Posting this recipe has been on my to-do list for the past 2 weeks. Although our local rhubarb and strawberry season is close to being finished, I assure you the farmer’s markets I visited this past week were fully stocked with beautiful ripe rhubarb stalks and mountains of ruby red strawberries.
The other feature of this recipe is the quinoa pudding (courtesy of cannelle et vanille) which is a great recipe you can enjoy year round. Be creative and have fun with your toppings whether it’s fresh fruit, dried fruits, nuts, seeds or spices
Try out any of these combinations for topping your quinoa pudding:
~Raspberries, cream and chocolate shavings~
~Figs. honey and toasted pistachios~
~Apricots, almonds and toasted sesame seeds~
~Dates, coconut and hemp seeds~
Saturday morning, in the middle of thundershowers, Alexandra and I travelled to our favorite pâtisserie. Located at 4 Manor Road, just north of Yonge and Davisville, La Bamboche was just what we needed to lift our spirits.
Master pastry chef Stephen and two lovely young ladies behind the counter welcomed us and our iPhone cameras to a tasting of delectable treats. Our choice of two macarons would be the perfect pair to a creamy laté. French macarons -not to be confused with coconut macaroons- are almond meringue cookies. Crisp on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside, with flavored buttercream or chocolate ganache sandwiched in between. They make us swoon with each bite! If you’ve never tried a macaron, you must!

Monday afternoon, Alexandra and I will draw the name of one person who has subscribed or posted a comment to Lemon & Citron.
Thanks for your love and support.
