Instead of focusing on the looming loss of what is most people’s favourite time (it is surely mine), maybe we could ease our distress by making the best use of what we’ve got, while it’s still around.  Too often, the here and now get swallowed up by time spent lamenting what hasRead More
by Stu Rhoes –  This month’s edition of Seaside Magazine has a focus on food. We can all think back and recall a special meal of some significance that has left us with lifelong memories. Sometimes we remember the meal because of the occasion or celebration to which it was connected, like a birthday or anniversary.

by Deborah Rogers –  Food preparation, cooking, eating and clean up is a time-consuming part of my life. It’s probably the same for you. And maybe you also get stuck in a rut cooking the same few dishes over and over again. On automatic pilot in the grocery store, I find I’m working with the same ingredients all the time and don’t know how to break out! I actually love to read cookbooks, but I seldom make the leap to preparing something new from them. It’s often the list ofRead More
