I enjoy watching The Great Food Truck Race because it is a fun show involving an exciting competition, road trip adventure, and food. I am excited about the upcoming six-episode sixth season that starts on Sunday, August 23rd at 9pm ET/PT. There will be a brand-new fleet of fierce competitors that will cook and travel across America’s most famous stretch of road, historic Route 66.

During summer everyone in my family prefers cold breakfasts. Most of the time we try to have a quick, healthy breakfast so we can get a head start to enjoy the outdoors. We enjoyed the Vector Granola Honey Almond Flavour and had it along with berries and yogurt, and in some occasions we had it with milk. This new product is designed to help meet the nutritional needs of active, health conscious people. Half a cup of Vector Granola made with oats, honey, and almonds has 5g of fibre and 10 vitamins and minerals. It comes in a resealable pouch, so storing the granola is easy and is perfect to take on camping trips.

I can never find a cereal that has all the ingredients I want in one package that suits my preference and taste. Usually, I mix different types of cereals together and add in ingredients to make it my own, which is not ideal when mornings get busy. When I first heard of Mixit, I thought it is a fabulous idea because you get to make your cereal just the way you want it online! and not in the kitchen :)

Have a blessed Ramadan everyone.
I love making my favourite, delicious pineapple upside down cake on this Deep Cast Iron Pan from Mr. Bar-B-Q. It has deep sides, which is useful for pan roasting, braising, grilled cheese, cobblers and much more. We can use it on grills, stovetops, and in ovens or take it for camping. I love that it is pre-seasoned and ready to use. The heat distributes evenly to the cooking surface. This pan has to be washed by hand without using harsh detergents and dried thoroughly right away to prevent rusting. We should apply a thin coat of oil before storing in a dry place.

I browsed through the Ricardo Cuisine BBQ recipes and was immediately attracted to many of the dishes that were made using a BBQ and grill. I wanted to make a dessert on the barbecue, and chose to try the Grilled Pineapple with Coconut Milk recipe. It turned out fabulous and was enjoyed by everyone at home. Check the original recipe for variations. I look forward to make this delicious dessert often, as it can be made in less than 15 minutes from preparing to serving.
