I like to let my readers know of good places to eat as well as great historic spots to visit. Although probably none of us should be hanging out around bakery shops, I felt I had a right to a treat after I completed my Jury Duty in Camden today. So, I stopped in at Desserts by Design in Audubon.
Now don't think it is just a place to get yourself something. It is a wonderful place to buy a gift! St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner, so drop in for something with a bit of green sprinkle on it. Although I usually recommend Duffy's for Easter bunnies or that St. Patrick's Day staple, Irish Potatoes. Valentine's Day may be over for this year, but keep Desserts by Design in mind for next year and for all the holidays! The Christmas cookie baking friends I used to have no longer bake their specialties because everyone is on a diet or has special dietary requirements, so spoil the contemporary cookie bereft and buy Christmas cookies at Desserts by Design.
In case you are wondering, I didn't get anything for free for doing this. I won't say I can't be bought, but no one has, as yet, tried to buy my good opinion. It was only that I just finished eating my treat and I wanted to share it with you! And I can tell myself that I bought the dessert for my blog!
Hooray, Jury Duty is over for another 3 years. I don't know why it is such a burdensome experience for me but I dread it days in advance. Once I'm there, I'm fine. I make friends, I read. I watch the movie that reminds us all what a privilege it is to live in a land where we have such rights as a jury of our peers. And when it is over, I swell with pride that I did my duty and didn't try to get out if it by some selfish chicanery. Aside from the pride, I then reward myself with a treat. There is a table and chairs and a coffee machine at Desserts by Design, so if you want to stop in to try something (like on a date for example) what a fun thing to do.
