NYC

Last September, my boyfriend and I went on a roadtrip from Montréal to New York City for Labour Day weekend.  I’ve travelled to NYC on 3 previous occasions, but this was his first visit.  This end-of-summer escapade was his birthday celebration, making this trip extra special.  Of course, a baker on vacation in NYC always has an ever-growing list of bakeries to visit, so I’m sharing mine with you:

Ovenly – treats for the roadtrip back home (salted chocolate chip cookie, salted peanut butter cookie, salted caramel brownie, truffle cookie).  I loved the brownie and peanut buuter cookie, so delicious!
