Recipe of the Week

Did you know that Calgary, Alberta has had one of its hottest summers ever recorded this year? If you’ve spent any time in the city, the surrounding parks or British Columbia, you will have noticed the brown grass, dusty roads and smoke in the air from the abundance of forest fires. Whereas it has been great to have the warm weather this summer, it has definitely created challenges in other many areas of daily life.
