It is our country’s national drink, after all, and it’s perfect for Canada Day which is just around the corner!  Walk into any bar, order a Caesar, and get ready to be mind blown by this funky fusion of clamato juice, vodka, sauces, and toppings.

Delicious Steak Salad With Yogurt Dressing

Here’s the thing about barbecues: they’re fun and delicious, but can sometimes get pretty unhealthy.

Easy Bruschetta Recipe

One of the reasons why I enjoy summer (besides barbecues and sunshine) is because of all the produce that is in-season. Melon and berries often get the spotlight as summer fruits, but think about all the fresh tomatoes! This fruit (we aren’t going to debate on whether tomatoes are fruits or vegetables!) is perfect for one of my favorite appetizers: bruschetta.  Bruschetta — a traditional Italian antipasto — is essentially a tomato mixture on grilled bread slices and is great as an appetizer, snack, side dish or even on its own. They look fancy, but are so easy to make!  With...
