  • Pumpkin Whoopie Pies #recipe #sundaysupper

    Pumpkin Whoopie Pies #recipe #sundaysupper

    The whoopie pie is not quite a cookie and not quite a cake. In fact, it seems to be the perfect marriage of the two. It is said to have been created by the Amish, it is the official state treat of Maine and there are even whoopee pie festivals. We’ve seen them often in our travels.

    So, we thought fall would be the ideal time to celebrate the whoopee pie, incorporating one of Autumn’s superstars, the pumpkin. Our pumpkin whoopee pies are sweet but not overpowering, they have a hint of spice and a cream cheese filling that has just a whisper of maple. Perfect for an afternoon snack with a cup of tea.

    Through Expedia you can arrange a private standard car fromCharles de Gaulle Airport to your hotel. The entire process was very simple. I went online, entered all the flight information, pre-paid ($63.00 from the airport to the hotel) and the driver waiting for us at baggage claim. Having never been to Paris before, this took the stress out of navigating from the airport to the hotel after an 8-hour red eye flight.

  • Underwater arch in Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos, Photographer Kyle Tomao

    Dive Grand Turk!

    Imagine crystal clear, turquoise blue water that turns dark blue just a few hundred yards from shore where a wall drops to 7,000 feet, abundant with magnificent corals, sponges, tropical fish, turtles and miscellaneous sea critters. It’s less than a ten-minute boat ride to most dive sites, bright and sunny days with a nice breeze and a pleasant water temperature, not to mention beautiful white sandy beaches where donkeys and horses can be seen roaming freely. If you see all of the above and friendly people who drive on the left-hand side of the road, then you’ve pictured Grand Turk island, the capital of the Turks and Caicos.
