1 pc. Center Cut Ontario Pork Belly

2 tbsp. of Kosher Salt

1 tbsp. Chinese 5 Spice

1 tbsp. White Vinegar

This recipe is basic in its ingredients, but technical in its preparation. But don’t worry, you just need a little patience and care and you can have the best roast pork you have ever had!

Note: Try to get a nice even center cut of pork belly from your local butcher or try to get a nice Ontario pork cut from a local farmer! Make sure they leave the skin on!


1. Lightly score the skin with a very sharp knife, trying not to cut through the fat to the meat. This is very important! You just want to score the skin only.

2. Rub the bottom of the pork belly, flesh side with a little salt and the Chinese 5 spice

3. Rub the white vinegar on the skin side and place in our fridge, uncovered for 3 days! The vinegar helps draw out the moisture

4. Remove the pork belly from fridge and place the 2 tbsp of Kosher salt on the skin side and put back in the fridge for 5 hours.

5. Remove the salt from skin and then boil 1 litre of water in a separate pan

6. Pour the boiling water over the skin of the pork and then pat it dry

7. Heat your oven to 400 F and place the pork belly in the oven for 15 minutes.

8. Drop the heat to 300 F and continue to cook the pork belly for approximately 30 minutes or until 165F internal temp.

9. IF you have a broiler, place the pork belly under the broiler very quickly to puff the skin and crisp. Be very careful to keep and eye on the pork so it does not burn. Do not walk away

10. Remove from oven, let rest for 15 minutes and enjoy!

TIP: The skin will be so crispy that a serrated bread knife is ideal for cutting!

Google's perception OF YOU

A Look at Online Privacy and Why It Matters

In the digital age, our online activities leave behind a trail of data that is meticulously collected and analyzed by tech giants like Google. While the convenience of personalized services and targeted advertisements has become an integral part of our online experience, it raises concerns about privacy and the extent of personal information available to these companies. This article delves into the idea of deliberately confusing Google’s perception of you and explores the reasons why individuals might want to take control of their online identities.

The Era of Data Collection

Google, being one of the largest and most influential tech companies, collects an immense amount of data about its users. From search queries and location data to preferences and online behavior, Google builds a comprehensive profile of each user. While this data is used to enhance user experience and provide personalized services, it also raises questions about the privacy and security of personal information.

Personalized services vs. Privacy Concerns

The personalized services offered by Google, such as tailored search results, targeted advertisements, and recommendations, are the result of sophisticated algorithms that analyze user data. While these services can

Importance of online privacy

Privacy is a fundamental right, and many individuals are becoming increasingly aware of the need to protect their personal information online. Data breaches, identity theft, and the misuse of personal information have become common concerns. By deliberately confusing Google’s perception of you, you can take a proactive stance in safeguarding your privacy and controlling the narrative of your online identity.

be convenient, they also highlight the vast amount of personal information that companies have access to. Some individuals may find it unsettling that their online activities are closely monitored and used to shape their online experience.

reducing targeted advertsing

One of the primary reasons to consider confusing Google’s perception of you is to minimize targeted advertising. Advertisers leverage user data to create personalized and relevant ads, but this practice can feel invasive to some individuals. By intentionally providing misleading or mixed signals, users can make it more challenging for advertisers to accurately target them based on their preferences and behaviors.

Taking control of your digital footprint

Confusing Google’s perception of you involves taking control of your digital footprint and actively managing the information you share online. This includes using privacy settings, opting out of data collection when possible, and being mindful of the content you share on various platforms. By doing so, you can shape a more accurate and private online identity.

Glowing Beauty, Bold Vision

There are two types of companies in the beauty industry: those content with the status quo, and then there’s Cheekbone Beauty—a seismic force disrupting conventions and ushering in a new era. At its helm stands a visionary not content with merely joining the beauty conversation but determined to reshape its very essence.

This isn’t just a cosmetics brand; it’s an insurgency. Cheekbone Beauty is more than a collection of pigments and powders; it’s a statement, a manifesto challenging the status quo. It’s a celebration of power, purpose, and products with a resonance that reverberates beyond the mirror. Welcome to a revolution where Cheekbone Beauty isn’t just adorning faces; it’s adorning empowerment. Cheekbone Beauty emerges as a game-changer, not just in cosmetics but in societal values. Founded by the unstoppable force that is Jenn Harper, this brand is a celebration of resilience, representation, and the audacious spirit of Indigenous heritage.

Dreams Unleashed

Jenn Harper’s ascent to the CEO throne wasn’t a smooth ride; it was a wild dream unleashed in 2015. Two years of relentless dedication brought forth Cheekbone Beauty, with Harper’s drive stemming from a belief that beauty should be sustainable, inclusive, and, above all, representative.

“You see, I strongly felt that the beauty industry was in dire need of a brand that not only exemplified sustainability but also championed inclusivity. I firmly believe that representation truly matters.” Imparts Harper.

The entrepreneurial path presented some challenges, particularly due to the

staggering funding gap for Indigenous businesses in Canada. Armed with a mere $500 and a basement corner, Harper navigated the tumultuous terrain, emphasizing the pivotal role funding plays in scaling a business. Harper expresses, “The whole concept of bootstrapping, it can only get you so far.”

