Gulity Pleasure

Sure, ordering coffee from Seattle isn't the best way to celebrate Earth Day, but what a fine guilty pleasure it is. Caffe Vita has been one of my favorites from way back when I wouldn't have to pay for shipping and could pick some up while in Seattle visiting friends over a weekend. Sigh; what coffee love will do to us.
We ordered the old standby "Queen City Blend", never disappoints with the full mouthfeel and lush nutty chocolate finish. If only we could go to Uptown Bakery and grab a couple of scones now.

All things lemon are lovely

A serious shout out to our favorite food blog of late. Smitten Kitchen. All would be smart to bookmark this site now. Run don't walk!

April in Paris?

For the past few weeks, we have been loving french macaroons, really. A trip to Laduree in Paris this April is a mere fantasy for now - but we can daydream....and frequent the most amazingly fantastic patisserie, Bittersweet, right here in Chicago. It's only a short bicycle ride away and since we have been enjoying all 6 flavors (pistachio, lemon, raspberry, almond, chocolate, vanilla) per visit, it's a good thing we are on 2 wheels.
