Mini Miss Melissa

These cupcakes are in my mind “guilt free”, that is because they are so small that you forget you even put them in your mouth. All kinds of kooky flavors too. Baked By Melissa is my new favorite thing. Mini bite size cupcakes!! They are also displayed in such a manor– like toy soliders lined up to be eaten. Very orderly and neat. Just how I like it. Missy has two locations already in the city. Dunkin better watch out, little mini Miss Melissa is on her way.

HIP TO BE SQUARE- Adrianne’s Pizza Bar

Wobble on down to the cobble stone street to STONE STREET in the Financial District to this wonderful pizza bar. We all know by now that pizza is cool again. This is not really a bar but a great place filled with fresh old fashion square pizza. It is the best I have tasted in awhile. Remember Ray’s Pizza in the village after nights of “clubbing”. Square is where it’s at!

Who Knew Burger Heaven Came With White Linens!

I made it through with only one napkin at this great new restaurant, 5 Napkin Burger on 45th/9th ave in New York City. Go for the original!! Let me warn you, it is extremely messy. By the end I was eating the burger and the bun with a fork and knife. This was a first. I guess that was why I didn’t need all 5 napkins like they suggested in their title. I left floating……



I don’t know about you, but just about every night at around 10pm, the sweet tooth fairy arrives to my door. I want brownies, ice cream, cheesecake. or any kind of cookies ,and sometimes it is just good old Hershey’s. Instead I go for my sugar-free Jello. We all know that all any sugar at 10pm is just not good!  All the tropical flavors of my Jello sends me into desert heaven but without the added guilt. Try it…it may change your life. It did mine and my scale.

Hey Kid- Cabrito

Picture 1

Remember the days of Carmine St. Old records stores and the best Italian food??  Well it has a new twist called Cabrito! I’m always looking for a new authentic Mexican restaurant in town. This small eatery is up beat and cool. Don’t get scared from their speciality…Goat!  I tried it and it was rather tasty. Please PETA don’t throw paint!!

How Sweet It Is: Sundaes and Cones


Summer is coming and so is Mint Chocolate Chip! I know it is not good for the waist, but hey if tastes good every once in a while, go for it! This homemade Ice Cream joint cleverly named Sundaes and Cones is located at 95 E 10th St between 3rd and 4th Ave. is totally worth the trip. You will feel like Cape Cod has invaded The City. Their unique flavors are a plus, but for me it was all about the MCC(mint chocolate chip). I did not feel guilty!

Sip, Shake, and Spin: STAND

Toasted Marshmallow Shakes! Stop right there! This is totally “bananas”! A Pot of Pickles! Get me out of here, I mean get me in here. This burger haven in Union Square is one of my favorite spots. Everything is amazing. This chic eatery plays some of the best music in town and everything here is great. You can not go wrong. I need to try a” take out” shake so I can go to marshmallow heaven again!
