When leftovers come together LIKE MAGIC

Posted by: andrea tomkins In: Recipes and Food

Don’t you love it when you clean out the fridge and the resulting food comes together in one dish so beautifully you can’t help but think you ARE WINNING THE KITCHEN WARS? Well, this happened the other day, and I can’t stop thinking about it and high-fiving myself: Here’s what happened. I bought a couple […]

Lunch number 1346 and 1347 was a real winner. I liked this little dish so much I made it twice in a row. And as an added bonus I got to use up some leftover quinoa that was kicking around the fridge. Woot! Spicy shrimp, quinoa, avocado bowl for one You will need: five shrimp […]

I haven’t written up a “will they eat it” post for awhile now. I was poking around my recipe archive and remembered how fun it was so I thought I’d revisit when I could. I found a new recipe to add to my repertoire. It’s fast and flavourful and made a pretty good lunch the next […]

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, and a regular contributor to MediaSmarts.ca. 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.
