Friends are like Onions

Today Anna turns 22.

Anna likes onions. A lot.

I have spent my entire four years of university living with this girl. Memories include first year residence life, homecoming adventures, meeting Chef Michael Smith (twice!), Spice Girls in concert, roadtripping, lake jumping, house parties, dinner parties, laptop parties... and over the years developing our obsession and love for food together.

Basically, I spend a ridiculous amount of time with her. Enough time that I think she deserves a birthday post. A post all about something she holds dear to her heart, one of her favourite foods. I don't know anyone who could love an onion more than Anna can.

So on her 22nd birthday I am posting a collection of 22 deliciously unique onion recipes.

Happy Birthday Anna


  1. JEN!!!!!
    My heart melted when I saw this post!
    And you know me so well, I really DO love onions, definitely will be trying that first stuffed version SOON. (You can be my taster :) )
    As for the others, I will make my way through the list throughout the day- must pace myself in the world of onions!
    But again, thanks for the post/bday wishes/onion love. (Maybe woodenheads will have some tasty onion version of things?)
    I LOVE YOU !!!!!!!!!!!

  2. I'm glad you're enjoying the post!! I can't wait to be your taster, oh so many things to try with that new bag of onions ;)

  3. This is AWESOME! But I think the best onion of them all is the one hanging up in anna's room :)

  4. Not everyone has a best friend with an onion fixation :-). The recipes are fantastic. This is my first visit to your blog so I've spent some time browsing through your earlier entries. I really like the food and recipes you feature here and I'll definitely be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary
