  • Cape Breton Local Diet: Alicia Lake set out in September of 2011 to eat only food grown on Cape Breton Island for a whole month. She blogged about it, then kept on writing about local food. She did the CB-only challenge again in September 2012. Now, her brother-in-law Dave Williams and his wife Faith is carrying on the torch. Lots of great recipes and photos.
