Last Friday, my friend Crystal made homemade cinnamon buns. I ate one, then two, and couldn’t resist another. It’s great having a friend who is an “amateur gourmet chef.” She delights her family and friends whenever she has time from her busy photography business.
There we were catching up on her daily activities for her darling daughter Jade; while drinking coffee and her watching me smile—each time I reached for another bun. Soon, Crystal had to rush off to pick-up Jade from school, and I sauntered to the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building on Fifth Avenue.
On Saturday, December 14th, it was a grey, wintery, snowy afternoon. I went walking with the wind, watching children play in Central Park, and dogs running, rolling in a snowman’s heaven. And, as I turned towards Broadway, I remembered what I liked about the Upper West Side: Silver Moon Bakery (2740 Broadway, New York, NY 10025). They sell delicious coffee; they make mouthwatering cakes and artisan breads; and they create golden, light-baked cinnamon buns.
The sky had changed to dark clouds, when I trekked to the train station. Still, I was the happiest with my coffee and cinnamon bun in hand.
