This Corn is Amaizing! Amaize Sweet Corn Product Review

 
Recently I was asked if I would review Amaize Sweet Corn, a rare breed of corn now available in Loblaws stores in Toronto and exclusive stores in several cities across the U.S.  It is grown in Idaho and is entirely non-GMO.

Corn on the cob is popular in our house, the girls and Adam are always happy to see it on the dinner table.  Corn on the cob, brings back fond summer memories for me of backyard barbeques and visiting my grandparents at their summer home in the Berkshire mountains.

We decided to try it out one night recently when Adam was out at a concert.  Originally, I gave the girls each an ear and put the other two on my own plate.  The girls dug in first and finished theirs before I had started mine.  They then both began to object to the fact that I had two.  Being the great mom that I am, I cut one of mine in half and gave them each another half, which they quickly devoured before I had finished mine.

The girls were disappointed that we were only sent 4 ears!  Amaize is definitely a fine tasting corn.  It is crisp, and super sweet.   Admittedly, I could have eaten a few more ears myself.

So if you live in the Toronto area, get to Loblaws and get yourself some of this Amaize-ing corn!

Disclosure: I was provided with 4 ears of corn by the company, but all the opinions on this blog are my own (and those of my peeps).

Blackfly Coolers: Product Review

Summer is over! Well, at least if you're a student. Officially it doesn't end for a few weeks, and it certainly still feels like summer. Yeah, I hate it. This f*cking hot, humid weather needs to end NOW! We made the most of our last weekend of the summer with our annual trip to the CNE on Friday, with a crowd of friends. It wasn't unbearably lot, thank goodness, and the girls and their friends had a blast on the rides.  Saturday I had to work, and Sunday was errand day. Monday we took the girls berry/apple/pear picking but didn't last long due to the heat. I organized the house to prepare for the construction workers starting back up yesterday, while Adam took the girls for a swim in our neighbourhood pool.

Yesterday was the first day of school. Grade 2 and Grade 5. Yep, the girls are growing up.  We are fortunate that the girls don't have much anxiety about school, they are so much more confident than I ever was as a kid! But now, in the midst of our reno chaos, …

Live Clean

I have been committed to living a healthy life through nutrition and fitness for over 20 years now.

It took me a lot longer to pay attention to what I was cleaning the house with and what I was putting ON my body as opposed to IN it.

When I got pregnant with Big A I started reading about the toxins in a lot of commercial cleaning products and switched to the all-natural, eco-friendly stuff. When I became pregnant with Little A, I switched to all-natural, eco-friendly personal care products.

I am all for being environmentally friendly for the good of the planet, but to be honest, what really motivates me to make these types of changes is concern for my family's health.

You may remember I mentioned giving up my favorite perfume a while back because it apparently is full of nasty chemicals. I switched to the "Red Tea" scent made my Roots, which is supposed to be somewhat "natural". This was only after a number of trial and errors. I first found a woman in …

Panang Curry

When we go out for Thai food, one of my favorite things to order is the panang curry. But there is no doubt when this dish is made in a restaurant, it packs a hefty wallop of fat, sodium and calories.

My version is lightened up, but still rich and flavourful and it is super simple to make.

Traditionally, panang curry is made with either beef or chicken, but I made it vegetarian, using dried seiten (wheat gluten) I got at T&T a few weeks ago. If you are not sensitive to gluten, this is a great source of vegetarian protein. If you cannot find it dried, you can get it prepared at most health food stores. Alternatively, you can use tofu, or the more traditional chicken or beef options.

This dish also doesn't usually have much vegetable matter in it, but I love how yummy veggies taste when simmered in this sauce, and it makes this a healthy one-pot meal. Use whatever veggies you prefer or have on hand.

Protein of choice (2 cups seiten or 1 lb organic tofu, boneless skinless ch…
