A HelloFresh review

So, this week I tried HelloFresh, the delivery grocery/meal plan service that is available in Canada and the USA.  As such, I thought I’d review that experience. (Also, this isn’t an ad. I would totally take a sponsorship if it was available though 😉 ). But, seriously, as an introduction, let me first set the…

Recipes for beginners: the best sloppy joe ever

So, I mentioned I was going to get around to posting some of my recipes of food that I’ve been recently and was very satisfied with. I’m new to this whole ‘cooking’ magic, and what I found when I was making things from my cookbook or online was that I often had to look up…

Med school weekend (or free time hasn’t died quite yet!)
