I really tried this to cook at home in January and bring my lunch to work every day, which turns out is easy on your bank account but SUPER BORING. Instead I had friends over a couple times and tried out a bunch of new recipes. Here’s a recap: January always kicks off with a […]

December on Planet Byn {2016}

December 31, 2016 Monthly Recaps

December was busy as usual this year: baking cookies, going to work parties, and bringing cardboard boxes to the recycling room because I did 95% of my Christmas shopping online. Here’s the foodie fun I fit in around all that: December was made so much more joyful for me because of a SQUISH Advent Calendar I […]

November on Planet Byn {2016}

November 30, 2016 Monthly Recaps

November is usually a quiet month around here, where I can re-charge and get set for the holidays, and this year was no different, except I was also sick for most of the month, which sucked. Here’s what else was going on: My Mom took me for a belated birthday brunch to The Crepe Kitchen […]

October 31, 2016 Monthly Recaps

I spent the first half of this month preparing for Thanksgiving and the rest of the month celebrating my birthday! There were lots of good eats and fun things happening this month, so here we go: I tried to go to the Luke’s Diner pop-up that Netflix put on so I could grab a coffee but […]

September on Planet Byn {2016}

September 30, 2016 Monthly Recaps

My social policy this summer was to say YES to everything, which meant I had lots of fun, but then basically didn’t feel leaving the house in September. I laid low and cooked almost exclusively out of the new Oh She Glows Everyday (which I’m blogging about over here). There wasn’t much else going on […]

August on Planet Byn {2016}

August 31, 2016 Monthly Recaps

August was long, hot and sad over here on Planet Byn. I won’t get into the details, and instead do what I do best, which is talk about the food: My friend Jenn had me over for a pool day at her new house and I brought this S’mores Pie with me. I haven’t made […]

July 31, 2016 Monthly Recaps

The highlight of this month was my weekend in Chicago, and I’ll have a separate post on that up soon, because I have many things to say about all the food in this great city! In the meantime, here’s what else went on in July: I met my friend Heather down at Harbourfront, and we […]

Snow Queen

Summer has arrived in full effect, and I fully enjoyed it and soaked up as much of it as I could before being knocked out by a summer cold: My friend Weedy and her son Ronan had me over for dinner, and it was such a treat. Weedy’s signature summer cocktail is the Negroni, and […]

Bey on Cake

Have you ever had a month that seemed to go by fast, but when you think about the stuff you did at the beginning of said month, seemed so long ago? That’s how I felt about May. It was long and full of fun stuff to do, which was very necessary to pull me out […]

Sweet Jesus

I feel like April is usually a pretty neutral month where nothing much happens, but this month it was long and weird and emotional. We had lay-offs at my work, a family friend passed away and Beyonce’s new album turned out to be all about Jay Z cheating on her. Here’s what else went down: […]