The rise of Cheekbone Beauty is nothing short of a cosmic explosion in the beauty cosmos. Now gracing the shelves of Sephora and JCPenney , the brand is rewriting the beauty narrative. Harper views this as a leap in market reach and a chance to reshape perceptions about sustainable beauty. Her strong belief in the power of eco-friendly products

is felt, while she articulates “Now we have the perfect platform to show beauty enthusiasts just how well sustainable beauty works. It’s time to revolutionize the way we think about beauty and make a positive impact on the planet.”

Harper’s personal philosophy isn’t confined to a vision board; it breathes life into the ethos of the organization. Her transformative journey unveiled the power to create and design one’s destiny—a principle embedded in the brand’s entire DNA. Building things that matter and giving back isn’t just a strategy; it’s a way of life.

Crafting Beauty For All.

Transcending the realm of cosmetics, Cheekbone Beauty spearheads a cultural movement that not only pays homage to its Indigenous roots but breaks barriers to become a brand for everyone. Originating from a profound connection with the land, the brand meticulously crafts sustainable, interwoven products, named in diverse Indigenous languages, echoing the stories of generations past and present.

“Indigenous peoples have navigated and lived off the land for thousands of years. At Cheekbone Beauty, we honour our Indigenous roots by only taking what is needed from the land while crafting our sustainable, colour cosmetics. We nurture our relationship with the land and its resources, as we believe all things in nature are interconnected.” Says Harper, conveying this is referred to as the 7th Generation Principle. She continues “This is derived from the Iroquois people, which suggests that we not only leave enough for the next generation but leave enough for the next seven. Each of our product lines follows a naming convention related to elements of the natural world and the words for them in various Indigenous languages.”

Cheekbone Beauty honours its Indigenous heritage and shines as a beacon of inclusivity. Beyond the confines of cultural boundaries, it’s carving its place in the mainstream, inviting people of all backgrounds to embrace its sustainable and culturally rich offerings. The brand’s journey signifies a shift, where the beauty it creates becomes a universal language, weaving threads of diversity into the fabric of everyday rituals. Cheekbone Beauty’s allure is not at all confined to a specific demographic; it is a celebration that resonates with everyone, reflecting the harmonious blend of tradition and modernity in the everevolving landscape of beauty.

true beauty lies in giving back . . .

Setting the media scene ablaze, Cheekbone Beauty doesn’t just capture attention; it commands the spotlight. From the pulsating streets of Beauty News NYC to the pages of industry heavyweights like Elixuer, Chatelaine, and Allure, this brand is a headline sensation. CTV News, BNN Bloomberg, and CBC News amplify the crescendo, ensuring Cheekbone Beauty’s narrative is heard across the nation. Harper, the maestro behind the glamour, not only graces but dominates glossy features in Marie Claire, InStyle, and more. With a media performance that’s both rhythmic and dazzling, Cheekbone Beauty is the undisputed star of the show, leaving an indelible mark on the beauty and business stage.

Amidst All The Gloss From Centre Stage to Behind The Curtain

Amidst all the gloss and glam, Cheekbone Beauty isn’t forgetting its mission. This is about more than looking good; it’s about doing good. With over $250,000 in donations, the brand passionately supports Indigenous causes, focusing on youth and representation. The Scholarship Fund, linked to exclusive launches, is poised to double its impact in 2024, emphasizing that true beauty lies in giving back. Cheekbone Beauty’s philanthropic efforts extend further to various causes, including Shannen’s Dream, First Nations Child & Family Caring Society (FNCFCS), the Navajo Water Project, One Tree Planted, and numerous non-profit organizations across North America. As the brand thrives, so does its commitment to creating positive change.

Entering the illustrious realm of big-box stores in North America, what began as a formidable challenge transformed into a triumph of resilience, redefining Cheekbone Beauty’s brand narrative. The tale of securing a coveted spot on the shelves of major retail giants is not just a milestone; it’s a testament to Cheekbone Beauty’s unwavering commitment to authenticity, inclusivity, and making a resounding impact in the world of beauty.

In Canada, Sephora wasn’t an easy win. Rejected initially from its Accelerator program, Harper’s resilience kicked in. After

product tweaks and branding finesse, the green light flashed in January 2021. With a robust product line available online as well as in more than 50 stores across Canada, the Sephora partnership isn’t just a shelf space achievement: it’s a declaration of Cheekbone Beauty’s arrival. In the United States, Cheekbone Beauty’s presence in all JCPenney locations and online is equally impressive.

“It was an incredible feeling to see our hard work pay off. Don’t give up on your dreams, my friends. Keep pushing and amazing things will happen!” encourages Harper.

Being on the shelves at Sephora and JCPenney isn’t just visibility; it’s a roar. Cheekbone Beauty’s presence in brick-and-mortar stores across North America injects legitimacy and high energy into this mighty independent brand. Authenticity speaks louder, and Cheekbone Beauty is the megaphone.
