i was in the mood to try some new dishes today, and i had heard such good things about the avocado toast served at café gitane in nyc, so i did a quick trip to provigo and got my supplies. i also figured that i would want to eat something sweet after, so i got the ingredients to make these russian tea cakes (recipe here). here are the results!
listening to: north- phoenix

sea salt & rosemary focaccia topped with avocado, lemon, olive oil and red chili flakes

russian tea cakes with toasted pecans and coated with cinnamon icing sugar

and here's a picture of something i made last week:

steamed pork dumplings topped with spicy peanut butter sauce and green onions


  1. so yummy in my tummy!

  2. i am very proud of my baby. bring some over to 3699. actually don't. i just ate a chocolate bar.

  3. are those the pre-made dumplings that you just have to put in boiling water? they are dee-lish!

  4. i want some, but not the pork dumplings, cus i dont eat pork.

  5. Hello Nicole!

    I am a big fan of piece of Pickel blog. I noticed that you are currently based in Montreal, Canada. I will be visiting this location next week, and was wondering if you would allow me to purchase a glass of wine for you and provide you with some stimulating conversation regarding the topic of fashion. Inform me of your adress, and I can pick you up at seven ocklock next Friday evening. I will suggest that you dress in a semi-formal fashion, as I intend to bring you to a location that this would be appropriate for.
