ALL ABOUT CANADIAN BLUEBERRIES
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. It’s also our number-one exported fresh fruit, but I say let’s eat as much as we can of this incredible native berry. In this week's blog I talk about the two types of blueberries and give you an amazing blueberry recipe for you to try! Click the image to head to my website.
Breakfast on the BBQ
Morning coffee, slippers, a magazine and…barbecued brekkie? Oh yes! The smoky, char-y flavour of grilled food tastes great first thing in the morning. And there’s more than just bacon that can hit the grill at sunrise (although that alone is really, really good). These tips are perfect for breakfast while camping, as well!

Is all ground meat the same?
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. Follow the link to my website where I've written a blog post on this topic, along with recipes you'll love!
WHAT IS COLD BREW COFFEE?
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).

The Perfect Meat Marinade
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.
