So last night some friends and I went out to dinner at this place (no names) that had great food but broke my heart and expectations when it came to dessert (which is the best part of the meal in the first place). Everything we had was amazing until we ordered the Fried Snickers dessert. Now I know you are thinking ‘fried snickers, what could be wrong with that?’ and you would be correct…because in theory it is a brilliant idea. However, a dessert can’t be awesome in name only, its all about the execution. My friends and I were so excited about the potential of this dessert. In fact it was pretty much what sealed the deal for me in going to dinner at this place.

On Sunday morning I had the pleasure of having lunch with one of my dearest friends and fellow bakery foodie at Flour Bakery, my favorite bakery in Boston. It is tradition that when ever we go we have to have the oreos…because they are life changing. And if we are lucky, they have their peppermint oreos out.
Today I had the lovely experience of having a Hazelnut Rose at Tatte Bakery in Brookline. Saying that it was glorious is an understatement. Tatte’s makes these rolls that they call Roses because of how they look. They are little rolls of heaven. I have tried some of their other flavors before and they were really good but nothing compares to their hazelnut rose. The flavor resembles Nutella (which I believe tastes good on anything…seriously anything) and has toasted whole hazelnuts hidden within the rose. I highly recommend you go out and try a Hazelnut Rose at Tatte Bakery and pair it with their amazing homemade pear juice. They also have plenty of other yummy treats especially if you like nuts in your pastries. Enjoy!
For my birthday last year my roommate gave me one of the coolest gifts of all time…a giant cupcake cake mold! Which just goes to show the brilliancy that is Williams & Sonoma for selling such an awesome baking necessity. We decided to unveil the cupcake cake at our Superbowl party (mainly because we figured if we made it for a party then it would prevent us from eating the entire thing ourselves.)
