Hi! Thanks for visiting "Lady and the Blog". I would love for you to learn a little more about me and my family! Hope you enjoy your visit!

This Is How You Know You Have Good Friends

I mentioned that I wanted to start food blogging once a week and on Friday I had a date with a couple that I adore.  I was ALL SET. Camera in the purse – ready to rock and roll. Then we got to talking and BAM – here comes the dessert. I completely FORGOT to photograph everything!

LOL! I started to scream about how upset I was and they suggested we stage a few dessert shots.

Mind you – they were SO NOT INTO TAKING THE PHOTOS. But they did because they love me and we had a big laugh about it when it was done. In the end, I am not going to make this the review for Upper Crust Cafe in Garden City because it was SO GOOD that I would be doing it an injustice if I just focused on desserts. Though the desserts were y-u-m-m-y.

What’s your favorite dessert place? My favorite breakfast place is ‘Cracker Barrel’ – but I don’t really have a favorite dessert spot. My friend from LA said ‘The Donut Man’ is to DIE FOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He is definitely on my list of places to see the next time I get to the West Coast.
