Hi everyone, work schedule hasn't gotten any lighter with school to top it off. *sigh* I feel like I was falling apart for the past two weeks since my body couldn't deal with the lack of sleep and cold weather. I have been trying to blog regularly. I give props out to the ladies who do. I don't post much, unless I find a huge amount of time. But I think I can make it simpler to post interesting photo of the day of what new events are going on around me.
I finally went to Yogurt Mountain to give it a try since I was around that part of town running some errands. I heard so much hype about it from co-workers and friends. The atmosphere is very friendly and reminded me of TCBY but just green/purple layout. And of course "frozen yogurt!" They have so many flavors to die for. But I picked dulce de dulce (dulce de leche). I checked that some locations have Acai energy which is my absolutely favorite super fruit that I used to eat all the time when I lived in Florianopolis, BZ. I loved eating acai na tigela which consists of acai fruit slush with toasted granola cereal and sometimes they put banana.
So what's great about yogurt mountain, you get to weigh out how much you want and what toppings you want. It's just 45cents an ounce! So it's a great deal. It was broken down into 4 sections:
3. Cold Bar
They had a separate counter full of toppings ranging from : common cereals, candy bars, sprinkles, nuts, etc.
They also had fresh fruits like strawberries, bananas, blueberries, blackberries, etc. I found interesting was Mochi bites and yogurt bites that I tried. It didn't complement my dulce de leche flavor so I opted out.
I didn't capture a photo that was further down on the right side of the fresh fruit toppings. They also offered Ghirardelli Chocolate Sauce/Caramel syrups, hot fudge, whipped cream, any sauce you can think of was there!
This caught my eye. Chocolate Rocks!! These look like real rocks, but tastes so good like a chocolate chunk inside.
So if you have one in your state, I definitely recommend to check it out!
So lately I have a craving for french pastry particularly MACARONS!!! They look very colorful and yummy, I thought I try out an online recipe this weekend.

French pastry called Laudrée specializes in these macarons and other pastries. These photos are taken from the website. They just just made me drool over all of the treats since I have a sweet tooth. If I ever go visit Europe or Japan, I would love to try Laudrée. They have special cute boxes for your pastries when you make a big purchase or just want to give a simple gift to a friend.
Their pastries are to die for!

French mini cupcakes are also delicious looking. They have Philippe Andrieu as their known french pastry chef who put his creation to make a colorful and beautiful cupcake.
So until next time loves. I update my cooking experience of making my own batch of macarons! =) stay tuned.
