Just last week, Campo Viejo posed the question to us as part of their #LiveUncorked campaign, “how do you express yourself and your passion” by living uncorked? Immediately when us gals at Fat Girl Food Squad thought about what living uncorked meant to us, we knew what we needed to do: gather around for our very own drink and draw!

Cooking with Minute Rice 4

I’m going to level with  you here: when most recipes call for rice, I have absolutely no shame in grabbing a box of Minute Rice.  Like most, I just don’t have the time to put into making a perfectly cooked batch of rice and I don’t own a rice cooker. For years and years, food recipes and chefs have told us that anything instant, frozen or canned is a huge no-no when cooking things from scratch.  But the reality of the…

Kickin’ Ass & Takin’ Names: Karen King of Said the King

4 Apr, 2015  |  by Yuli Scheidt

The work of Karen King first crossed the Toronto Squad’s radar at an Etsy Canada event. We instagrammed her bowls that night, loving the sassy, food loving sentiments. Said the King is her line of housewares, and we’ve been double tapping her photos ever since. Beyond thrilled when Karen asked us to do a shoot using her dishes, I knew just the chubby hands I wanted to shoot those bowls with instantly. Karen’s dishes tend to lean towards the minimal, but…
