Beautiful Streets of Montréal

Park Mont-Royal

8 Nov

These pictures are from the Park Mont-Royal, our last day before moving to Toronto. This park is a great escape to relax, and enjoy the Nature, or even jog or walk the dog. I’m going to post another thing about the houses in Montreal, another beauty. I miss Montreal.


La Cornetteria

3 Oct

Mont-Royal Street

If you happen to be in Montréal and you’re looking for an Italian vibe with a touch of sweetness, La Cornetteria, in Little Italy, is your destination.

With a variety of choices, in the beginning I was confused, but then I went for il Cornetto, il Cannoli, and il Cronetto (The new Godfather in town, a mixture between a donut and a croissant). I loved all of them, very delicious and yummii… I advise you to visit that cosy place.

Hello from Montréal

Here’s to a new beginning, fresh start and a different path.

A New Journey Is About To Begin..

31 Jul

A new journey is about to begin, a new destination, a new adventure. I don’t know what to feel or think. It’s a package of emotions and feelings. Happiness mixed with sadness, excitement embodied with anxiety, curiosity with fear. Nevertheless departure is part of life, we all have to face it and during the process endure it. I will embrace this new change, this new life, for it will elevate me and make me a better person, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. I have a new journey, a new challenge or better yet a new adventure. I believe this is my opportunity to do what I wanted to do, what i desired, to achieve what I’ve always dreamed of; or at least try. And I’ve got my husband beside me, a leaning side I can rest on and helping hand I can stretch my hand to. Canada here I come 🙂 …..


Summer Fruits

These summary days are the best now to enjoy nature in the village. Early wake-ups gives you a fresh mornings and you see the nature with a different sparkle and shine. A mounted feeling of energy and beaming glimpses. The reflection of the sun’s rays on the fruits urge me to just reach out, sntach it from the tree and devour it….I can gladly say mission accomplished.

Limoncello Tiramisu with Strawberry

9 May

One cake wasn’t enough for my husband’s birthday, I like to bake different kind of sweets and indulge ourselves with different flavors and colors and tastes. I’m used to do the classic coffee tiramisu and I wanted to use the Limoncello I got from Italy, so I made up this delicious colorful tiramisu.

Tiramisu al limoncello

– one pack lady fingers

– 250g mascarpone

– 120ml cream

– strawberries

– limoncello

Dilute some limoncello in water. Soak each lady finger in the limoncello for few seconds and place them in a medium glass dish. Whisk the cream and beat in the mascorpane until all corporated.Spread the cream mixture on the biscuits and then the sliced strawberries. Refrigerate over night if possible. And enjoy.
