Canada is exploding in blueberries right now. No, really—there is more land devoted to blueberries than any other fruit across the country, with apples coming in second.

Most of us know ground beef by its regular, medium, lean and extra-lean categories—you can almost tell just by looking at the package. But where do other ground meats fit in, and why don’t we ever see “medium-ground turkey”?   As it turns out, all ground meat (at least in Canada) follows the same labeling standards, regardless of animal origin.

Cold brew coffee is just that: brewed with cold water. But instead of pouring water over coffee grounds, cold water gets steeped with medium- to course-grounds for 12 to 24 hours before straining to make a coffee concentrate. Twice as many grounds are used in cold brew as traditional coffee, which is why you often pay more for this drink at coffee shops. (Iced coffee is not cold brew—it’s traditional brew, cooled down).

A marinade is a liquid, typically made of oil, acid, spices, and herbs, in which meat, fish, or other food is soaked before cooking in order to flavour and or tenderize.  If keeping a lean piece of meat juicy (I’m looking at you boneless, skinless chicken breast), is your goal, consider a brine or a marinade brine hybrid. Head over to my website for this week's blog where I teach you how to make perfect marinade every time.

No matter what life throws at you, strawberry season always seems to make the world feel a little brighter. And not only are strawberries beautiful and taste great, they’re also kind of amazing plants: They’re related to roses, the only fruit with its seeds on the outside, and self-clone themselves via runners that grow above-ground (making a strawberry patch takes just one plant!).
