Okay, okay, I know it isn’t officially summer quite yet, and it won’t be for a little while.

Kitchen scraps, or food scraps, depending on what you prefer to call them, aren’t exactly the easiest things to make use of.

Here’s how to make the ultimate charcuterie board

I would argue that 2020 was the year of the charcuterie board.

For whatever reason, food just seems to taste better when consumed in the late hours of the evening.

Check out these mushroom types and the benefits they offer

I’m not the biggest fan of mushrooms. I can appreciate them in the sense they’re incredibly versatile and offer a multitude of benefits to those of us who consume them, but I just cannot get past their texture.

Bad habits are easy enough to unconsciously undertake. Small, irregular behaviours, in time, become more prominent and repetitive, unfortunately resulting in, often times, a habit we wish we hadn’t picked up. Poor habits are understandably something all of us have some experience with, and I would wager that more of us dabbled in shitty habits … More Did 2020 prompt you to start a bad habit?

Here’s how to make the best gingerbread this Christmas

I’m going to be a bit of a humbug and admit that I seriously dislike gingerbread in any form. I’ve never liked it and doubt I ever will, and I struggle to comprehend how so many of us can truly enjoy this holiday-oriented treat.
