We decided to get out of the city for a bit, and headed to a restaurant tucked away in the mountains. Great food–even better scenery!
Then I got a hankering to make almond chocolate pear muffins. Best muffins ever–I think because they’re made with almond flour instead of regular flour. They were so moist, crumbly, and delicious, I think I’ll use this recipe in future as a base for any muffins I make.
Meanwhile Cy discovered the joys of pumpkin….Just all kinds of YUM! this week.

We went shopping the other day and stumbled across a display of dishes that immediately begged to be taken home with me. I’m pretty sure they were actually calling my name. Of course, I obliged because how can one say no to such inducement?
So I baked little kale and goat cheese tarts for the sole purpose of wanting to photograph the dishes.
Well, that and I needed breakfast. But mostly for the plates.

This weekend, friends of ours introduced us to a fantastic French bakery hidden away in the woods, amidst pond and palm fronds. It’s only open on Saturdays and the key to this place is to show up at 9 a.m. prompt because by 9:20 everything is gone.
There were almond croissants, and chocolate croissants, and plain ones, if that’s your cup of tea. Danishes and tarts, and artisan breads of all kinds.
I would share a picture of the almond chocolate danish I
ate devoured, but I gobbled it up far too quickly to snap a shot. I may or may not have had chocolate smeared on my cheek in my haste.
Needless to say, we’ll be going back for more!

It’s been a nasty smoky season up here in Chiang Mai…so we escaped!! To a tropical island in the Gulf of Thailand, where we walked on the beach
played in the pool
and ate lots of good food.
Best way to escape the smoke ever!

My boy is 6 months old! He makes good friends with the waitstaff and chef.
This week, we discovered a new breakfast joint called The Larder Cafe. It would be an understatement to say we plan to go there again.
My breakfast started with a latte, and muesli topped with yogurt, passion fruit, kiwi, figs, strawberries, dragon fruit, and watermelon.
Then it finished with this:
Figs, ricotta, and a balsamic reduction over crostini, sprinkled with pistachios and walnuts.
Oh. My. God. I wanted to order three.
It was one of those meals that you think about long after it’s over.

We took a trip to Chiang Dao this weekend. It’s a pretty little mountain side town, where we went last year for Toby’s birthday when I was 7 months pregnant. It was fun to go back with our (almost) 6 month old boy!
