Data Mining: How Companies Know Your Personal Information – TIME

Um… I’ve worked for a rather gigantic mining company where I learned a lot… toooo much 🙁 I learned, for example,  that the follow is policy-defined and not inherent, meaning that the data must be strictly protected, and not only

Sticks | Aksam – sticks, crisps, nuts

Found these at Ella’s Deli on Queen Mary – simple, crispy, and savory – fantastic light snack – particularly the “Cheese and Onion” Sticks | Aksam – sticks, crisps, nuts.

I wish Uber did sandwiches – or Uni – or maybe epipens 😉 Uber – Toronto.

Shrimp, Avocado, and Dumpling Soup

dumpling soup

Made a beautiful roast chicken on the weekend and then a fantastic stock. Once completed, I separated 2 cups, brought to boil, and added a dash of soy sauce and some Hawaiian salt. Finally, added dumplings and shrimp and cooked

Why salt, sugar and fat are the pillars of the processed food industry | The Current with Anna Maria Tremonti | CBC Radio

Frankly, I stay away from packaged food, but with such an insidious problem being presented, it can be hard to escape: Why salt, sugar and fat are the pillars of the processed food industry | The Current with Anna Maria

  • Openings and closings, October, November, December 2017 October 21, 2017
    I don't know what is the other, but one of them is Nouilles Badao and it's Chinese. And it's getting mostly bad reviews so far...
  • Nacarat review October 20, 2017
    "Le Mal Nécessaire" didn't always have consistent cocktails. Lets just say that some bartenders relied on free pour and didn't exactly have the eye for it. That never happened when Val Chagnon was behind the bar. Val was a bit of a good luck charm. I used to warn my guests that, while it was […]
  • Matiz sardines in Mtl? October 19, 2017
    I'm in Toronto, which has the TTC. Etobicoke and Mississauga have their own. Google Maps can give you directions via transit. It seems they have some buses that go there, but I looked from downtown Toronto.
  • Frozen Almond Croissants October 19, 2017
    I would try three places: Costco Cool & Simple Aubut
  • Looking for Authentic "Montreal" food October 19, 2017
    This question is a bit hard to answer because there are a lot of different "sides" to Montreal. All of them can be considered "authentic" in their own way. The good news is that you are among friends here. I know an "authentic" experience is the first thing I look for when I look for […]
  • Where to find SweeTango Apples in Montreal? October 19, 2017
    I know, right? I almost wonder if i had a bad bunch of honeycrisps... I got the SweeTangos at Bridge Street last week and i am pretty sure I also saw them at the west island one the week before. Still none at Provigo or PA, unfortunately.
  • Argentinian pink shrimp at good price October 15, 2017
    Blork, I found the Marina del Rey shrimp at only $5,99 and bought them at the Provigo le marché (formerly Loblaws) at the corner of Parc and Jean-Talon. Perhaps only 300g, but enough for two people. Provigo is expensive but good for loss-leaders. This week Rio Mare tuna in olive oild 3 little tins for […]
  • Best pizzerias in the South Shore October 15, 2017
    The best pizzas on the South Shore are the ones I make at home. :-) But seriously (wait, I WAS serious!) there aren't a lot that I know of. Plenty of mom & pop joints, but I don't know of many note-worthy ones. Back in 2006 I mentioned Lou Nissart, and I still stand by […]
  • Silky Smooth Macaroni and Cheese - need Sodium Citrate. October 15, 2017
    I think it made enough sauce for a 7 ounce pack of elbow macaroni? It was quite a big casserole. It has been a while since I've made this recipe! I scored sodium citrate since then and I'm not a big fan of the modernist mac & cheese. There is this waxy quality that you […]
  • Whole Smoked Turkey October 13, 2017
    Heu, Trekdiva! I don't know if they can smoke your turkey but I believe Quebec Smoked Meat sells smoked turkey... Never hurts to ask! (they are an old fashioned butcher who do their own smoking in house) http://www.viandefumeequebec.ca/en
