Surprise Birthday in Buffalo NY!

My husband and I spent the weekend in Buffalo NY for our friend’s surprise 30th birthday and his dad’s birthday as well! Both our friend Jack and his dad were surprised! The party was great and we all had a good time!

Saturday, we went to a nice restaurant for lunch called Woodcock Brothers Brewing Company. They make their own beer and serve food as well! I ordered a Niagara Lager for my beer. I also ordered a Magarita pizza and added pepperoni and mushrooms. It was the bomb!

Then we headed to Becker Farms for a little beer and cider tasting! The farm also had a petting zoo, live music, freshly made donuts, and a variety of beer and ciders to choose from!

I decided to get the Concord House Hard Cider. It almost tasted just like Welch’s Grape juice but had a little kick to it!

I have to say that this weekend was one of the best weekends that I’ve had in a long time! =)

Best French Toast I’ve Ever Had!

Back in July of 2015 I was asked to be a bridesmaid in my friend’s wedding. She is from Buffalo, NY so it was about a 7 hour drive from New York City.

This was taken after the wedding. It was such a nice day!

So the bride and all the bridesmaids spent time together with exploring the town, painting wine glasses, eating and drinking, shopping (of course!), and more eating and drinking!

There was this one restaurant that we went to for brunch called Cecelia’s Ristorante in Buffalo. Our brunch also came with bottomless mimosas so we were all feeling real good! I decided to order the Cannoli French Toast.

The dish consisted of Texas French toast, mascarpone cheese, candied pecans, topped with vanilla cinnamon syrup and powdered sugar!

The French toast was so soft but the crust had a slight crunch to it which was the perfect balance! The mascarpone cheese with the vanilla cinnamon syrup went very well together with the toast too! I was in heaven while eating this! I can just taste it as I’m writing about it!

And it’s so funny because I’m not a big fan of French toast on a regular basis (I prefer pancakes over toast). But this dish definitely made me want to try more French toast dishes in the future!
