Your little’s relationship with produce is less than fruitful. If it’s not juiced, pouched, or rolled up, she’s not interested.
But we have a way to stamp out the problem once and for all.
It just takes a little creativity — and a lot of paint. Turn apples into lunchtime art, celery into floral masterpieces, and potatoes into just about anything at all. Slice, dip, stamp, and play.
We’re sure they’ll fall for it.
First came the muffin top (thanks, tight jeans). Then came the muffin top (sheer genius).
And now, for the first time ever, we bring you — drumroll, please — the coffee cake top, in cookie form, as created by Milton Point Sweets in Rye, New York.
In today’s video, we get to know adorable Larraine Nathanson, the ad exec-turned-baker behind the treats, and see the kitchen where the magic began.
Whether you have a hankering for the original CrumbDaddies, CrumbMamas (with chocolate and caramel), or any of the bakery’s other offerings, you won’t be disappointed.
Except for the fact they don’t offer elastic-waist pants.

Sure, you could commission a custom designer dress — and risk being homeless once you get the bill.
Or you could go to Albertine Workspace, where charming owner/genius Kyung Lee is churning out beautiful bespoke pieces at off-the-rack prices.
In our latest video, Lee takes us through the whole process — from picking out styles and fabrics to trying on (and loving) the final product.
She knows what looks good and won’t lead you astray (seriously, you’ll want her to be your best friend). Plus, she’s been known to break out prosecco from time to time.
And you won’t have to drink it from a brown paper bag.
Albertine Workspace, 19 Christopher Street, between Greenwich Avenue and Waverly Place (212-924-8515).
Some of our best memories — or lack thereof — stem from tequila.
In keeping with the trend, we’re amped for Mayahuel, the new Mexican bar and restaurant from the East 6th Street gang (Death & Co, The Bourgeois Pig).
We got the scoop from co-owner Phil Ward — and maybe a little too much free high-end mezcal.
No body shots made the cut (it’s tequila way too nice for that kind of behavior).
Mayahuel, 304 East 6th Street, between First and Second Avenues.

Thirsty for more? Everyone from lonesome cowpokes to the local sheriff will be saddling up to the bar at Dutch Kills, a 19th-century-style saloon in the hinterlands of Long Island City. It’s finally opening tonight (9 p.m.!) with spirits, cocktails over hand-cut ice, and cold brews on tap — served from a large oak bar and totaled on a 1913 model cash register. Neighborhood fave Sage General Store provides the organic pub fare. Go on and mosey along. Dutch Kills, 27-24 Jackson Avenue, at Dutch Kills Street, Long Island City (718-383-2724).
Warning: The video you are about to see contains subject matter that may cause uncontrollable cravings and drooling.
We blame — and credit — Daniel Sklaar, the charming South African-turned-Brooklynite behind Fine & Raw Chocolate, who kindly agreed to take us behind the scenes as he makes his legendary bonbons.
It’s what we like to call raw footage.

They’re smart; they’re talented; they’ve got refined edge. Quite honestly: They’re foxy.

Video may have killed the radio star, but let’s hope it doesn’t do the same for the daily online newsletter (fingers seriously crossed).
Without further ado, we present our first DailyCandy Video: a look at one of our favorite new designers, Alison Lewis, and her adorable spring collection.
