Treat to Try: Good Food Bakery

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Good Food Bakery

Sure, it’s prime-time for growables such as sweet corn and tomatoes, but the local farmers market scene continues to provide excellent opportunities to try out independent, local baked goods. Even though bakeries can operate 365 days of the year, the summer markets give them sales outlets and opportunities that simply don’t exist in the winter. […]

Treat to Try: Smidgen

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Smidgen

A good-looking macaron is impossible to pass by. The treats are so prissy and dainty, and yet . . . so packed with flavor.

Both gluten-free and Ohio-grown products have become so abundant in stores, they’re not necessarily marketed with big announcements of their specialness. While Moondance Desserts does disclose its gluten-free-ness on its label, its chocolate chip cookies were found in the mix with a bunch of normal cookies, and the fact that it’s based in Cincinnati became […]

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Anthony Thomas Easter Eggs

You’ve got one candy holiday left, sweeties. Then it’s a dry spell until Halloween. No joke: All the good eating holidays are between October and April. No one gives you candy on Memorial Day, Independence Day or Labor Day. That’s just how it is. So, go big for Easter. Cadbury eggs are nice, but they’re […]
