Cooking Without Fire
Cool Recipes for Summer
By Kirk Leins

My grandmother had a saying. Anytime I’d prematurely bite into hot food and burn my mouth, she’d say, “So, what did you expect? It was cooked with fire.” I’m relaying this anecdote because it’s somewhat timely. During the summer months, turning on the oven in your kitchen means heating up your entire home like a sauna. So, what do you expect? You’re cooking with fire. If you viewed the video at the beginning of the article, you’ve already gotten a glimpse at the dessert component of my gourmet summertime meal which is cooked “without fire.”

Divorce and Credit: What You Need to Know
By Linda Ferrari
President, Credit Resource Corp.

One out of every two marriages ends in divorce. That's a daunting statistic and one that brings with it an abundance of emotional and financial upheaval for those involved. This statistic also reinforces how important it is that individuals learn how they can protect their credit standing in the face of a major life change; a change that will surely impact their financial situation.

Protecting Yourself From the Sun
Tips for a Safe & Happy Summer

Not only is a “golden tan” the objective of every sun worshiper, it’s also frequently perceived as a visual indicator of one’s overall health. In terms of medical reality, however, these sentiments are quite alarming; especially when you consider their potential ramifications. The sun produces both visible and invisible rays.
