Holiday Bake-it-yourself

This year I didn't have the energy to do my usual Christmas baking (8 dozen each of 6 to 8 varieties of cookies).

These were a hit and were much less labour intensive!

Kwong Chow Noodle House - great deal lunch deal - $5.75

Last Saturday after the Heritage Hall market, we went to Kwong Chow for a cheap and tasty lunch. For $5.75 you get slow simmered Chinese soup, one of their lunch specials and coffee.

Here's what we had:

Congee with beef (or was it chicken :-) ! ?)

Pinpin value meals - highly recommended

ChocolaTas Belgian Chocolate

While vending Midnight Kitchen cookie dough at Granville Island over the past few weeks, I've had the opportunity to get to know many talented local food producers. I am in love with the chocolates made by ChocolaTas! The chocolates are stunningly beautiful and equally delectable. Check them out this weekend until Sunday.


Green Village has great northern style Chinese food - ignore the Courier's Cheap Eats "review"

Despite what the Courier said in a recent Green Village "review" in their Cheap Eats section, Green Village is an amazing place for cheap, flavourful northern style Chinese food, you just have to know what to order.
