Bug Chocolates from Delysia Chocolatier

I am interested in all food and culture, and in some parts of the world, this includes insects. They are cheap to raise and/or easy to forage, high in protein, don’t require vast swaths of land for grazing, apparently, can be delicious. I’ve never found any restaurant in Atlanta or my travels that features bugs […]

SunO Dessert

Adam and I have gone to SunO for a number of years, probably since late 2008 or early 2009, when a friend introduced us to the original location in Duluth. We really took a shine to the place and would visit it whenever we were up that way – or we’d find a reason to […]

Pie Shop

Pie Shop is undergoing a period of transition at the time of this note (10/16), and the location reviewed below is closed. After Souper Jenny, my friends and I wound up over at Pie Shop, an unassuming little shop ’round back behind some buildings on Roswell Road. We popped in to check it out and […]

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams is an Ohio-based handmade ice cream shop chain started in 2002. They seem to have only 16 brick-and-mortar locations at the moment, which isn’t surprising since the brand is so young. They do ship nationwide, though. Currently there is only one store in Georgia, over on the Westside of Atlanta. After […]

High Road Craft Ice Cream

High Road Craft Ice Cream shares a space in the Sweet Auburn Curb Market with Sunday Gravy, a small shop selling uber meaty gravy over pasta, a mozzarella melt, or solo. I had a sample while I was in there, and I can say I’ll definitely drop by again to give the full meal a […]

Vanilla Frozen Yogurt With Balsamic Vinaigrette

I recently wined and dined with my dear friend Shannon. After a lovely meal, she whipped up this surprisingly tasty combination of vanilla frozen yogurt with balsamic vinaigrette on the fly – and with fresh basil from her CSA, Love Is Love! It was delicious. Ben and Jerry’s Vanilla frozen yogurt Balsamic vinaigrette Fresh basil. […]

Wedding Cake Ice Cream

No matter how well you wrap it up, cake only lasts for so long. This is a fun little idea we came up with over our honeymoon, using our Artisan stand mixer (wedding gift!), Artisan ice cream maker (wedding gift!) and leftover wedding cake. Delicious chocolate-cake-with-coffee-icing-flavored ice cream. We used the French Vanilla ice cream […]

Grandma’s Kolache Recipe

I know it’s corny and trite, but I really do love the holidays.  I know it’s even trite to ADMIT it’s trite, but I’m saying it anyway.  I won’t bother blathering on why it is I like year-end holidays more than others, but suffice it to say that the standard family/gift-giving/food/happiness reasons apply. But what’s […]

Thanksgiving Dessert Bonanza Recap

So, the Thanksgiving Dessert Bonanza was quite a success. I managed to churn out 3 desserts in 3 days (alright alright, technically 4…maybe I fail after all?) and didn’t completely screw up any of them (meaning, I didn’t have to re-bake any baking monstrosities).  I think I get a pat on the back. As evidenced […]
