A perfect evening in Philly: crab profiteroles at Sofitel Lounge and cake pops at Shakespeare theater

The food and service at Sofitel’s Liberty Lounge was incredible! Actually, the kale chips were a bit of a miss but otherwise, it was all lovely. They messed up the check initially but apologized and made amends immediately.

Next we went to Crumb’s. They have generic cupcakes with sickening frosting, but we picked up a couple of cake pops and went down the street to Philadelphia Shakespeare Theater where we caught Othello. The performance was excellent as always!

The Perfect Fridge?

Refrigerators just don’t seem to be built to TRULY work for the things that people want to store. How are you going to store a tall cake, or a thanksgiving turkey? How about your giant Le Creuset pot?  They are are pretty much the same, but  here’s the solution!

The solution is to have a section that you can open from the top, that is very deep! This way, you can fit your Thanksgiving turkey!!!! Why hasn’t GE made something like this yet?!?!? The bottom sections that need to be more insulated will not be transparent, but the tops parts can be! This actually isn’t the perfect fridge, but we’re definitely saying that there is definitely a way to improve the current refrigerator design!

Here is the Easter Pinterest roundup:

Carrot cake is a must 😉 this one is super cute. Italian Easter bread looks like the perfect mix between challah and a pretzel… We should try it! Making a hard boiled egg look like a chick is cute ( and also mortifying). Lastly, did you know you can bake a cupcake inside an egg shell? We have to try it!!!

New York visit 2013

Every year, we aim to take a trip to NYC. There, we split treats at as many highly praised eateries as we can manage. Here’s a look at this year’s trip!

Like last year, we could NOT pass up a nice brunch at Alice’s Tea Cup. It is one of our favorite places in the city.

When we stopped saw the famous waffle cart, called ” Waffels and Dinges“, we looked it up and knew that we had to share one, just for the experience. It did NOT disappoint.

We knew that it was practically a crime that we had never been to Milkbar before, so we made a point to rectify our our past wrongdoing. Crack pie is delicious, but you can only stomach about half a piece. What was even better was the cake truffles! We also enjoyed cereal milk ice cream. It was incredible!!

Gyu-kaku is an excellent japanese barbecue joint. The prices are pretty good and so is the service. If you have a lot of time to kill and are patient, you will love it. You have to cook your meat yourself, so just make sure you know what you are doing! They give you a little lesson first, though 😛

Burgers and Cupcakes is a quiet little restaurant. It’s not too pretty and the service is slow. The burgers are so-so, too. BUT THE CUPCAKES!!!! OH THE CUPCAKES!! They are hideous! They are the most delicious eyesores we have ever seen/tasted. Our chocolate peanut butter cupcake has officially made it into the top five cupcakes we have ever had. FIVE STARS (for the cupcake) and THREE STARS (For the rest of the place).

Here, you can simply get fruit with some yogurt on top rather than yogurt with a few pieces of fruit.

You can tailor- make anything you want using the touchscreen ordering system. There’s not a lot of seating, but the place is clean and the food is delicious.
