|Thanks for the delish brownies the the tiny Netherlands flag Lindsey!|
(no, they were not *those* kind of brownies. ha, ha)
Because we live so far south, we don't make it to Tres Carnales as often as we'd like, but by a happy coincidence we've been a couple times in the last two weeks. As always, the food, the atmosphere and the people are awesome.
I love letting Danny pick stuff for me to order - recently he got me to try my tacos 'volcan' style, which involves frying cheese on the griddle before the tortilla is placed on top, flipped over and topped with whichever topping you want. It was definitely a tasty addition to my chorizo taco (along with their house-made extra hot sauce). Thanks for the excellent food Tres Carnales, I will definitely miss you while we're away!
Things have been pretty busy around here as we get ready to head overseas. I'm way behind on blogging and I haven't been doing much cooking, but I still have a few things to share. I made this banana chocolate chip loaf a little while ago. It's a pretty healthy recipe that requires lots of very ripe bananas (brown spots are a must) to make up for the small amount sugar in the recipe. It also had wheat germ and ground flax, so it made the perfect breakfast on the go or mid-morning snack at work.
Whimsical Cake Studio for some cupcakes this weekend. Their cupcakes are so good - I love that the cake is slightly dense, but flavourful and moist. I also love that they make a variety of flavours of cake, rather than just chocolate, vanilla and red velvet like most of the cupcake shops in Edmonton. My favourites are the 'Berry Lovely' a strawberry cake topped with vanilla buttercream and the 'Cookie Dough' a marble cake topped with cookie dough frosting and mini chocolate chips. I have a confession to make...I even ate a cupcake for breakfast...don't tell any of the dietitians I work with.
