The difference between a good cook and a great cook lies in one’s ability to season. Of course, there are many other factors at stake but if you use the best seasoning, then surely the rest follows!
Until August 26th 2013, Canadians have the chance to sign up for the chance to win a 2.5g sample of their Herbamare sea salt seasoning, which is available in three flavors: original, zesty or sodium-free.
Although only 5,000 entrants will be selected at random, it’s still worth entering especially since it only takes a couple of seconds!
With the intense hotness and humidity that most Canadian regions have been facing lately, one of the best ways to cool off is with a refreshing Starbucks iced coffee. But, why waste gas driving to a Starbucks location when you can make it in the comfort of your own home for much cheaper?
For a limited time, the purchase of an Iced Coffee Brewer at Starbucks will guarantee you a free one pound bag of Kenya coffee. This is a particularly sweet offer considering that the brewer is $34.95 and that the bag of coffee’s regular price is of $16.95.
For those who have perhaps never tried the Kenya blend, it’s a bold coffee with full body and hints of citrus and currant that are particularly refreshing when served over ice.
In case Starbucks is part of your morning commute, don’t forget that Starbucks’ Treat Receipt is back on and if you bring back a morning receipt after 2pm, then you can enjoy a Grande iced beverage for just $2!
As a daily user of Apple’s products, here are two words I never thought I would see together: “free” and “apps“.

Surprisingly enough, to celebrate 5 years of its App Store’s existence, Apple has decided to reward its users with the following 5 free apps and 5 free games:
Barefoot World Atlas
Day One (Journal/ Diary)
How to Cook Everything
Traktor DJ for iPhone
Infinity Blade II

In fact, all registered users are provided with 1 TB of storage absolutely free of charge!
The availability of so much storage, albeit only for pictures or video clips, greatly trumps other giants in the field such as Google and Facebook and has turned Flickr into a worthy contender, despite a number of criticisms over the new layout – although, isn’t almost every new layout much hated at first (i.e. Facebook’s ever-changing look)?

Today only, on Earth Day 2013, Starbucks is giving out a free brewed coffee or tea to anyone who brings a re-usable coffee mug (tumbler, travel mug, etc.).
Find out where your nearest Starbucks is with the handy store locator.
Speaking of which, though it makes sense to think that bold coffee has the most caffeine, did you know that it’s actually the opposite? Lighter brews hold the most caffeine as the longer beans are roasted, the more caffeine is lost.
So, when the Starbucks baristas ask: “what kind”, which will be your answer to this daily asked question?
In celebration of Earth Day, which yearly falls on April 22nd, David’s Tea is offering customers the chance to get free tea at any of its locations. Since they won’t be giving out actual cups of free tea to remain as environmentally friendly as possible during this big day, be sure to bring a travel mug or tumbler in order to enjoy a free tea of the day.
Though they have an ongoing promotion where a $0.50 rebate is applied upon the refill of a tea tin, in honor of Earth Day, David’s Tea has upped the ante by offering double the rebate (a rebate of $1) until April 22nd, 2013.

Even better is that the pudding comes in 3 mouth-watering flavors: English Toffee, French Vanilla or Chocolate.
Since you’re only given 100 characters to describe your Suprême Moment, it doesn’t have to be anything overly complicated and can be as simple as: “when I can sleep in on Sunday” or perhaps “baking a pudding cake for my loved ones“.
