We were at the Calgary Farmer’s Market and found that Cruff’s has opened a location, and a trip to the farmer’s market will never be the same, as theses could become a favorite indulgence. First you pick your shell, and there are lots of different toppings, candies, nuts, icing, chocolate and several combinations of those; then pick your filling – Chantilly Cream, Hazelnut Chocolate, Strawberry, Coconut, Baileys are just a few of the fillings, and then a friendly staff member will fill your cream puff, there is almost an endless variety, which can be a problem for the waistline!. Give them a try, you won’t regret a little indugence!
I love breakfast, it is my favorite meal of the day, and I have to admit, while I don’t often indulge in a breakfast like this, it is one of my favorites. Ed Benedict – two eggs, grilled tomatoes, lots of cheese on whole wheat toast, and hashbrown potatoes , not exactly the healthiest breakfast in town, but every once in a while………………
Service has always been good. On the weekend, unless you get there early, you are likely to face a line up at the door, The building has been around for about 119 years; for a little history checkout calgarykiosk.ca
During our stay in Dubrovnik Toni’s Spagetti was highly recommended, off one of the little laneways just off the Stratun it is easy to find – but you do have to pass at least one pizza joint – and it is hard to tell where one restaurant stops and another one starts, it is worth the time to find. The food is fresh, well cooked and simple, and a great idea when looking for something other than seafood! The staff is very friendly, give it a try and tell them I sent you!
I love mushrooms, you can bake, broil, deep-fry, grill, roast, saute, steam and stew them. You can eat them raw alone or in a salad, you can use them in stock or in soup and you can stuff them! Reading the Flavor Bible by Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg I realize there are so many types of mushrooms I get lost in the names, I am sure that I could spend a month trying new recipes that feature mushrooms and not eat the same one twice!
Mushrooms are also a great subject to photograph! These little guys, and I emphasis little because I don’t think they were much more than an inch tall, were growing in my back yard, more precisely on the mat at the bottom of the deckstairs. I was laying on the ground just inches from the mushrooms, using my macro lens. Success, I have captured wild mushrooms! while I won’t be eating these little guys, I now crave something mushroomy for dinner!
