Canada Day weekend is almost here and what better way to celebrate it than with poutine! Known as our unofficial national dish, poutine is as ingrained into us as hockey is. Poutine traditionally is a very simple French Canadian dish. Fresh cut french fries are smothered in cheese curds then covered in hot gravy. The cheese melts and creates a delicious, but fattening, meal. Americans have adopted our dish and it is quickly becoming world renowned.

The fries/cheese/gravy combo is a great base for extraordinary flavors. Here are 10 amazing variations to try!

If you want to know the best cupcake shop in any major city in America, just ask Angela. This girl knows her sweets, and she isn't shy about letting you know that your german chocolate cake needs more chocolate. If you want to find Angela on any given day, she's probably looking up reviews to decide where to grab lunch, or in her downtime, binge-watching the latest 'it-series' on Netflix.
