Easily one of my favorite dishes to prepare whether it be for breakfast or dinner is hash– a delicious medley of bite-sized vegetables which when mixed together should create a flavour explosion greater than the sum of it’s parts! Maybe I’m making it sound complicated. Go to the market, buy some tasty veggies (working according to seasons usually works best), cook ’em together and voila! Serve
This place was so good I had to break my blogging hiatus (sorry about being MIA) to tell the world about it. Part and Parcel is located in Quadra Village (corner of Quadra and Hillside). It’s a casual bistro style restaurant with a menu that really focuses on local and sustainable cuisine.

I’ve been meaning to try this restaurant for a while now after hearing so many rave reviews from friends. The Clay Pigeon is a cute Paris inspired bistro on the corner of Blanshard and Broughton in downtown Victoria. I ate here last week with my mom and bother.

I have wanted to do this ‘Best Bacon’ challenge for months now so having fellow Fancy Frite, Taylor, in town was the perfect opportunity. It’s common knowledge that here in Victoria Red Barn Market bacon is the best bacon you can get…or is it?! The Mission Find out where to buy the best bacon in Victoria. Is it Red Barn Market, is it a local butcher, or is it the grocery store? The Bacon Start
Skillet Diner is definitely one of those reliable, good quality all-day breakfast/lunch/dinner spots in Capitol Hill that serves up hearty hangover-worthy meals. I love bringing out of town guests who are visiting for the weekend here, to get a little taste of local Seattle culture. The restaurant itself is bright and cheerful, always packed to the rafters with happy couples, families, and groups of friends meeting f
