LaDurée strikes again. I can't ever go to NYC without stopping by the store, but when I saw this packaging collaboration with the New York City Ballet I got so excited. Two of my favorite things all together looking perfect.
While in New Orleans I picked up a box of Cafe Du Monde's famous Beignet mix.
It was not easy, it took several tries to get the beignets to puff the right way, the secret is hot hot hot oil. When you think its hot enough, wait and let it get even hotter! The oil also needs to be deep enough so the dough can really float around.
They turned out great!! Such a unique treat to make at home, can't wait to buy more mix!
Last week I went to The Bun Shop where the desserts are a big part of the experience. The on the left is the Custard Bun, which is a sweet version of the standard bun, filled with custard and topped with salted caramel sauce, sitting on popcorn. It was delicious, but I could do without the popcorn. On the right is their Fried Oreos with green tea ice cream. Its impossible to go wrong with oreos, they're amazing, but I would have paired them with vanilla ice cream.
I finally tried Milk Jar after hearing how amazing it was, and I am certainly into it. It still not my favorite cookie, but pretty awesome. Above is the Rocky Road, my favorite out of the ones I tried - super chocolatey!
This is the chocolate chip walnut which somewhat reminded me of the Levain cookie.
This was the pecan caramel chocolate cookie, super sweet and gooey!
It's been a while, but wanted to share these chocolate strawberries I made! I bought huge organic strawberries from Whole Foods and dipped them in 65% dark Cordillera chocolate, some are topped with toffee. Happy cheat day!!
