Hungry Holidays 2018!

Happy holidays, friends! I’ve been battling a serious situation where all my clothes have been mysteriously shrinking over the past week, but don’t worry – I’m not letting it get my spirits down and I’m still indulging my way into 2019. Your girl is writing this post surrounded by empty Purdy’s and Lindor wrappers from…

Christmas in November at Jasper Park Lodge

Christmas is almost here! Honestly, I’m usually pretty grouchy this time of year with all the shopping, crowds and festive chores, but this year has felt very different! Matt and I recently opened up our brand new home to host our second annual Christmas on the Side party (a potluck where we dine exclusively on…

JUSU Bar (Brookfield Place)

I was intrigued when Victoria-based JUSU Bar reached out and offered me a gift card to come try one of their Calgary locations. I had avoided stopping in at their Brookfield Place kiosk so far because all I had heard about it before that point had led me to believe it was a much fancier juice…

Big Taste 2018: Provision

On Thursday, Matt and I were so excited to finally check out Provision as they are participating in Big Taste 2018! (Click here to read about my Big Taste lunch at Market last weekend!) Provision is located inside that cute little train car-sized structure in Central Memorial Park. The interior feels a lot like a…

Winefest 2018

We did it! We celebrated our first Winefest and lived to tell the tale. I’ll do my best to cover the highlights, but I have to admit that my memory of each individual wine has been left a little fuzzy. But speaking of celebrations – happy first anniversary to me! Matt sweetly reminded me this afternoon…

Hungry Holidays 2017!

I hope you and your loved ones have been enjoying a very happy holiday season! Mr. Hungry and I just got home from a few days on the road for family time and are prepping for a little trip to see some friends before the new year! I wanted to touch base with you all…

Pie & Prosecco at Pie Junkie Kensington

When I texted Mr. Hungry to tell him we’d been invited to an event called “Pie and Prosecco”, he immediately wrote back, “Isn’t that basically your dream event?” When I told him it was to celebrate the opening of Pie Junkie’s new Kensington location (tucked right in behind Red’s and across the street from Midtown)…

Hungry in Banff: Juniper Bistro

My mom and Ernie started a new tradition of spending a family weekend in Banff at the end of each summer. This was the second year we did it, and it was so much fun! A major highlight for me was dinner at Juniper Hotel Bistro. Perched on Mt. Norquay, the dining room and huge…

CRMR Four Chefs Dinner

I was definitely the wrong person to hit up when Michelle asked me to talk her out of spending $120 on a ticket to the Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts Four Chefs dinner. Things escalated quickly and we ended up getting a ticket for Matt as well! The concept is simple and fun – CRMR brings…

Pie Junkie & Bakery (Happy Pi Day!)

Happy Pi Day! I care so little about math that I’m getting bored just writing this sentence, but a day to celebrate both math and pie is something I can definitely wrap my head around! Matt was away this week, which meant there was no one at home to impress with my pastry-making skills (read:…
