Sweet Tooth

Christmas day is here, the most wonderful day of the year! The halls are all decked and I’m feeling jolly because I’ve been looking forward to this day for so long. The whole family is on their way to Alexan Auburn Lakes luxury apartments and we’re going to have a day full of fun, food and festivities.

The pork tenderloin has already been seasoned and is ready to pop in the oven later, but there will be plenty of pigging out during the day. I picked up tasty treats from bakeries around town to give my relatives a taste of Spring, Texas. Cookies, pastries, you name it, I bought it. There will be no going hungry here today.

If losing weight isn’t one of your upcoming resolutions, check out these local spots for some delicious desserts.

Heather's Peace of Cakes specializes in cupcakes in a wide variety of flavors. I picked up a variety of their winter flavors, Let it Snow Cocoa, Christmas Canoli and Holiday Egg Nog. My favorite flavor is the Strawberry Surprise, served on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

Rao's Bakery is my local go to for king cakes. It’s not New Orleans but it’s pretty close. It’s expensive (but worth it) to have one shipped from Manny Randazzo's in Metairie. Tradition says whoever finds the baby buys the next king cake. I owe a few.

Last but not least, Michael's Cookie Jar is a hike but totally worth the drive. Their cookies are made from scratch and can be customized to your favorite flavors. The fudge ones are absolute perfection with a cold glass of milk.

So if you haven’t eaten enough this holiday season, check out these area bakeries. And remember, Alexan Auburn Lakes has a state-of-the-art athletic club so you can always burn off those calories later!
