Coppenhagen Bakery for Brownies

and Brasserie Cassis in Plainview for a Croque Madame Lunch. Google pointed me to Edible Long Island and the page for a walnut filled chocolate brownie.  The description sold me so off we go to Copenhagen Bakery to find out for ourselves. after an hour and a half […]

Graces Market

I hadn’t been in for years when we walked past yesterday and thought to go in just to grab some lettuce for dinner. Of course, since its a market and there were few other customers I took the opportunity to shop a bit. Stopping at the bakery counter […]

Woops

Last week when we had dinner with the kids at Fiorello was the first time I didn’t bring them a take home treat.. wouldn’t you know, Kate brought me something. Macarroons from Woops. I have to tell you they were my first ever macaroons and i like them, […]

Riverside Park

Half the fun is planning a day, never really knowing how it will turn out or what we will do.  We searched the web for happenings in the city, for museum exhibits, for a new place to go.  We had a few ideas.  MAD had a green book […]

Sant Ambroeus cafe

Croton-on-Hudson

Finding a supermarket where the aisles are clean, the produce is fresh, and the quality of selection is generous has been a problem for the past few months. Given this, I am on a search for a great market out of the city to ride to on the […]

Milano Market

UPDATE- After much searching , if I want food for a picnic dinner in bed, this is the best place to come. Yes, I love a good Italian market with plenty of cakes, prepared foods, salamis…. heaven.  Milano is heaven.  A quick bus ride up to 89th Street, […]

East Village for Dinner

Early in the planning stage for my day, while checking out OCD chocolate, the east village library branches and squish marshmallow I started looking around for dinner spots.  Being a fan of the mac and cheese, and Brad a fan of the cheese plate , I was drawn […]

Marshmallows

Squish Marshmallow, oh my.  This evening got a bit confused.  We were to dine on serendipity ice cream, then the discussion turned to what was for dinner after… perhaps Peter Llugar.  But that got set aside when there and every other steak house in town was fullup.  So.. […]
