We're throwing ourselves into another season of corruption and suspense with a party even the Underwoods would approve of: one with class and panache. Wine, cheese and lip-smacking appetizers that are easy to prepare in advance.
Winner winner, chicken dinner! It's the easiest thing to serve up on a busy weeknight. And it's the one dish you know will please everyone at the table -- even your picky eater. But by now you're probably tired of the same 2 or 3 recipes you make, week after week. We're here to change that.

A small Mississauga-based agri-tech company called Bee Vector Technologies (BVT) has created an environmentally friendly alternative to spraying crops with toxic pesticides.

And you probably already have these two items in your kitchen.
From teas to a spread to straight out of the comb, honey is said to be one of the world's oldest sweeteners, and even today, the health benefits are still pretty sweet. While we can buy honey all year...
It's been a rather tough year for artificial sweeteners. In that time, three new studies have been released suggesting they are poor substitutes for sugar. In the spring, an investigation into their use revealed a disconcerting association with the onset of depression. Then, a long-term analysis of their use revealed they may contribute to overall weight gain.
