Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r I am not sure why I struggled with writing this article so much. I think it is because there are so many great places to grab a quick bite to eat. I wanted to expand my horizons and share places that I haven’t reviewed before and that I love. But there are so many of them. Plus, I got the ok to expand further north to Provo and that opens up a lot of options. So here you go.r

1. Kolaches at Hruska’s Kolachesr434 W Center St, Provo, Utah

rI am in love with Kolaches. They are the perfect soft roll breakfast treat. There are fruit ones like my favorite, raspberry and blueberry with cream cheese. It is almost like biting into a pie that is a roll but like a doughnut. You have to try it. They don’t only do fruit, they also do savory ones like bacon, egg, and cheese or ham, egg, and cheese. They have other flavors too like pork, chicken, etc.rI love to go on Saturday mornings. They have this great seating area outside that is shaded by other buildings. When you buy a kolache on Saturday morning, you can get a buy one get one free book at Pioneer Book. Then you can head over to the Provo Farmer’s Market. Perfect morning.r

2. Cinnamon Roll at Dugout in Spanish Forkr866 Main St, Spanish Fork, UT 84660

rI love cinnamon rolls. Like a lot. I have tried to make my own cinnamon rolls and they are pretty much hockey pucks. Being able to make a light, fluffy, delicious cinnamon roll is my dream. Since I haven’t figured it out, I rely on the Dugout, a gas station in Spanish Fork. They have AMAZING fountain drinks with great pebble ice and these insane cinnamon rolls. So they are HUGE. They give you a to go box and you have to cram the roll in there. We honestly split it in half because it is so big. It is bursting with cinnamon and has this sweet creamy frosting. They are homemade, as in a lady comes in every night and makes the dough and then bakes it early in the morning. Unreal.r

3. Bruges Waffles and Frittesr42 W Center St, Provo, Utah, UT 84601

rSo Tuesday is $2 Tuesday at Bruges Waffles and Frites. So you can either get their crazy delicious hot fresh fries with your choice of delicious dipping sauces: two most popular are andalousu (similar to fry sauce with more spice) or green (sour cream and onion chips). OR you can get a traditional Bruges Waffle (think Waffle Love style) with a heavy dollop of whipped cream.r

4. Chips and Salsa at Joe Bandidosr1435 N Main St, Springville, UT 84663

rOk. I know everyone has their chips and salsa place and they are pretty dedicated to their place. Joe Bandidos has always been a favorite of mine. Their chips are served hot and fresh and have the right amount of salt. Their salsa is super fresh and has just the right amount of spice. Mouth is watering just thinking about it. I love to go there before holiday celebrations and pick up a huge bag of chips and a tub of salsa. Totally makes my day.

5. Rockwell’s Old Fashioned Ice Creamr43 North University Ave. Provo

rI love ice cream. Growing up we had this place called Country Boy Dairy where they made rich, creamy delicious ice cream. I love that homemade, local ice cream. It just tastes better. When I found Rockwell I was overwhelmed with food anticipation. Not sure if that is a word but I walked in and saw bakery treats, flavored ice cream cones, and their ice cream menu and I knew I found a new favorite. So my favorite thing to do is get a brownie or cookie bar, have them warm it up and serve it a la mode. So a melty brownie topped with Smores. They have new flavors each week and I follow them on Facebook and plan my trips to Provo accordingly.rI wanted to do ten but there is too much to say! I am glad that I got to introduce you to a few of my favorite places in Provo and a few local favorites. I would love to know your favorites. Email me at amybairdwrites@gmail.com.
