Elimate the Need for Plastic Wrap with Abeego Natural Food Wraps

Abeego Food Wrap

I have been on the hunt for a product that would reduce or better yet, eliminate my need for plastic wrap. Last year, while at the One of a Kind Show in Toronto, my Mom and I discovered Abeego. Abeego makes natural food wraps created from pure beeswax, jojoba oil, and tree resin infused into a fabric made of hemp and certified organic cotton. It allows food to breathe which slows down the rate of decomposition. Have you ever had a block of cheese that has gone slimy after opening because there is too much moisture? I have been trying … Continue reading

Search No More for a Stretchy and Flavourful Mozzarella Cheese!

Do you have a favourite cheese? In our house, our favourite is stretchy and flavourful mozzarella called Mozzarellissima. It is our “go to cheese”! Each of us has our own preferences for how we like to enjoy it best! My son enjoys Mozzarellissima melted on a plate as an after school snack. Yes, you read that right – just melted cheese on its own. It is THAT good! Lately, I have been trying to re-introduce him to melted cheese on crackers… My daughter enjoys a small chunk of cheese to nibble on. I love Mozzarellissima in many of my dinner … Continue reading

The Vegan Cook's Bible

from Robert Rose Inc. As I mentioned in an earlier cookbook review post, in 2014 I have been making a concerted effort to eat more of a plant-based diet.

The Vegan Cook’s Bible is so much more than a cookbook! … Continue reading

Cream of Mushroom Soup #CarnationSoups

Cream of Mushroom Soup

What’s better to prepare on a cool Fall day than some warm, creamy and delicious soup?! This time, I selected some Cream of Mushroom soup and here is how it all began… The recipe that I used calls for Carnation® Evaporated Milk. Did you know that Carnation Evaporated Milk is just milk with about half of the water removed? Less water makes the milk richer and creamier in taste and is a perfect (and easy) addition when cooking for the family. In fact, because you can add water (1:1) to Carnation Evaporated Milk to make it like regular milk, it … Continue reading
