sweetness goodness

Man, where have I been! It’s been crazy busy around here, and it seems like more and more of the house is falling into chaos. I keep telling myself it’s all part of the adventure! There’s some big stuff happening on the superbuzzy front, too, including a big shop update in a couple days.
But you know what helps get me through all the craziness? Sugar. I can’t really go a day without having a sweet treat, and I know I should have a bit more self control, since my metabolism is slowing down, but I really, really love sweets.

I got these treats from a new bakery the other day. Sweetness Bakery and Cafe is located in SE Portland on 52nd Avenue, between Powell and Foster. It’s a funny little location, but it’s worth seeking out. Owned by a mother-and-daughter (I love that) team, the bakery cranks out tasty little pastries. Daughter Kay is a knitter as well as a baker! The blueberry-peach danishes in the photo? Melissa declared that it was one of the best things she had ever eaten. Sugar up, people.

    what’s worse: i’ve been daydreaming about that thing.
    i was driving along and worrying about what’s going to happen when blueberries and nectarines are no longer in season– what are they going to do then?? how will they make it taste so good?? and then i remembered that there is still an apple and a pear danish season so i calmed down a bit.

    Thank you for sharing your sugar love; I’m right there with you. I find out about all the tasty treats in PDX through your blog. So really, you’re performing a public service! ;-P

  4. I drove by Sweetness Bakery the other day and wondered how good they were. Looks fantastic! :)

    You must be pregnant. Kidding! When I was pregnant I ate sweets/pastries for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I LOVED IT!!

    I can’t wait to see your big shop update @ Superbuzzy!
    BTW, do check out my blog and read about Krystal and Alec, add a link to your blog, etc. I could really use your help and support on this one.

    Oh they look divine. My favourite bakery seems to be shut every time i walk by these days – i think it’s the sugar police trying to make sure my teeth stay in my head! :)

    I’m a longtime lurker, and I just wanted to express my approval of Superbuzzy. I’m making a bunch of clothes to travel in (I’m going to live in S

    Mariko, thanks for the great write-up! It was so nice to finally meet you rather than just reading your blog! Hopefully we’ll see you soon.
    And Melissa, there will continue to be delicious danish even into the fall. I’m thinking pear-ginger-creamcheese…

    I’m glad you made up with your brother and the blog is back (although I must admit the messages he was putting up while you were gone were pretty hilarious).

    Sweetness Bakery may be dangerous for us to know about but thank you for passing it on.
    Honestly all of you talk about food is great but it makes me think I need to go out for a run or something….. but instead I will try the new bakery in town.
