Kouign-amann

It’s a good thing that I finally tried my first Kouign-amann so late in our trip. Because had I tried them on, say, day 1 it would have been game over.

L’as du Fallafel

A Paris institution, and one that I make a trip to at least once every visit to Paris. Cheap and delicious. Don’t forget to ask for it spicy! – Marla

Time Stands Still

Looking at my desk calendar tells me that Saturday, the day we leave for France, is a short 3 days away. My mind tells me otherwise, as time seems to be standing still.

Because it’s comfort food, unfortunately it means that I can’t enjoy Burgoo too frequently. But when I do, it’s always a memorable treat. Here’s what the boyfriend and I ordered […]

Platform 7

The boyfriend and I enjoyed a walk on a particularly drizzly afternoon about a month ago. Upon our return to the car, I decided I wanted a nice cup of hot chocolate to warm up (as you do). We were in an area I’m not very familiar with, so I turned to my trusty phone […]
