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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]
