You Ask; We Deliver (Sorta)

We’re all about American-style desserts when we aren’t about British tea desserts. Brownies make me think of home and a scratchy Girl Scout uniform I kind of hated.

Lots of folks have asked for our recipe. This was the original inspiration though we’ve tweaked it over the years to make it our own. I suggest you do the same.

Macarons Are Hard

Someday I will stop saying y’all when I’m angry and I will perfect macarons. Meanwhile, I will continue to get my fix at Lolita across the river from our shop.

IMG_0326I did find a great resource from David Lebovitz. I really appreciate someone else doing all that research so I don’t have to. Should I tackle the white chocolate chai or raspberry matcha ones I’ve been dreaming about first?

If you haven’t been by the shop lately, our new baker, Maja, has been killing it on the brownie front. Tomorrow we’re doing dark chocolate with a peanut butter swirl. Yes, they are very American but they’ll pair nicely with the Ramones cover band. They’ll take the corner stage at 21:00.
