Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend and all the Mama’s were spoiled rotten. Life has been a little nutty for me lately, and that’s why I’m so excited about this post. I was inspired by Nicole of Just Live It! She recently set her blog to private – she missed the simplicity of writing about her days and sharing whatever it was that was on her mind. After reading that post, she honestly had me feeling the very same way!
I am so excited about this post for a variety of reasons. First off… does anyone listen to the Elvis Duran show in the morning? I tune in on my way to work every single day, and it really is the most entertaining program on the radio, I love starting my mornings with that crew!
Back in December or so everyone on the show was tasting and raving about these amazing cupcakes and truffles! They mentioned that she sold her truffles online and I was dying to check them out. Once at a computer, I immediately found her website and looked through all of the delicious treats she had available. I hate to admit that I never ended up ordering any… but was thrilled when I heard she was opening up a shop in Avon, CT…which happened to be very close to where I currently live.
I’d been following Miriam, the owner/designer/baker extrordinaire on Twitter and Facebook for a while now and have been completely blown away by the legitimate food porn that she creates and posts on a daily basis.
Taste by Spellbound has officially been opened for less than a month, and I finally made the trip to check it out!
I must say, I truly admire Miriam for a number of reasons…
1- She has a kick a** style. Holy moly, this girl has such a unique but elegant/feminine look…not to mention she has mastered the perfect top knot/ bun!
2-She is so ambitious, a risk taker, and go-getter.
3- She is beyond talented. Let her desserts speak for themselves…you can honestly tell how amazing they are just by looking at them.
I was so glad to finally visit this charming place! Everything was truly delicious and I will surely be back! (I’m dying to get my hands on one of her famous salted caramel cupcakes!)
If you are in Connecticut and looking for some delicious desserts…THIS is the place to go!
