Summer Cottage Social at the Ritz-Carlton DEQ Patio

There’s no other way to say this. It’s crazy insane hot outside. It’s hitting 33 degrees almost every day this week. The nice thing about the hot weather, is that it’s a great excuse to hang out on a patio under a giant umbrella, sipping a cool drink. Enter the DEQ Terrace and Lounge at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. I went to the launch of their new summer menu, and to welcome their new executive chef.

Afternoon Tea at Ladurée Yorkdale

 

I was beyond thrilled when Ladurée opened up at Yorkdale mall. I’ve been a huge fan of Laduree ever since I went to their first patisserie in Paris. I knew I had to visit to try their afternoon tea.

When you step inside, you can’t miss their world famous macarons stacked in colourful hues. The famed macarons are flown in from Switzerland. There are 12 flavours of macarons ($3.50 each) available in store, and they sell out quickly. The macarons come in Pistachio, Chocolate Orange, Coffee, Rose Petal, Salted Caramel, Vanilla, Lemon, Orange Blossom, Ice Mint, Raspberry and Hazelnut. In Canada, we have a special maple syrup macaron.  (more…)

[ Weekend Getaway ] London, Ontario with Turo

Have you ever wished that you could drive your dream car for more than just a test drive? There’s an app for that. Turo is like Airbnb but for cars! Car owners can rent out their vehicles to make some extra cash when they aren’t being used. Car fanatics, or someone looking for an alternative to renting a car through a big box service, can choose their make and model and book with a swipe. Before you can use the app, you need to sign up with a valid driver’s license. After that, we were able to search for the make and model of the car we wanted. Each car/owner also has reviews, so you can make sure previous renters have had a good experience. After selecting the car you want to rent and making the payment through the app pickup details are be provided. (more…)

Will you accept this…. red and white wine?

I will let you know something about me. I have been a huge fan of the Bachelor franchise since Jake Pavelka’s season in 2010. Such a huge fan that I’ve never missed any episode of The Bachelor or Bachelorette both US and Canadian versions since Jake’s seasons including all the spin-off shows. So when I was offered the opportunity to review the new Bachelor Wines I didn’t hesitate, as I’m fan of the show and love trying out new wines.

The new Canadian-based Bachelor Wines feature two varietals: The Final Rose – a bold Cabernet Sauvignon and One on One – a spirited Pinot Grigio. (more…)

Dinner in a Flash with Rose’s Family Meals

I love to cook, but I have to be in the right mood for it. This doesn’t really bode well when food needs to be put on the table daily. When I don’t feel like cooking, I find myself eating out or ordering in a lot. It can be delicious, but it’s definitely not good for you.

Too busy to cook after a long day at work, but still craving a gourmet meal? Rose Reisman’s Family Meals have you covered. These healthy and delicious meals arrive to your door. All you need to do is heat and then eat! Every week, there are new meals available to choose from. (more…)
