Lemon Ciambella

Hello everyone! It’s been a journey to make an authentic Ciambella. After scouring the internet and watching countless Italian recipe Youtubers, I finally got the right recipe to share with you all. Ciambella is the perfect coffee or snack cake, it’s not overly sweet or too soft where you would need a plate and fork…

Sicilian Blood Orange Loaf Cake

Hey there! This cake initially caught my eye because of its pretty pink frosting with those lovely, glossy blood orange slices on top and of course, the originality of it. You can always find recipes for lemon cakes or lemon loaves but never blood orange – the rare beauty. I found this where you can find all of…

Banana Bread with Pecans and Chocolate Chips

Hello there, This recipe is a favorite of mine and I make it whenever the occasion presents itself. Meaning: whenever I have bananas that are in a brown, sad state of affairs which is quite often. My husband is reluctant when it comes to fruit in general but I’d occasionally try to have him eat…

High Altitude Ghirardelli Oreo Brownies

These will make your taste buds smile. I am more a fan of Oreos than of brownies to tell the truth but put them together and you’ve got an irresistible combination. They’re not made from scratch, no, but they are soooo sinfully delicious.  When I am not making my black bean brownies, I am makin’…

“Valen-tiny” Chocolate-dipped Espresso-Shortbread Cookies

Inspired by the holiday dedicated to love, love, love.  Nothing says Valentine’s Day like hearts and chocolate. So, I made these cookies over the weekend for a party I was going to. These were, I thought, perfectly Valen-tiny. These are quite small but packed with a deliciously satisfying chocolatey-coffee flavor – highly addictive! I find that adding coffee in one form…

Kitchenette Restaurant

Kitchenette 1353, Rene-Levesque Est Montreal, Qc H2L2M1 514-527-1016 http://kitchenetterestaurant.ca/en Menu:  http://kitchenetterestaurant.ca/assets/files/dinner_menu.pdf   Kitchenette feels like a New York city resto. Built into an old building, small but roomy, casual setting with rough-looking wooden floor, modern tables and chairs. The open-kitchen allowed us to watch the chef busily and dutifully doing his thing. He looked so…

The Best Deep Fried Oreos – NYC Fair Food

Everybody loves fair food, am I right? Corn-dogs (Pogos), funnel cakes, cotton candy and my fav, deep-fried Oreos. I thought that the only place to properly enjoy them would be, where I first discovered them – at the New York Italian Festival, honoring San Gennaro. At his yearly event, you will find kiosk after kiosk…
