Spot Dessert Bar

Albert and I have begun going to The Bao regularly now that we’ve discovered the perfect order, but we tend to fill up and don’t take advantage of the [non-related] cafe located just below it.  Spot Dessert Bar is an all-dessert paradise that serves up sweets with an Asian twist.  You’ve probably seen chocolate lava…

PSA: Stick With Me Sweets

Sometimes I think there’s a place you’ve just got to know about and my Public Service Announcements (PSAs) will give you the full skinny. The truffles at Stick With Me Sweets are perfect little domes with a gorgeous bit of color brushed across the top.  When you see them lined up next to each other,…

PSA: Myzel’s Chocolate

Sometimes I think there’s a place you’ve just got to know about and my Public Service Announcements (PSAs) will give you the full skinny. Myzel’s Chocolate is a tiny shop I’ve passed many times without giving it a second thought.  I assumed it was sort of a bodega for just sweets and, therefore, nothing special.  Turns…

Lemon Blueberry Cardamom Muffins

Since this past weekend was sandwiched between two power-packed weekends (Vegas the weekend prior, DC the weekend after), I wanted to lay low.  I also hear there’s a blizzard a-brewin’ so I wanted to do a bunch of cooking in case I find myself stuck in my apartment.  I knew one batch of muffins would…

I learned about Snowdays via Lucky Magazine editor Eva Chen’s instagram.…

OddFellows Ice Cream

Happy 4th of July!  This holiday is all about being outside in the heat of summer.  Rather than sit in the air conditioning, I like to cool down with some frozen treats.  If you’re the same, you should check out my new favorite scoop shop, OddFellows.  Their first shop opened a year ago in Williamsburg…

Dominique Ansel Bakery – Part II

I try to refrain from blogging about the same place twice, but when I can’t stop thinking about a restaurant you deserve to hear me sing its praises. Dominique Ansel Bakery is my favorite bakery in the City, maybe even my favorite bakery of all the bakeries there ever were. This is huge considering how…

Maison Keyser

Maison Keyser is a Parisian bakery that’s gone global.  The contents of the case are exactly like what you would expect from a traditional French patisserie.  I had to get a tarte because that’s my favorite and while in France I attempted to try every variety my local patisserie had to offer, which meant I…

Lulu’s

Lulu’s Chocolate Bar is a great downtown Savannah spot that always gathers a line.  For good reason.  The desserts are fabulous and going out for sweets and cocktails is a great way to end the night when you’re not quite ready to go home but don’t want to really go out.  My parents and I…
