Things-That-Look-Like-Food Club presents - "Give us it"

Soap again!!

My dad sent me some fabulous little X-mas gifts, and when I opened up these lovelies from
Ella Cris and placed them side by side I had a strange urge to chomp down with all massive, joy-lit delight. Gladly I didn't, I mean, it's still soap, but how gorgeous can you be?

I imagined some swirly tops of blue lavender whip cream and a thick honey comb wedge of butter on the side. yesh.

Leda's Bake Shop - Food Lover's Haven

There's a great place in Sherman Oaks called Leda's bakeshop, with the best brownies scones and cupcakes in the valley, pretty much hands down. As much as I know I adore food, I'm always surprised at my obsession for the naked parts, or just baked forms, of pastries, cakes and cookies...


Every time they make these I find myself falling into a trance as they crunchy-crunch *SLLLICE* the thick chocolate wedge with the big serrated knife. mmmm, momma loves you freshly just barely baked gooey walnut brownie innards.


They scoop ALOT of cookies, (you can see them working just behind the glass windows) and they're pretty cute, all lined up in rows, though just like any normal cookie would look. BUT, when a slab of cold, shiny butter exposes itself like this in one of the cookie dough balls, I swear to god I could have a baby. And name it OMG I F**KING LOVE BUTTER.


They also make homemade ducle de leche, and I'm still amazed at how easy it is (*boil a can of sweetened condensed milk, taking care to keep it submerged at ALL times, for 4-5 hours. Das' it!)

And then it looks like that.


Go check them out! yumm

Things-That-Look-Like-Food Club presents: "Shove it in My Mouth"

Ok, I know it's not real food, but that doesn't mean it's not hot as F**K or that I don't want to eat it. (ahem).

But seriously, one look at these amazingly crafted soaps from Mollycoddle's shop on and you'll forgive the impostors.

Sometimes you just have to come right out and say it: Yes, I will eat that soap, thank you.

I fortunately have a subscription to Gourmet magazine and this month it was one doozy after another...

Um... do me now

A few years ago my sister and I visited my dad and went to Boston. I remember there was something about a "Paul Revere" and maybe a "Freedom Trail" and like, history, birth of the country or something, and then there was - MIKE'S PASTRY!

Maybe it was just the fact that we'd been walking for hours and had seen about 3 people carrying the bakery's tightly wrapped, white boxes, (God's will my child) but there was something holy and deeply, deeply seductive about that crowded, steamy room, that wide cupped cappuccino, and oh yes... that cannoli.

Now I remember why.
