You can also make mussels in the comfort of your own home. It only takes 20 minutes and will cost you around $10. This is also a stellar date night dish if you are looking to impress that special someone. You can pick up Price Edward Island (PEI) mussels (or local if in season) from your fishmonger or Whole Foods along with some white wine, shallots and butter and you are halfway done. I typically pair my mussels at home with a crusty bread as opposed to fries but you can decide what you prefer. Check out the following ‘Easy to Make Mussels’ recipe which originally appeared on The Refined Chef.

By Nick Christophers Art is such a broad word that there is no true meaning for it encompasses so many facets. For each artist their art is unique in its own way. Hence it is difficult to find a specific meaning for the word art without taking into […]
By Leyla Shamayeva It was almost zero degrees outside. Even though it’s slightly warmer now, the puddles around the city are not feet-friendly. I won’t blame you if you’re reluctant to venture outside. I will blame you if you’re idle in your apartment, using winter as an excuse […]
