On the FoodTv Canada blog I’ve previously posted about my love of New Generation Sushi, which is in my opinion one of the best sushi joints in the Annex, (Toronto) so when New Generation opened a second restaurant, New Generation Grill Fusion, I was looking forward to trying it out. As you can read in my review of the Korean version of New Gen, I was not so impressed and I think I’ll just stick with my sushi from now on.

Over on the FoodieView site I’ve written a round up of cherry recipes. Cherries have a special place in my heart because ever since I was born I’ve spent part of every summer in my Grandparents cherry orchard. As soon as I was old enough to do more than sit in my crib and pop cherries in my mouth, (which I wouldn’t stop doing unless they were removed from my reach) I was put to work picking, sorting or selling cherries. Working in an orchard means getting up early to pick while it’s still cool and then spending the rest of the day sorting and selling the cherries you picked in the morning. Despite the hard work, I’ve always loved cherry season because it means family time and delicious eats!

And finally, also on Paper Palate, I reviewed Martha Stewart’s new book, Cookies: The Very Best Treats to Bake and to Share. I wondered at first if I really needed a book devoted entirely to cookies but as soon as I got my hands on it I determined that the answer to that question was a resounding yes. When the review went up on Paper Palate I had baked my way through Iced Oatmeal Applesauce Cookies, Lemon-Poppy Seed Crisps, Banana Walnut Chocolate Chunk Cookies, and Turtle Brownies. Since then I’ve tried about half a dozen more cookie recipes from this book and will be posting an enhanced review right here whenever I get around to it, (don’t hold your breath, I thought it would have happened by now but I’ve lost any concept of time I might once have had and nothing gets done when I think it should).

And with that, I’m off for a bike ride in the sunshine, enjoy!
