Brown Bagging it… WO-style

There’s a new lunch bag in White Oaks Town… and they are flying off the shelves. It’s a miracle these pics aren’t filled with the hungry hands that quickly snapped up these newly designed fun and fresh lunch vessels. But… it’s a private party people! Only on-site conference delegates are on the inside track to receiving this hefty bag of [...]

Niagara Winery Bike Tour

I’ve lived in Niagara my whole life – well most of my life, minus 6 years spent in Toronto – and I have just this year gone on my first wine tour. Can you believe it? I can’t. Why did I wait so long?! Although, I use the term “wine tour” loosely here, it was more of a “wine adventure.” [...]

Summer Wine

It’s summer time and the drinking is easy (and responsible … of course). Wine cocktails are a light and refreshing alternative to their liquor based cousins, and can often be whipped up in batches, for maximum chilling, chatting and enjoying.

Doesn’t matter what time of day, hot or cold, if there is pizza anywhere in the vicinity, I will eat it.

Soup and a Sandwich

Some, like shovelling hills of snow from the driveway are not quite cherished, while others like the age-old body warming combination of a tasty soup and sandwich, deliver more soothing memories. There is nothing quite like a hearty comfort meal on a cold day, to toast you up both inside [...]

The Chef’s Garden

For many restaurants, fresh ingredients are something much talked about, but end up being more mythological than real when the food is finally served. Quite the opposite at LIV Restaurant, where Executive Chef Michael Price has held firm on his philosophy that fresh local ingredients are a key component to any gourmet meal.

Patio Mojo

Can you feel it? The need to get outside and take in all the rays, breezes, buzzing and chirping possible? Outdoor living is hotter that ever. I think, mainly because of all of the cool furniture and décor you can buy, but also because of global warming (so do cut down on those disposable plates). I resisted the outdoor mega-trend [...]

Don’t Fear the Tofu

People are often afraid of what they don’t understand. Even if that something happens to be an unassuming jello-like substance consumed by millions of people all over the world. Tofu is clearly the Rodney Dangerfield of the food world…but what exactly is it, and why doesn’t it get any respect? Much of the confusion lies in the fact that tofu [...]
