Nashville Food Truck Friday : Julia’s Bakery

As I started my blog in September 2013 and only became vegan in May 2016, there are several non-vegan posts pre-vegan era.  As an example of how someone can change their path in life drastically, I have made the decision to leave the posts up even though I am ashamed of them.  I hope you will take this example and think on it.  Also, see my animal activism page or travel page on ideas for ethical animal tourism and vegan food around the world.  My inbox is always open should you have questions about changing your lifestyle to better serve animals, our planet, and your own health.

Nashville Food Truck Friday

My first visit to an all-desert food truck = heaven!  I went solo on this trip – partly because Kaleb had to work and partly because Kaleb isn’t a dessert person (what?!).

Julia’s Bakery is a rare food truck – not only in the sense that they are dessert only, but also because they started as a brick & mortar.  Julia’s Homestyle Bakery has been located in Murfreesboro, Tennessee for the better part of a decade – serving the ‘Boro’ with amazing cakes, cheesecakes, pies, brownies, cookies, cupcakes and more.

A few years ago, the owners of Julia’s decided they wanted to expand their market a bit more by investing in a food truck – making it easier to attract customers further out from Murfreesboro – Nashville specifically.  Showing up to many of the multiple food truck events makes Julia’s the perfect treat after eating a meal at one of the other trucks.

I doubled up this day by visiting The Grilled Cheeserie as my meal and then heading to Julia’s Bakery to grab a box of goodies to take home.  What a great decision, I must say.

THE DISPLAY CASE WILL LEAVE YOUR MOUTH WATERING

 My Choice(s) :

        • Red Velvet Cupcake
        • Award-Winning Fudge Pie
        • Strawberry-Basil Mini Cake

        • White Chocolate Chip Cookie

 

 

You’re probably thinking right now – did she really eat all that?!  Yes, yes I did.  Just kidding – I shared some of it.  Not a lot, but some. First of all, red velvet cake is my favorite dessert ever.  Therefore, I’m super picky.  The cream cheese icing has to be just right.  I typically only trust our family’s recipe.  But, I knew I had to give it a go.  It was absolutely amazing.  Just the right amount of richness and sweetness.  I could have eaten many, many more of these things.

KEY LIME MINI-CAKE

 

Fudge pie wouldn’t normally be my thing.  I’m weird – I LOVE sweets but I hate when things are too rich and so I normally can only eat one piece of fudge at a time.  However, these fudge pies are pretty famous.  This recipe has one an award 12 years in a row and the only reason they stopped winning is because they stopped entering.  I will admit, it was pretty amazing.  I ate the entire mini-pie all by myself.

Now, I’m not a key lime pie fan at all so I donated this lovely looking mini-cake to my grandma and she said it was very good.  I’ve never seen a key lime cake done before and they said it was brand-spankin’ new menu item for them.

As soon as I saw there was a cake with basil on it, I wanted to try it just because it was nothing I’ve ever seen before.  It’s one of those things that sounds like it’s so weird that it must be good.  And, it was!

All of the cookies were also fabulous – the simple sugar cookie was my favorite!

The Breakdown:

Favorite Thing : Red Velvet Cupcake, Sugar Cookie

Least Favorite Thing : Chocolate Chewies

Type of Food : All things sweet!
