  • What we eat when we are not eating at Baked – a NYC Bakery List

    May 29, 2013 / By Matt

    Yes, we (Renato/myself) frequent other New York City bakeries. A lot. Perhaps more so than is reasonably sound.

  • On Mom and Butterscotch and “Blond” Scones

    May 7, 2013 / By Matt

    [In honor of this upcoming Mother’s Day, I thought a post about my mom was in order. And don’t forget Moms everywhere this Sunday. Heck, maybe you should even order your mom a Lemondrop cake :)] My mom had a thing for butterscotch chips. She used to eat them like M&M’s – popping a few pieces…
