Window Shopping Wednesday

I am not much of a shopper, much to my mother’s chagrin. The woman can spend days at the mall, while I start to feel itchy after just a few hours. It’s not that I’m not materialistic, I totally am, it’s just that the thought of adding more stuff to my life makes it hard to breathe. But I like the idea of things. So I’m an avid window shopper. I browse catalogs I’ll never buy from and hold my breathe when I pass the window at J.Crew. So while I’m stuck at school on Wednesdays, I thought we could have some fun via blog. Let’s window shop!

Can you guess what I’m coveting this week?  I’ll give you some hints – Yesterday was Valentine’s Day.  We are currently halfway through Vegan Month.

1. Salty Sweet Brownies from Baked.

Adam and I had the joy of visiting Baked in person (in the amazing Red Hook area) while we were living in Brooklyn and it kills me that I can’t go back every week.  I have their cookbook and I find myself looking at it again and again.  I’ve never tried the salty sweet brownie, but their hazelnut cake rocked my socks.  And how can you go wrong with anything that’s infused with caramel and fleur de sel?

2.  An order of Cookies and Cream Marshmallow Dream fondue from The Melting Pot.

And I quote – “dark chocolate topped with marshmallow cream flambéed and topped with bits of delicious Oreo cookies.”  I’m sorry, cookies and cream and marshmallow?!

3.  Cookie Butter from Trader Joe’s.

I know it won’t be as good as Biscoff Spread, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to taste it and see for myself!  And I’ve heard rumors of a cookie butter stuffed dark chocolate candy bar.

4. A pint of Caramel Cookie Crunch from Talenti Gelato.

I know it seems like I love ice-cream (and I do!), but really I’m gelato’s biggest fan.  My only complaint is that it tends to be difficult to find gelato flavors with “mix-ins.”  No more.  Crunchy plus creamy is where it’s at.

5.  An assorted truffle gift box from Godiva.

There is never a worse time to be unable to eat milk chocolate than Valentine’s Day.  Yesterday every tweet about a heart-shaped box was like an arrow to the heart.  And this box has hazelnut praliné, double dark chocolate and coconut truffles.

What are you craving this week?
