Levain Bakery

Finally, I went to the famous Levain Bakery @ 74th st. and Amsterdam Ave. I bought 5 cookies and when the lady handed the bag to me, I could not believe how heavy it was. It was probably about 5 lbs! All cookies were delish!!

My Own Version of Nestle Alpine White with Almonds

One of my favorite chocolate when I was a kid was Nestle Alpine White with Almond. Unfortunately, they don't make it anymore. Someone from a forum suggested to make it at home.

Since I am so craving for it, I bought a bag of almonds and Nestle white chocolate chips.

I melted the white chocolate chips in a double broiler.

Then I used a food processor for the almonds.

When the chocolate is fully melted add the almonds. Put it on a mold.

Oh my! After I ate it, it kinda hit the spot. So delicious!!

Sesame Place

Last weekend we went to Sesame Place at PA. It's Brianna's first time and third time for Miguel.

As soon as she entered the store, she was so amazed on how many elmo stuffs she saw.
Miguel having fun on the slide.....
We wanted Brianna to join us but she wasn't allowed. Also, the water so cold!
She didn't want to leave the truck.
Miguel played basketball and made enough shots to win.....
.....and this was his price but he gave to his sister. You can tell she's so happy.
Brianna waiting for Elmo Live show.
..and here they come.
She was dancing all the time.
This is what they offered for lunch.
While waiting for the parade, they were handing out tattoos for kids. Brianna got one =)
She was not afraid with all the characters except for Count! Don't know why...
