A walk through Yorkville

A few weeks ago, the weather finally warmed up in Toronto, and the sun came out! So, we decided to go for a long walk through a really nice area of the city and the university campus too.... I love looking at the old buildings!  We also stopped at a little cafe/european grocery store for a coffee and snack :)

Baked Churros with Nutella dipping sauce

I made homemade churros today!  Churros are spanish doughnut-like pastries, and are traditionally fried and made by street vendors as fast food snacks, or served for breakfast in cafes... but since fried food doesn't agree with me, I baked them, coated them with cinammon sugar and served them with Nutella sauce in my new French Fry diner-style stand.  

They were delicious, and I definitely had too many of them!   The texture was perfect too, crunch on the outside and soft in the middle, but I think I would make them thinner next time cos I prefer them to be a little more crunchy.
