Manila Mango and Lemongrass Ice Cream

Winter is kind of over now, but it's not really spring yet. Here in Vancouver, it's still rainy. I still have to wear my winter jacket. I still wear a pair of knee high socks sometimes. It still feels like winter. And winter has just gone on too long. I've had enough of the cold and the wet and the gloomy. I want sun! I want to go out in a light jacket! I want to wear something other than my gumboots!

The Big Apple

Whew boy! What a trip. It was a busy 4 day trip full of all the best touristy stuff, plus some little gems that I'd like to think are off the beaten path, or at least as off the beaten path as you can get in such a huge city. Honestly, New York is dense. Every building is just smushed right up against it's neighbors. There's very few back alleys or side streets, so that on garbage day, there's huge piles of garbage bags lined up on the sidewalk. There's just nowhere else to put them. 


But let me tell you, all those things you hear about New York having amazing food - they're all true, as long as you go to the right places. I did not have a bad meal in New York. Every dinner, I was blown away by the sheer scrumdiddlyumptiousness of it all.
In case you're headed off to New York anytime soon, I thought I'd give you a brief rundown on some of my recommendations for restaurants!

Blood Orange Panna Cotta

I didn't intentionally make a pink dessert for Valentines Day, I swear. Last week, I saw some blood oranges and thought they were just beautiful, so I decided to make a dessert out of it. It just so happens that it's kind of pink and it's Valentines Day tomorrow.

Toasted Hazelnut Granola

I'm not a breakfast person. I never have been. I don't know if I ever will be. It's like being a morning person; you are or you are not. Maybe the two tie in together because I am certainly not a morning person. 

My breakfast is usually a big mug of tea. That's it. When I wake up, I never feel like eating. I might be hungry when I wake up, but for the first hour of being awake, I don't enjoy eating, no matter what it is. Crazy, right? After about an hour, I get ravenous. I mean, wolf down anything I can get my hands on.

Chocolate Sticky Toffee Pudding

Read Article →

I will admit that I don't know what a proper English sticky toffee pudding tastes like. I've had a couple here in Canada and I've been to London a few times, but I've never had sticky toffee pudding in England. 

While I've never had a traditional sticky toffee pudding, I know this is not it, mainly because of the addition of chocolate. It's a twist on the original. But still very tasty.
