How is it possible that we have not yet discussed Brownie Points? The local bakery set up shop years ago as a mail-order operation. It also operates a teeny storefront in a warehouse district out by Mount Carmel East. The business bakes brownies that are particularly good for a particular sort of eater: the chunk […]

Treat to Try: Dana Lee’s Baked Goods

Farmers’ market season is in full swing, and while, for many shoppers, that means garden-fresh sweet corn and dewy greens, for other shoppers (cough) it means one thing. Cookies.

There’s just something about popsicles (or ice-pops, as “Popsicle” is evidently a brand name) that make them uniquely warm weather treats. While interest in ice cream weathers-the-weather, flavored ice starts being attractive right about… now. Columbus is home to an artisan ice-pop maker called J-POPS. It sells the individually-wrapped treats out of the freezer section […]

Treat to Try: Nonnie’s Goodies Oatmeal Scotchies

Butterscotch is the unsung hero of the dessert world. While caramel amped with salt is found in cookies, candies and ice creams galore, no one talks about butterscotch. It’s still waiting for its moment in the sun. At least Nonnie’s Goodies recognizes its virtues. The Fostoria, Ohio bakery has seen fit to load its Oatmeal […]
