Hi, I'm a 23 year old Long Island raised lady who became a grown adult (aka: 6 years for undergrad and grad schooling) in Philly, home of squished pretzels and 'brotherly' love. I'm on the brink of finishing my degree in Physical Therapy and have traveled to the midwest for my final internship - a new, uncharted territory for me! I'm known to geek over anything anatomy or adaptive sports. You’ll find me stopping to pick flowers for my hair, living waist deep in my studies or spending the weekend cooking up a storm. My favorites are fruit, artsy things, wearing aprons and sprawling down on the ground instead of actual chairs.
This is my place of inspirations, thoughts, and daily occurences. Enjoy.
Apparently these are a "traditional Philadelphiaconfection that is not Irish and does not contain any potato, but is a cocoa powder and cinnamon covering over a white inside of coconut nougat made to look like a potato. It is a sweet treat, generally made up of some blend of coconut, confectioner’s sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and milk or cream. The treats are about the size of a large marble and are especially popular around St. Patrick’s Day.”
(I learn these things only because I work at an Ice Cream Soda Fountain/Candy Store. The Pine Nuts are added for ‘Potato Eyes’)
