I’ve decided to start a new series titled none other than “Things I love”.
I’m writing this post as I sit in a dessert coma. Yes, but it was soo worth it! For over a year, I’d heard about what a great chef Ayla (owner of Evelyn’s Kitchen) was from my friend Dolores and about a month ago I got to experience the hype first hand. Dolores dropped off a box of Ayla’s Toffee Blondie Bites. Oh my Lord! I swear, it is like a little taste of heaven. Serious!!! This comes from someone who’s not a big dessert person. Then about a week later, as fate would have it, Ayla catered a Valentines Day event at the job and again, I came face to face with the Blondie Bites and ran right smack into the most delicious mini red velvet cupcakes.
I spoke of the delicious dessert bites for weeks and finally yesterday, Raf and I got into the car and took the drive to Ayla’s store front in Harlem. There I was greeted with the tantalizing aromas of samoas baking in the oven (Watch out Girl Scouts), shelves of just-baked blondie bites, personal sized apple pies and soo many other indulgences. I had walked into a dessert-a-holic’s dream! Don’t worry I was well behaved and walked out with a small Yummy Box of Blondie Bites, red Velvet cupcakes and an mini apple pie for Raf. I couldn’t wait to get home so I could enjoy my goodies. It was totally worth it and don’t worry, I didn’t eat it all. There’s plenty left over which I will kindly give away to my son and nephew.
If you’re a dessert-a-holic, definitely check out Evelyn’s Kitchen on Facebook, where’ll you see more of her work.
In the meantime, I couldn’t help but take a few pictures of my treats before I ate them. Enjoy!
Oh yes!!!!!Just look at all that toffee goodness!The cutest mini apple pie you’ve ever seen!Face to face with the devil again!! Ah…..
