I love baking. It’s one of my favorite hobbies. But with a full-time job, two animals, a husband, friends, miscellaneous freelance assignments, and a DVR full of TV shows, it doesn’t always happen. Which is why I am beginning my very first “Sweet Tooth Tuesday” without a recipe in hand.
I guess I could say my waist line thanks me, but who I am kidding. When I am in a pinch and need something sweet, there are several shops in Nashville that does the trick. From ice cream to drinks to cookies, this list has you covered for any sweet fix you might need.
- Jenni’s Ice Cream — If you live in Nashville and haven’t visited Jenni’s Ice Cream, you’re doing something wrong. Ice cream, sorbets, frozen yogurt and ice cream sandwiches, there’s practically something for everyone. Might I suggest Sweet Cream Biscuits and Peach Jam or Brambleberry Crisp or Riesling Poached Pear Sorbet?
- Bobbie’s Dairy Dip — I stay loyal to the root beer float at this Nashville landmark. An assortment of sweets, I am sure you can’t go wrong but if it ain’t broke, why fix it?
- Dozen Bakery — This bakery has a mean chocolate chip cookie… and oatmeal raisin cookie… and chocolate silk pie. Located incredibly close to my office, they serve sweets, Crema coffee and lunch. It’s a beautiful thing.
- Crumb de la Crumb — Sweets aren’t restricted to baked goods or ice cream. This place has a vanilla lemonade that I often dream about. Great breakfast food, bottomless coffee and a sweet lemonade is a great way to start your day. Oh, and they bake beautiful wedding cakes. Swoon!
The sweets don’t stop there. Nashville is a mecca for great food of all kinds. I’ve lived here for three and a half years and I haven’t even scratched the surface of places to eat.
