I’m calling this doughnut because that’s what the girl behind the bar at Tarallucci e Vino on Columbus and 83rd street said it was, but I am sure it has a resounding Italian name. It’s fried dough alright, and when I got it to go for breakfast I thought to myself, “it’s too big, I’ll save half for later. By the time I got to 81st street it was entirely gone.

I haven’t tried this (I have an ice cream maker and I don’t have any ice…) but looks like the coolest thing to do with kids!
Ordered these cake pops from Stick&Pop for my daughter’s third birthday and they were beyond my expectations. Ok, the ones I really liked were the dark-chocolate-covered vanilla cakes with jimmies (I think they are called “Birthday Cake”), but they were gone before I could take a picture (the one in the picture is chocolate cake with white chocolate and confetti on the outside).
What I loved about the Birthday Cake was the moist, not too dense cake, and the delicious dark chocolate on the outside. So glad I ordered them! Surprisingly, most guests weren’t acquainted with cake pops, and I am glad I converted some of them. Cupcakes are cute and all, and dispense with the use of forks and plates, but these are even cuter, and possibly yummier, and make for a great presentation (cupcakes require a bit more work, I’d say). So, perfect for the last minute party I had to put together last week.
Owners Christy and Jacki could not have been more gracious throughout the process and ordering these pops made me feel like New York is just a small town after all.
Good old fashioned ice cream parlor right on route 9 in Red Hook. Soft serve and hard flavors! This blueberry pie has swirls of blueberry and chunks of cookie crust.
Right on the way to my house after swim lessons… dessert before lunch!
Another reason to love Gigi Market and Cafe in Red Hook: they offer a free, delicious, and organic kids’ meal for each adult meal purchased, now until mid-September. Really. No kidding. Organic salmon, Northwind Farm slider, Skizza Margherita, etc. They’ll be seeing a lot of us in the next few weeks.

We left the Union Square playground with the intention of getting a cookie at City Bakery but were detained by the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck at the corner of 17th Street. We waited a good 15 minutes in line for a Salty Pimp treat — vanilla ice cream with dulce de leche, sea salt, dipped in chocolate — because every little treat they serve seems to be painstakingly crafted by loving hands and served with a big charming smile. I loved the salty caramel thing, and the chocolate was delicious. I only wish it weren’t soft serve ice cream.
