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!

But this recipe will not let you down. It is so easy, only 4 ingredients, and super delicious! Continue Reading
Here in Boston we’re expecting our third nor’easter in a row this week. The first one was all rain, the next one was a few inches of snow, so who knows what to expect this week!

These Piña Colada Upside Down Cupcakes are not Passover friendly (check out my Passover cookie cake inspired by Molly Yeh!), but they are super delicious and they just scream spring! Continue Reading
Well, they say March comes in like a lion, and it sure does! That Nor’easter hit Boston hard. We didn’t get any snow here, but we got a lot of rain and wind and there was a lot of flooding. I’m holding out hope that it only goes up from here. March means it’s almost spring. March also means it’s time to start thinking about St. Patrick’s Day and I’m super excited about this recipe. This is a super easy recipe for Pots o’ Gold.
