A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

Tag Archives: dessert

There are a lot of food events out there, but not a many that let pastry chefs flex their culinary muscles. I had the opportunity earlier this year to attend the Sugar Rush event, but the Donut Rise and Rumble is the only other dessert event I have heard of. This is the fourth year […]

Holidays are about family and traditions. When I was a kid, we spent most of our holidays at my grandparents house in Newton. My grandmother was not a (good) cook, but there were a few special things that we looked forward to (and no, I’m not talking about that try colored jello mold with the […]

I can’t tell you how long 7Ate9 Bakery has been on my list. Far too long. So when Leah and I were in Somerville, I made it a point to stop in. What a cute little shop. The shop serves two sizes of cakes, a 9″ that feeds about 16-20 and a 4″ size that […]

What do you get for your dad for his birthday when he doesn’t want or need anything? You make the trek out to Medway (yeah, I had to look up where it is too) and pick him up some of his favorite muffins at the Muffin House Cafe. Sheldon used to have a little shop […]

I’ve been dying to try out Blackbird Doughnuts’ ice cream doughnut. One of these days I’ll get one! Until then, I settled for stopping in to their second location in Fenway and picking up some tasty treats for a hostess gift. We picked up both the raised doughnuts and the old fashioned cake donuts. What’s […]

Blackbird Doughnuts, the popular South End spot for artisan doughnuts has come to the Fenway. We stopped there on the way out of town on Labor Day Weekend to pick up a half dozen for the ride since we were able to get an earlier jump on the road (when does that ever happen?). Anything […]

I’m always looking for fun places to take my family. Last week we went back to Kimball Farm (the first time we just had ice cream). They have four locations, Jaffrey, NH, Carlisle, Lancaster and Westford. The Westford location of Kimball Farm is the only location that has activities like mini golf, a soaring eagle […]

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 […]
