We have found POG available in cans all over Hawaii. POG is a drink of Passion fruit juice, Orange juice and Guava juice. But only recently did I discover POG in Maui that was fresh squeezed. An incredible discovery.
We diligently tried all the best french macarons in Paris, but nothing compared to Laduree! Maybe it was the pastel colors, or the uber cute shop, or the matching ribbons and tissue paper with the Laduree insignia, but nobody does it like Laduree! (A list of our favorite tips for traveling with a camera is included at the end of this blog)
We found some of the most outstanding leaf colors in Montreal, and beautifully colored berries as well.
For Thanksgiving I made a pecan tart with a foolproof crust recipe from America’s Test Kitchen. It seriously is foolproof and the best crust ever. The secret is that it uses vodka. We had some Seagram’s Sweet Tea vodka left from a summer backyard party, and that was the perfect thing for a pecan tart.
