Sip Wine Bar Restaurant Review – August 2020

I discovered this  Italian restaurant with my daughter one day the  during week and it was so good that I decided to bring my husband back for our dinner date, on the weekend!

So on a beautiful Saturday late afternoon, I slipped into my new red comfy red dress from Zara and headed off to Sip Wine Bar, in the Yonge & Eglinton area in Toronto.

The weather was nice and warm and we dined in and sat by the window; over looking the outdoor patio. We were the only patrons inside , and loved how intimate the atmosphere felt. Four more souls occupied the tables outside.

Beside us was the bar and the staff lingered quietly around it.

We ordered Calzone & Penne a la Vodka pasta.

My husband said that the crust was very light and delicious!

The pasta was tasty and the sauce just right.

This is the pizza my daughter and I had when we first tried this place, you need to order this!

It’s Quattro Formaggi Pizza and we added prosciutto as an extra topping.

We downed our meals with wine and sangria. Though to be honest, I’ve had better sangria.

The customer service was right on. They were pleasant and the food was served with very little waiting. The food is excellent and I will return to try other food on their menu!

After our meal, a few steps south is a movie theatre. Be sure to buy your tickets online and watch a movie, that’s what we did!

The area has many foodie places and stores to pop in and out of. Its a great area for a dinner date!

Here is a link where you can see the theatre and many foodie places you can choose from!

The Good Son Restaurant – Review Feb 7th 2020

So I have been suffering from Vertigo for 4 weeks when finally I felt better and headed out to Shop at Donmills. A spot in Toronto located at Donmills/Lawrence where there are many shops and restaurants to visit and enjoy. It’s one of my favorite places to go to because it has everything all in one location. It even has a VIP theatre and plenty of parking. You should visit here.

I have been meaning to visit this restaurant and finally had the chance to do so.

Upon arrival, the gentleman at the front greeted us with a charming smile and quickly told us to sit wherever we wanted to, as it wasn’t busy and it was earlier in the day.

This place was beautiful and with its stunning pop of color and light fixtures and an attractive bar and seats by the window, it totally attracted me on the spot. Of course, I picked the window seat.

Our server promptly appeared and our drink came within seconds.

The ambiance was light and unhurried, relaxed and chilled. It was nice to finally come out of hiding from being sick and this place was just what I needed to bring me back to life. Everything was gorgeous and just glam! I love this cute place!

I ordered the Mushroom Pappardelle Pasta and my daughter ordered the Prosciutto Pizza, both were very tasty, but in my opinion, my pasta rocked!

I really liked this place that I asked the host to make me a reservation for Valentine’s Day! I even picked my table. She took my information as I continued to eat my meal and that was that.

Simple.

Great customer service!

Coming back for Valentine’s.

Keto Cheddar Biscuits – September 2019

I haven’t baked in a thousand years because when I last baked, my Banana bread turned out hard as a rock!

I was so embarrassed, thank God the children were still small that they probably didn’t know better!

So I’ve started this Keto diet that my girlfriend Marisa swears by.

She started Keto earlier this year and lost friggin 20+ pounds!

I told her I love my baked goods and she said I still could enjoy them, with less carbs!

If that isn’t inspiration, I don’t know what it is!

She gave me this recipe and I stared at it for a while and as the fear in me started to take hold, I pushed it right far back where it came from and said to myself, I’m hell going to try it!

Preparation: 10 minutes

Baking:  14min

Recipe:

1 1/2 cup almond flour

1 1/2 cup shredded cheese

1/4 cup of cream cheese

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup melted butter

3 eggs

Instructions

Add all ingredients to one bowl

You can also add other spices

I added Cayenne Pepper!

Mix well and pour into muffin cups and bake at 400 degrees for 12-14 mins

Sprinkle with extra cheese and bake for another 2 minutes. 

Thats it!

Ps. Next time I will add bits of Jalapeno peppers and ham!

Enjoy!
