Happy 2017, everyone!!! To kick off the new year, I thought I'd share a new spot in the city for sweets and treats. Roll Cake just opened their second location along Corydon and a couple of friends and I decided to check it out. The bakery offers your typical selection of cupcakes, cookies and cafe drinks but what it's really known for is their eggfle. An eggfle is a dessert consisting of a waffle with egg shaped puffs topped with ice cream and your choice of toppings. Totally tastes as good as it sounds. Next thing on my list to try is their Japanese Cheesecake so I'm definitely heading back to Roll Cake soon!
Hey all! Long time no blog. As you may have noticed, since the last post (2 weeks ago), I've acquired a new hairstyle and have totally embrace winter weather in the city. Over the weekend, a friend and I braved the -40 degree weather and head on to one of the newest spots in the city, Bouchee Boucher. Located around the St. Boniface neighbourhood, Bouchee Boucher is one half a butcher shop and one half a restaurant. The limited menu, which changes weekly, consists of sandwiches, salads and other small bites perfect for sharing. Obviously, I had to try their charcuterie board and I totally recommend it. The ambiance is casual and the service is attentive. Aside from dining in, the butcher shop also carries locally made pantry items which are perfect to grab on the go. Bouchee Boucher is a wonderful addition to this neighbourhood and I can't wait to bring other friends back here.

Since getting married, life has had its way of making me even busier. Work has been hectic with the year-end deadlines. Moving to a new place required some adjusting in terms of doing chores and establishing routines. And we all know with the holidays just around the corner, things are going to get a little bit crazier. 2016 has been packed! Needless to say, I have been juggling a couple of things and trying my best to keep organized that the blogging has taken a step back. However, good news is I'm travelling to Toronto in January and I'm taking suggestions on what to do, see and eat. Comment below if you've been to Toronto or currently live there.
