friday links

First congrats to the winners of the Picky Palate Cookbook.
#6 Jodi, #24 Katrina and #10 Amelia--please email me your shipping address!

Have you tried the red velvet cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory?
Do I need to tell you how good it was?
Great idea.  Pricey though, but tasty. (found them at whole foods).
I can't tell you how much this one product: Dahlicious has changed my life in terms of having a healthy digestive system, and a healthy immune system.  It's now in a large (cheaper) size.  Thankfully.
Some of the best chocolate I've had.  I prefer the peanut butter one. Lake Champlain Chocolates.
Do I love this cookbook: The Little Paris Kitchen? I do.  A sweet friend sent it to me.
For us coffee lovers.
Coming to the Cape this summer? Please visit DJ Wings in Hyannis on the railroad tracks.
Literally some of the best wings I've had outside of Buffalo, NY.  Their portions are huge and what makes the wings so tasty are the sauces--unlimited amount of flavors.  I have yet to work up to the "Hurt Me" sauce. And don't forget to check out their "Angry Wings Contest" where you have to eat 10 "wings from hell" to the bone.
PB Boulangerie Bakery on cape cod (wellfleet), ma is back open for the season! A lot of cape codders are happy to see them again after a long, hard winter (myself included).
Their almond croissant is exactly like (if not better) than the ones from Paris. I am not kidding.
A new flavor for San Pellegrino?  It's good, really good. Lime is my favorite.
Easter egg season is in full swing at Stage Stop Candy in Dennisport, MA. (these happen to be my favorite).
There has been a lot of beach erosion damage from the last few storms and blizzards.
This is cape cod national seashore where literally chunks of the cliffs are eaten away from the mammoth waves.  That black is earth, that's how severe the waves were during the blizzard.
If you can imagine, there used to be about 3-5 more feet of this cliff! Location: Le Count Hollow Beach, Wellfleet, Ma.
We did get some long-lasting swells from the blizzards even days after the storm had passed.
Spring fever is at an all time high here on cape cod.
I am very anxious for spring and summer.  Our days of sun lately have been limited.
