Hi all. How I've missed all you lovely readers. The last few weeks have been amazingly busy which is great, but I feel terrible for neglecting you. Yesterday was my 30th birthday. I had an excellent day filled with good food and even better company. As you may or may not know I've had to cut out pretty much all my favorite foods, which has obviously been extremely difficult for a Tomato Snob like myself. Since I have been so good and disciplined lately I decided that for this milestone birthday it would be ok to indulge slightly. I enjoyed 1/3 of a lemon cupcake that was gifted to my by the lovely lady at Cake Opera Co. as well as 4 of their unbelievable macaron. Definitely a must try if you live in Toronto. I've decided that in honor of my dietary changes and awesome display of will power over the past few months today's blog will be an ode to all the foods I've loved. Notice a pattern? Bread, cheese, butter, sugar, pasta, cream, flour yum. Have any of you ever had to cut out a food or ingredient you love?
