It’s Food ‘n Flix time again! In this monthly group a host picks a movie of their choice that pertains to food. Everyone watches the movie and then makes a recipe which the film inspired. It can be any recipe you want. This month’s pick is hosted by Amy of Amy’s Cooking Adventures, who suggested a fun chick flick, Failure to Launch, for which I made Raspberry Coconut Protein Bars !

Vanillekipferl, an Austrian Cookie

Although mostly associated with Christmas, you can enjoy these delicate crescent shaped Austrian Vanillekipferl cookies year round.

It’s time for the MENA (Middle Eastern & North African) Cooking Group. This monthly group has for goal to help us discover the culture and cuisine of the countries found in these parts of the world. For the month of January we did things a little different: we were asked to choose a traditional cookie from our culture. I made Austrian Vanillekipferl cookies, in honor of a big part of my cultural background but mostly in honor of my Austrian dad who is currently recovering from a successful heart surgery.

Coconut Flour Zucchini Bread

The New Year is a great time to try new ingredients, like healthy and gluten-free coconut flour for this delicious Coconut Flour Zucchini Bread recipe.

#twelveloaves is a great group where we bake a bread with the addition of the monthly theme flavor or ingredient. Since we are in the New Year the theme this month was to make a bread with a New-to-You flour. I knew exactly which flour I was going to pick. I bought it a while back and I had yet to open the bag. My flour is coconut flour and I made a Coconut Flour Zucchini Bread.

Happening Gourmand 2016

The 9th annual Happening Gourmand is just around the corner. From January 7 to February 7 2016, enjoy amazingly priced meals in eight restaurants scattered throughout Old Montreal.

Many people in Montreal like to think that winter is meant to hibernate and stay indoors. Well I have never let a little snow or cold stop me from going out and having a good time. And many Montreal establishments try to get the lazy bears out with clever ideas. One of my favorite ones is the annual Happening Gourmand.

A group of restaurants located in Old Montreal offer very reasonably set priced three-course menus for a few weeks right after the holidays. This year’s Happening Gourmand will take place from January 7 to February 7, 2016. See all the deets below or check out the website!

So go out and enjoy a fabulous meal in Old Montreal. Have you ever taken a walk in Old Montreal on a warm winter night after a fresh snowfall? It is simply magical.
