When I cook, I usually turn to pasta. It's not just because it's easy to prepare, but the recipe tend to have simple ingredients and never fail to impress the person eating it (I'm also not the best cook out there). My friends and I decided to cook Italian one night and decided to use one of my Classico sauces that I had - Classico di Parma Four Cheese to make a lobster-stuffed cannelloni.

Most holiday people strive to host the perfect dinner, from the perfect appetizers to the perfect turkey and dessert. Sure, those are all important aspects of hosting but what about the moment your guests walk in the door? This year, we're focusing on all the same things while using President's Choice Insiders Collection.
If you ever wished for a snack that combines poutine and chicken tenders, we've got the answer for you: St Hubert Poutine Bites! The quick and easy product is great for having people over as you can just pop them in the oven for 8 minutes and voila, they're ready!

How much do you know about what goes into making a car? I for one, didn't know at all what kind of materials or ingredients are used in creating a vehicle of any sort except for the typical plastic, petroleum, etc. When I was invited to a dinner to learn about Ford Canada's use of food by-products in their cars, I really had no idea what to expect. Food in cars? What?! After a wonderful dinner at Actinolite, I definitely left with my mind blown - the cars are really becoming greener and more environmentally friendly from the inside, and out.

Who doesn't like Greek food? I'm a huge fan, especially of Tzatziki - I slather it on the meats, the potatoes, you name it. This past weekend, being in a "cooking-mood," I decided to make a Baked Chicken & Eggplant with roasted veggies to enjoy it with the newest flavour in the Hidden Valley dressing family, the Greek Tzatziki.

One of Toronto's ritzy neighbourhoods, Yorkville wouldn't be the same without its popular luxury chocolat boutique, MoRoCo Chocolat. Tucked away on Yorkville Ave., this whimsical spot not only offers amazing chocolate, but also has brunch, afternoon tea, dinner, and did I mention cocktails?
I've been to MoRoCo on several occasions this year, whether to pick up some macarons or meet up with a friend for brunch, since my last post on MoRoCo. This post in particular features their new cocktail and dinner menu items for the season that I was invited to preview two weeks ago.
