Long Weekend Cocktail Round Up: Caesar
I adore caesars. I think they're my favourite cocktail, of all time. Which is saying something. They're spicy, salty and tangy. The perfect combination. Plus, you can get away with drinking them at brunch = awesome.
Since the long weekend is upon us (who else cannot wait to just sit in a hammock in the sun?), I thought it was only appropriate to present a few different caesar-iffic styles of...
10 Exciting and Healthy Salad Ideas
I won't lie to you. I wouldn't exactly count myself among the fans of salad. I don't hate it, I just don't love it -it's just kind of tasteless to me. Kind of like how I feel about (unpopular opinion here, don't shot me) Maroon 5. Given the option, it isn't on my menu.
So, when I think lunch, salad isn't really first on my mind. It's more like burger, poutine, tacos for me. However, I may...
5 Ways to Flavour Sugar
I'm a self confessed sweet-toothed sugar addict. You got a dessert you don't want anymore? I'll take it off your hands for you, free of charge. Now, I'd never say something so blasphemous as 'sugar can get boring' but I will say that once in a while, you need a flavour kick to jazz it up a bit.

We want to look on the bright side (scratch that, we want to look on the cool, air conditioned side
) of this summer instead. To help keep a cool head, I've been chilling out in the kitchen. For example, I was inspired by our spa water recipes
and have been...
We Love Foodie Fridays: Favourite Food Trends for Summer
So far, this has pretty much been the summer of food. Not that this is special in any way. Most of my summer, scratch that, most of my life revolves around food. However, this summer I've definitely made it my mission to test out as many new foods and restaurants as possible. Chicks, I think I've become a bit of a foodie!

Refreshing Summer Drink: Tea Soda Recipe
The other day, I happened upon a tea shop right around the corner from CA HQ. I stopped and tried a white lavender tea soda. It was sweet, bubbly, refreshing and like a sparkling party in my mouth. What I mean to say is, it was super delish and I wanted more. When I thought about what went into the tea soda, I thought: dude, I could totally do this myself. And guess what, I totally did.
