Provo Bakery

I went to the Provo Bakery for the first time yesterday and may I say I was blown away. The selection wasn't huge but it was enough of a selection to give me a good choice of really yummy looking desserts. I went with a raspberry tart cookie thing (I need to ask what they call it) which was to die for and a chocolate brownie that I shared with one of my nieces (and by share I mean I had 1 bite before she took it and shoved it in her mouth). I also ordered a cake for a b-day party tomorrow and have really high hopes for it (I'll let you know later how it turns out). I haven't yet tried the donuts but I hear that they are the real highlight of the bakery.

The thing I don't understand is how I have lived in this area for years and years and years but I've never been to this bakery--then again I spent my youth in this area (Utah Valley) and didn't even hear about EFY until I was a freshman in college--I must just be out of the loop. I think I need to do a better job of getting out and about in my local area. I mean really, when I travel I research a place to death so that I know exactly where I want to go and eat but when it comes to my hometown area I know so little. Why do we do that?

Don't feel bad. When I read the title for your post I thought "what bakery?" I had no idea either, but you can bet that I am going to find this place! I know that I was born in this area and still know very little about the fun stuff to do. I did take my family to the Children's Museum in SL (I think it is offically called the Discovery something or other) last week and they LOVED it. It was a little pricey but well worth it. This was our second time-the first time we stayed the whole day and really got our money's worth. I would love to hear about any other things you find around here.

I haven't been to the Children's Museum in SL yet so it is good to hear that it is a good one.

Yea, I've never heard of it either. But it sounds so yummy. I feel like Provo and Orem have changed so much since we graduated.
