STILL LIGHT CENTRE - Thai Yoga Massage Course


I had the opportunity to attend a 5 hour Introduction to Thai Yoga Massage course at the Still Light Centre (276 Carlaw) this past Saturday and wanted to share with everyone here how awesome it was. I highly, HIGHLY recommend it.


The class I went to is an introductory course to a 20 minute sequence that you and a partner learn together, or you can go on your own and pair up with another solo person there, which is what I did.  If you're good at making fast…

Caldo Verde


One of my neighbours is kind enough to give me cast offs from her local produce delivery box.  When certain vegetables come into season they tend to dominate her deliveries.  In return for some veggies she is sick and tired of cooking I make a different dish and share the results…

Fast Lemon and Oregano Chicken

As summer winds down, anyone with an herb garden will find themselves with an overwhelming supply of herbs to be used up before autumn.  Most basil will have flowered and should have been already turned into pesto.  Now is the time to gather up the last of the parsley for tabbouleh.  Other herbs can be…

The Power of Paint!

A few weekends ago, Christian and I decided that it was time. It was time to deal with the unfortunate disaster that is commonly referred to as "the garage". 

Now, let me fill you in on something: in downtown Toronto, if you have a garage, that is pretty awesome.  When our area was built in the 30s, the houses were made to back onto a laneway, and little…

Check out my new wheels from CORE

My life is now complete. A year ago we purchased our first home, 2 weeks ago Keith and I tied the knot, and 2 days ago I purchased my new bike! Living in Toronto without a bicycle never felt right. Neither did pulling up to local farmer’s markets in my Acura. In my mind, a bike was a necessity as a city dweller, especially in a city with inadequate public transportation. It just took me 8 years to make the move.…

Restaurant Review - Frankly Eatery

Frankly, I should keep my mouth shut, but I thought you all deserved to know there’s an awesome eatery in town. So awesome, it has earned a score of 100% on Urbanspoon. Need I say more? No, but I will anyway.

My neighbourhood just keeps getting better and better. With every restaurant I visit and every bite I take. Although, it seems to be the brunch spots…

Want Fresh Fish? Get Hooked!

If you’re a Toronto east-ender and a fish-eater, read on! You’re about to get “Hooked” on the best fish in town!

Ok west-enders, if you muster up the energy to venture past the DVP, you can read on too.:)

So, I went for a run this morning and passed one of the new shops in Leslieville – Hooked - which sells fish and seafood as the name implies (very cute). I grabbed some cash and hurried back…

Leslieville Local Business Marketing - 10 ways to use

Posted by Nolin (Admin) on February 3, 2011 at 12:00pm 4 Comments

When I launched this site in early 2009, one of the compelling reasons for doing so was that I was struck by how many of the businesses in Leslieville are locally owned and operated.  Another big observation was (and still is) how proud most…
