It was hot. It was steamy. But the weather, as we welcomed the official start of summer, certainly didn’t stop about 1000 of Toronto’s foodies to gather in a parking lot last Wednesday evening for some delicious food and creative designs, all for the sake of a good cause.
Aptly called the Night Market—taking note from street night markets of the world—the event was hosted by The Stop Community Food Centre, and paired food and drinks with design. Each participating vendor’s booth was custom designed by local designers and design students, with the majority of the booths being built from reclaimed materials.

Rarely am I afforded a whole day to play in the kitchen, but I recently found some time to do just that. A friend and I occasionally like to get together for a cooking day, where we peruse through our respective, hefty cookbook collections and come up with a multi-course meal to cook and enjoy. With beautiful produce starting to make their appearances at our local farmer's markets, we decided to go for a vegetable-heavy, Italian-inspired menu, keeping the meal light and fresh.

While I love a big, grand brunch on Sunday mornings, there are also those Sundays when I just want it to be the truly ultimate lazy Sunday. Sleeping in, and then staying in bed just a little longer after I've woken up. Plodding around in my PJs all day. Catching up on my favourite magazine or a book with a cup of coffee...or two. And an easy brunch dish that won't have me slaving in the kitchen for more than ten minutes.
