Today I was scheduled for a 5 mile run on my 1/2 marathon training schedule. I laced up and hit the Coney Island Boardwalk for a 5 mile out & back along Brighton Beach. Summer is here! All of the vendors are open (including my OBSESSION- Ralph's Ices) and this joint was PACKED.
When I got home, I was HANGRY.
Raise your hand if you spend summer dreaming about delicious fall and winter holiday treats. (GUILTY)
My husband's favorite holiday dessert of all time is Paradise Pumpkin Pie- 50% pumpkin pie, 50% cheesecake, 100% yumgasmic.
My MIL makes the best Paradise Pumpkin Pie of all time. If I could, I would eat it every day. But alas, I cannot. So here's the next best thing!
