Michael Allen Bakery At Fresh Fanatic

| December 21, 2011

If you live in Vinegar Hill/Clinton Hill near the Brooklyn Navy Yard, some would argue that limited conveniences are your compromise. It’s a hike to the subway, yet rents are cheaper.

Bite Size Treats

| July 27, 2009

I don’t know about you, but I love cupcakes. They’re the perfect sized dessert. Just enough bites to satisfy your sweet tooth. Rich and thick frosting on top. What can I say, it brings the kid out in me. While shopping in Soho with my girlfriend, I came across a little shack on Spring Street (between […]
