Hungry Hearts Cupcakes and PDX

Have you seen that part on Portlandia that takes place at a feminist book store? When we tracked down the Hungry Hearts Cupcakes truck (@HHcupcakes on twitter) it happened to be smack dab in front of In Other Words bookstore, or better known on the show as Women & Women First bookstore. If you haven't seen Portlandia yet... I insist. It is a comedy masterpiece.

We ended up choosing the Red Velvet, the Dark Chocolate with dolce de leche frosting and Maldon sea salt, the Almond Joy chocolate cupcake with almond frosting and coconut flakes and the Lemon Drop with fresh lemon curd and wilberry frosting.

Later on in the trip I was so excited when I noticed Black and White cookies through the window at Lovejoy Bakers in the Pearl District. I B lined it straight for the counter and ordered one. I eat mass quantities of these when we are in NY but I've never seen them out here. My family back east all think I am crazy for loving these cookies as much as I do. I like them so much that they were served at our wedding in NY. Lovejoy did a delicious take on the classic cookie but it just wasn't the same as the ones that I've been eating since I was little.

I'm so glad Stacy! "They" say you are supposed to focus on a theme with your blog but anyone who knows me knows that I love food way more than I love fashion. These posts gots ta happen sometimes. Good to know that they are getting enjoyed.

Hope you two get to visit portland sometime. It is such a great city.

I don't live in the state anymore, but I did for 17 years (Port Townsend, and a few other places).

When I was younger, the Aldrich's grocery in PT itself used to sell cookies just like the B&W's, but they also sold Afterschool Cookies. Delicious.. Haven't been able to find them since, even out in WA.
