Still on Vacation

Hi Everyone,

We’re still in The Big Apple and I’m approving comments and responding to emails from the hotel bar. It’s tough blogging about cookies without a kitchen, but I’ll be back with more recipes soon. Hint: The Good Housekeeping with Jonas Brothers on the front has some good looking recipes. I can’t remember what they are at the moment, but they were good enough to make me stuff the magazine in my bag to save.

So far, the weather has been gorgeous and we’ve enjoyed being in the outdoors. If you ever get the chance, walk across the Brooklyn Bridge on a sunny day. Oh, and try Gramercy Tavern…the tavern part, if not the dining room. We ate there last night and the food was excellent – maybe the best I’ve had in months. Tomorrow = compost cookie.

Adios for now.

    Ahhh, sigh, NYC! And to think, I have/had a chance to go there in August with my husband, but I’ve chosen not to. Don’t worry, I’ve given him instructions on places to go get me things! 😉 Continue on, we’ll “see you” when you get back!

    Whoopie Pie cake?! Yum! Brings back some great New England memories. Safe travels, Anna and brood.

    Hope you have a wonderful trip and look forward to hearing about the compost cookie and other delights you try at NYC’s finest bake shops. My brother’s wedding was at Gramercy Tavern in October, 1999! It was one of the very best meals ever!

    Aah Milk Bar. We were in the city and
    just had the compost cookies and the cornflake cookies over the weekend. Oh yeah, the Dulche de Leche cake and the Candybar pie too. We shared! I don’t know if you eat meat, but the pork buns are sooo good. Perfect combo of flavors and textures. Funny thing is my kids weren’t crazy about the cookies but wanted seconds on the pork buns! Enjoy your visit. There’s a restaurant called Sweetie Pie, not far from Magnolia Bakery, I know Fuzz would love it. Enjoy.

    Hey You, World Traveler! Have a terrific time and I bet the weather is much cooler than the South, eh? Looking forward to whatever you decide to tempt us with when you get back…safe trip!!

    Gramercy Tavern was so good as was the Union Square Cafe, so check that out during one of your jaunts to NYC if you haven’t already!

    You missed all the rain we’ve been having.

    I’d be interested in hearing your impression of Momofuku myself. 😉 Definitely not for the timid.
