Bourbon Molasses Chocolate Pecan Pie

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.  But there is a much lesser known story in Boston’s history.  More specifically, in the North End of Boston (also known as Boston’s Little Italy).

Bourbon Pumpkin Pie

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!

Campfire Treats

Campfire S'mores Brownie Pies on the fire

Earlier this summer my husband discovered a spot in the middle of nowhere New Hampshire to unplug, disconnect, and refresh.  With everything we have going on I was hesitant to book a reservation, but there was only one weekend left with openings for the summer so we did it.  YOU GUYS.  I cannot recommend this enough.  We went to a place called Getaway House. They have locations outside of Boston, New York, and D.C. and it is worth every single penny.

No-Bake Unicorn Pie

Unicorn Pie Crust

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
