Awhile back I had no groceries or lunch ideas, so I decided to check out the big salad bar at Farm Boy. Have you ever tried it? It’s pretty darn good. I went in with a strategy: to skip the leafy green offerings and sample my way through the grain and veggie dishes instead. My instincts […]

Looking for a new recipe to try? This one is a keeper, and I’m actually looking forward to the leftovers! This is a Thai Tofu Quinoa Bowl from Chatelaine. You can grab the recipe right here.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (17) and Sarah (15). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
