Tour de Dessert

A small preview from my self-made Dessert Tour of Los Angeles from last weekend.

But first, two notes:
1. There will be additional Tour de Dessert - there are too many wonderful places to visit!
2. Calories don't count if you just look at pictures; I promise.

A map! You had to know I'd write an itinerary, right?And look, it's color-coded.

Only we didn't get to all of those shops. And we found new additions on the way. [Reason #1 why there will need to be at least one follow-up tour. Reason #2? Do we even need a reason #2??]

And now - a preview of the deliciousness!

Parisian macarons. Far superior to those coconut haystacks I grew up with at Passover.

Fried cheesecake. Seriously! Fried. Cheesecake. Amaaaaazing.

The rest will have to wait. Dessert is worth a wait, no?

Do you have a sweet tooth like me?
What is your favorite dessert? 



  1. I don't think I really had a sweet tooth before hanging out with YOU!!!! Last night I was eating semi-sweet chocolate chips straight out of the bag and I dream of baking. What is wrong with me?!?! LOL.

    My favorite dessert is probably a toss up between red velvet cheesecake, Tollhouse chocolate chip cookies, brownies without icing, those lemon cookies, lemon bars and tirimisu.

  2. You are killing me with the wait!
