Gelato Messina

At the new Downtown Summerlin shopping plaza, fantastic shops and restaurants are opening up including a new gelato eatery named Gelato Messina.  What stands out about this gelato shop is that this is their first US location (they are based in Australia) and they make their gelato from scratch using only the finest ingredients.  I guarantee that if you stop by and sample their gelato, your eyes will POP in amazement like mines did!


Gelato Messina adorns their interior with bright colors and loud artwork, reflective of their passion for making vibrant and creative flavors of gelato


There's coffee, lattes, and more drinks to accompany the desserts

Cremino - Salted caramel gelato and crushed amaretti biscuits with soft meringue and Nutella

Inside the Cremino - all the flavors layered and folded throughout this decadent dessert :) Delish!

Peanut Butter & Jelly "Sandwich" - Brioche gelato, peanut butter mousse, and blackberry jelly

All the flavors are individually strong, but presents a nice combination when all three layers are eaten together

Head Chef Donato Toce explains to us how the gelato are made in-house and how they use their creations to make various types of gelato cakes

Black Forest Gelato Cake - Choc fondant gelato, kirsch semi freddo with amarena cherries, a thin layer of chocolate sponge, a chocolate crackle disc, dark chocolate spray finish with a cherry sorbet dome enclosed in a crisp dark chocolate top

The sorbet gelato section includes flavors like Salted Coconut & Mango Salsa, Blood Orange, and Passionfruit
All sorbet gelatos are dairy free and vegan friendly

Approximately 40 different gelato flavors are available every day at Gelato Messina


5 special gelato flavors, some of which are modeled after pop-culture icons, are made and changed up on a weekly basis

The Heisenberg - Blueberry yogurt gelato with crystallized violets (get it, Breaking Bad fans?!)

Dulce De Leche - An Argentinean caramel made by reducing milk until it becomes a sweet jam

Gelato in a can - take some gelato to go!

Stockholm Trip '17

Over a month ago, my husband and I embarked on our first trip to Europe!!! We were there for a couple weeks and spent our time exploring the capital cities of Norway, Denmark, and Sweden.  The two things I found most captivating was the art, especially the architecture, and the food!  Our trip started in Oslo, Norway and Copenhagen, Denmark (check out the links at the end of the post for more details) and ended our Euro trip in Stockholm, Sweden: AB CafĂ© Never in my whole life did I eat pastries and drink coffee every morning until I arrived in Europe! A lot of pastries I had were hearty which left me wanting to have at least one daily.  In the neighborhood near where we were staying at was  AB CafĂ© .  This is a small, cozy cafe where you can have a small bite to eat and drink before you start your day.  Pictured below is their Key Lime Sandwich, latte, and a bullar (sweet bun).  It was a nice fika !

Birthday Month!

For my 30th birthday, I decided to celebrate it for the entire month of November.   Since I've reached this milestone in my life, why not spread out the celebration?  Here are highlights of my birthday month: Cake, Cake, Cake My coworker got me this lovely Guava Cake from Andrea's World of Cakes , thank you Fran! Hawaii Trip '16 My family and I were in Hawaii for a bit.  Being there for my birthday was not the primary reason though :p We had this 'ono (delicious) and authentic Hawaiian meal from Waiahole Poi Factory : Don't forget the chili water and Shoyu! There's been many poke bowl shops poppin' up in Vegas.  But none yet that I've been to can beat the OG poke bowls from Hawaii!  Pictured here are poke bowls with simply marinated raw fish and rice.  We also had some sashimi and musubis from Foodland Farms : Li Hing Mui Frost from Frostcity :                   These huge Banana Mac Nut Pancakes with Coco
