Eat Bake Love goes to America! Part 1

As many of you know America is the motherland of pretty much all my favourite baked goods. We're talking brownies, pies, cupcakes and basically all the high fat aka high delicious factor foods that exist!

I just recently went to the USA for a holiday and got to experience some of the most incredible food EVER, this is a post dedicated to just a small sample of those treats I got to try....

Frozen yoghurt

More commonly known as "FroYo" in the states is basically a self serve yoghurt machine with different flavors but the real treat lies in the toppings....

The place we went to with our friends had EVERYTHING! Cherries, sprinkles, broken up chocolate bars, nuts in fact theres so many I've just decided to paste a picture of some of them off their website...

Just wow! You can choose as many as you like and then you pay by how much it weighs. I couldn't choose so just decided to go with as many as I could! Result? a seriously amazing frozen treat like no other I've tried. Plus it was soy! :-)


Every brownie I tried in America was about ten times better than any brownie I've tried in NZ. Crazy right? How is it that they can be so much better? I guess because they did invent them so they should be the experts right? My absolute favourite was from a little deli in New York called Pax Wholesome Deli It was just a plain chocolate brownie with chocolate icing and it was amazing!

Here are two others I tried and also loved!

Caramel, pecan and white chocolate brownie purchased from Magnolia Bakery in New York.

and a Salted Caramel brownie purchased from Wholefoods


O.M.G! I don't even know where to start. Sandwiches in the USA are so good they are almost a religious experience. I had more amazing sandwiches in 2 weeks than I've had in my whole life. 

One of my favourites was this sandwich below that we purchased from a place called Lenny's in NY.

Corned beef, Hot pastrami, American cheese and homemade coleslaw. Om nom nom nom!

I also had my fair share of incredible turkey, cranberry and cheese sandwiches. Americans really love their turkey! as well as trying this beast which we purchased from a street fair in New York. Hot pastrami, homemade dill pickles and mustard.

and of course I had to try this...

A Philly Cheesesteak from Carmen's in Philadelphia  aka where Obama likes to get his Cheesesteak!

Next post I'll tell you about the breakfasts, cupcakes, burgers and coffee :-)
