Love the all day breakfast at this hip and cozy diner. Smoked salmon eggs Benny made a great lunch after a stressful weekend caring for a family member in the hospital. Remember to take time out from your demanding life for self-care and hollandaise!
It has been a super busy couple of weeks with events in Calgary. On Wednesday we enjoyed Restaurants for Change, one night a year when Canadian restaurants band together to donate all proceeds from dinner service to feed the hungry through local charities. Read all about it (and my terrific dinner at Cucina) here!

The classic cocktails at our Southern Charm cooking class last night were fabulous! My sister and I went crazy for the Brandy Crusta!

Yum! One of my favourite menu items at Wow! Chicken is the veggie tempura. Julienned veggies and green onion stalks get coated, fried and served in big, crispy piles alongside your favourite flavour of Korean fried chicken.

Celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving in style with this pumpkin-garnished pumpkin pie! My sister didn't want me to document this (perfect, velvety) pie as she was embarrassed about the light scorch on the custard, but I think pie is one of those dishes that can handle some extra char. Bakers are their own worst critics!

Our last lunch in Croatia was at Lari & Penati in Old Zagreb. I loved this plate of steak, onion jam, crispy potato cakes and buttery French beans. Delicious!

I love orange slices in my Coke and I've only ever seen it in European restaurants, never in North America! Does anyone know why this is?

Everyone in Croatia was so sweet about it being our honeymoon! This lovely bottle of Croatian wine (Krauthaker Merlot, to be precise) was waiting for us when we checked in at Hotel Esplanade for easily the fanciest night of our trip. Loved this historic building and neighborhood in Old Zagreb!

This fresh, house made gnocchi with crispy local prosciutto and a sage cream sauce was the perfect finish to a day of hiking in Plitvice Lakes National Park. Love the fresh gnocchi in Croatia!!

One of my favourite things on Hvar was all the fresh, healthy food. This grilled peach and sweet potato salad with soft, creamy feta, mint and balsamic is one to remember!

The souvenir I'm most excited to bring home: preserved Istrian truffles. Croatian truffle season is picking up steam and you can feel the excitement in the air!

Our first food stop on the island of Hvar was the rooftop terrace at Mizarola, where we ate gnocchi and pizza amongst the pomegranate trees and a litter of sweet kittens! This pizza salami made my whole day!

Google told us Luka's was the best place for ice cream in Split and we were not disappointed! Fresh donuts made before our eyes were crammed into a waffle cone with our ice cream of choice - plum cream - then drizzled with melted milk chocolate. YES!

We were so lucky to get squeezed in yesterday at Bokeria Kitchen & Wine Bar, one of the trendiest spots in Split! Loved this starter of toasted gorgonzola, pear, walnuts and honey!

When the counter at the tiny mini market downstairs has better selection than the nice cheese shop back home..

Perfect, lightly battered calamari on Lokrum. The fresh lemon we squeezed over it was nice but the accompanying tartar sauce felt too heavy with these little bites. Great prices though and a very comfortable meal outside amongst the wild rabbits and peafowl!

Breakfast today was a berry cup (about $6 CAD) from the super touristy little morning market in Old Dubrovnik. Very fresh and ripe as well as a nice way to pass the time while we waited for our boat to the island of Lokrum.

Shout out to the restaurant and inn at the renovated train station in Zavala, Bosnia and Herzegovina for treating me like a real adult and serving my Coke in a wine glass today.

Lunch on my first full day in Croatia! We stopped at Azur, a "Croasian" fusion restaurant tucked into a clean, quiet side street. Loved this swordfish with black curry sauce (yellow curry naturally tinted with cuttlefish!) Delicious!

Trying to share a single portion of the butterscotch pudding at Ten Foot Henry has destroyed many families.

The coconut cake was a little dry but the coconut cream frosting more than made up for it! ๐Ÿ˜

My favourite dish at one of Calgary's hottest restaurants, Ten Foot Henry. Love these perfectly seared scallops over a bed of warm tomatoes and sliced green olives.

I'm not a big chip eater, but these ones were paper thin, crisp and came out with a bacon chive ranch dressing. YES!

I had so much fun gorging on antipasto last night at Parker PR's third anniversary and media mingle at the Block Kitchen and Lounge! Their menu beautifully incorporates Italian imports and ideas with local favourites and ingredients.

Love the fresh sushi and maki from the boat bar at Sushi Ginza! It's so much fun waiting for your favourites to come around on the boats and the simple price structure makes it easy to keep track of the damage while you stack your colour-coded plates!

It's Happy Hour 7 days a week at Briggs! We learned tonight that from 4-6pm you can get any of the glass-poured wines for $5 each or $25/bottle if you're feeling frisky.

Apple cinnamon French toast is totally a healthy option, right? Never mind that Touloulou's portions are huge!

How about these Bourbon Street Eggs from Touloulou's in Banff. Two poached eggs on a gigantic crab cake topped with zesty Creole sauce. Love their breakfast, which runs until 2pm every day!

Woke up craving the BC smoked salmon bagel with pickled onions and capers from Coyotes in Banff. Does anyone feel like driving 1.5 hours out there to pick one up for me?

I love trying veggie burgers anywhere they're house made. There are so many different ways to go, but this one was barley-based and held together well with a toasted slice of mozzarella. The sweet potato corn chowder didn't hurt my feelings either!
