Last weekend was my third time attending an Iron Cupcake Madison event.  This time, the theme was caramel and butterscotch, it definitely sounded like a winner to me!  This time, the event was at the East Side Club.  (It switches locations pretty much every time.)  I remembered the line that I ran into last time [...]

Salted Dulce De Leche Macaroons

Posted by Bianca Garcia under Top Foodie Blog
There is something that competes with chocolate for my favorite dessert flavor, and that is salted caramel. Salted caramel ice cream? Yes please. Salted caramel cupcake? Oh my. Chocolate covered caramel with sea salt on top? I'm giddy with excitement. So when I decided to bake coconut macaroons for the first time, I could've gone the chocolate [...]

Let me talk about the fun stuff first: authentic Belgian waffles right in Harvard Square. After almost a year of teasing us with the promise of some good quality waffles, Zinneken's is finally in business. [...]

L’Atelier des Chefs, Paris: Les secrets de la confiserie

Posted by Mardi@eatlivetravelwrite under Top Foodie Blog
Many of you know that when I was in Paris this summer, I took advantage of having a couple of weeks to occupy myself filled this time with some macaron-making classes.  Since I (rightly) figured I might have macaron fatigue after a few classes (and, errr, a number of macaron-tasting sessions!), I also signed up [...]

Saltine Caramels

Posted by traveleatlove under Food, Top Foodie Blog
One of the huge perks of attending Eat, Write, Retreat was the well-stocked swag bag that attendees received.
