Which means I will have to compensate by cooking lots of delicious things. I made these wicked cinnamon buns last weekend oozing with caramel and slathered in vanilla bean cream cheese icing. But they all got eaten before I could intervene with the camera. Oops. Did I mention that they were also filled with chunks of apple? I decided that since Harvest is much too unreliable, I will just make my own instead. And make them better. I should sell them and call them "I can't believe they're not Harvest". Aha.
One place that has received more of my business lately is Manuel Latruwe Belgian Patisserie. They won me over with their Nutella icecream so last week I decided to surprise the family with dessert. Tip day - an excellent excuse to spend extra cash on delicious, fattening treats.
