"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)
