Dear Food Diary:
It’s that sweet day of the year again. These irresistibly pretty and yummy French treats are FREE this coming Thursday, March 20th.

To celebrate Macaron Day NYC 2014, I’m planning my day around it. There isn’t a Pierre Herme in NYC but these will do. (Laduree isn’t participating)

Go into one of the participating macaron shops listed below and say “I’m here for Macaron Day”. Don’t forget to also purchase a few to take home, portion of the proceeds will benefit City Harvest.

North Brooklyn Farms: Farm to Table Supper Club in Williamsburg

Dear Food Diary:
I didn’t know what to expect when we arrived at North Brooklyn Farms for their first Farm-to-Table Supper Club a few Sundays ago. For one, I’ve never been to this part of Williamsburg and what a surprise it was. A little blooming farm right by the bridge. Their whole concept of bringing the farm to a city setting put a smile on my face.

Delightfully surprised and treated to a lovely night with my girls and a farm fresh meal as we held on to summer.

Starting at 10am next Tuesday, Shake Shack Madison Square Park will be serving these Cronut (the real deal) Hole Concrete for charity. Only 1000 will be sold.

“Butter Caramel frozen custard blended with three delectable Cinnamon Sugar Cronut Holes, and a bonus Cronut Hole on top.”

I haven’t waited in the crazy  line for  cronuts, but this seems like a double “sweeeeeet” deal. I’m sure the lines will be crazy, so see ya there?
