tiramisu from one lucky duck.

last weekend my good friend/roommate theresa had her parents visit,and they took us out to lunch.and we went to one lucky duck. the pure food and wine takeaway/cafe.
since moving to nyc,i've been salivating over picture's from erica on flickr and her blog of amazing looking raw desserts,especially tiramisu,and have been DYING to try it,but haven't financially been able to,given that a slice of tiramisu is $15,a milkshake $27(whaaaat?!),etc.but i guess everything came together and they had no problem taking us out(geeze now i really feel like the baked gods weren't enough of a thank you...)
so. i finally got to try it.and the desserts were amazing.especially the mallomar.the "marshamallow" was soooo creamy,and light,and fluffy and amazing.better than the moonpie,because there was less chocolate and more vanilla-ness.and the tiramisu was excellent,though super dense.again,i loved the creme the most.the cookie/sponge cake/what-have you layer was really really dense and hard to eat a lot of at once,but again,it was soo good.and the caramel in the caramel bar was fantastic.i wasn't crazy about the bar/cookie base,it was a pretty dry and crumbly,but nonetheless.oh,and the 'almond butter cup' ice cream milkshake was out of this world.super vanilla-y,and smooth,and just perfect,really.
oh,and lunch was great too,best caesar salad i've had in a long time,better than candle 79 or peacefood,both of which i said was the best.theresa and her parents all loved it,too,and none of them are vegan.

it was all kind of was seeing kev and linds.
and,just like last time they visited,i baked for them....

no frills homemade banana bread.
classic banana bread.
okay,so this one wasn't so much for them,but i had made the cookies and bars and then thought i hadn't done enough,so at 1:30am i baked this and fell asleep after checking on it and thinking it needed just 10 more minutes.i woke up at 4:30am,freaked out and thought the apartment was burning,and then will told me that it smelled done and he took it was awesome.

pb&j bars with pb&a trailmix
peanut butter and jelly bars.
super gooey.
and into the batter i added some

for extra crunch and sweet n saltiness.

and more of those oatmeal-coconut-chocolate chip-pecan-raisin/dried cherry cookies.
because t wasn't here when i made them and i wouldn't shut up about how good they were and how everyone loved them.
and yeah,ariela got some more.

so some cookies,bars,and banana bread ain't bad,amirtie?s'mon,i did have to start school that week,too...

oh,and i went to lula's last week,too and tried one of these:
tatse sensation.
new black and white marshmallows from sweet and sara.
a serious taste sensation.
the thin chocolate on the chewy fluffy marshmallow with the little crunch when you bite into it is crazy.kinna like a moon pie!har.

black and white sundae.
aesthetically pleasing and correct sundae.cookies n cream,chocolate and cake batter twist softserve,black and white marshmallows,whipped cream,chocolate sauce,chocolate and vanilla creme cookies.

the biggest and best nyc whole foods(tribeca) had a gelato thing upstairs and makes their own vegan gelato in house,and always has one flavour.recently i had rocky road,which was really good,with big chunks of marshmallows and almonds in it.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of hardship when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Nowadays, I feel good, I begin take up real income.
It gets down to select a proper companion who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the income with me.

You may get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them: [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]
