Appetite for Destruction

in bakeries/cafes/dessert places, dessert, recipe

After my shrink appointment yesterday I swung by I Heart Nails, where Melanie was. Noshed on this Cinnamon Apple Crisp Alt bar


…which spoiled my appetite for a post-mani/pedi trip to Joan’s on Third. I’ve actually eaten a lot of to-go foods from this LA Institution, but haven’t been to the actual store/bakery/restaurant in a while. Will have to do a future post on their new decor…


…and this epic-looking banana cake.


Around 6pm I got nibbly and noshed on 1/2 a melon, which ruined my hunger again, so I skipped straight to dessert – Microwave Chocolate Bread Pudding for two…


…4 slices Dave’s Killer Bread, 1/3 cup egg whites, 1 cup Almond Milk, 1/4 cup brown sugar, handful chopped Lindt.


Divided into twin sprayed ramekins, and ding donged for 7 minutes.



Not bad for a quickie dessert – make sure you soak all the bread in the custard, or the uncovered bits will be tough n chewy.

I love Joan’s on 3rd! Next time you go you’ll have to try the Grilled Veggie and Goat Cheese sandwich – it’s one of my faves.

Is Julius about to attack your grapes?

He probably would if I left the room. But I would never leave him alone with grapes or chocolate or raisins!!!

Not being a dog owner, I have now learned something new. I did know that chocolate is very dangerous for dogs, but I didn’t know about grapes or raisins.

Microwave bread pudding?? Sign me up! That was my favorite dessert when I was young which everyone always thought was strange. I’d choose bread pudding over cookies and ice-cream any day!
