Guys! I’m guest posting for my pal, Kim, over at Cravings of a Lunatic today! I bet when Kim read my post she was thinkin’: this scampi happening. But that’s what happens when you hand control of your blog over to salmon else. Should I have scaled back on the fish puns? Probably. But I…

Happy birthday, Isa! I hope you’re having a marvellous day. I’m not even going to whine about the frigid temperatures and snow we’ve got here. I’m almost happy that you’re frolicking in the daffodils. Rosie Beaucoup was kind enough to share your crustless quiche recipe with me, and I made some in your honour. You…

Results from the inaugural Peruser’s Druthers poll are in! Sounds like y’all wanna hear about my almost-relationship with Gérard Depardieu, and I’ve gotta tell you: 2.0 was pretty relieved. But I won’t be telling you that story today. Nope. Because I’ve got a little situation with my left hand which makes typing un-fun. I’m lurching around the…

salad, chicken and cruise ships

eat some salad | movita beaucoup

. . . I have two worst-case vacation scenarios in life: Disney World and cruise ships. I mention this because I’m on a break from school this week, and people seem disappointed that I haven’t exercised either of those options to relax. If I were taken hostage by a nefarious street gang, either of those…

. . . I’ve been meaning to give you a baking school update, but going to school full time whilst still working part time is a combination that makes you feel like crud. I’m up at about 5 am each morning, and then I’m at school for the day (sweating, crying, etc.). In the afternoon,…

{movita’s} chili

movita's chili | movita beaucoup

You’ve probably been wondering. Wondering about baking school. Weeks three and four of baking school kicked my ass, complete with a total breakdown in the kitchen last Thursday. My team fell apart – we crashed and burned. Everything that could go wrong, did. I wanted to crawl into the walk-in refrigerator. And when my chef…

movita’s favourite shrimp

movita's favourite shrimp | movita beaucoup

. . . Three weeks from today I will start baking school. So, I was pretty excited when I got a call from Murphy Gear this morning to say that my clogs had arrived. My steel-toed, anti-slip, anti-shock, anti-pretty SIKA safety clogs. Quite a transition in footwear from the last time I went to school. In the…

super easy pasta sauce {topped with shrimp… or not}

. . . 2.0 has been away on a golf trip. He goes every year with a ragtag group of other hairy, golf lovin’ creatures. I can only imagine what their rented condo smells like. It makes my eyes water. When 2.0 goes away, I do my best to eat as much shrimp as possible.…

seasoned flour {homemade shake ‘n bake}

See? I’m not trying to ruin you. I get that your inferior bodies can’t handle the massive quantities of butter and sugar that this here finely tuned machine can. So this one’s for you; no sugar, no caramel. You can munch on a chicken leg, scarf back some baby carrots, and feel pretty good about yourself.…

weekend salmon

Hello, friends. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I’ve slowed down on my posts a little. Not because I don’t want to be here; quite the opposite, actually. I love you in a way that makes other people very uncomfortable. But I’m having a wee problem with writer’s block. Well, not writer’s block exactly.…
