Tim Hortons Churro Donut…is it though?? 

The two words ‘churro donut’, in and of itself, should make your mouth water – am I right?!?! It sure does mine. So when we saw that Timmy’s had created one of their own, we had to give it a try. At first glance it looks like a crueller covered in cinnamon sugar. And when I bit into it…that’s where it fell flat for me. It tasted just as I described above with the addition of a caramel filling I could do without. Now, for a crueller covered in cinnamon sugar, it hit the mark for sure!! But to call it a churro is sadly a gross overstatement.

Starbucks Tuxedo Mocha

This past week I saw a sign at a local Starbucks, for the Tuxedo Beverage Collection. It includes a mocha, hot chocolate and Frapp. It was for a limited time too, ending January 1st 2017. We decided to try the mocha, made from a combination of regular and white chocolate mochas and espresso. Topped with steamed milk, whipped cream, chocolate drizzle and chocolate shavings. I wasn’t sure if I would like it, since I’m not a huge fan of white chocolate. But I was pleasantly surprised. Would try it again. If you’re a fan of chocolate, I think you’ll like this concoction!!

Cheers Everyone 🙂

Indigo Kitchen Peppermint Chocolate Chip Brownie Mix

We had bought this a long time ago AFTER Christmas on sale from Chapter’s LOL I noticed the Best Before date was coming up, so we made them yesterday. Being that it’s a mix, it was super simple to make by adding the eggs, oil and some water. After baking for 30mins the peppermint crumbles was added to the top and cooled off. We got 16 squares out of the 8×8 pan used, and I was excited to try a piece before putting them away. But, unfortunately we weren’t very impressed. I mean, it tasted like a brownie, but I was hoping it would taste more pepperminty then it was. I think if we added peppermint oil to the batter, it would be MUCH better, but that’s just us!! Anyway we won’t buy these again, but at least we have some brownies for dessert LOL

Beyti Kebab in Mississauga

So, we checked out this place for the first time a month or so ago, and the photos are from that particular visit 🙂 It’s a very small place, run by a very friendly Turkish couple. Their menu isn’t large, but it doesn’t have to be either. We ordered the lamb pide, as well as chicken doner (shawarma) but I couldn’t get a good photo of it, so I didn’t want to add it LOL But believe me when I say, it was yummy!! As well as the lamb pide. If you like Turkish cuisine and appreciate friendly service, I would suggest you give Beyti Kebab a visit. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!! 🙂

The Stooges Family Restaurant – August 3, 2014

(photo courtesy of Trevor G. on Yelp – thanks!!)

My hubby and I met my parents, down in Port Credit, this past Sunday evening. We were hungry, so we decided to try out The Stooges Family Restaurant, located right behind the Starbucks. We had previously eaten at the restaurant, when it was called Helen’s, and always enjoyed their Fish & Chips. So when we saw that The Stooges had Fish & Chips on their menu, we decided to give it a try. Good thing I asked the wait-staff, how big the portions were, because when she said it was pretty big – my hubby and I decided to share.

Glad we did too!! We each got a decent sized piece of Halibut, with  fries and a mound of coleslaw to share. The coating around the fish was thin, light and crisp. Can’t go wrong with fries, and the oil/vinegar coleslaw was great too…but I’m partial to oil/vinegar coleslaw over creamy. My Dad got the Fish & Chips as well,  and took half of it home. My Mom got the Montreal Smoked Meat Sandwich, and took half of it home well. The prices are reasonable for the portions you get as well. Our Fish & Chips were $16 and my Mom’s choice was either $11 or $14 (can’t remember LOL). If you’re ever in the Port Credit area, give them a try, I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.

The Guilty Dog Coffee House – June 22, 2014

My hubby and I finally paid a visit to this coffee house, after months and months of passing it by, and wanting to check it out. It’s a cozy little place, with a well-versed barista at the ready, to make whatever you like.

We decided to have iced coffee, so he made us iced Americanos, since they were out of drip coffee for that day. We also got a piece of iced lemon pound cake to share…one of many baked goodies, brought in by a local baker in the area. The Americanos were freshly crafted, and the pound cake had just the right amount of lemon for us. Most times we do take-out, but on this day, we chose to enjoy our drink and cake, at one of the nearby tables. The Guilty Dog, has a nice atmosphere, and we’ll definitely stop by again soon. If you’re ever in the Port Credit area, you should give them a try. They’re located in the plaza just west of Port Credit Harbour, right after the Royal Bank. For a bit more info, you can peruse their page below, as they don’t have a dedicated website.
