Welcome to The Tart Tart, my not-so-tart take on food, writing, and photography. I decided to start up this sucker after repeated nagging from Chris, my fiance, who cannot understand why the sight of a farmer’s market would send me into ecstatic convulsions (okay, total overstatement. I can be quite the histrionic at times).With that said, my interests, though chiefly in food, also span fashion, design, literature, and photography. So don’t mind the seemingly non sequitur odds and ends I toss in posts at times.

We couldn’t leave Vegas without getting a little some for our daughter, Sweet Pea.  She loves jelly beans, so we stopped at the Sugar Factory to check out what they had.  I had never been in one before.

They had lots of jelly bean flavors to choose from and they were Jelly Belly, her favorite kind.  Don’t mind the spider, he was just hanging around. 

We found a cute Hello Kitty bucket and filled it up with jelly beans.  It weighed a ton.  I knew her face would light up when she saw it.  Sometimes you have forget about the dentist bills and just let your kids be kids.  As we know, that time in your life lasts such a short time.  Enjoy it while you can!

Mommy found a treat of her own that day.  There were all these cute cupcakes, I just had to take one with me.  I chose the Reese’s Cupcake because I love Reese’s Pieces.  It looked like a winner.

I took it back to the hotel to eat while I was packing.  The overall flavor of the cupcake was spot on with a Reese’s Pieces, however I was a little disappointed in the dryness of the cake itself.  I like moist cupcake and this just didn’t do it for me.  Oh well, I will have to try to create my own version one day.
