Now here’s the deal, I can cook but I can’t bake! It’s a fact. I can make pancakes though, I’m sure this counts for something, eh?
Some of us are more on the ” Salty” side and others ” Sweets” side. I am with the SALT! Pass me the chips, salsa, more chips and pretzels. There are times when I crave sweets, t0 later direct myself towards the pantry to find nothing in sight I can snack on, major bummer. But I will have 3 different types of chips and crackers to choose from.
I love exploring different restaurants when I am in the city. I like to taste new meals, finding new places to eat and excite my taste buds. I can’t speak for everyone on this, but for me it’s a pleasure. I love being able to create new dishes, mix flavours, and take a leap of faith with the herbs and spices rack. Have you ever tried mixing Sriracha sauce and Agave nectar before? I have, and it’s amazing! Try it! It turns into this sweet and tangy glaze, perfect for an oven roasted potato dish.
While downtown, of course randomly out of nowhere a sudden urge for sucrerie – sugar in French, tingled me. After leaving Dekalb’s Farmer’s Market, my friend suggested we stop by Southern Sweets Bakery, located right across the market. They are a bakery and cafe who serve vegan cakes and as well as regular cakes. They offer 11 different flavours of vegan cakes. Now that’s luxury.
After playing tag you’re it over the counter selection, I decided to go with a slice of the Strawberry Layer Cake. 100% Vegan. 100% Pureness. The first bite was glorious; the fresh strawberry glaze, moist layer, and whipped cream all in one it almost made me cry. I couldn’t contain myself of excitement, because it was one of the best things i’ve ever tasted.
I would hope for the Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse to be a mixture of a Reesee’s Peanut Butter Cup!
I like the idea of it, don’t you?
If you’re in the area and are craving a little sweetness to your day, stop by.
I suggest the Strawberry Layer Cake as your first try.
There’s nothing like a classic!
