Holy Cannoli!

Have you ever had cannoli? For those of you that don’t know, cannoli are a traditional Sicilian pastry dessert that consists of a fried tube of dough with a sweetened, creamy, ricotta filling. The filling can be flavored, sometimes crushed nuts or chocolate chips are added to the sides, and then the entire dessert is dusted with powdered sugar. Yum! I had a dream last night that the world was going into a panic about the world ending, and in my dream I made sure to find a pastry shop that sold cannoli so I could have one last taste before utter chaos broke loose (yes, my subconscious priorities seem a little skewed…)!

Boston: Samuel Adams Brewery Tour

While visiting Boston, we just knew we had to make a trip out to the Sam Adams Brewery! We were running late but luckily, we were able to make it to the last tour of the day at 3pm!

From finishing my vacation (what a hard life, right?) to catching up on some freelance work, to getting over a cold (which I think caused me to bruise a rib or two from coughing so much!!!), and to well, just life, I have put blogging on the back burner. But, ohhh, how I’ve missed it! So, here continues the series from my travels to the beautiful (and delicious) East Coast!!! (This is part 4 out of 6 of the series. Normal posts will resume in a couple days!) ——————————————– Our first day in Cambridge, we rode The T out to Boston to visit Quincy Market. Now, before my dearest cousin arranged our itinerary in this quaint city, I had never heard of Quincy Market. Apparently, it’s a place [Continue Reading…]
