  • Martha’s Country Bakery in Forest Hills

    Recently, I had a wonderful visit to Forest Hills, Queens when I performed a Cool Japan Guide reading at their local Barnes & Noble.  What a great shop!

  • Cake Rant!

    I wrote this cake rant while on the plane to Spain. Sure, airplane food isn’t supposed to be the greatest, but why give me a dry cake? I would have preferred no cake at all! Of course once in Spain, the food was fab ^_^ Tweet

  • NY Cake Convention 2009

    The cutest cake at the convention, (in my humble opinion). Today I checked out the NY Cake Convention. This event is more for people aspiring to be bakers and professional cake decorators as opposed to eaters. So, no samples (at least none I could see). However there were many lovely cakes submitted for a competition […]

  • Oh! Nuts – an inside look at a kosher candy store!

    For those who observe Passover, kosher for Passover candy can bring a lot of fond memories. Raspberry jelly rings, macaroons, fruit slices, that Barton’s chocolate you were encouraged to sell to your elders every year (just like girl scout cookies!).
