Curried Turkey SaladThis is a refreshing, English / Indian-inspired twist on leftover turkey — a nice change of pace after a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Dried cranberries take the place of more traditional grapes and lend a little contrasting sweetness, and cilantro and lime play out the tropical theme. Using more yogurt than mayonnaise keeps the salad light.  (Substitute lowfat Greek yogurt for regular lowfat yogurt to avoid the draining step.)
Serves 2 to 4

Jalapeno PoppersThe crunch of the pepper with the creamy filling and the smoky bacon over top makes this the ultimate boating recipe.

Tight FitA new shrink-wrap promises more environmentally conscious

In Nov 2019, I was fortunate enough to attend the Boating Ontario conference in Niagara Falls ON. This conference is geared to members and suppliers of the marine industry particularly marina operations. One of the suppliers was Layfield Geosynthetics, offering a new shrink-wrap film called ‘Bioflex MarineShrink’. The Layfield rep that I spoke with described the new product as a more environmentally conscious option (more on what this means, below).

Pursuit DC 235A Great Boat for Canada and Mom Approved Too!

By Jill Snider and Andy Adams

Coming from two different directions, Jill Snider and I met up at Crates Lake Country Boats in Orillia, Ontario to run and review a new Pursuit DC 235, a deep vee dual console boat that is an offshore inspired bow rider with strong fishing overtones and a wide range of family features.

It’s what I would call a handsome, classically styled boat that I suspect will still look fresh many years into the future. Jill had a different take on it.
