cookbook giveaway: ancient grains for modern meals

If I showed you around my house today, you would find dozens and dozens of cookbooks stacked on my bookcases, kitchen shelves and side tables. I really treasure each and every one of them and have hand-picked them all individually, creating what I consider to be a pretty perfect cookbook collection!

Ancient Grains for Modern Meals is one of those great cookbooks you want to browse just before deciding what meals to make for the week. For anyone a little weary of cooking with whole grains … this is the book for you! Author Maria Speck gives readers useful tips to use whole grains in a variety of recipes, from savoury to sweet – and we’re giving away a copy!

missoni for target madness at the nyc launch party

My love for Missoni is well-documented on the pages of Style At Home – just take a look at September’s Style News Palette and my apartment as seen in the June issue and the proof is in the pudding. So you can imagine my delight when a hook-up through Target’s Minneapolis headquarters resulted in my mother and I being invited to the New York City launch party of the Missoni for Target collection on Wednesday night!

modern decor for babies

039 modern decor for babies

When I was designing my nursery I came across Monte, a Canadian manufacturer who makes gliders that fit into more modern home decor. It was refreshing to know that there were companies out there that took modern approaches to baby items. Although we didn’t get our glider from them, we bought our son Oscar this little Cubino chair from them for our TV room. Oscar is already in love (see him pictured above in it!)

I fell in love with the the charcoal and green colour combo as it was soft and soothing and went with the rest of the decor in our house.

Monte Cubino Chair, $109 + shipping.

taking the plunge: my first bite of a deep-fried oreo

Having lived in Toronto for only a handful of months, there are a lot of places that I have not yet had a chance to visit. I was told by a myriad of people that going to the CNE was a must. With only a few weeks of warm weather left, I finally made my way to the Ex this past Sunday.  I saw the farm animals, walked through all the attractions and games and, maybe most importantly, had my first bite of a deep-fried Oreo.
