Best of Toronto Macarons: Part 4 – Overall


Finally, part 4 of my first “Best of Toronto Macarons” series is my favourite/overall/all-around macaron place in Toronto: Nadège Patisserie. Originally with only one location in Queen West, they have expanded with a shop in Rosedale as well as some smaller boutique locations around the city. Back when the Queen St location first opened, I […]


Waiting on Wednesday 38


Through all the years of Paris Month, I’ve read a lot of books of both contemporary and historical fiction. Not often do I come across one that is historical fiction but also incorporates superstitions and the occult arts. I’m completely intrigued and fascinated at this book’s premise and can’t wait to read it! The cover […]

Best of Toronto Macarons: Part 3 – Hidden Gems


Part 3 of my Best of Toronto Macarons is another two-way tie, but for two separate reasons. This week, I share with you two of the hidden gems that I’ve discovered in the last few months. For some, they may not be “hidden” at all but to me, they are outside of the regular patisseries […]

Waiting on Wednesday 37


This week’s Waiting on Wednesday is a bit of a unique item. While it’s from  Chronicle Books/Raincoast Books, and it IS available on Goodreads, it’s not quite a book. This City Scratch-Off Map of Paris is a “sight-seeing scavenger hunt” which looks delightfully fun!  On the one side is an illustrated map of Paris must-see […]

Waiting on Wednesday 36


I haven’t done a Waiting on Wednesday post since last year’s Paris Month! This week, I’m excited to share this upcoming book by Christine Sneed, the award-winning author of Little Known Facts. The story sounds interesting, and I absolutely love everything about the cover. The font, the photograph… it seems to evoke the elegance and glamour […]

Best of Toronto Macarons: Part 1 – Unique Flavours

So for this year’s Paris Month, I will be counting down the “best of” of macaron patisseries around Toronto that I love. Of course, there […]
