If you're at all familiar with Jamaican cuisine or culture you know that we love flavour and spice and that we're a bit extra. You might also know that we love our hot drinks, Horlicks, Milo and Ovaltine were staples in my home growing up.Read More
Breakfast is probably my favourite meal of the day, not just because if done properly it can fuel you for hours and give you the energy and strength you need to power through your day but because it doesn't take a great deal of time and you can technically have 'breakfast ' anytime.

I’m a tea girl all the way. While I can get behind the smell of some coffee when it’s dry, when it’s actually made not so much. I find it overly bitter and one dimensional in it’s taste.

We met up at the Runnymede train station and walked to this little cafe called Baka, I wasn’t too hungry and neither was Asma so we walked down Bloor street.Read More
