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).

Stout Beer Football Brownies

Stout Beer Football Super Bowl Brownies

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. It seems like as soon as January 1st hit, the stores were covered in pink and red and Valentine’s day was everywhere.  And I love Valentine’s day.  It’s one of my favorite holidays!  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.

Hot Cocoa Rolls

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.

Chocolate Grits

Since I’m going to be traveling while you’re reading this, I thought I would share a story with you about my last trip.  Last month I went home to Louisville. While there my husband and I indulged in all the delicious food we missed now that we live in the northeast. It may surprise you, but Lonely Planet named Kentucky a top U.S. destination for 2018!

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
