Review + Giveaway: SideQuests Adventure Inc. Edmonton Escape Rooms

SideQuests Adventure Inc Edmonton Escape Rooms

Happy New Year everyone! I was hoping my first post of 2017 would be some type of thoughtful recap of the past year and just as thoughtful look-ahead to the coming year, but I haven’t really had a chance to put together those thoughtful thoughts, so instead I’m going to blab on about some more Edmonton escape games. :)  I always love when an escape room introduces new rules or new types of…

Recap: 3rd Annual Interactive Blogger Dinner at the Fairmont Macdonald

Fairmont Hotel Macdonald - Interactive Blogger Dinner - Edmonton

This year I was fortunate enough to be invited back to the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald’s 3rd Annual Interactive Blogger Dinner! The behind-the-scenes cooking experience puts me and four other food lovers inside the Fairmont’s kitchens, working alongside the hotel’s talented chefs to create a delicious, three-course meal that we also get to eat! It’s such a fun (and tasty) experience that I’ve suggested the Fairmont hold it as a regular, ticketed event!…

Review: LOVEPIZZA

LovePizza Edmonton - Pizza - Thin Crust - Downtown

There’s a new pizza joint in town and I love it! LOVEPIZZA (located at 10196 109 Street) specializes in flatbread/thin-crust style pizzas and opened late January downtown in the busy shopping centre at the intersection of Jasper and 109 Street. Inside LOVEPIZZA, it’s very slick, clean and modern – very black, white and bright. It’s got a similar concept to Urbano Pizza – where you head up to the counter to order from…

Review: Walia Ethiopian Restaurant

Walia Ethnic Ethiopian Restaurant - 124 Street - Edmonton

124 Street has quickly become one of my favourite spots to dine – with some amazing restaurants lining the popular strip. The newest Ethiopian restaurant to open on 124 Street is no exception. This week I joined some of my lovely work friends for lunch at the new Walia Ethnic Ethiopian Restaurant (located at 10630 124 Street). Walia has only been open for two months, and my friend Alyssa (who…

Review: XIX (Nineteen) – Revisited

Last weekend I had the pleasure of dining at XIX Nineteen (5940 Mullen Way) for the first time since November – when I was invited to try some of the restaurant’s dishes at a special preview event. (Read about that dinner here!) I had such an amazing time at the preview dinner, I had been wanting to return to XIX Nineteen sooner but didn’t get the chance to until last…

  • Last summer one of my favourite food vendors at the Sturgeon County Bounty Festival was #SavioursCafeBistro! They are a small, family-owned Ethiopian restaurant/cafe in @cityofstalbert. Today I finally made it out to try their restaurant with @tjpollmann! We got hands on, sharing the delicious vegetarian injera platter with beets, chickpeas, red lentils, salad, and cabbage + spinach & chicken with caramelized onions and garlic! 🤤 We also had their chicken soup, which was real tasty. 💖
Really nice little spot.

  • The last time I posted about the delicious and super affordable $11 five piece chicken set with two sides and a drink from @seoulfriedchicken, I didn’t realize they were closed for vacation and a lot of you messaged me and said you tried to go and were sad to find out they were closed lol. SO, I’M SORRY 😭😂💖 BUT! I’m happy to say they are no longer on vacation. 😄 I had a lovely lunch with @heyvanessaleigh there today! THE PESTO MAC AND CHEESE IS MY FAVOURITE MAC AND CHEESE EVER. I could eat it every single day. 🤤😍🤤😍🤤

• skating ⛸ in town and hiking #JohnstonCanyon with @kathytrinhle & @big_mitchy16! 🏃🏻‍♀️🏃🏻‍♂️
Perfect little getaway! 🏔💖

  • Convinced @mikethyking to stop at a couple of #InstagrammableWalls we missed on our last Calgary visit. 😜😊📸 He’s a great #InstagramHusband. We also visited a pop-up wall students worked on at @itsallatthejube (swipe 👈🏻 to see). They said the project was inspired by my Guide to #IGWallsofYYC blog post! 🙏🏻 When blogs/social media inspire action... 💕 It was really cool to see (you can see it too! On display til Mar 30). 💖

  • This #longweekend @mikethyking & I are in Calgary & Banff! I was excited to try sandwich shop & deli @EmpireProvisions and it did not disappoint! 🐷 The porchetta sandwich with rosemary garlic salsa verde was UNBELIEVABLE. One of those first bite makes you exclaim oh my god, kind of dishes. 🤤🙏🏻Must return to try their other sandwiches!! Thanks for the recommendation @jaypeacee! Happy Long Weekend everyone!!

  • Ahead of #ValentinesDay 💕, I thought I’d throw back to this super cute photo of Olive on her Valentine’s spaghetti date with Australian Labradoodle Flynn! He didn’t really share the noodles. They’re no longer together. 👀😂 Click the link in my bio for some Valentine’s (or galentines or palentines) #ExploreEdmonton date ideas I shared on @CTVEdmonton this week! 💗

  • Our regular order at @kazoku_yeg is their delicious tonkotsu black garlic ramen 🍜 (for Mike) & the tonkatsu curry pork 🍛 (for me!) This weekend we added their chicken karaage, which is also wonderful. We love Kazoku! 💕
