Best Dessert in Waterloo?!

Hey everyone! Today’s post is going to be (another) quick one because I spent a little too long making my breakfast latte + pancakes and had way to many nibbles of coconut flour cookie dough bars. I am planning to head to school early today even though I don’t have to be there until 1:30. I’m just not productive at home!

That being said, I’m not very productive at school either. :O Unfortunately, seems like the only time and place I can be productive is when I’m eating!

PS: Yesterday was my human anatomy midterm. I’m not good with memorization so I was busy last week learning all the muscles, nerves, and blood vessels. Now that the midterm is over, I can finally sit down and spend some time punching out (?) some blog posts! Yay!

A couple weeks ago, my friend Lily and I went to Red House in Uptown Waterloo. I went to Red House another time in November with a couple friends after the Biology midterm exam. I love this place so much! We received complementary toasted pitas with black bean hummus, cucumber, and watermelon radish.

Have you ever had black bean hummus before? It’s fantastic!

Lily ordered the tagliatelle with blue cheese cream, walnuts, cherry tomatoes, and mushrooms. I tried some of this and it was incredible! The rich and tangy blue cheese sauce was unlike any alfredo sauce I’ve tried before. The plates are so pretty, too!

Desserts were equally divine, as you can probably tell from the title! We ordered two and split them half-half.

I am looking forward to my next visit to Red House! 🙂 Their ingredients change seasonally so I’m curious as to what they will have for the middle of spring.

On another note, TWO MORE WEEKS until classes are over – in other words, in less than 15 days, my first year of university will have ended. Where did the time go? The days were long, but the months sure passed quickly.

Have a great Friday, guys!

    1. Hahaha I am glad I’m not the only one who doesn’t get much work done at home 😛 In fact, I got home three hours ago and since then have only swept the floor, did a couple yoga poses, and now I have chocolate-almond coconut flour muffins in the oven! I FaceTimed my sister until 0% battery :O Seems totally unproductive, but sometimes you need those relaxing evenings to recharge those mental batteries 🙂
      I know Grade 12 is a challenging year but YOU CAN DO IT! Just a couple months left! Also, Cassie, I am really curious about your university selection process and how everything has been going in terms of scholarships and post-secondary! Keep me posted please!

    1. Oh, it was scrumptious! I didn’t mention it in the post, but the ambiance is lovely, too, and we were lucky to go at a quiet time. 🙂
      Apple + brown sugar and caramel with toasted almonds on a cheesecake was something I’ve never though of, though I’m sure you’ve made something similar before 🙂

      1. That’s nice of you to say. I’ve made a Turtle cheesecake (melted caramel poured over pecans, then chocolate cheesecake mixture and baked) in the past which was very tasty. No apple though.
