So Cupcake



Cory insisted on cupcakes to be purchased at So Cupcake. I was impressed that he even had a favorite cupcake store. Even through the cupcake craze last year I still never made it into an actual store specializing in gourmet cupcakes TO DIE FOR.
So Cupcakes has a super pink cupcake truck relocating daily around Salt Lake City and all the neighboring cities. WAY CUTE. Check out their Facebook and Twitter for updates.
The October cupcakes were extra spooky ;')
Mini cupcakes $1.25 each or $14 for a mini dozen.
Regular size cupcakes $2.50 each or $26 for a regular size dozen.
Chocolate with Cream Cheese Frosting.
Strawberry Cream Cheese. 
Key Lime. 
Vanilla. 
Red Velvet with Cream Cheese Frosting.  
Carrot Cake.
Great gift boxes for a dozen or half dozen.
Check this place out, around Highland Drive and 3900 South. Cupcakes made fresh every morning.

Mazza at 15th & 15th


My younger bro just bought a house in Sugarhouse down the street from that cute little intersection of 1500 South 1500 East, known by locals as 15th&15th. 
We decided to go to Mazza located directly across the street from Caputos. A storm was threatening our patio dining so we moved inside.
Unlike the Mazza at 9th & 9th, the Mazza at 15th&15th is modest and modest. I think I actually prefer the younger atmosphere and busy artsy interior of the 9th&9th Mazza.
Falafel, $7.50.  Done classic style with a fried patty of garbanzo and fava beans. Hubby got it with tahini sauce on the side. Delicious.
Shawarma, $8.50.  Beef and lamb, tahini, pickled turnips...I did not like this combination at all ;'( Don't get this!

dinner at Linda's



I always get a burst of creative energy and artistic inspiration after a dinner at Linda's. It was just another perfect end-of-summer Park City afternoon and we were headed to Deer Crest for an evening of fabulous home-cooking and beautiful conversation. 
Sheri stabbed together immaculate skewers of organic cherry tomatoes, basil and marinated mozzarella.
Fresh daikon.
Truffle spiced popcorn.
Cocktail napkins by Bad Girl Art are the best ;')
The kitchen is designer's walk through Genesis. We love "The Tree of Life" buffet cabinetry. 
Talk is global, smart, energetic, eclectic, aware, fun... State of Israel? Park City real estate? To ski or to snowboard? Organic chickens sold at Costco?! When did you get back from India? Up and coming local artists? How's China? Oh, those cute grandchildren! Sustainable growth? The temple? Teens? Planet Fitness? Etc., etc. 
Vegetarian Split Pea Soup.
Kosher wine pairings.
Salmon and Dill.
Marinated Duck.
Baked Squash.
Wild Rice.
Romaine Salad.
Neill's duck came out divine! Can't believe I used "divine"to describe duck. I took all the juicy yummy dark parts oozing in moist, tender, succulent, awesome ducky flavors. 
The Farmers' Market squash was baked perfectly with a sprinkle of seasoning and a drizzle of oil. Wild rice was missed with chopped nuts and veggies. Salad was chilled and crisp.
Dessert is always some beautiful decadent cake and chocolate. Heavenly.
Always a beautiful and delicious time here; nourish the mind, soul and tummy :)
We love you, Linda and Neill. xoxo
