Alison F Author On My Trending Stories

Hi! I'm Alison from Cooking with Alison, where I've been sharing my favourite recipes since 2010. You may also know me from my column, Mind Yourself with Alison on the Brain Injury Society of Toronto (BIST) Blog. Most recently, I started writing for the new Canadian magazine, 109TM Fashion and Living. On My Trending Stories, I plan to write about all sorts of random topics, including food, relationships, travel, money, lifestyle, pets, make-up, and science, etc. 


Who I Am


  1. I'm a foodie, crazy dog lady, reluctant wife (I'll eventually get around to sharing that story), eldest sister, aunt, traveler, and volunteer. 
  2. I'm an honest, understanding, fun-loving, detail-oriented, and obsessive person that loves to try new things.
  3. I love to shop, but I'm money-conscious, so I'm all about getting the best deals. My favourite stores include: Costco, Sephora, Hudson's Bay, and J. Crew
  4. I'm in my mid thirties and have no plans to have human children, but I would love to be a foster mom to many when I'm older. (Why? I'll eventually get around to sharing that story, too!)
  5. I have a M.Sc., a PMP, and an office job in the pharmaceutical industry, and I still don't know what I want to do with my life.
  6. Oh, and I'm Canadian!
