Did you know? It’s National Coffee Day today  – and while I’m a self-professed tea lover, I know that many (most?) of you, swear by your cup o’ joe. And it seems you’re not alone. Canadians LOVE their coffee (they drank more than 1.6 billion cups* of brewed coffee last year!) and Starbucks highlights this in an infographic they put out just for this special occasion!

win a scotch-brite prize pack

I don’t know why but I have a hard time keeping my kitchen sink sparkling. Every time my mother visits, I can see her eying it warily, then casually tossing a cleaning tip my way. Part of the problem is time and the other part of the problem is tea bags, which always stain.

contest: win a nespresso limited edition colombian terroirs prize pack

Spring 2014 is certainly bringing us showers (in Toronto, ON, at least), but did you know it also brings a delightful caffeinated surprise?

This season, Nespresso released two limited edition Colombian coffees. Featuring two very different blends from two opposite regions, the Colombian Terriors offers consumers a taste of the country’s Arabica variety. Cauca, from the southwest region, is described as fruity with winey aromas, complex and aromatic. While the Santander, from the northeast region, is more rounded and balanced, with notes of toasted bread and sweet caramel.

To accompany this launch, Swiss graphic designer Werner Jeker illustrated two limited edition espresso cups to represent the two terroirs. The cups even come in a gift box that transforms into a capsule dispenser for the Nespresso U machine. I love a multi-functional twist!

And, to make things even better, we’re giving it all away to one lucky winner! Read on to find out how you can win.

cookbook giveaway: recipes from my home kitchen by christine ha

Yesterday I had the delicious pleasure of enjoying breakfast with Masterchef USA winner Christine Ha. Watching her on season three of Masterchef USA was addicting (much like her kale and mushroom chips and candied bacon), but I constantly wished I could taste her winning dishes. While the breakfast recipes we did get to try were simple in nature, the flavours sang.

Not only is Christine Ha, otherwise known as The Blind Cook, an inspiration when it comes to passion and hard work, but she invokes confidence in anyone who wants to cook. Her culinary adventures didn’t start from a young age like most mastered chefs. Instead, she began cooking in university out of pure necessity and admits every dish was not a success. Her skills and palette developed as, sadly, her sight diminished, eventually losing her vision entirely due to an autoimmune disease.

In her cookbook, Recipes from My Home Kitchen: Asian and American Comfort Food, Christine states, “Food, like love, is a basic human need” and that she really started to love cooking for friends and roommates, delighting in giving them a “food coma”. I believe it is her love for food and creating food out of love that makes her recipes special. After experiencing this firsthand I only wish to share this with others… And that is exactly what I’m going to do!

I’m giving away a copy of Christine’s cookbook to one lucky reader! Read on to find out how to enter.
