Sweet Tooth rolled Ice Cream

Rolled Ice Cream – I think I’m a little late to the party, because a friend was trying to get me to try out rolled ice cream LAST summer when there was a food truck in Calgary specializing in it. However… that never did happen. (Food trucks are always downtown during lunch and I don’t work downtown!)

Colourful tarts and other goodies from Nourish Kitchen and Bakery

At the end of April a friend invited me to the YYC Alternative Market. In the back of my mind I really hoped that the market would be retro-funky-goth-cool… and while there were a lot of vendors there that fit that bill – I was also super happy see my friends from Nourish Kitchen and Bakery!

Every time I’m down at the Market On MacLeod (usually to get sushi!) I swing by Kruse’s Bakery too. There are a few things I love every time I go – like their lemon strudel or the hockey pucks – but I also usually am coersed into trying one or two other things too. Luckily I don’t have a gluten/ dairy/ egg intolerance, so the bakery-world is my tasty oyster!

Parc de la Chute-Montmorency

Lovely dessert

Lovely dessert

On the same trip where we visited the sugar shack and enjoyed Maple Syrup treats we also stopped at Parc de la Chute-Montmorency – the park with Montmorency Falls. There’s a charming hotel there, Manoir Montmorency. We had lunch there that was really lovely – in a room with a sky-painted ceiling. (Though no views of the falls unfortunately!)

My photos of the falls were super rushed, so they weren’t very good, so here’s a pretty photo from a photographer on Instagram!
