Desserts in Brazil

As you know, David has a big “sweet tooth” He LOVES his sweets. Especially in the evening with a cup of tea. He needs ” crumpets” as he calls them. Must be an age thing…haha 🙂

He enjoys his regular evening walk to the bakery BUT choices are limited! Yes there are lots of cakes and pastries, but really they are not sweet, or they too sweet or they are not what we have in Canada. Homemade cookies are non existent and I don’t bake much here because I find the flour and my oven different and I am not always pleased with the results. Once and awhile I will surprise him with cookies but most of the time he is left with store bought cookies.


There are some desserts that look REALLY good but are not that great…

There are two desserts in Brazil that rate #1 on our list and we will miss them when we leave.

David’s #1~ Mini Apple Pie

Anna’s #1~ Lime Pie (the ones at the Hippie Market in Rio are BEST)

Ok, NOW I am hungry! I sure hope we can get some good desserts in China!

And speaking of sweets…my sweetie who LOVES to try things and HAD to try some hard Brazilian treats when we were in Tiradentes, broke one of his crowns he had done here in Brazil. So…it’s back to the dentist this week to try and get that fixed before we leave.

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
