Have I mentioned that I’m smitten with our new neighborhood? Brooklyn is proving to be better that we even thought it would be. There is constantly something going on in our neighborhood or surrounding area that celebrates local chefs/artists/authors etc. For the past two weekends we’ve been taking our daily family walk with the baby to Smorgasburg- a Brooklyn food flea market. We’ve sampled a crazy amount of delicious food with a few standout favorites. Think Fried Green Tomato BLTs, Maine Lobster Rolls, Fuji Apple Lemonade, and yummy dessert offerings like Blood Orange Doughnuts and my favorite of all…the best Black and White Cookies you’ve ever tasted. I was surprised when I noticed that these perfectly cakey cookies that were being freshly frosted came from the local bakery on our block. Lassen and Hennigs is one of our favorite neighborhood spots for sandwiches, but who knew that they made out-of-this-world classic Black and White Cookies.
p.s. Send a few good vibes my way… I submit my cookbook manuscript on Monday! I’ll be spending the weekend looking it over for one final edit while soaking up some quality time with the yummiest 3 month old baby around. Happy Weekend!
