Shi Shi for Cupcakes!

Confession, I have a new obsession!

My sisters and I discovered this fantastic little bakery, Shi Shi Desserts, that specializes in cupcakes.

This mother/daughter in law team whips up all kinds of pretty and delicious cakes in tones of wild flavors.

They offer their gourmet and original flavoured cupcakes in regular or mini sizes. Personally, I prefer the minis… that way I can guiltlessly try more different kinds!

Triple Vanilla, Cream Brulé, Strawberry Pie, Key Lime, Sicilian Lemon-Olive Oil, Peach-Lavender are a few examples of the ones that I have tried out and each one is more delicious than the next!

Everyone who loves dessert MUST check out this little shop… maybe you’ll develop a little obsession of your own!

Asilah by the sea

Right on the northern west coast of Morocco, Asilah has a Greek Island flare with it’s white houses and blue doors. On the other hand, it’s Spanish culinary influence quickly reminds you that it is so closely situated to Tanger and the southern tip of Spain. 

Asilah is a highly popular vacation spot amongst Moroccans as well as Europeans. The city’s population in the summer is 10 times what it is in the winter. Luckily for us, hardly any tourists had arrived yet, so we got the city all to ourselves!

I love a good Moroccan breakfast.

A small hidden market alley snuggled along the exterior wall of the old medina. 

The old medina is exceptionally clean and well maintained. 

I love henna. It’s a real treat for me to get some of this traditional ornamentation done… It’s also a nice temporary reminder of my Moroccan adventures in the weeks that follow my trip. 

The water is so blue and the sand so white. What a perfect vacation spot…. Especially when we’re the only people on the beach!
