In My Own Words:
I've written what feels like a thousand reviews over the years - back when Amazon really was just about books - but I'm still practicing every time I write one.

I mostly review books and music with the odd sidebar here and there, because those are the two industries I'm really interested in. I'm trying to read 50 books a year so that'll help boost my numbers!

I live in Canada and am a relativel… Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fresh Perspective, Oct. 19 2011
Fresh - a locally-owned chain of vegetarian / vegan restaurants in Toronto - made eating plants cool before it became cool. With their bistro feel, ever-evolving menu, and delicious picks for omnivores and veggie-eaters alike, Fresh has a well-earned reputation as a top-notch restaurant for the lucky Torontonians that can actually frequent the place.

For those outside of the 416, Fresh has three cookbooks you can use to recreate some of their classic dishes (like quinoa onion rings and tangled Thai salad), as well as a bunch of exclusive recipes created by their head chef and inspired by what the brand stands for. In their latest offering, Fresh, they also include some vegetarian… Read more
Make the Bread, Buy the Butter: What You Should an&hellip by Jennifer Reese

It's really tempting to think of Jennifer Reese's 'Make the Bread, Buy the Butter' as a cookbook - but quite honestly, it's so much more than that.

Confronted with financial woes and general frustration towards corporate America, she decided to start experimenting with homemade foods. Eventually (or perhaps immediately, as a means to a financial end) she compiled these experiences and successful recipes into a book.

There are roughly a dozen sections in the book that cover everything… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Game Changer, Dec 19 2009
After working out with a variety of Biggest Loser DVDs for several months, I finally picked up one of Jillian Michael's solo projects, the 30 Day Shred. This DVD includes 3 levels of difficulty, meant to be worked up to over 30 days (presumably spending 10 days in a row on each level). Once you've hit the 30 days, or whatever schedule you work out for yourself, I recommend rotating all 3 levels for a nice variety.

To summarize, this DVD is fantastic. Jillian employs a unique 3-2-1 circuit training system - three minutes of strength training (divided into two 30 second / 1:30 intervals), two minutes of cardio (divided into two 30 second repeating intervals), and one minute of abs,… Read more
