On Location | Power of Babel

It's been so much fun working with this incredibly talented team of filmmakers for this comedy, which we've shot in a few locations around Toronto and Hamilton. You can't see it in this shot, but Director of Photography Rock's drone is capturing the aerial view of me ticketing this unsuspecting car... and apparently ticketing it so convincingly that someone thought I was really a police officer. Can't wait for this to come out, the footage I've seen so far is terrific. Rosie :)

Opening Soon in Toronto... Tibetan Paper & Handicraft

Opening soon at 609B Bloor Street West (south side) is Tibetan Paper & Handicraft. I'm excited for this one, as I love beautiful, colourful wrapping paper and handmade cards. This lovely shop imports high quality, ecologically friendly Tibetan Himalayan handmade papers directly from Nepal and India. It's on the south side, not far from the Paradise Theatre. Rosie :)

The Best Almond Flour For Keto Baking & Frying

I've baked and fried with a lot of different almond flours, but my favourite for making a keto dish is Anita's Organic. If you are looking for the best vegan almond flour, this is the one. Anita's is made from organic almonds, and I find that when I fry with it, it's light and crisps up perfectly. Recently I made a keto chicken parm recipe using it, and it was so easy to work with.

This was a really easy dish to make, just beat some eggs, press the chicken breasts (cut into thin cutlets) firmly in the Anita's Organic Almond Flour, which I've used instead of the traditional breadcrumbs. I like a lot of Italian seasoning, garlic and parmesan, but you can really add whatever spices you like.

After you've fried the cutlets, put them into a baking pan, cover with tomato sauce and cheese, and bake at 350. I add tons of basil after and it's just delicious.

The best price I've see for Anita's Almond Flour is online at House of Wellness. It's a made in Canada product from a Canadian company which offers a huge selection of products for those cooking for gluten-free diets. Enjoy! Rosie :)

Recently for Sunday lunch we headed out to pick up some Stush Patties at the Cheese Boutique food truck on Ripley Avenue. If you haven't had a Stush patty yet, find yourself one asap because they are delicious. There are a variety of flavours including beef, jerk chicken, lentil and veggies, swiss chard, curried shrimp, jerk soy chik, jerk pulled pork and ackee & salted tofu patties... all made with top quality, natural ingredients. So, so good.

The brilliant "patty reinventor" Opal Rowe makes a patty that is bursting with flavour. Stush primarily sells to retailers and food service businesses, but you can order directly from the Stush Patties website. Her amazing team pops up all over the city so be sure to follow Stush on Instagram to find out where they will be next, and get there fast because these flaky delicious pockets of flavour sell out fast. Rosie :)
