I AM NOT A FOODIE: The Return to G… for Gelato and Espresso Bar!

As father to an infant, my expectations shot through the roof for my dining experience compared to where they were a year ago.  Now that my evenings away from home have plummeted in frequency, I want every time I’m out to be an amazing one, and I pity the establishment who’s lacking in […]

#DIYSandwich — Quick and Easy Summer Burger — Chipotle Mayo — Ingredients

I AM NOT A FOODIE: Celebrating a #DIYSandwich Summer with Burgers Courtesy of Dempster’s Buns!

@CaseP Mayo sandwich with some Trini pepper sauce. Yeah, Mayo. Sandwich. You think I built this belly with damn lettuce? — D. Ramnarine (@1goatroti) July 31, 2014 I’ve come a long way since my culinary inclinations as a kid, where I’d come home from school to a Miracle […]

#SamInHand — Cooking with Sam Adams Beer — Banner

I AM NOT A FOODIE: #SamInHand Has Me Cooking With Sam Adams Beer!

As a guy who rarely cooks, I’m guessing that God’s having none of that and making sure I can actually provide for my family. Some time ago, I shared the story of my hatred for cooking, sure I’d avoid the kitchen for the rest of my earthbound years. But […]

Dempster's DIYSandwich — Sloppy Joes — Final Sandwich

I AM NOT A FOODIE: The Savoury Sloppy Joe Solution!

This month’s Dempster’s sandwich gave me a little lesson in supply, demand, and the art of improvisation. Originally, we wanted to rock some mean burgers. Sarah and I are part of a crew that does semi-regular Danforth Dinners, a dinner party for 8-10 where we take turns hosting to […]

I AM NOT A FOODIE: The #DIYSandwich, Round 1 — Pulling the Pork — The Final Pulled Pork Sandwich

I AM NOT A FOODIE: The #DIYSandwich, Round 1 — Pulling the Pork

If one thing unifies my friends and I, it’s food. Sarah’s always said that I merely eat to live — I don’t salivate at the thought of delicious meals, but let’s get one thing straight — I know delicious food when I taste it! Since becoming a parent, I […]

I AM NOT A FOODIE: A Chance to WIN with Dempster’s #DIYSandwich!

For the past 6 years, I’ve had a unique job that sees a site change every 6 months or so. Most recently, I was banished exiled transferred to Yonge & Finch, where I quickly found the lunch options rather… limited*. So to save money and keep me healthy, […]

#BuytopiaPaintNite — Paint Nite Toronto — Banu — Group Shot — All the Buytopia Inner Circle Bloggers and their works of art!

We Paint Like the BOMB, Though at Paint Nite Toronto!

Once upon a time, drawing was all I’d ever do. I carried sketchbooks and supplies wherever I went, transforming my imagination into all sorts of pieces. I don’t know when I stopped, but if you’ve got a good thing going, never stop, because you never know when you’ll […]

#BramptonTweetup — Pulled Pork and Beanasaurus

I AM NOT A FOODIE: #BramptonTweetup at Sul Irmaos Smokehouse

Above all else, #BramptonTweetup taught me never to say never, ’cause you never know when you’ll be eating those words. Maybe Brampton gets worse a reputation than it deserves. In addition to the fact that there’s all too many Torontonians who couldn’t point to Brampton on a map, […]

TacoTweetup — Kevin Kelly and James Rubec wearing sombreros

I AM NOT A FOODIE: Yo Quiero TacoTweetup!

Once upon a time, I kept my calendar booked solid with events around Toronto, revelling in everything that social media had to offer! But life doesn’t stand still, and we learn to choose where we show up as time grows more precious. With a baby on the way […]

Viamede Resort & Dining — Boat Cruise — A Cloudy Day at Viamede

All You Need’s at Viamede

If you’re like me and from big, bad Toronto, you don’t do the outdoor thing too often. Before dating Sarah, I never imagined I’d be climbing mountains, camping with my in-laws or taking extended leaves from my electronics. I was originally invited to Viamede Resort as part of a zombie survival-themed […]
