You may remember The Little Life Box from back when I first reviewed it in December when they launched. It's a monthly subscription box that is meant to take the guesswork out of finding healthy, organic products. You get a sample of a variety of Canadian products, shipped right to your door each month for the low price of $19.99 (plus $3 shipping to any province). 6 months later, and I still love receiving my Little Life Box! One of my favourite parts about opening this particular subscription box, (aside from the awesome contents of course) is the great tissue paper! I'm always really excited to see what colour combinations they used since they change monthly (and let's be honest, save it to recycle into another gift later).

I made this berry cobbler the other day and it ended up boiling over. I laughed when it came out of the oven, thinking there was no way I could possibly use this picture for a blog post, but then when I posted it on Cooking With Jax's Facebook Page to poke fun at my disaster, tons of readers thought it still looked delicious and asked for the recipe. It WAS still delicious, even though it didn't turn out picture perfect this time, I knew that if I had used a larger different dish like the recipe calls for, it would have turned out perfectly. The truth is, things don't always turn out exactly as planned. That's been going on a lot lately in my life, but I'm trying to just go with it instead of letting it stress me out. So, instead of remaking this entire recipe just so I'd get a better picture, I decided to just go with it and try not be such a perfectionist this time around!

A few weeks ago I had the privileged to interview Canadian rock legend Gordie Johnson from Big Sugar. During the interview, Gordie told me that his kids love this sauce and he makes it weekly so when he's out on the road, the kids have a delicious homemade meals that their Dad made ready in the to go for the week. As soon as he shared this recipe with me, I made a trip to my favourite Italian store to stock up on ingredients. This sauce is every bit as delicious as it sounds, and I can't wait to make it again next week with a bit of the secret ingredient ;)! Thanks Gordie for sharing this awesome recipe with us!
A few weeks ago I had the privilege of sitting down with Big Sugar frontman Gordie Johnson to chat food! You can read all about how the interview came to be, as well as a glimpse into my day HERE.
For the interview, Gordie and I found a quite corner just off stage and settled in on a stage trunk (a trunk that holds the band's gear). Sounds of the river flowed on one side, and melodies from the stage drifted down from the other. The area was filled with activity - Gordie's kids were busy running around, having the time of their lives. The rest of the band milled about, some on stage finishing up their soundcheck, some down by the river, enjoying a steaming cup of hot tea.
Gordie was really excited to sit down and chat food, so needless to say we got right down to business. Here's what we had to talk about:
