Default I wish I could get....

When I went to New York this past August I had a cookie called the black & white cookie and it was the best darn cookie I have ever had. I see you can order them online but their not cheap. What is it that you wish you could get near home that you had on a vacation?

Ohhhhh...black and white cookies are a childhood fave, can you get them in a large city near you?




For me it's a great piece of key lime pie!

Beaver Tails! As far as I know, the closest kiosk selling Beaver Tails is in Halifax, about 2 hours away. I made sure to treat myself to one last week when I was there!

White Castles! (I grew up in Indiana where we enjoyed White Castle hamburgers (sliders) by the dozen.) Now, when I go home, the first place I stop after crossing the Indiana State Line, is the White Castle. (Nope,,,Krystals just aren't the same!)

I have a shopping list of things I wish I could get.

1 - Cains Mayonaise local to the New England area.
2 - Fried Clams, whole belly ones not the strips.
3 - Real Maple Syrup, I get it by asking family to get it at the farms in NH and bring it when they come south.
4 - Whoopie Pies, another New England delight.
5 - My Mothers home made pies because me baking pies is a disaster waiting to happen.
This list could go on and on but I will stop here

Just one more thing.......

I would like would be my Grandmothers home made crab apples. She passed away in 1986 after spending 10 years in a nursing home. My uncle had been clearing out the old family home in Eastport Maine and found several jars of her crabapples. This was in 1986. She had been in the nursing home for 10 years so those apples were at least 10 years old. He took them to his home in Rhode Island. At Thanksgiving he brought them out and served them. We all tried them, a bit cautiously due to their age. They were wonderful. It was a gift from heaven from my Grandmother.

Laura, what a beautiful story about your grandmother and her canned apples.
What a wonderful memory you will always have.
