Macarons from Nadege

Must Try Macarons from Nadege

I think it's safe to say I've become a bit of a macaron snob. There are a few places in the city that I still have to try (Laduree!!), but I'm definitely very opinionated about my favourites.

Italian Pistachio Cookies

You may not know, given my pale complexion and blue eyes, but I'm actually half Italian. Hence, we visited a lot of Italian relatives that had said cookies. Italian cookies tend ...

Roasted Garlic Parmesan Rolls

Roasted Garlic Parmesan Rolls

I've always been a lover of garlic. I feel like I tried to suppress that love as a teenager because of bad breath. But let's be honest, garlic makes everything better, and a roasted version is one of the best ways to enjoy it. I don't remember this, but I'm told that when I was a kid, I used to take raw garlic and pretend to ...
