In my 20s, I proudly declared to anyone who’d listen that I didn’t like desserts, that they “weren’t worth eating.” And now, I’m here to tell you: I was totally lying.
At 5’1,” I have always worried about my weight. Five pounds on me is ten pounds on someone taller; the height helps. Over the years, I have worked hard to make peace with what and who I am. And, that means being real about the fact that I kinda like a cookie now and then.
That said, good health and proper nutrition are so important to fitness, which is such a huge part of my life. (If you’re ever looking for me in Whole Foods, I’m in the produce aisle diving into the fresh fruit and vegetable display.)
But, when holidays come around, there are a handful of sweet treats that I love: ice cream, yellow daisy cupcakes from Billy’s Bakery and cookies from Liddabit Sweets. For Valentine’s Day, I stopped by the Liddabit Sweets shop in Chelsea Market, open (and serving me) since last fall, to show you around and sample some of their latest.
The *amazing* salted caramel chocolate chip cookies…dangerous!
Definitely worth eating, right? If you’re still wondering about what to buy for your sweet…try these. (Ask for Robin.) And, have a very happy Valentine’s Day!
