Chefs and foodies are like the Victor Frankenstein to their insane creations. Remember when a croissant was just a croissant and a donut was just a donut? Yeah, those days are gone. Thank you, cronuts. But that’s not where it stops, oh no. There are new crops of crazy food inventions surfacing daily and we […]
Your Burger Could Be the Next Big Terrorist Target
We love Easter for the fact that the offering of food ranges from fish to turkey and from fruit to chocolate. One of our family’s favo…6 Zoom(s)
In Canada, this is what we call innovation. Boston Pizza is currently carrying out “Pizza Game Changers,” a spring promotion in which it comes up with new product ideas and asks the public to vote on which one it should make.

Since our family switched to eating real food in January, we have started to make many things from scratch. One of the staples my husband loves is homemade mayonnaise. Homemade mayonnaise is quite easy to make and only uses a few ingredients. Since getting a vitamix, we have been making different variations of mayo and […]
Spring is wonderful. Here are some other things that are wonderful: 1. G.H. Cretors Chicago Mix popcorn. I walked past it in the aisles for years, scoffing in disgust that cheese and caramel were two flavors that should ne’er be […]
Somebody at Taco Bell Canada (probably stoned) must have remarked: “Canadians love fries with lots of stuff on top!” That is the only explanation for this only-in-Canada Taco Bell menu item, a bastardization of the least-Mexican Mexican food and an obvious stab at making “poutine,” fake-Mexican style.

In August I announced the resumption of Barrie’s monthly Food Not Bombs dinners, featuring community-prepared vegan meals offered free to all. My activities since then have kept me connected to local food security: helping at Rosie’s Thanksgiving dinner and providing the Barrie Food Bank over a ton of fresh fruit in FruitShare Barrie’s pilot season.
