Bullets Over Broadway is officially open at the St. James Theatre on West 44th Street!!!  Last Thursday was our opening night and what an incredible night it was.  The audience was roaring with laughter and enjoyment while our smiles onstage were pure happiness.  The show is incredible and we are so proud to be a part of it!  The opening  night part was at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in their Egyptian room.  This was the classiest party we’ve ever attended with stars galore.  It was fun to get all dolled up and attend this fancy soiree.  What an amazing time to be in a Broadway show together AND make dog biscuit cookies for props in the show.  Congrats to everyone involved with the production!  Come see us in Bullets Over Broadway!

1.  What is your favorite dessert and why?

Birthday cake macarons from Bouchon!  I love a good macaron — they are delicate, delicious and a perfect size serving for a sweet treat.  Bouchon has a particularly fabulous flavor (seasonal) — birthday cake — that has sprinkles and tastes just like a perfect yellow vanilla box cake your mom would make.

Spotted: Key Lime Pie on the UWS

sliceredfarmkeylimeredfarm

 

It’s extremely hard to find a good key lime pie in NYC, so when a friend recommended the dessert at a new UWS restaurant, Red Farm,  I went right away.  Key Lime pie isn’t my favorite dessert but there are a lot of JDNYC readers that ask where to get a good slice.  Served with lemon serbert, the ceamy center was topped with toasted marshmallow.  The crust was made of extremely fresh and crumbly graham crackers.  Die-hard key lime pie fans might be turned off by the marshmallow but I thought
