Massachusetts and the winner

Bakery Normand, Northampton, Mass
First, the winner of the giveaway for a copy of Sam the Cooking Guy: Awesome Recipes and Kitchen Shortcuts is… Esther from Ambitious Deliciousness. (Esther, I think Sam would definitely approve of your post about fish tacos with Sriracha mayo.) Thanks, everyone, for entering. Now about the treat in the photo. I forget what they called it, but I’ll call it o.m.g. It’s three amazing cookies stacked up and draped in chocolate. I thought it was three separate cookies at first, but no, this is one solid mass of yum.

I haven’t been traveling much lately, so it’s strange that I was up in the Amherst, Mass area last weekend, and I’m leaving for the IACP conference in Portland, OR tomorrow. My daughter and I took a side trip to Northampton, which is where we found Bakery Normand and the yummy layered-cookie treat. If you’re in the area, definitely stop by.
Judie's, Amherst, Mass
We also met up with Dede Wilson for lunch at Judie’s in Amherst. Five words — gigantic popovers with apple butter. Sorry I didn’t get a photo. Their sweet potato fries are pretty awesome too.

  2. Congratulations to Esther! Those cookies look amazing! I love the idea of three cookies stuck together with chocolate! I there anything more perfect and delicious?I agree with you Justin they should just rename those cookies to O.M.G!
