Hamburgers, in my opinion, are the absolute shit. To clarify, when I refer to something as ‘the shit’, it means I have a grand appreciation for it, and further that I respect the hell out of it. Just in case anyone was wondering why I was referencing hamburger and shit in the same breath. Hamburgers … More Looking for a homemade hamburger recipe? Look no further
While it isn’t quite watermelon season yet here in Ontario, the time is approaching, and I and a lot of other Ontarians are arguably excited. Watermelon is the shit; it’s super refreshing on a hot day, and because it contains so much water, it is a very filling snack, which I can appreciate. The one … More Here’s how to make a mean watermelon salad
I consider myself to be someone who views both traditional medicine and naturopathic medicine to be of equal importance. I think it is important to acknowledge, however, that there are some things I believe should be tackled with traditional medicine, and others with naturopathic medicine. Certain ailments require certain treatment, and one route is better … More Should you be using elderberry?
I love food, as do most of us. My love for food arguably stems from the food my mom made for me growing up, as well as my background; I’m Hungarian and Dutch, and while the Dutch may not necessarily be known for their food, the Hungarians sure are. I follow a few food accounts … More Read this to learn how to change your potato wedge game
I will throw hands right here and now with anyone who can tell me with sincere honesty that eating raw cookie dough isn’t absolutely the best part of making homemade cookies.

My post a few days ago regarding how to make some wicked homemade French fries inspired me to dedicate some more posts not only to recipes, but further, recipes for quintessential foods I feel like we often take for granted. French fries are arguably one of the most popular foods on the planet, but they … More Here is how to make some killer onion rings
French fries are a lot like chips in the sense that you simply cannot only have one as it would defy the laws of the universe.

Considering French fries are the go-to side dish for … More Read this to learn how to make the best homemade French Fries
I wouldn’t exactly say my love for Costco comes as a surprise after I mentioned it in my post a little while ago about Tiramisu. It may be more accurate to admit I have a somewhat toxic relationship with Costco, but honestly, I’m okay with it because of all of the happiness it brings me. … More Love pickles? Read this
For Christmas last year, my mom generously gifted me and Blaine an executive Costco membership to use once we are living in our home.

Blaine and I are (hopefully) going to be moving … More Run, don’t walk to get this dessert from Costco
I firmly believe that brownies are just one of those things that provide an instant mood boost. Brownies are the shit; they’re slightly crunchy on the outside and on the edges, yet soft and gooey on the inside, enveloping your mouth in a chocolatey euphoria. At least, that’s how I enjoy my brownies. In case … More Read this to learn how to make the best homemade brownies
Anyone who considers themselves to be a foodie is arguably familiar with The Mandarin. In case you’re unaware of what The Mandarin is, simply put, it is a majestic, incredibly diverse food buffet that everyone residing on planet Earth should have the privilege of experiencing. At least, I think so. And I’m not even a … More A round of applause for The Mandarin
Tiramisu, if you have not yet had the privilege of tasting it, is life-changing. That may sound dramatic, but I assure you it isn’t.

I’ve always had a healthy appetite for water. Or perhaps I should say a solid thirst for it. Either way, I’ve never been shy when it comes to guzzling some good ‘ol H2O, and I do believe this stems from me doing a lot of outdoor, physical work on my family’s farm. When it’s above … More Here’s how to drink more water
Bread is just one of those things that, I believe, the majority of us can agree is as addictive as crack cocaine. I can’t say I’ve ever dabbled in crack cocaine, and I certainly don’t plan to, but from what I’ve heard about it, it’s rather addicting, hence why I’m comparing it to bread. I … More Here’s how to make the best homemade bread
I’m willing to bet that the majority of us are familiar with dandelions, mainly as a result of recess during our childhoods. At least, my childhood recesses consisted of attacking one another with the flower and smearing yellow up and down our arms as if an infant took a massive shit upon us. Perhaps I … More Should you be eating dandelions?
This past Saturday, Blaine and I were trying to determine a place to visit to grab some dinner. We didn’t really want to drive into Brantford, nor did we want to hit up a spot we go to regularly.

Health is a topic that, I would say, has direct relevance to all of us.

For … More Start doing these things to feel healthier
I friggen love Montana’s. I guess I didn’t really realize how much I appreciated this restaurant until I started going there with Blaine and my family, and because prior to now I had only eaten at Montana’s a handful of times when I was a child. Allow me to inform anyone who may doubt the … More Let’s hear it for Montanas BBQ & Bar
When I was younger, Hamburger Helper was the shit. I can recall the majority of my friends ingesting it on a semi-regular basis, and I was always envious of their privilege to eat this stuff because my mom determined it to be too unhealthy for us to eat and enjoy. I mean, in retrospect, my … More Here’s how to make the best homemade Hamburger Helper
This past weekend, my mom, dad, myself and Blaine ventured into Brantford to go out for dinner.

Pizza pockets are like the GOAT of the food world.

They’re delicious, regardless of how many hazardous materials they contain, and I think they may contain cocaine or some … More Here’s how to make homemade pizza pockets
I absolutely love Mexican food. My entire family does, actually, so when we have the opportunity to grab some, you can bet your sombrero we do.
