{Quick post: Winter is approaching and what I’m loving lately..}

Just giving an update on life back from Paris…walks home are sure different from last month. Going from the lovely warm shades of fall…

..to barren trees and the chill of winter in the air…

…oh how i miss walking home in bright sunlight…

..although the colours of the sky at dusk is quite beautiful..

…still craving sweets.. especially deep rich chocolate…

…in cupcake form is nice…

..next time you get a chocolate craving , make sure you try one of these at Choklat in Inglewood…mm.. dreamy swirls of luscious frosting..

…how to use up an enormous stock pile of apples in the fridge…bake some homemade apple chips with a dash of cinnamon (bake thin slice in oven at 250F for about 3 hours, turning over twice during baking)..mm.. so addictively delicious..

…need a quick dinner? how about a colourful autumn inspired flatbread..spread a round of naan bread with olive tapenade, add roasted acorn squash, sundried tomatoes, roasted red onions, cherry tomatoes and fresh basil and a handful of feta crumbled on top…

400F in the oven and 10 minutes later…voila!

..for the boy’s I had sliced turkey and extra cheese…

…for dessert…try the CRMR at Home chocolate dipped shortbread…it’s to die for..

…melt in your mouth buttery goodness with a rich dark chocolate coating on one half..

and double the thickness of a regular shortbread cookie…they come in packs of two if you’re willing to share…

…and a new addition to our family.. my long-awaited birthday present from my dad finally arrived in the mail.. this ice blue artisan Kitchenaid stand mixerswooooon…

…a thing of beauty…creams butter and sugar like a dream..I already tested it out with key lime coconut sable cookie w/ white chocolate passionfruit glaze..recipe to come..

    If you like the CRMR at Home cookies, you have to try the cookie plate at Velvet restaurant in the Grand Theater. They are amazing, I dream about them! They have the shortbread warm from the over!!!
