Every year a number of restaurants from across Canada and the United States compete against each other on the shores of Lake Ontario at Spencer Smith Park in Burlington, […]

Start your own micro-brewery for only $5,000!

I’ve had my eye on the Sabco Brew-Magic System for a while now. I’ve always dreamt of having my own micro–brewery and with the Brew-Magic system it is a possibility.

It was moist and juicy and the skin tasted amazing. […]

Picking the Perfect Steak

What is the “perfect steak”? How do you know which steak is better then others? Earlier, I talked about cooking a juicy steak to perfection, but what I didn’t talk about is steak selection.

Cedar Plank Salmon

I said I would post a vegetarian recipe, I don’t know if this counts, but this is as close as I can get to vegetarian. I love smoking food. I’ve only used a cedar plank in the past, but once I have my cottage built I’m going to pick up a smoker… I can’t wait. […]
