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 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 […]

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: […]

Egg Cookies

There was so much fun baking to do this month with St. Patrick’s Day and Easter falling within a week or so of each other. It was a busy time in and out of the kitchen, and here’s what went down: I surprised my friend Carole at The Depanneur, where she was hosting a drop […]

Birthday Doughnuts

Without a doubt, this was the easiest February in recent history. Normally this is my most dreaded month of the year, but with only one -30 day, and no big dumps of snow, I sailed through with my mental health in tact! Had some fun along the way too: The month kicked off with a […]

Garlic Cheese Fries

For the second year in a row, it was a pretty easy January over here! No crazy cold days or huge dumps of snow meant I was still in pretty good cheer throughout the month. Because I was back in the meal-planning/cooking dinners at home routine, I didn’t get out that much, but here’s what […]

Best Instas of the Year

December was totally crazy with holiday parties, dinners with friends, preparing for Champagne & Cookies and getting ready for Christmas. I’ll hit you with the highlights: I had a catch-up dinner at Trevor with my friend Heather, and we ordered all the bar snacks, my favourite of which was the buffalo fried cauliflower with dill […]
