Got a food-lover in your life? Stuck on what to get them? Let me show you the way with my foodie gift guide.
I took the day off last Monday to spend time with my two nieces. Between shopping, binge-watching our favorite television shows, and napping, we decided to bake a lemon loaf.
Calling all Montrealers: Marché des Éclusiers is a new market in town and it’s definitely something to check out.
The Old Port has always been one of my favorite places to visit. Whether it’s on a date with Joe or if I’m taking out-of-town family on a walking tour, the scenery is just so beautiful and it’s incredibly rich in history. Now, Old Montreal has just stepped up its game with a brand-spankin’ new farmer’s market: Marché des Éclusiers. We were lucky enough to check it out last weekend and I must say, I’m already itching to go back.
Usually after dinnertime, I’ll often feel this jolt of excitement and the next thing I know, I’ll be craving my next, best treat. I’m not kidding. I am a walking sweet tooth and my constant dessert cravings can get a little out of hand.
Something’s changed, though. For the past several days I’ve been carrying on without this jolt and have been getting through a number of evenings without eating any dessert. There are many possibilities as to why and I’ve narrowed them down to two: a) My 7-year-old sweet tooth has finally caught up with my actual age or, b) I’m getting tired of my usual “go-to” treats.
Must be option b.
I have, however, had the urge to bake. While I lacked inspiration for my own cravings, I knew that I had all of the ingredients for one of my husband’s personal favorites: chocolate chip oatmeal cookies.
I pulled this recipe from Averie Cooks and as always, my batches came out ooey, gooey, and perfect.
I always love baking for others, but help me find my sweet tooth again! What are some desserts you suggest that I try?
