What Jenn’s Lovin’

RICARDO Magazine

If you know me, you know I’m not a paper person. I prefer to consume my content on digital devices. From online print media, to ebooks, to podcasts, to video learning, to recipes and my new favourite; audio books. Paper is just not my jam. There are four exceptions: I love to read paper books at the beach (I love how the pages get worn, puff up and I spill things on them), I love my Chatbooks, I love a few select well worn cookbooks and lastly I love when my RICARDO print magazine arrives in the mail. The magazine is Canadian, visually beautiful, it has personality and it’s filled with exciting to me content. Oh and if you ever get to meet Ricardo in person, well, ‘nuf said…trust me, you’ll love the magazine even more!

April Fool’s Day!

I am a little bit of a trickster and love playing practical jokes, tricks, and pranks on this special day.  Food tricks are my favourite! I don’t mean anything mean or wasteful like switching salt for sugar, – but rather fun ‘substitutions’ like roasted carrots for hotdogs, a carved watermelon as a cake filling, or apple slices topped with nut butter for donuts. For endless ideas be sure to check out the internet.  Have fun on this special day and let me know what you have come up with!

Why not try simple and healthy (and delicious) like Roasted Spaghetti Squash.

Chef Ned Bell

Ned Bell and his cookbook Lure is what I’m lovin’ this month as we celebrate Earth month.  Earth Month has me thinking — what are we doing as a community to be sustainable?  For some, sustainability is a buzz word but, for farmers who grow ingredients, it’s a way of life.  I had the chance to learn about farmed fish from Chef Ned Bell. He shared, “when it comes to seafood, sustainable species are abundant, resilient and harvested in a way that does not damage the marine ecosystem.”

Ned encourages people to dive deeper past the headlines and ask why, how and who.  It’s great advice to learn about so many things.

  1. it means to maintain a certain level, like with green spaces and wetlands to make sure they survive and are looked after

  2. It means living within the resources of the planet without damaging the environment now or in the future, creating an economic system that provides for quality of life while renewing the environment and its resources.

  3. It means that the resource is renewable and the planet is not being damaged or destroyed by using the item in question. As well. No chemicals are used to harm the environment

  4. The title of the book “Lure” made me think of the old “Andy Griffith Show” Andy Taylor & his son Opie (a young Ron Howard) with their fishing poles heading to the fishing hole.

  5. Oops. I didn’t realize we had to answer a question. Sustainability means raising food sources that can be renewed. Not over fishing everything in sight & young Fish don’t grow old enough to spawn & species go extinct.

  6. To think ahead and use & reuse but recycle as much as possible. I hate waste so donate goods I no longer want & buy other donated goods so the money gets used for good & helping purpose.

  7. Sustainability means growing/producing enough to replace what you use so that you don’t deplete the world more than you invest in it so that it is living and productive for the future, too.

  12. To me, sustainability means living so that what we consume does not vastly exceed what we contribute. It is to take care of our planet so that our planet can continue to take care of us. In a sustainable world, there is a harmonious and healthy equilibrium between the Earth and all of its inhabitants.

  13. It means working as diligently as you can to better the resources of the earth that we are leaving behind for our children.
