Salted Caramel Pie from Dangerously Delicious Pies

My husband and I had plans to be in the Detroit area this weekend, and so I insisted that we stop by Dangerously Delicious Pies, which Chow Down Detroit had recently posted about on Instagram. I’m never one to pass up an opportunity to try a new dessert, so we went in search of this pie shop and their salted caramel pie.

Dangerously Delicious Pies is located inside the Third Street Bar, which is located really close to the Wayne State campus. Finding the pies, however, can be a little confusing. Go around to the back of the bar, which is actually the entrance, and this giant sign will let you know that you’ve made it to the correct location:

 Then, enter the bar and look to your left and you will find the pie stand.

Pomme d’Amour at Knead Patisserie

Pomme d'Amour (Creme Brulee Pastry) from Knead Patisserie in San Francisco

I was in San Francisco this past weekend and one of the friends that I was with told me that we had to stop by Knead Patisserie because she had heard about a crème brûlée pastry that we just had to try. I was obviously game as I don’t ever turn down the chance to try a new dessert!

Knead Patisserie is located in what I’m told is the Mission, and it’s a little out of the way if you’re staying downtown. I really don’t know about public transportation options as we took cabs to get there and back.

Can I take a second to tell you how glad I am that we made this trip? The Pomme d’Amour at Knead Patisserie might be the single best pastry I have ever had in my life. EVER.

Turtle Sundae from Dairy Deluxe

Dairy Deluxe Turtle Sundae


Should you ever find yourself in the metro Detroit area I highly recommend taking a trip to Birmingham to check out Dairy Deluxe, a fantastic little ice cream stand that you can’t miss if you’re driving along Woodward.

While I’ve never heard anyone complain about anything they’ve had from Dairy Deluxe, I’ve actually only had the turtle sundae. As many turtle sundaes as I have had in my life there is no question that the turtle sundae from Dairy Deluxe is the absolute best.

Lemon Cupcake from Frosted

I recently spent a few days in Long Beach, California, and per usual, I made a list of bakeries to check out. Though I am largely over the cupcake craze, Frosted Cupcakery had such rave reviews that I added it to my list.

Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE cupcakes. It’s just that I’ve had so many subpar cupcakes over the past couple of years that I’ve found myself looking for new types of desserts to enjoy.

Adding Frosted to my list ended up being one of the best decisions I made on this trip to the west coast. If you want to know what a really freaking good cupcake tastes like, then get yourself over to Frosted ASAP. I loved it so much that in a four day trip I went there twice. I considered stopping a third time but didn’t want to risk becoming a regular in such a short amount of time. Continue reading →
