And I love the Food Network.
Some afternoons there's just nothing better than frying up some frozen perogies, adding a sprinkle of Mrs. Dash, and savoring my gourmet creation while watching the pros school me at the culinary arts.
Curse you Barefoot Contessa...
Well one of my faves is definitely The Main, featuring super-chef (and homegrown Canadian) Anthony Sedlak.
This guy is only a couple years older than me, but he's already won like a bazillion cooking competitions, he's the executive chef at a posh Vancouver restaurant, he has a hit TV show... and he puts my grilled cheese to shame...
He also happens to be a pretty rad guy.
Last week I had the pleasure of chatting with Anthony about the Zantac Chili Challenge; a national competition that invites Canadians to submit their favorite chili recipes for a shot at winning a trip to the Mayan Riviera!
Dayum... I should start taking notes...
Anyway, check out my interview with Anthony right here:
You may wanna grab a snack... we gab for a bit... plus we're talking about chili so you're probably gonna get a little hungry.
Meet The Oasis of the Seas , the latest flagship of the Royal Caribbean fleet.
Oh, and yes, those are rock walls next to the amphitheater... in case you wanted to take in a show whilst scaling a mountain at sea... phhht, no real mountain is gonna offer up that kinda luxury.
The Oasis of the Seas is currently en route across the Atlantic in preparation for her maiden voyage in the Caribbean later this month. Follow her on her journey and keep up to date with the captain's video log too!
Busy man... hope he's watching for those icebergs... just because this beast is 20 storeys high and 5 times bigger than the Titanic doesn't mean we should get sloppy folks!Just to give you an idea of how enormous this beyotch is... that ship in the chart above is actually a smaller class of passenger vessel...
Alright. Sold. Who wants to go cruisin'?
