Now you can prepare all of the Dahlia Bakery deliciousness from the comfort of your own home. Tom Douglas generously hosted an open house party to celebrate the release of his new Dahlia Bakery cookbook, Sweetness in Seattle. The event was a chance to check out the book, mingle with Tom D and his crew, and relish in some Dahlia goodies.
On course for the night was a mix of Tom’s most well-known savory and sweet staples. Among my favorites were the fried green tomato bacon biscuit sandwich, Dahlia donuts with mascarpone, and a cookie decorating station. The cookbook is filled with 125 recipes to keep your bakery arsenal well-equipped for the holidays!

This past Sunday, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis announced a free secret show that night for the first 600 fans at Neumos. Also, Macklemore ordered for his fans in line the best artisan ice pops in Seattle… Six Strawberries.
Six Strawberries ice pops specializes in ingredients that are dairy free and from the Northwest. The innovative selection consists of all flavor profiles such as Chai, Strawberry Rhubarb Pie, Thai Iced Tea, Blueberry a la mode, and other good stuff. The crew (Vanessa and Will) not only deliver well on taste but also from the trunk of their bicycle carts. Tweet these guys to find out their whereabouts and when you can relish on these artisan ice pops.
Seattle’s own Macklemore & Ryan Lewis just released their first album, “The Heist”. The album made it to #1 on iTunes and they did it being I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T. Their album has some of the most moving, inspiring, and meaningful tracks out there. So take a listen and hopefully you’ll like it as much as I do.

Cake Envy…..It’s your birthday! And we are going to party like it’s your birthday! Last weekend many of us helped Cake Envy celebrate their 1 year birthday bash. The party was pretty poppin with a dj, rose’, charcuterie from Spur Gastropub, prizes, and of course dessert. It was great turnout with plenty of people, kids, and everyone partaking in the festivities.
Cake Envy is about local, sustainable, the best ingredients, and producing some of the most envious treats. The space is a charming modern feel that sets the mood for a fun social environment….also serving beer and wine helps with that. For the cupcakes, my faves are the Mexican chocolate, Almond Creme Anglaise, and Neapolitan. I’ve been a fan of Cake Envy since their grand opening a year ago. It’s my goto special occasion shop and even more special since they will be creating my wedding cake. PS, I won the grand prize as I was randomly selected for a custom designed wedding cake. *insert celebration dance here*
the Menu and local hipster

For those warm summer evenings in Seattle, I’m mooning over Molly Moon’s. The hipster artisan ice cream is Seattle’s finest. My choices are the Earl Grey and Scout Mint (made from real girl scout cookies). The flavors next in line are the Stumptown Coffee and Honey Lavender.
The ambiance is a clean, modern, and northwest industrial feel. The lines get pretty long here, but it comes with the territory if you want Molly Moon’s. Sometimes at night you can partake in a dodgeball game across the street.
