Why drive isn’t enough

This might be a controversial post, but it's coming out of my own experiences as a college student. In my province (Quebec) you complete a 2 year college program after the 11th grade, before jumping into the second year of a university program.

Rich, dense, (vegan) chocolate cake

The first thing I must say is that I didn't think up the idea of this recipe on my own. I found Sam Turnbull's chocolate cake recipe, and and used it as a base to make my own recipe.

Goat Cheese Grilled Sandwich

This is a recipe I came up with on the stop when I was about 10 or 12. My dad had told me to make a good sandwich for my mom (they both worked very hard), so I set about working on a creation. Turns out, it was pretty good. It's vegetarian, but not vegan.… Continue reading Goat Cheese Grilled Sandwich
