It's National Dessert Day so here are seven mouthwatering desserts I tried this year. They each left a lasting impression and I'm still thinking about how good they tasted. So, happy National Dessert Day and I hope you get a chance to sample something sweet today!
|A slice of cake from La Medusa in Seattle, called the Cassita cake from the bakery next door-the Columbia City Bakery. You can read the full post here about the cake and our dinner at La Medusa.|
|Also from Columbia City Bakery is the Frangipane Tart, a real treat with cherries and almonds and a perfectly flaky crust. You can read the post from my visit to the bakery here and see the other goodies I tried.|
|At Pop Bar in Vancouver, BC I devoured, I did share though, a peanut butter gelato on a stick. It was also dipped in chocolate and caramel corn pieces. I loved it and I want to go back to Canada and find me another one. See the full post here.|
|The Canadian Whiskey Bacon Doughnut at Cartems in Vancouver, BC was another pleasant surprise. Who would have thought bacon on a doughnut would be good? Duh, I knew, as I've had this combination many times before and love it. It just tastes so good and sometimes calories can go you know where. You can see my post from Cartems here.|
|Ah, Bouchon, you impressed me with your Salted Caramel Macaron, darn you. I'm still thinking about that thing and I live nowhere close to a Bouchon Bakey. While in Las Vegas, I visited the location inside the Venetian Hotel and enjoyed every last bite of my Macaron while I walked around. I didn't even share this time and I didn't even sit down. Twice as big as regular Macarons with the best Salted Caramel I've ever tasted, it's a shame I didn't buy more.

|Walking around Pike Place Market in Seattle and have an ice cream craving? Check out Shug's Soda Fountain and Ice Cream. My family shared this special banana split and it was the best one we'd ever had. Read more here if you want and then go check it out for yourself!|
|Located in Whistler, BC, Crepe Montange is the place for crepes. This dessert crepe with lemon curd was fantastic and had the perfect amount of tart and sweetness. For more about Crepe Montange and where else I ate in Whistler, click here.|
