Boston is one of the most historical cities in the U.S. and as you walk through the city it is so apparent. There are so many historical sites. So many, in fact, that there is a walking trail you can follow through the city to hit some of the biggest historical spots. There’s the Boston Tea Party, and Paul Revere, and the Boston Massacre. There’s the Bunker Hill Monument, the U.S.S. Constitution, and the Boston Common. There’s Harvard University and Fenway Park. Every single thing in Boston has quite a history.

We’re right in the midst of the chaos that is the holiday season! It is such a fun time of year, but I always feel like I’m falling behind on everything! Which is why I am here, in December, after you’re probably all burnt out on pumpkin pie, to bring you a brand new pumpkin pie recipe!

It’s (once again) been a while since I’ve given you a new recipe, so I’m coming back strong with an easy, no-bake recipe: Unicorn Pie! Kellogg’s makes a vanilla cupcake flavored cereal that they call Unicorn cereal. It is a limited edition flavor, and as far as I knew, it was only available at the Kellogg’s store in New York. Then one day, I’m just minding my own business walking through BJ’s (it’s the New England equivalent of Sam’s Club) and I see a huge box of Unicorn Cereal! It’s probably the equivalent of two family size boxes. I don’t really need that much Unicorn cereal, but it was my only option so I went with it. Continue Reading
Can you believe it’s already May?! April flew by without me bringing you a single recipe. So here I am, in May, asking you to forgive me by sharing with you what is quite possibly one of my favorite recipes yet. This Lavender Lemon Meringue Pie looks and tastes perfect for spring, and makes an ideal Mother’s Day treat!
