A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

Located just past the Wayside Inn, AJ Cakes is a new (ish) bakery located just over the line in Marlborough. While the majority of Ashley Miller’s business is in custom cakes and pastries, they do have a great pastry case that is filled with lots of goodies. Selections change often, but you can usually find […]

I barely passed geometry in grade school, but I can certainly get behind Pi Day. Each year, Pi Day is on 3/14 – get it? So I did some research to tell you where you can buy all the best pies to celebrate the day. I mean, we all have to do our part right? […]

Leah introduced me to Praliné a while back, and I almost wished she hadn’t. The French bakery puts out some of the most amazing desserts I’ve had. It’s a good thing that it isn’t closer to me, otherwise I might be 50 pounds heavier and broke. The lemon tart is sweet and tart, a fresh clean […]

This summer Lady M Cake Boutique opened up on Newbury Street. This is the first Boston location for the brand, which has other outposts in New York, Los Angeles, Charlotte, Singapore and Hong Kong. The minimalist storefront has full cakes on display and you can order slices or full cakes from the window in the […]

This past weekend I braved the snowmageddon weather to head over to Wilson Farm to check out their Chocolate Fest. That’s right, will travel for chocolate. There were a bunch of brands sampling on Saturday, including some goodies from Wilson Farm’s own kitchen (oh but that chocolate mousse!). Don’t worry mom, I glanced at the […]

This year I want to focus some posts on women run companies. One #ladyboss who is killing it is Malden native, Tamy, owner of Maca. Not only does she make these labor intensive macarons, but she also has a 9-5 job! By day she is a project manager at a financial company and then she makes […]

If you’re going with heart shaped boxes of chocolates for Valentine’s Day this year, you certainly can’t go wrong with one from Phillips. They are Boston’s oldest chocolatiers, founded in 1925, and every chocolate is handcrafted. Two choices I personally love are the sea salt caramel assortment and the turtle assortment. I’m pretty fussy about […]

Just before the holidays, I stopped over to the Boston Public Market to check out Whipped Urban Cupcake Co. and their delicious bite sized cupcakes. The only bad part about the cupcakes was that they were gone in two (ok one) bites. Left: Nuttin Betta (from the Bougie collection), a dark chocolate cupcake with rich […]

Who does’t love cream puffs? We headed over to Chinatown to pick up a few from Beard Papa’s. The tiny shop has a few seats at the window, but most people here are grabbing them to go. Mine by the way, barely make it out of the door 😉 You can choose which shell you’d […]
