Holy Crapoli!! I forgot to put this post up!

Well in any case, heres a review for ya on MILK!! Part Cafe, Part Ice Cream Shop, Part me crazy, but I usually like these separate....But Milk actually proved me wrong somewhat.

I have been hearing about this place for a while now and my friend Yoohoo even brought me a menu. And the menu looked awesome so I was very excited to go. But now that I work in Burbank and not WestHO, going to Beverly for lunch is too much of a trip. Actually going to that area of Beverly at any time is too much of a trip! So I had not been able to partake of it yet. Then luckily this past sunday, Mr. Phi(boyfriend) and I were coming back from the Beverly Hills Farmers Market. We had made the trip out to see Domenico, famed Sun dried tomato Man from The Cheese Store of Beverly Hills. He was making his market debut and I had to be there to get some of his yummy tapenades and of course tomatoes! But this is another story entirely...

So we took Beverly back and we passed MILK. After a small plea to Mr.Phi to pull over, (Sadly he doesn't share my sweet tooth except for Brownies....) I found myself in MILK.

It was a very cute establishment. I love the logo and I love a simple bakery name. There were many items that were homemade for sale around the shop. It was fairly early, so most people were eating breakfast, but I had already had my chilequiles at farmers. So dessert was the only item on my mind!

This trip was not about the ice cream at all and was all about the baked goods. So I didn't take a good look at the ice cream display. It looked more like the style of a gelato display. I did take a very long glance at their homemade ice cream bars that had a very warming, clumsy homemade style to them. Also, I had heard before that their ice cream bon bons were a steal at 25 cents and feeling like a fool to not atleast get a taste of their ice cream I ordered two. A mint chocolate and a Berry Vanilla. Both were deliscious and I got to gobble down both myself. Mr.Phi is not a morning person, so he doesn't really start eating till around 3pm. He is such a fool, but maybe this is good because I am notoriously food greedy. muhahahaa

Next I had to start deciding on the pastries and other savory items to get. I always have to try everything that peaks my interest. And besides, you never know when will be the next time you will be able to venture out a certain way in Los Angeles. But they seemed to be very used to this type of hunger there. And anyway, I was in a hurry to get cold Farmers items home in my car!

I immediately got a piece of the Blue Velvet Cake. Is there a sauce that comes with it? I had heard there possibly was one, but maybe they do not offer it if you take it to go?

Well I will have to stop there, because that is where I stopped writing. lol Plus I can't find where I had put my pictures because its been so long ago!

But I think thats ok because all I really remember about this place is the Blue Velvet Cake. It has a very unique taste to it. Reminds me of "licking the bowl from when my mother made blueberry muffins" taste! I would recommend it but to warn you, it turns your poo blue!! No lie, but I would eat it again. One friend who I took to eat it called me at 3am just to tell me that her poop had turned blue. So if you would like some interesting stories as well I definitely suggest this cake.

I used some pictures from online since I could not find mine, but here is a comic about it.

I wish my toilet was really shaped like that....

Valentine from Deluscious inspires local Town SweetHeart to start Food Blog!!

Wow. So my sweet patootie Mister PHI(FEE) put the final sprinkle on the cupcake. In other dessert terms, he got me to FINALLY start a food blog.

What is the inspiration you may ask??? Well it was his valentines gift to me. A delicious, or dare I say Deluscious box of Cookies... And I will go even further by saying the limited edition Deluscious Valentine's edition! Ha-cha girls & boys!!!

A buzz at the door and a guy wearing a chef outfit (thats how friggin fresh they are, no time to change to deliver!) handed me over the box of cookies and a old timey container of milk.
"Happy Valentines Day" he said as I replied "Wowza!"

But what the h-e-dubble-hockey-sticks is so special about this edition you may ask. Well guess what you get?!

-3 chocolate chip
-2 chocolate bing cherry

-3 s’mores brownies, made with three different kinds of dark chocolate, filled with
mounds of hand-made marshmallow and all on top of a graham cracker crust

- and -
4 heart-shaped cookies:
-1 heart-shaped red velvet cookie filled with buttercream and premium white
chocolate, topped with bittersweet chocolate and a hand-carved white chocolate

-3 heart-shaped white chocolate macadamia nut cranberry, drizzled with creamy white



Chocolate Bing Cherry is my absolute favorite cookie flavor. Just the combination of the fruit and chocolate is tantalizing. This is a couture cookie and is not usually available. If it is, do yourself a favor and ORDER IT IMMEDIATELY!

The S'more Brownie really did taste just like it sounded. I think if I was more of a s'more fan, I might have cried over it. It was pretty exciting to try a brownie from Deluscious and I'm always impressed when anyone makes their own marshmallows. Because thats the only way I like marshmallows.
I hope they start offering brownies regularly!
Also, it reminded me of my favorite flavor of Jeni's Ice Cream. I think it was Chocolate Peanut Butter Marshmallow Sundae?(I haven't seen it available in a couple of years) The chocolate sauce and marshmallows were made by Jeni and they got the peanut butter from a local friend. Jeni's actually had an excellent Valentine Gift available, too.

Now on to my FAVORITE COOKIE and it is a sin that they only give you one...
Red Velvet Heart!
OMG... Immediately after I took the foto, I shoved it into my mouth and took a huge bite. The buttercream & white chocolate in the middle is the perfect creamy consistency. The Red Velvet was moist but I think could of been moister. But the middle and chocolate on top made up for it. lol I ate the hand carved white chocolate heart in 1 bite of the cookie. 30 secs to munch it down and I wondered how long to carve? They should definitely put these red velvet cookies on the regular cookie list. But I can understand cuz a lot of work does go into these cookies.
The white chocolate macadamia nut cranberry cookies were very yummy too. Too bad I'm not a big fan of white chocolate and too lucky my best friend is. She will enjoy these much more than me. Thats why me and Ev are meant to be. I love dark chocolate and she loves white chocolate. No need to share. rofl
And finally, you really just can never go wrong with chocolate chip.

Unfortunately and fortunately these came around lunchtime. So I just tried all the different flavors the rest of the day, until I went into sugar shock and had to quickly eat a salad before I went crazzzyyyyyy.

So I definitely recommend a gift of Deluscious cookies & milk for your BFF or secret luver!
