Happy #foodiefriday!

This past week I had a birthday and I got to celebrate by grabbing a free scoop of ice cream at Ben & Jerry’s! I’m not much into sweets, but ice cream is my one true weakness, especially if it’s chocolate! Of course, I had to get Chocolate Therapy so I could fully indulge myself in birthday bliss.

What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Did you make it out for the Taco tour last night? The weather was perfect for hopping down Elm Street, picking up tacos, and listening to live music! The Judges’ Choice winner last night was Midtown Cafe with their grilled chicken kabob taco. Although I got to try a ton of awesome tacos, I’m kicking myself for not waiting in that line!

My personal favorite taco was served by Fratello’s, but a huge shout out goes to Firefly for having an open toppings bar! What was your favorite stop?

Happy Friday, Manchester! This week’s post is brought to you by Trixie, and is dedicated to a very special woman who passed on earlier this week, Julia’s Aunt Nina.

If you’ve met Julia, you know that she’s proud of her big, crazy Italian family! Her heritage is a prevalent part of how she lives her day to day life, especially when it comes to food. After doing some research into Italian customs, I learned that food sharing is the biggest way to connect families and friends. Whether to show love in times of celebration, or show support in times of great loss, it is the Italian way to come together and share a homemade meal.

Although I never met her, I do know that Nina was a pillar of the LoCascio family, and holds a significant place in the hearts of many.

So in honor of Auntie Nina, I’d like to share this recipe for Italian Cookies with you all. May you get to share these and many more homemade recipes with your loved ones!

While scrolling through Facebook this week I stumbled upon this post by Mint Bistro:

Now I don’t know about you, but to me the thought of sipping on a fresh mint Mojito is quintessential Summer. Bright, citrusy,  and most importantly, COLD!

Of course, the perfect summer drink differs from person to person. Some people prefer an ice cold brew. Others might like a frozen margarita. Luckily, there’s no shortage of options for icy drinks in downtown! So the next time you’re craving a brisk drink, be sure to stop by Elm Street!

What’s your favorite summer drink?

Yesterday was the first market day for The Manchester Community Market! Now, every Thursday from 3p-6:30p, you can stop in to Victory Park and pick up all kinds of fresh produce. After looking around at all the amazing vendors, and watching people stroll through the grass and trees while shopping, I think this market is going to become a downtown destination for the summer! Not only will there be fruits, veggies, and sweets like years past, The Manchester Community Market also offers fresh dairy products, artisan chocolates, all natural and organic skincare, plus so much more. To see a full list of all the vendors involved, click here.

I can’t wait to break out my market bags, and shop for fresh and local goods all summer long!
