Beerlicious.jpgIt's wedding season but for Ted Reader that perfect union is beer and barbecue.

(The award-winning chef and cookbook author even has a man-cave with two beer fridges.)

But in his new cookbook Beerlicious, the king of the grill goes way beyond beer-can chicken.

Recipes such as the Leffe Brune Peanut Brittle BBQ Rub and Rolling Rock catfish are just one of a hundred creative combinations he's come up with.

Well Stressed, the antidote to mammoth problems

Well Stressed by Sonia Lupien.jpgWe face stressful situations every day - at work, at home, our health, finances, heartbreak and global warming.

But stress by itself isn't necessarily a bad thing.

You just have to learn how to understand - and manage it.

That's the message of a new book by Dr Sonia Lupien titled Well Stressed: Manage Stress Before It Turns Toxic.

Dr Lupien is a psychiatry professor at the Université de Montréal and the founder and director of the Centre for Studies on Human Stress.

She shared her approach to handling stress with Sonali Karnick.

His first guide sold 7,000 copies. His second is titled "Quebec, Birthplace of New France" - and this time it takes us through the city's Lower Town.
