Portland, ME

Ever feel like having fresh seafood? Not just for one day, but for a whole weekend? Well, if you ever do, drive to Portland, Maine and get your fix. We drove down to Portland for the weekend and came back with more than just seafood in our bellies. Because it happens to be a very…

Momo to the Rescue

Tasty Pastry at C Sweet

We each have a BIG sweet tooth, so it’s always a source of joy when we discover a new pastry shop. What’s even better is when that pastry shop actually puts in the effort to make cakes and pies and pastries and other goodies with great care and thought.  This is what we found with…

Dynamic dinner and show at Le Balcon

“Dinner and a show” is a plain description of a night out, but it doesn’t have to be a plain experience at all. That was definitely our experience at Le Balcon, a dinner-theatre that’s right downtown 🙂 . It’s deep inside a pretty big church on Ste. Catherine Street, two blocks away from the Bay….

Amazing Afghan Food… in (North) America

How to Deal with the Pain of Winter

  [Mariam]: I hate winter! Well, I think most people hate winter, especially long & cold ones (5 months and an average of -15 in Montreal, ouuff ). [Henry]: Heeeey! I don’t hate winter. [Mariam]: That’s because you’re crazy 😜. Anyways, I hate it so much that I constantly need distraction from it or I may lose my mind….

The Joy of Kinka

Well, we’re back from Ethiopia! Getting married in Addis Ababa was quite the exciting event. Surrounded by so many family and friends and love and laughter was momentous and unforgettable. Now we’re back – regular jobs, regular life, regular eating – and so here’s a more “typical” post on a neat new place we discovered:…
