Happy Monday! Hope you had a great weekend. I was so graciously surprised on Saturday when Pantone shared my recipe for Pantone Cookies. I even had to turn off notifications on my phone for a few hours! It was super cool, and I just wanted to say welcome to my new followers. Thanks so much for stopping by! I’m so happy you did.
OK, on to today’s Kitchen Road Trip. Lately, I’ve been wishing I could just skip spring and summer so it could be fall again — my favorite. Working on this week’s guide to the food, design and home products of Connecticut led me into a vortex of dreamy photos of Yale, lighthouses and covered bridges against the backdrop of gorgeous, golden-leaved trees. Connecticut seems so magical! And, it is the first New England state in this series. I love the architecture in New England, not to mention all the lobster! I haven’t spent a lot of time in the Nutmeg State, as both times I visited were just quick stops. I do remember eating at the famous Mystic Pizza with my brother and sister, and that memory feels an awful lot like an afternoon in Gilmore Girls’ Stars Hollow… Or maybe that’s just wishful thinking. In any case, on to the list. As always, the close seconds are up on Pinterest. // susannah
