Michele's most famous sweets, her truffles, come in flavors as varied as amaretto, lemon zest, and pistachio butterscotch (a truffle map can be seen here). Truffle boxes allow customers to mix and match desired chocolaty bites, from as few as four ($10.35) to as many as 20 ($47). Also available are candy bars ($2 apiece), with flavors such as almond coconut and walnut fudge, as well as assorted sweet morsels such as fudge ($3) and peanut brittle ($5.95)—all sure to make babies smile before weeping as adults greedily steal the irresistible candy away.

With more than 80 menu items hailing from stir-fried, curried, and benoodled disciplines, Rice runs the gamut of authentic Thai fare, often infusing signature dishes and specialties with its own twist. The wonton pad Thai hurls tradition out the window and into a passing tornado by tossing crispy wontons into a Thai stand-by ($11), while the lemongrass chicken, a house specialty, bathes delicately flavored grilled poultry in a luxurious peanut sauce coating ($9.50). The Indian-style gang mussamun curry, with potato, carrots, onions, and peanuts, stows away a spicy kick just like the other dishes of its kind, while scrumptious stir-fries range from the wholesome veggies delight to the decadent spicy cashew nut. Most stir-fries, curries, fried rice, and noodle dishes come with a choice of pork, chicken, beef, or tofu ($9), although diners can upgrade to shrimp, squid, and scallop ($10.50), or a combination of seafood ($13.50) rivaling the regal bounty of Poseidon's fly rod.

The hills above Milwaukie bear many secrets, including a turn-of-the-century estate called Amadeus Manor with sloping roofs, heavy wood doors, and stunning views of the Willamette River and Portland skyline. This hidden gem—a three-story stone manor built in 1921—emerges from the bowed limbs of enormous trees and shrubbery, welcoming people inside for a romantic dinner of continental cuisine.

Its menu is culled from European classics, with a focus on the owner's home country, Austria. For the schnitzel Amadeus, the chefs trim pork tenderloin by hand, and for the steak au poivre Madagascar, they paint a grilled new york strip steak in a peppercorn cognac demi glace and pair it with mango chutney. Dinners sweetly conclude with a rotating menu of desserts made in house and a cup of house coffee served with luscious clotted cream.

Guests linger over the meals at tables set with fresh flowers while nearby, a fire roars in a stone hearth. Dusk is particularly enchanting when the setting sun illuminates iron-framed windows and the manor's glittering chandeliers twinkle in the soft pink light.

More than 50 years go, Mike Ilitch was poised for major-league glory. An up-and-coming shortstop for the Detroit Tigers, his baseball finesse was blossoming when an injury derailed his sports career. But although the wound stunted his athletic aspirations, it steered him toward a new path, and on May 8, 1959, he and his wife opened the first Little Caesars location, a then-unheard-of carry-out-only joint. The career shift and novel technique eventually proved triumphant. Today, the pizzeria's iconic, toga-clad mascot adorns storefronts on five continents. In each shop, staffers forge the signature Hot-N-Ready pizza, a freshly baked pizza designed for instant pickup, and warm, garlicky Crazy bread. With a storied half century under their belt, Mike Ilitch and his family strive to give back, supporting local organizations and creating their own charitable programs.

Bakers mix fresh chopped peaches into a small batch of vanilla cupcake batter.

This handheld Peach Cobbler is just one of the many flavors that Monkeycakes Bakery creates from scratch every day. Their bakers frost each cupcake to-order, putting the finishing touches on lime-infused Cinco De Mayo or blueberry cheesecake: a moist pound cake with a blueberry-cheesecake center. Reaching out to as many sweet teeth as possible, Monkeycakes Bakery creates gluten-free and vegan options, and they'll deliver all treats directly to a customer's home drive-thru window.
