I think it should be a pre-requisite for every building within a 2 block radius of 9th Avenue to house a gym, because living so close to sooo many restaurants is definitely not doing my “love fat” (back fat + love handle combo word courtesy of one of my fave bloggers, The Pioneer Woman) any good.
I love the internets. Ever since we moved here, tons of people on twitter have been giving us tips and telling us all the awesome places to try. I would have never found this Amy’s Bread had Harry Covair (THANK YOU!) not told me about it. My love fat’s not too happy, but I am. Hehe.
The first time I stopped in, I walked past it and had to check the address, so keep your eyes open, people! You won’t want to miss this place!
I actually went twice.
Left to right:
Cranberry cream scone. Moist, buttery and just the right amount of tang from the cranberries. I’m usually not a fan of scones, but these have become my new faves. I’m craving one right now. As I sit here and think about it.
Blueberry muffin. Simple enough, but with a nice crust on top. Love that about muffin tops. Hate when muffin tops give you muffin tops, though. Hehehe.
The second time, I tried three different things. After reading the yelp reviews, had to try this:
Coconut Dream bar. HOLY sweetness. If I had already found a dentist, he’d probably throw his hands in the air in frustration when he saw this. Chocolate chips, graham crust, coconut and what apperas to be epic amounts of sweetened condensed milk. We seriously took almost the whole week to eat this. One bite after dinner type deals, but So. Great.
Sticky Bun. Labeled “the best in New York City”, these fell a bit short for me. Okay, honestly speaking this was my very FIRST sticky bun. Ever. It was a little too chewy for my liking, especially since I was expeciting super soft moist bread (expectations were generated by appearance! haha). Maybe that’s what sticky buns are supposed to be like. *shrug* I’ll have to try them elsewhere and get back to you.
Chocolate Chip Cookie. Normal, nothing out of the ordinary. I actually got this because Ry was telling me the night before that he was craving a cookie. And I didn’t want to bake any. Hahaha. This one fell short for him. He said it tasted “floury”. Me? I thought it was okay. Not bad, not amaaaaazing, but okay.
Regardless of those last two, I will definitely be back here, especially since it’s so close! Will update when I try new things. I heard their Irish soda bread is awesome, but I’ve never had that before, either. Makes me nervous. Soda bread!?! What is that?!!? Ahahaa.
On a sidenote: they also serve coffee, sandwiches and they cater! Check em out if you’re ever in the neighborhood:

It's amazing how easy it is to rely on technology. Our oven back home, for instance, was electric. It had the spiffy digital temperature reading and magically baked everything the way I wanted it to. more
This year, I'm once again participating in Kanu Hawaii's "Simplify the Holidays" campaign. It's pretty simple, as the title states, the goal of this campaign is not only to reduce the ridiculous amounts of trash accumulated during the holiday season, but to really focus on giving from the heart and spending quality time with the people we love. more
Shopping at costco on an empty stomach usually ends up with ridiculous purchases. You know, like 3 pounds of cream cheese. Which would be fine if they were individually wrapped, but no such luck. This was more or less a three pound block of cream cheese, that apparently needed to be used within 10 days of opening. more
