Heaven is a Place on Earth: 2nd Annual LA Cookie Con and Sweets Show

12 Dec, 2015  |  by Linda Dianne

While Los Angeles may be known to most non-Angelinos as a low-fat, no-fat, vegan, green juice paradise, the City of Angels also knows a pâte sucrée from a pâte à choux. And while we tend to keep our love of pastries on the down low, we come together once a year to celebrate all things sweet at the Los Angeles Cookie Con and Sweets Show. Returning for its second year on February 6 & 7 2016, the West Coast’s largest…

As Fat Girl Food Squad says goodbye and the new year approaches, my mind has been circling around traditions: making new ones and keeping others alive. While my fellow Latino friends were preparing for their annual Thanksgiving tamalada, a traditional tamale making party, I was left wondering what happened with my family’s traditions? When was the last time I tasted my family’s recipe for tamales? And what traditions does my family hold high? Once my initial panic settled, I realized…

My Epic Adventure at Mickey’s Halloween Party

10 Oct, 2015  |  by Linda Dianne

I’m the kind of person who enjoys a good scar. The giant one on my knee, for example, is a reminder that I’m up and running after breaking it into hundreds of pieces during a basketball game. The faint one above my lip—oh, nothing but a throwback to the time I fell out of a moving vehicle in Central America. Each scratch, freckle, and scar is a story. So when I came home from Mickey’s Halloween Party at Disneyland covered…

Veggielicious 101 with Susur Lee at Bent

9 Sep, 2014  |  by Vanessa Vaillant

  When Susur Lee extended another invitation to the FGFS babes and I was the only person free, I couldn’t believe my luck. I have admired the chef since I first saw him battle on Top Chef Masters  —and was let down when he didn’t win. Last time FGFS was in class with Susur it was for Dim Sum, this time it was for a preview of his Veggielicious prix fixe menu. From watching Top Chef Masters I knew that Chef…

The biggest thing about being a part of Fat Girl Food Squad is how much we genuinely like to hang out together.  It doesn’t happen as often as we would like it to happen but when it does, we always have a great time. So when Yuli, Vanessa, Amarina and I were trying to plan our most recent ‘ladies night out’ – we tried to pick something that was in the middle for all of us transportation wise and something…

In case some of you avid FGFS haven’t noticed – a lot of us here are pretty avid fans of pizza. You might say, it’s one of our favourite things to eat. So when we were approached by to host our pizza party, the resounding answer was: YES! Using Just-Eat is pretty simple: log on, enter your postal code and bam! Food choices galore!

For those of you following FGFS, you may have come to realize that we’re all about community. The FGFS HQ is located in Toronto and lots of times, we love to just kick-back and hang together with our writers in the GTA as a big grrl gang.
