I went through this phase where I baked the most simple, one-bowl-baking, f*ck up proof banana bread recipes, just so there was a sweet floating smell that took over my home before friends came over. It made me very popular ... and fat.
Winter is finally behind us and we're excited to finally say goodbye to hearty comfort foods and lighten up our menus with some fresh Spring Salads. So we're thrilled that National Salad Month takes place in May. Let's give our ovens a rest and celebrate with these sensational recipes.

Warmer weather is almost here and we couldn't be more ecstatic! This means grilling season, weekends at the cottage and poolside tanning. While we're excited for tasty fresh salads, smokey barbecue and ice cream, we can't help but reminisce on all the comfort foods that the colder months had to offer.
Thanksgiving may have come and gone, but we have a lot to be thankful for as Canadians right now. And what better way to embrace our feelings of National pride than by digging in to some delicious dishes that feature some of our country's favourite foods. From our love of bacon and sweet maple syrup, to gooey butter tarts and spicy caesars -- these truly Canadian recipes are a tasty way to celebrate our love for this great country we live in.
Yup! That just happened! Ol, take a deep breath. Since we are so close to Friday, we thought we would give you another reason to look forward this weekend's campfire cookout. This is a side dish that Ron Swanson would approve of. And yes, these bacon-wrapped onion rings are every bit as delicious as they look!

I really detest the saying "everything in moderation" because my moderation is different from yours, and neither of us knows what the outcomes will be of our choices. We don't eat nutrients, we eat foods and for many different reasons.

When you read that processed meat has "Grade 1" status, just like cigarette smoking, arsenic, or asbestos, it just means that the WHO is confident in the relationship between processed meat and cancer - NOT that processed meat is as likely to cause cancer as cigarette smoking is.

If you follow my 80 twenty rule and eat healthy foods such as vegetables, beans and lentils, fruit, nuts and seeds, fish and lean poultry 80% of the time, you can have some of the less healthy options 20% of the time. Whether it's sugar or bacon, no diet is 100% perfect.

They determined red meat is probably cancer-causing, too.
