Cape & Island Bakes

Just like in Boston, Boston Bakes has widespread partners throughout the North East. Our newest partnerships take us all the way to Cape Cod, Nantucket, and Martha’s Vineyard for a week of baking delicious desserts and fundraising right at the beginning of June. While our newest set of fundraising events, Cape & Island Bakes has grown relatively large in the few years it has been running, and now encompasses much of the seaside Massachusetts.

California Eats: Part 1

I’m an East coast girl but I love visiting the sunny state of California from time to time. I just returned from a vacation to Los Angeles and San Diego to reconnect with good friends, soak in some (much-needed) Vitamin D, and of course explore the good eats.

But don’t forget to try the apple cider donuts!  I mean try them at everyplace you find them since they are as different as every apple pie you have ever tasted!

One of the best apple cider donuts I had the pleasure of enjoying was at Russell Orchards …

 

Dessert Showcase

Last Saturday, I attended the 2012 New England Dessert Showcase at the Sheraton Hotel in Boston, hosted by The Anthem Group. Each year, the event brings together dessert fans to sample sweets from local restaurants, bakeries, and vendors. I have been looking forward to this for a while, seeing as I have a huge sweet tooth. I was only there for a little over an hour but probably consumed enough desserts for the whole week! Each sample size was generous, too. Halfway through the event and starting to feel full, my friends and I started to split the samples, so …
