Good weather is here. This means local grocery stores and fresh markets will soon be flooded with fresh local produce. With the heat and humidity in mind, our appetites are usually inclined to light, quick and refreshing options. One of my favourite side dish that I often make is a fresh fruity salsa with the produce that our great country offers during the summer. Yes, for all you international readers, Canada does have hot summers!
It has caused quite the stir every time I’ve worn it. I’ve had friends ask if hubby is trying to right a major wrong and strangers tell me how much they love my wedding ring.
Welcome to our third installment of Being Canadian. We are proud to share our recent interview with Canadian celebrity, host of Cityline, Canada’s longest running lifestyle show, Tracy Moore. This Toronto born and raised mom of two shares her views on what Being Canadian means to her:
Today is Earth Day. While it’s not a Hallmark holiday, or a statutory one, it is important for our planet.
While everyone is talking about different ways to give back to the planet; I’d like to focus on a brand that really has been doing that, in remarkable ways.
Okay ladies (sorry guys, this one’s not for you!). This is the night all you foodies have been waiting for. It is here. In Montreal. Dishcrawl Montreal: Mom’s Night Out on May 22nd. Those last three words are enough to make any mom excited; but if you’re a foodie mama like myself, it’s the perfect night out. Imagine yourself with your foodie girls, the same ones that must take pictures of every meal when they go out. The ones who need to try that awesome new restaurant in town; try out that great new recipe then Instagram the heck out of it.
Many of you checked out and shared our first instalment of the Being Canadian series featuring Canadian celebrity; actor, writer and director Zaib Shaikh. This week we bring you an entirely different perspective on being Canadian; that of a former American.
Jennell Dukovac, wife and mother of four, shares her thoughts on what it means to be Canadian.

How many times have I heard women say to me “I love shoes but I hate shopping for them” or I bought them and they are not comfortable. Be it high heel or even flats, there is no reassurance that they will be foot-friendly.
