Happy Friday! Last weekend I had the most glorious Sunday with my girlfriends. We started the morning with yoga, then a trip to the Santa Monica stairs (which overlooks the Pacific ocean), and then went to the Farmer’s Market to eat all the calories we just burned! I wish I could do that every Sunday!
I found some amazing 5-cherry delights at the Brentwood Farmer’s Market, so I encourage you to go for me this Sunday since I can’t (I’ll be at my Wedding Shower!!! eeeg).
While it’s a shame I never got an actual cupcake from Temptations Cupcakes, I did have a slice of this heavenly Berry Tort pictured above. It was way more exciting and delicious than it looked. I thought it would taste too “healthy” and boring for me. Au contraire! The tort was thick, whipped, sweet, creamy, dreamy and dynamic. I swooned. Click here for more info on Temptations Cupcakes!
These rich and fudgy Raw, Vegan, Organic Brownie Bites by Patisseraw got the 2-thumbs up stamp of approval from my super healthy friend Juls, of AwakeandLiving.com. For healthy decadence, these treats are the way to go. Click here for more info on Patisseraw!
The dessert that really knocked me silly was this sample of Vegan Brownies by Livia’s Kitchen. OhmyGAWWD, I haven’t enjoyed a Vegan dessert this much since the Vegan cupcake at Yummy Cupcakes! It’s very rare indeed, that a Vegan dessert earns an enthusiastic 5-cherries. This flavorful brownie had a deep chocolate taste with hints of salt, and almond meal substitute for flower (which gave it the added bonus of protein! ). Wow- even without butter, I loved this brownie. For more information on Livia’s Kitchen, click here.
All and all, a totally successful trip to the Farmer’s Market!
