How Sweet it is – Summer Edition

I am not a sweets person.

Give me potato chips over cookies any day of the week.

BUT…

recently, I have been Cookie Monster.

Here are some of the best sweets that have recently entered my gullet:

Though not quite as ethereal as those at Locanda Verde, a very reputable version. Thin and light with super crispy caramelized edges. Dip them in sweet maple syrup or tangy lemon curd that accentuates the tart, zingy pancakes. These are on the breakfast menu but could easily be served for dessert  - get them with a side of bacon if you want a salty edge.

Awww yeah. Funfetti hits the big time. I have always loved the taste of overly sweet buttercream frosting, sprinkled with multicolored dots. Spread it out over yellow box mixed cake with those same dots throughout and it’s my childhood in a cake tin. In macaorn form, it’s sweet vanilla scented with a thin, slightly too greasy buttercream layer in between the cookies.

yet more pictyuhz 046 Strawberry-rhubarb cobbler at Ocean Grill

This restaurant, part of the BR Guest group, has exquisitely fresh seafood and an upscale atmosphere. However the sleeper hit isn’t the oyster selection or the spicy bloody mary but this rhubarb strawberry desert. Sweet and bright with a crumbly oatmeal topping and moist interior. It’s ideal with its scoop of creamy orange frozen yogurt alongside. This seasonal treat is only available for a short time, so get it while the fruits are still in season!
