Nostalgia in a Gift Basket at Grandma's Cheesecake Sandwiches

Obviously, I'm a sucker for nostalgia. I've built a whole business around sharing one singular taste of my grandmother Raphaella's famous cheesecake, brought into the modern world in the form of a handheld, easy to eat yet deeply, soul satisfying cheesecake sandwich.  One foot in the past, one foot in the future. That's me. I think about this, sometimes, when I have a rare moment to catch my breath, in the midst of the industrial ovens of my Whitestone, New York commercial kitchen, surrounded by freezers, stacks of molds, giant cases of cream cheese, enveloped in the rich sweet smell of melting chocolate and baked butter and sugar, the tang of fresh cut fruit and the base note of cardboard from...

Traveling...we're in LaGuardia Airport

We've all been feeling cooped up, and as all those delayed family reunions and long-awaited vacations finally get off the ground, it's exciting and maybe, to be honest, a little nerve-wracking. Take heart, there's comfort to be had...at least if you're flying out of LaGuardia, where there are Grandma's Cheesecake Sandwiches available at two Bowery Bay locations in the terminal now. Look for us, and enjoy a moment of sweet escape right there in the terminal, or even better, take a little bit of my Grandma Raphaella's home-baked love with you onto the plane. You won't need a fork or a plate to enjoy the creamy deliciousness of cheesecake sandwiched between two soft sweet cookies, but be warned; you might...

Mother's Day Cheesecake Sandwiches from one Mother to another.

Mother's Day. You could do flowers, you could do chocolate. Mom will appreciate anything you give her, because, she's Mom. But what about a gift from one mother's heart to another?

I'm suggesting you let my Grandmother Raphaella, matriarch of the family and creator of masterful holiday lasagnas and cheesecakes, speak straight to your mother's own heart through her own creamy, perfected cheesecake recipe, moderized in sandwich form for your Mom to enjoy with no fuss, no muss, and no dishes to clean up after! Now that's a gift a Mom will appreciate! On Goldbelly.com we're featuring a...

Summer Is Coming...

Summer is coming, which means it’s time to break out (and smoosh, and blend, and strain) the FRUIT! Our matcha was a big hit for St. Patrick’s day (check us out on Goldbelly) and while we always keep our favorites around (here’s looking at you, Classic and Chocolate Chip) it’s always fun here in our nut-free kitchen whipping up seasonal delights.  So we’re mashing the Mangoes, we’re crushing the Coconuts, and we’re pureeing the Peaches to bring you fresh, lively summer flavors. Inspired by the cherry trees blooming in D.C.? Celebrate with our Cherry flavor, sandwiched between two vanilla cookies. Want something light and lively? Dive into our Lemonade. Recall those lovely, drippy 50-50 bars (half orange, half cream) or...
