Treat to Try: Simply Sweet Coffee Cake

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Simply Sweet Coffee Cake

It’s embarrassing that it’s taken so long to try out HTH Market in Linworth. The little market’s gotten lots of recommendations, and it’s devoted to a good cause (Hope Thru Housing). What it took to finally put the car in park was complete desperation: it’s hard to find a good peach on a weekday. The […]

Treat to Try: Das KaffeeHaus von Frau Burkhart

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Das KaffeeHaus von Frau Burkhart

Honestly, who doesn’t want to stop at Das KaffeeHaus von Frau Burkhart? It takes forever to pronounce all the words, but they are so very satisfying to say; even more so with a faux German accent. The KaffeeHaus is a little corner coffee cafe that set up shop inside of Zauber brewing. The coffee shop […]

Treat to Try: Kiss of Orange Muffins

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Kiss of Orange Muffins

Straight up, the first bite of a Kiss of Orange Muffins is sort of surprising. They’re not sweet. The muffin marketplace is saturated with sugary sweeties made from cake-mix, so it’s natural to expect anything labeled as a muffin to conform. They look like totally normal muffins, but nope. What they are, however, are tender-crumbed […]

That’s because Fronana is […]

There are coffee drinkers, then there are coffee drinkers. In one camp, it’s about roast and origin; stark and pure. In the other camp, coffee is basically a vehicle for sugar and whipped cream. With all due respect to the purity people, my personal java preference is for the foofy drinks. The closer the beverage […]

Treat to Try: Cookie Dough Creamery

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Cookie Dough Creamery

It seems like frozen yogurt was big in the 80s, then it had a brief reprisal five years ago, and now… it’s gone again. Really gone. That’s sad, right? It was the like Golden Corral of sugars. You pick a flavor (or flavors) of soft-serve, then load on the gummi bears and chocolate syrup. Priced […]

Treat to Try: Giorgio Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Giorgio Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies

Giorgio Cookie Company is a little bakery that set up shop in Bellaire, Ohio a few years ago. It’s made a name for itself with its biscotti and fussy cookies. And while biscotti can be an acquired taste, and a lifetime of pretty cookies has taught some scarring lessons about the deceptiveness of pretty party […]
