A few months back I shared my recipe for one of my absolute favourite foods: Vietnamese chicken pho. Today I want to share with you a new spin I created on this scrumptious soup. It came together during one of my super pho cravings when all I had were bits and pieces of lamb meat […]

To me there is nothing quite like a big warming bowl of soup on a chilly autumn day. From classics such as chicken noodle to Korean jjigae and simple blended soups, I love them all. One soup that sits on my top 5 favorites is Vietnamese Pho. This soup has a clear broth that is made […]

How did this happen, how did summer come to an end already? How is it possible that this Saturday marks the official start of autumn in the Northern Hemisphere? How are we only 3 months away from Christmas and the end of the year? It’s crazy how fast this year has gone by. Well, we […]
