I love milkshakes recently opened in the Natick Mall. The kiosk is located in the newish part of the mall near the Apple store. I was excited about the concept – over the top milkshakes are all the rage these days – I mean, have you seen Black Tap’s photos? They have a lot of […]

Sunday night I had my favorite kind of tasting menu…a 5 course dessert tasting! I was lucky enough to be a guest at Sugar Rush 2017, the creation of Jaime Schick – the talented pastry chef that has worked at places like No. 9 Park and Deuxave. She is in her fifth year of running […]

Allston and Brighton are becoming quite the new hot spots for restaurants these days. Beard Papa’s is just one of the new-ish restaurants in the neighborhood. This chain boasts that they have the world’s best cream puff. Let me tell you, they’re pretty darn good. This location has a good amount of seating – so […]

This week is all about sweets! Head over to Cutty’s in Brookline on Fridays and Saturdays (starting at 8ish) to grab some delicious treats from Breadboard Bakery. Leah and I had been dying to try the cinnaknots which were good, they weren’t too sweet! Daisy Chow is the talent behind Breadboard Bakery, who started off […]

It’s ice cream season, are you ready? I recently headed over to Honeycomb Creamery to taste it for myself. I had really been dying to try the rosé gummy bears, but they are seasonal, so I had lime instead. Flavors available that day included: burnt vanilla bean, cinnamon dulce de leche, honey lavender, brown butter […]

Remember when you used to go to birthday parties and you’d get a Hoodsie cup for dessert? I always ate the vanilla side first and then reluctantly ate the chocolate. And those wooden ‘spoons’? Yeah. Well, good news, there’s some new players in town that will make you say Hoodsie who? Ok, so maybe still […]

Let’s be honest, 1 year olds don’t need party favors, but it is nice to have guests leave a party with a little something. La Doce is Boston’s first online boutique to offer Brazilian birgadeiros. They say they are a cross between a truffle and a caramel – these confections just melt in your mouth! […]

Located in Cambridge, a short walk from the Davis Square T station, is Spindler Confections, a local artisan candy shop. They have a nice selection of chocolates, salted caramels, nut caramels, pate de fruits and brittles. Did you know that they have classes? Class 1 is called Chocolate! Chocolate! Chocolate! and you learn the basics of […]

Just when I move out of the neighborhood, new restaurants start popping up. Union Square Donuts moved into the old Wulf’s fish market on Harvard Street. Great to have another option in the ‘hood that is open early, perfect for families with young children. There is a small seating area that was full when I […]

Our plan: meet up at Hi Rise Bread Company on Mass. Ave and go out for ice cream afterwards. I had been wanting to try Honeycomb Creamery for so long, and get my hands on those rose gummy bears I had been seeing all over Instagram. What really happened: we showed up to Hi Rise, my […]
