Good Eats Friday!

Posted by: andrea tomkins In: Recipes and Food

Weekends are when many of us recharge our batteries and grocery shop. So for the next while there’s going to be a recipe-related post here at the Fishbowl. Every Friday I’ll be posting a couple great recipe ideas from fellow foodie peeps that have made it to my “must try” list.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. 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.
