Happy Labor Day everyone! I don’t know about you, but the theme of my whole weekend has been FOOD, FOOD, and then some more FOOD. OH-my, I’m in serious need of following my own Thinny Tips! Ha.

Instead of reviewing everything, I’m just going to share snap-shots of the sweetest highlights!
The Chocolate Pudding from Nate ‘n Al’s was thick, rich and delicious. The consistency was almost as dense as cream cheese and the strong cocoa flavor was totally decadent.
The fresh Rugelach from Nate ‘n Al’s melted in my mouth!
This “Blum’s Coffee Crunch Cake” from Valerie Confections completely delighted me. Two layers of chiffon cake frosted in coffee whipped cream and topped with chunks of coffee honeycomb! So fun!
These ‘smore cups were a great idea, but my marshmallow was a bit hard. I would have better enjoyed the treat if a warm and gooey marshmallow melted in my mouth. The textured layers below with crunchy chocolate balls, though, salvaged the dessert.
The salted caramel ice-cream from Carmela Ice-cream was a bit salty and burnt in flavor for all of our tastes, but the strawberry-cream scoop beneath it was perfection.
These Zucchini Terrine bites from District with spiced mouse and walnut praline were original and surprisingly good. More importantly, District had one of my favorite offerings at the whole event! Their Venison Relleno with Goat Cheese and smoked Corn Puree was truly an amazing experience!
Perhaps one of my most FAVORITE treats of the weekend were these To-Die for Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip cookies, made my by friend, “the Dainty Vegetarian,” Leslie Sarna! It’s unbelievable that these cookies are also Gluten-Free and have no animal fats! Click here for this awesome recipe!
Wow- and that’s just what I had pictures for! Well, I hope you all had Labor Day weekends as Tasty as mine, and if not, may you have been working out every day for me!
