I know you’ve all been tossing coins into fountains and whispering to first-stars-you-see-tonight since March 2018, so let me thank you. It may have taken a full 5 years of hopes and prayers but I finally made it to The Salty Donut in Miami and proceeded as such: What do we have here?? Guava cheese, ube pina colada, strawberry shortcake, white chocolate tres leches, chocolate hazelnut, and cookie butter cake. Carefully hand-paraded around town in the baking sun to really mimic the experience of “fresh out of the fryer.” Let’s talk utensils. I used a fork and knife to divvy these up, but real ..read more

With a name like Sconza, it has to be good.

We may or may not be connected by blood, but we are certainly connected by our love of candy! While Sconza Chocolates is based in Oakdale, CA, they also have a small secondary outpost in my kitchen cabinet. Here, let me put on my Sconza visor and put down my Sconza coffee mug so I can give you a proper tour. Of course we are stocked with the basics: milk chocolate caramels, dark chocolate caramels, vanilla sea salt caramels, and Jordan almonds. But have you tried the dark chocolate blood orange caramels yet?? My sophistication level went up 5% with just one bite of these slightly bitter morse ..read more

Play back surveillance footage of the Glendale Americana parking garage circa 2009-2015 and you’ll have to scroll past hours of me stuffing cream puffs into my mouth before you’ll catch a glimpse of any perp. Ah youth, when I made the front seat of my car my dining room instead of ordering dessertS and eating them all indoors at a proper table like a proper gentlelady. But Beard Papa’s is just that good – it doesn’t make it out of the car. Always freshly baked with customizable cream piped on the spot, it is rare that any portion of a puff makes it home. How could it even get any better? I’ll ..read more

Loaf and lounge all you want, but do not sleep on this new lil cafe in Avondale. I know Loaf Lounge all about the bread (and so am I: the marbled rye and caramelized onion are chef’s kiss), but the not-bread desserts are oooooh so good and worth seeking out. Exhibit A: THE chocolate cake – made instantly famous thanks to The Bear. This is like if Portillo’s cake was denser, richer, less cloyingly sweet….basically less of an “add mayo to box mix” cake and more of a “let’s make the most legit chocolate cake possible” cake. I would wake up early from a nap to eat this cake. Exhibit B: the CHOCOL ..read more

Fulton market. Let’s talk. What a clusterfuck shit show. Not to sound too grandma, BUT back in MY day it was a bunch of hot dog product warehouse buildings just beginning to host the occasional edgy art opening where it was still sketch to walk back to your car after load out. Now it’s a disorienting 24/7 Uber surge construction zone with a Disneyesque façade of industrial chic. I’m not charmed. Be that as it may, let me let you in on a secret/not so secret respite smack in the middle of all this gourmetathleisurewearcorporate hood. Good Ambler. High ceilings, room to breathe, comfy seating ..read more

Mango mango everything

“Ok, ok, let me pitch you a surefire, lucrative business plan: Maybe let’s open a tiny cafe tucked away on the second floor of a hectic outdoor mall area and we’ll only serve desserts made with mango and also some drinks. We will be rolling in the dough as long as customers can find us and also they happen to like mango!” Sounds brilliant. Open 30 locations. Take all my money. What??! And yet, that is exactly what Mango Mango Dessert did, and it worked, and it was comfortably crowded with mango lovers, and I gave them all my money ($32.18). To be fair, they DO have some menu items without man ..read more

Choco Taco: never fear, dessertoasis is here!!

HEADLINE: CHOCO TACO IS DISCONTINUED What am I expected to get from the ice cream man now? A weeping zombie Sponge Bob? A dreamsicle AKA nightmaresicle? We can only hope that Klondike is pulling some Twinkies-circa-2013 bullshit here, but alas one cannot be too careful or carefree when it comes to something this serious. The future may be uncertain, and a “Historic Choco Taco” may currently be selling on eBay for $6,942, but fear not because (Chicago at least) I got you. First option: a taco of gargantuan proportions from Lonesome Rose. Horchata soft serve, peanut pretzel crumble, chocolate d ..read more

National Donut Day, the Old Fashioned way

The following statements were made by actual people, not paid actors: “This is the best chocolate doughdough I’ve ever had in my whole entire life.” “This is the best apple fritter I’ve had.” Facts. Both facts. Old Fashioned Doughnuts’ apple fritter rivals that of Randy’s, and I witnessed the raised donut getting fried, getting glazed, getting put into my box. It may have truly been the freshest donut I’ve ever eaten! Rounding out our assortment was a custard filled, sugar dusted, heavenly puff. We only got one because there was only one left to be gotten, and, well, that makes sense ..read more
