Missed Confections: Love Letters to Sweet Things from My Past

"Life is a journey. Not a destination." But then again, Ralph Waldo Emerson was probably eating pretty crappy food in the 1880s. When I travel, it's not the museums or historical sites that imprint on my memory. I'd probably have to visit them for that to happen.  I prefer the food destinations.

So in memory of some and honor of others, I posted anonymous love letters to a few of my favorite sweets across the country that I miss dearly.  Of course, the most obvious place to post these:  the Craigslist Missed Connections section.  Here is a snippet of the letters. 

El Pinto's Sopapillas (Albuquerque, New Mexico)

JP Lick's Ice Cream Cakes (Boston, Massachusetts -- originally Jamaica Plains, MA)

Browdy's Cinnamon Raisin Bread (Birmingham, Alabama)
