I swear to God this place is the mastermind of some evil genius that is working behind the scenes at Jenny Craig or Weight Watchers to make us all fat so we have to use their programs! What other sick and twisted mind could come up with these monster sized concoctions of sugary awesomeness?
Seriously, these are cookies on steroids!
None other can compare. Oreo’s? Nice try loser. Chips Ahoy? Outta my way wimp. Levain’s cookies are the big bodybuilder guy that kicks sand in your little cookies’ faces on the beach, and then makes out with your girlfriend right in front of you!
Levain’s cookies eat other less worthy cookies for breakfast! Continue reading Levain Bakery – Mad Scientist Evil Genious Cookies!
One of the greatest things about living in NYC is the outrageous abundance of mouth watering places to eat across all five boroughs. One of the hottest right now for the foodie scene has to be the borough of my birth – Brooklyn USA! Easy to get to from Manhattan by subway. So many things to see and do. So many places to drink and eat!
Here is another one for The Gluttony Files –
How do I even begin to describe probably some of the greatest mac & cheese I have ever eaten? I mean, this stuff was devastating and blew my mind. I dream about it. I have cold sweats like an addict that can’t get his fix as it’s been too long now since my last hit of gooey goodness. Just inject that fatty cheesiness right into my veins!
If there is one thing that DuMont does exceptionally well, it definitely is their mac & cheese. Thick soft pasta shells covered by layers of mouth watering different cheeses, pieces of thick bacon mixed in, and a crust that is crisp and browned on the outside with real breadcrumbs. Wow – that crust is the stuff of mac & cheese legend, and it’s the kind of thing that wars are fought over. I still stare at the picture I took of it. They give you so much on the plate it begs you to share, but I was having none of that! Yes, I am disturbed, I know, but I just can’t help myself. DuMont has ruined me for mac & cheese at any other place I go the rest of my life. The after effects were a food coma like non other. Continue reading Mac & Cheesy Mac & Cheese in Brooklyn!
Well, it’s April 1st and time to start really taking a cold hard look at my eating habits. Time to reevaluate what I am putting in my body and my fitness goals. With summer just around the corner I want to rock the six-pack, and not hide the bod from view. I know what to do, how to eat, how to train. I used to be a personal trainer dammit! Yet, it is so hard as temptation is everywhere in NYC!
How on God’s green Earth am I ever supposed to eat normal living in this city of excess? Really, I mean, WTF!!!! WHAT – THE – EFFFFF!!!!!
The City Bakery –
