Erin Go Bragh & All That

St. Patrick's Day Doughnut
If you've been following my Instagram, you know it's a delicious month in my world. First, a trip to Burlington, Vermont to visit Ben & Jerry's--yes, I will post about it--and now I'm in New Orleans doing New Orleanian things. But before I left, I did get to celebrate a little bit of St. Patrick's Day!

Well, I should be celebrating it plenty today, but it probably won't involve green frosted doughnuts. A friend & I stopped by Peter Pan late Saturday afternoon and I just couldn't not get one, even though I had had more than my fill of ice cream and knew that beignets were in my future. It's just SO PRETTY! Knowing Peter Pan, these beauties will be around all day, so go celebrate!

Happy Pi Day!

Pies Are Round No, Pies Are Squared
Happy Pi Day friends! Today is the one day the math nerds and food nerds can agree upon. Today is a day for pie and I plan on eating as much pie as possible starting at breakfast...

Pie for breakfast?! Yes, pie for breakfast. And where better to get pie for breakfast than Four & Twenty Blackbirds at either their 3rd avenue shop or their BRAND new cafe inside the Brooklyn Public Library main branch. Pie and books, what a delicious combo.

Another great spot to hit for pie for breakfast? Robicelli's where from 8am 'til 7pm (or until they sell out), they'll be celebrating Pi Day by selling slices of pie for only $3.14! They will have apple crumb, chocolate cream, sweet potato with honey whiskey butterscotch, Creamsicle, blueberry panna cotta, and chocolate crunchie. Check out their tumblr for more info and to stay up to date on their offerings. Go forth and eat pie!
