Before going to the United States I promised myself I will ease up a little with my diet. I was allowing myself to eat cookies, scones, cornbread and apple pie.
I did research where I could find the best apple pie and Little Pie Company in New York City kept popping up. So after lunch at Ping Seafood I requested my cousin Virgil to take me there.
The place was simple and very unassuming.
Coffee is the perfect partner for pies and muffins.
You can whole pies in 5, 8 or 10 inch sizes or even in slices if you just want to try it.
Naturally I bought their bestseller, sour cream apple walnut pie made with Granny Smith apples.
The pie had super thin slices of apples and it had a creamy texture. The apples remained crisp and it had a slightly tart flavor from the sour cream which was perfectly balanced with the sweetened crunchy walnut topping.
It was definitely the usual American apple pie. It was so worth our trip. I also bought a small Mississippi Mud Pie which was uber chocolatey. It was good too but I loved the apple pie more.

The previous night our friend Victor drove us to Levain’s so I could stock up on my super duper favorite dark chocolate peanut butter cookies. I wrapped my stash and immediately put them in the freezer in Virginia then in Los Angeles. It’s still in my freezer in Manila waiting for me to enjoy them guilt free. Trust me it will still be as good as the day I bought it.
My cousin Sharon bought this huge loaf of banana chocolate chip bread which must have weighed 5 pounds and cost $40 if I remember right.

Oh boy, it was dense yet super moist and studded with lots of chocolate. We had it for breakfast for a couple of days. It was great with coffee.

Nice pictures! I know this is your blog, but I hope you’ll minimize emphasizing about your “diet”– it kinda turns off readers, like me, who don’t really care about “diets”, and just want to eat.. eat… and eat… Looking forward to read your future post!
Leslie , I think you are doing well with your (I won’t say the D word). From your photos it working. I stop (D word) years ago and court calories only. Enjoy all kind of food still just watch calories a day.
You’re right Betty!!
