The truth of vanilla
Poor dull Vanilla gets an awful rap. Its name has been railroaded into meaning boring or conventional or unexciting. Think vanilla. Think blah. Think bland. Think basic. That provenance was derived from a perverse misstep of vanilla ice-cream being labelled as plain ice-cream. But plain means popular — for a third of us — vanilla is our favourite ice-cream flavour with sexy, cool, hot-shot chocolate languishing a distant second.
Canola Oil vs. Vegetable Oil
The processing of vegetable oils began thousands of years ago, with the help of all the food supplies they had on hand to produce cooking oils. It all began when people learned to use fire and a makeshift oven to heat, oily plant products until the plant exuded oil that could then be extracted.

The Fight for 15
I’ve been within the fast-food industry since I was sixteen years old (nearly eighteen years now), and I’ve seen the worst and the best of it. When I started, as a school kid just looking for some extra cash, minimum wage was just that here in New York. Minimum money for minimum work.

Sure, you would get that one customer who would come in and scream in your face, and the managers would look away, but it was rare (at least in my experience—guess I might have just been lucky).
