Other than that, I attended StartUp Festival in Montreal where I mixed and chatted with acres of amazingly smart, positive, industrious entrepreneurs.

Ironically, despite it being a tech start up conference, the theme of the event was Luck, as in, do you believe in luck? Is luck without hard work possible? Are some people just naturally luckier than others? It got me thinking. For instance, do recipes turn out better for positive people? Find out with this month’s free recipes and some tasty new ones. Or better yet, if you want more luck in your baking - just start with great ingredients and tools and right - a great recipe from Then you won't have to worry about luck......well, not too much!
