Ben and Jerry’s Free Cone Day

Friday, April 4th, 2014 at 12:15 pm

Thankfully the weather is supposed to be in the upper 50’s next week so if you don’t eat too much ice cream this weekend (is that even possible?), you can visit a Ben and Jerry’s on Tuesday, April 8, 2014 from 12-8p and get a free cone.

In the mood for ice cream but not really into the crazy mix-ins? Check out Van Leeuwen on East 7th (in the LES) or Bergen Street (in Brooklyn). They make some incredible ice cream in… “grown-up” flavors.

A Special Thank You

This past Saturday was my second #BakedbyAssataSAYS Bake Sale and I am happy to report that it was a success! I sold out of everything and got to see so many happy faces. The best part of the day was seeing everyone’s reaction after trying the samples. The macarons were a big hit.

Check out this Vine that Rhonesha posted at the sale:

I want to thank everyone who reblogged, and reposted, and retweeted, and regramed about the sale. I also want to thank everyone who came out in the blazing sun to buy stuff and hang out with me. I appreciate you all and I hope we can all do it again next month!

#BakedbyAssataSAYS Bake Sale, Part 2

Friday, June 7th, 2013 at 10:00 am

It’s back again! Last month I held my first, public bake sale. Things went well despite the persistant (and pretty annoying) rain but I’m very eager to see how much better things will be this time around. I’m anticipating even warmer weather since this one will take place in June.

It’s National Doughnut Day!

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013 at 10:00 am

…almost. National Doughnut Day is Friday and as usual, Krispy Kreme and Dunkin’ Donuts is celebrating by giving away free doughnuts. My new, favorite doughnut spot, Dough, is also joining in on the festivities.

Dough has the BEST specialty doughnuts I’ve ever tasted and for every purchase you make on Friday, you’ll be entered to win 4 free doughnuts a week for a year! I’m still waiting to hear if this deal is good through the Smorgasburg Market in the Whole Foods on Bowery where Dough also sells. By the way, if you can make it to either location. try the Passion Fruit Donughnut with Cocoa Nibs (it’s my all time fav!).

Dinner: Deniz

Monday, May 6th, 2013 at 11:33 am

Last week I went to dinner with my friend Jia and her son Andre. She picked Deniz, a Meditteranean restaurant I pass all the time. Many times, it’s almost completely empty. That normally means the food is nasty so I was really surprised when I got my plate.

The food was fantastic!
