Treat to Try: Cherbourg Bakery

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Cherbourg Bakery

In this day an age, it should come as no surprise to learn that the sugarplum fairies have goodies safe for the gluten-free crew. A way of life that was once reserved for those with a rare disease is now part of a mainstream lifestyle; gluten-free products are an easy find at grocers and restaurants. […]

Treat to Try: Bailey’s Drive Inn Donuts

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Bailey’s Drive Inn Donuts

Bailey’s Drive Inn Donuts have been making special appearances at farmers markets this season. That is to say, you can’t get them at an actual “drive-in.” You’ll have to ditch the car at some point and walk to get the donuts. But walking’s good for you, and you can pretend you’re driving in: all the […]

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Miss Cristy’s Maple Oat Scones

There’s no real middle ground on scones. It seems like they turn out one of two ways: either they’re lusciously dense, perhaps packed with savory or sugary nuggets, or they’re pretty much stale biscuit triangles. Fortunately, Miss Christy’s Bakery makes scones that fall in the former category, even a day after purchase*. The operation’s scones […]

Weighing in at about twice the heft of a regular donut, they deliver more than sheer mass: the donuts deliver old-fashioned homespun goodness as well. Like any donut, Der Dutchman’s offerings come in countless forms: traditional, twisted, frosted with sprinkles. Our introduction to the scene came courtesy […]

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. Too often, pretty food and delicious food share too little space in Venn Diagrams. That said, macarons are treats that occupy that shared space. So the house macarons are the initial […]
