The blog entries that pretty accurately reflect the madness going on in my mind!

Get Meat That's Sure to Pop at the Paramount Butcher Shop! — Cooked Lamb Shanks

Get Meat That’s Sure to Pop at the Paramount Butcher Shop!

Once you go rack, you never go back. The problem with eating delicious meat is that lesser cuts just don’t taste the same once you have! When Paramount Fine Foods invited myself and a few other tastemakers to the grand opening of their Yonge & Eglinton Paramount Butcher Shop […]

Chatting with Casey 0004 — It’s Hard Out Here for a Dad

“Just because he got her pregnant doesn’t mean he needs to be a Dad.” “How do you know she wasn’t trying to trap him into a relationship? These women will go to extremes to lock a brother down!” “Why does he have to change his life because something unexpected happened?” The allegation […]

Chatting with Casey 0003 — Give Me Some Room to Fail

Work at something hard enough, and you eventually hit a point where everything starts to click. I’ve been grinding away especially hard at the blog, the job, and everything in between of late, trying to make sense of everything and cut down on the clutter that’s always in the way. And […]

Chatting with Casey 0002 — No Terrible People Allowed!

I was naïve to think a podcast would somehow give me less writing to do every day! If I thought writing solid thousand-word posts were a challenge, imagine how I felt when I realised that there’re ten thousand of ’em in an hour-long podcast! I’d become pretty accomplished as a writer, […]

Chatting with Casey 0001 — Am I Black Enough?

Inspiration can hit you from the strangest places. @doomzTO you have a nice voice, I know that; I was catching up on ZachBusseyShow podcasts, and I <33333 you/your voice so much! — £acey £arissa (@laceyeh) December 6, 2012 @doomzTO if you do, let me know. I have a thing […]

Hallmark Knows Moms — Why I’m Leaving Mother’s Day to the EXPERTS.

I see you out there—you’re just like me: horrible at Mother’s Day. This woman went to all the trouble to bring you into this world, and on the one day each year to honour her, here you are shopping for a gift the week before Mother’s Day! (*Okay, two days—she […]

The Hamilton Beach Sound Shield 950 — The Perfect Blend to My Cooking Conventions!

People often underestimate just how much of a difference a robust set of culinary skills can make in your life! As one who routinely goes out for lunch every day, eating the same ol’ same ol’ gets tiring pretty quickly—you shouldn’t let your neighbourhood dictate what food winds up on […]

Comfort’s Away By a Hop, Skip and a Dance Thanks to Pampers Easy Ups Training Pants!

As a highly logical person, I’ll tell you this—a second kid isn’t double the trouble at all. They’re so much more. The approaches and techniques you use to raise them won’t be exactly the same the second time around—you’ll probably actually improve on them where you can—but you’ll already know which tricks and […]

Getting Boredom in Order with the PLAYMOBIL Arctic Expedition Headquarters!

I think it’s time my four-year-old start reviewing his own toys. I apologise to Swerve PR, but I’ve struggled to write a review of PLAYMOBIL’s Arctic Expedition Headquarters, an elaborate playset designed to get kids’ imaginations running wild. Struggling not because it’s a bad toy—trust me, it’s got more than enough facets […]

Casey Palmer Presents: An Evening with Yannick

A while ago, I had the opportunity to sit down with Yannick Bigourdan, a man who’s many things, but you may know him best as the man behind many of Toronto’s upscale offerings. Carbon Bar. Union Chicken. Amano Pasta. Even LodinG, his foray into offering something that’s not delicious […]
