Gluten Free Sugar Cookies and Brussels Sprouts

Happy belated Thanksgiving, y’all! I am trying my best to acclimate to my surroundings, so, therefore, Thanksgiving and “y’all” are necessary.   This past year, I unfortunately lost my grandmother. She was a strong, funny, and amazing woman. She was the best listener and the […]

Éclairs

Yesterday was Canada Day- it is the first time in my life that I was not in Canada for it and I was a bit homesick. It is incredibly close in terms of its date with the 4th of July in the US and therefore […]

Custard Fruit Tart

Custard Fruit Tart

Montreal is amazing in that it has specialty shops everywhere. Fromageries, butchers, bakeries, it is all wonderful. There was a bakery that was very close to our house and a few times a year we would pick up a dessert from there for a family […]
