CanAsian Ice Cream by Prairie West

Hello all! Sorry, I know it’s been a while! I won’t waste precious time with you on excuses, just know that I’m refreshed and ready to get back at it! What better way to celebrate my new start than with some Canadian-made ice cream! I was so thrilled to be approached for a partnership with Prairie…

Happy Hour at Shark Club

Despite my best efforts, I ended up with a sports fanatic for a husband – the Flames, Raptors, Blue Jays, Broncos, Stampeders… how could anyone choose? In his spare time, he manages his multiple fantasy teams, plays hockey or baseball on various gaming platforms and sifts through online forums for “news” (read: “gossip”) about his…

BFF Cookies

Is it killer lady entrepreneur week at Hungry in Calgary or what? I have a very important new business alert to share with you all! Meet BFF Cookies, the jumbo cookie service that takes orders throughout the week, bakes small batches over the weekend and delivers them right to your door the following Monday. When…

Cricket Powder by Gaia Protein

What do you say to someone who’s just offered to bring you a free packet of powdered crickets? This was a question I never thought I’d have to ask myself, but when the ladies from Calgary-based Gaia Protein reached out a few weeks ago to see what I thought about their product, I was immediately nervous! I’m…

Little Chief at Grey Eagle Resort

We were overdue for a double date with our friends, Zach and Nicole, and conveniently had been invited by TopDish.ca to Little Chief, a restaurant located in the Tsuut’ina Nation-operated Grey Eagle Resort & Casino. None of us had tried them before, so away we went with no expectations and big appetites. We had been given a…

Scarpetta Italian Eatery

You may have seen on social media or on previous blog posts that I’ve been doing a bit of collaboration with TopDish.ca – things like submitting photos and ratings, winning gift cards in their draws (!) and most recently partnering with them to highlight some of Calgary’s unsung culinary gems. Top Dish recently partnered with Scarpetta…

Lunch Bowls at Two Penny

Have you heard about YYC Food and Drink Experience? It’s the new prix fixe festival in town, running this year from March 1 – 10 at restaurants all over the city. They have some fancy fine dining events going on in conjunction with the fest, but for the rest of us, we can enjoy set…

Hungry Abroad: San Francisco

Guys, we need to talk about San Francisco. When we made a plan with Matt’s parents to go there for a family-business-related trade show, I was prepared for the beautiful and distinctive neighbourhoods. I knew about the overcast weather. I expected paper straws and compostable cups galore (yay!). I was excited about historic points of…

Foodie Fiesta at StrEATS Braeside

What have you heard about StrEATS? I knew very little about the small franchise when I was invited to last night’s fiesta, but it turns out there’s a lot of great stuff going on over there! From tacos and burritos to their signature poutines and featured bao, StrEATS definitely seems focused on keeping things fresh! Food…

Hungry Abroad: Omakase, San Francisco

Guys, amazing news. First, Matt and I have been in each other’s lives for four years now (!!) and he hasn’t even figured out that this is all a big scam and he could actually have been married to someone way nicer by now – perhaps someone who doesn’t angrily whisper at him to “hold…

Brunch at Cleaver

As I mentioned in my post about New Year’s Eve, we were recently graced with a visit by four of our dear friends from Edmonton. This group in particular (which includes Leduc from Let’sEatYEG.com) loves trying new restaurants every time they’re in Calgary, so we were delighted to see Cleaver was open for brunch on a…

Our 2019 Resolutions

Before I say anything else, you need to know that all the photos in this post were taken by my dear friend Jamie, who takes lots of nice photos – check out his Instagram account for more beautiful shots, particularly his cityscapes! I’m really excited about my goal for 2019 – in addition to a…
