I know a lot of people hate Valentine’s Day or think it’s a made-up holiday, but it’s one of my absolute favorites. I find myself defending it year after year as one of the best holidays. Aside from the delicious candy, what’s better than an added excuse to tell people how much you love them? Growing up, Valentine’s Day was the holiday where my mom would hide cards and gifts all over the house and all throughout our stuff so we would find cards and candy all day long. It was the best. It’s a tradition I’ve tried to carry on (as best as it can be in our tiny downtown apartment).
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.

I cannot believe it’s already 2019. 2018 was such a great year. Like any year, it definitely had some big downs, but it also had a lot of ups. I have a lot of high hopes for 2019.

But before Valentine’s day gets here, we have another exciting holiday: Super Bowl Sunday! Super Bowl Sunday is all about beer, football, and food, so I have combined all of those things to bring you the perfect Super Bowl Brownies: Stout Beer Football Brownies.
I didn’t celebrate Christmas growing up. I got my first Christmas tree after I moved in with my best friend when I was in law school. I first celebrated Christmas with my now-husband a year or two into our relationship. I had this picture in my head of what waking up on Christmas morning should be like: wake up, look out the window to see if it had snowed, bake cinnamon rolls (from the tube, of course) and brew coffee while we sit on the floor in our PJs and bathrobes and exchange gifts.

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! Now I know it’s more of a Thanksgiving dessert, but today is a very special occasion for which this recipe would be perfect…not that Pie Thursday wouldn’t be a winning idea! Continue Reading
