Dessert Bites

I had a chance to stop by the Dessert Bites booth at the SLC Winter Farmer’s Market last Saturday to try some of owner Travis Cloyd’s homemade hand crafted desserts.  Travis uses all natural ingredients, and locally sources products in his creations, and they are delicious! Of of the staple products of Dessert Bites is the macaron.  They had a few...

Fillings and Emulsions

SLC residents may be familiar with well-known bakeries Tulie, Gourmandise, or Les Madelines, but this may be the best SLC bakery that you have never heard of….until now of course.  Awesome food can stir up strong emotions and feelings in one’s self.  I’ve had many spiritual experiences involving food in this town.  I think that is what chef...

There are times in life that you walk by a place, and you have no choice but stopping there.  This was definitely one of those times.  Never mind the fact I was in the Bay Area on business and walking down San Francisco’s Pier 39, but when I saw the huge sign advertising “Mini Donuts”, I honestly can’t think of anything more enticing....

Well for those of you from the East coast, your day has finally arrived.  Rita’s Ice Custard Happiness has finally arrived to Utah.  I’ve only known about this location for about a week, and have already visited there about 5 times.  It may be just that I’m getting a little tired of these record high temperatures we have been experiencing...

There are some days when you wake up and think about a donut, and you get that thought in your mind that you need to have one, nothing is going to stop you.  This was one of those days for me, but it had to be a quality donut, and something that was on my way to work.  I didn’t have time to drift into Salt Lake to visit Banbury Cross.  Just a few days...

All due respect to some of my favorite bakeries in Salt Lake City, bakeries like Tulie, Glaus, Gourmandise, and Les Madelines, but Bake 360 might just be my new favorite.  Lately my wife has been a tougher food critic than myself, I think she forgets who the professional food eater is in the family.  But with Bake 360, the passion fruit creme koeing aman,...

  Where do you draw the line between calling something a muffin and calling it a cupcake?  My Favorite Muffin dances around that line at their Centerville, Ohio store.  They have tons of custom-built muffins along with bagels that come with creme cheese or a sandwich.   A cafe and breakfast menu complete this store. As you can see here there is a muffin...

  Young’s Dairy is the center of the dairy universe.  The ice cream there is second to none.  Nestled in Yellow Springs, a small town outside of Dayton, Young’s draws thousands of visitors from the surrounding areas of seekers of dairy delights and family fun.  You know how sometimes you will see a hometown business that claims to be...

My family and I spent the 103 degree Saturday between the zoo and the fountains at The Gateway Mall.  This week there has been record-breaking heat all across the West.  In Phoenix they had to cancel some flights because they planes are only certified to fly up to 118 degrees, and Phoenix hit 119!  In Vegas it got to 117 degrees, and Sin City had about 30 heat...
