forget to salt the pizza dough before you leave it to rise.

In The Kitchen: Faux Pho Bo

In The Kitchen: Faux Pho Bo
Sometimes Chinatown simply isn’t close enough.  Especially when there’s freezing rain out there and I’m hungry! So I had to make my own Pho and it ROCKED! Of course, even though it’s my recipe, I didn’t follow it to the letter.  I had caramelized onions & mushrooms left over from the day before, so my soup [...]

Making Rum Toddy

Okay, here’s the scoop.  We’ve been sick – feverish, stuck in bed, horking up a lung, getting behind in work, weak as kitten [...]

I’ve just plunked my second post up on In The Kitchen. (yes, yes, I’m keen) This time I’ve repurposed an earlier post which was inspired by June, who was inspired by Jeani to respond to the BBC’s reader’s poll of 50 Things to Eat Before You Die. When I sent in my first post, the French Onion Soup recipe [...]

#100 Just Write aka Someone’s In The Kitchen with Lexa
For my final NaBloPoMo post I thought it was time to share why I needed a bio.  Especially since… [drum roll please] I’ve been invited to be the Toronto correspondent for In The Kitchen, a Vancouver-based food blog published by Industrial Brand Creative.  You may remember my ill-fated brush with street meat on CBC’s Sounds L [...]

50 Things To Eat Before You Die
Inspired by June, who was inspired by Jeani, who was inspired by the BBC readers poll. Now this is a poll I can get behind!  Prepare for oversharing… and you know if I’m sharing, I’m asking you to spill the beans too. Note: I’ve left the links to BBC in so you can figure out what it is if you don’t know. 1. Fres [...]
