What Jenn’s Lovin’
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.
What Ellen’s Lovin’
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.
