Happy Pi Day, everyone! Today some Asian countries also celebrate White Valentine’s Day, so I want to take this opportunity to share the recipe of the pie pops I made for Mr. this Valentine’s Day. The filling is fig preserves with Nutella. I really like the combination of fig and hazelnut and chocolate, and the flavours turned out very well. Just have to watch the ratio of fig preserves to Nutella – fig flavour is a bit on the subtle side so Nutella could be overpowering if there’s too much of it.

Pie Crust Recipe

  • Make one portion of my simple pie crust recipe
  • You can make the dough ahead of time and store it in the fridge for 30 minutes or more. Just make sure to let it rest in room temperature for a bit so it’s soft enough to roll. Otherwise, the pie dough would be too cold to roll and the dough will crack.

In addition to Fliptop, we also discovered an interesting dessert truck at the Columbia StrEAT event. This truck sells one thing, an East European dessert called Slavic Roll, hence the truck name “Slavic Rolls”.

Slavic Rolls Truck


The slavic roll is a big hollow donut-like pastry cylinder. They make it by wrapping a long strip of dough around this cylindrical baking apparatus, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, then it is placed in a rotisserie oven to bake.

Making Slavic Rolls

For $5.99 you get one Slavic Roll and two types of filling. They smear a healthy serving of filling on the two ends of the cylinder, give it a nice squish and they are ready to be eaten. You can get one with three fillings for $6.99.

You all probably don’t know, but I actually live in the Tri-cities area. A girl in the suburb who dreams about living a life in the urban centre. haha. My posts usually focus on Vancouver but from time to time I might discover gems in my ‘hood. So the other day, Mr. and I checked out Crepe Delicious at Coquitlam Centre. I’ve walked by the store numerous times, but apparently they’ve been around for almost 2 years. No idea why it took me this long to give them a try!


The concept is pretty simple: crepes, savoury and sweet crepes. They also serve panini sandwiches but that only takes up a tiny corner of its menu.

We tried two savoury crepes and one sweet crepe. First up, the Garden Ham. It was pretty interesting because we saw how the staff cracked the egg on the crepe, so as she folded it, the cooked egg would be sandwiched between the crepe layers.

Frankly neither of the savoury crepes looks interesting on the outside, so let’s hope the filling tastes good.

It was not bad, but to me, I found it rather light. (more…)
