Lola Coasters (Vancouver)
Creamsicle, Peanut Butter and Jelly
Sometimes I feel glutinous eating marshmallows on their own. Thankfully someone has decided to make gourmet ones sandwiched between two soft graham crackers so I don’t have to feel so guilty about pigging out!
The Summer s’more flavours (including Cotton Candy, Bacon, Piña Colada, and Pink Lemonade - to name a few) are delicious and pastel coloured! Perfect for my Birthday party!
Ensemble Tap (Vancouver)
Crispy Bacon Pancakes
The finale in my pancake craze series! I promise tomorrow will be breakfast free!
As with the other pancakes these were also delicious! A sweet and salty combination enhanced by the side of caramelized apples! Apples and bacon are one of the best food unions. Brilliant brunch idea!
Jethro’s Fine Grub (Vancouver)
I think I’m on a total pancakes kick! Most of these flapjack eateries are featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives (just saying).
These are the biggest pancakes I’ve ever seen in my life and they come as a stack of two, so you better be prepared to eat!
The Rooster is an espresso and dark chocolate filled buttermilk pancake - absolutely oozing with deliciousness! I was only able to eat about a quarter which is probably why they have pizza boxes prepared for all the daring guests who venture into this diner!

Toasted “To Die For” Banana Bread with mascarpone and honey
I’m “dying” to try all the different creations Erin Ireland has out there and since banana bread is what I like to call a “perfect combination of heaven and food” I found myself dragging (but not really against her will) my friend to this cafe one morning.
This is my FAVOURITE kind of breakfast - one that includes nutritious qualities, but also contains all the attributes of a dessert!
(My friend wants me to make it known that the coffee was REALLY good too!)
Peanut Butter Lava Cake
As seen on Top Chef Canada, Trevor Bird (as per our suggestion… and constant nagging) has finally made his off-screen dessert debut!
He insists that this dessert is perfect for the peanut butter lover who would eat it by the spoonful (that’s ME!!)!
I don’t have anything negative to say, the cake and the creamy “lava” that flows from inside is a flawless PB heaven. The sorbet (raspberry on the night of my visit) and jam on the plate add to the nostalgia of growing up eating PB and J sandwiches.
Here’s to the adult PB lovers in all of us!
Pink Ribbon Bakery (Vancouver)
(L to R) Lemon Cake with Raspberry Frosting, Vanilla Cake and Frosting with Butterscotch Chips, Maple Bacon
As a cupcake fanatic I’m so sorry to report that it took me SO LONG to finally get out to this bakery!
The cupcakes here are completely devour-able! So good you can’t have JUST one bite (or JUST one cupcake)!
Every cupcake I’ve had here, both times I’ve gone, have been perfect! Moist cake, fantastic icing, supreme flavours that shine, AND the owner also makes gorgeous cakes with expert skill. This place is not to be passed up!
Earnest Ice Cream (Vancouver)
When it comes to my all time favourite foods, ice cream is #2 (right under cupcakes). When it comes to Earnest Ice Cream not only do I believe it’s some of the best I’ve ever had, but also something I’ve been craving for well over a month. Pure. Constant. Craving.
I’m one of those people who will “sneak” to the freezer right before bed and eat half a container of ice cream. So when I walked in to Harvest on the weekend you can rest assured that I definitely bought a jar of Earnest’s Salted Caramel and ate the whole thing in one go!
Next time I’ll need to stock up…
