S’more Cupcakes

S’more Cupcakes

I wish time machines existed and time travel was a reality.  I’d love to go back to the Age of Reason, the Industrial Revolution,  and my favorites– the Renaissance and Baroque period.

For now, I’ll just have to settle for food to take me back in time.  Food is a vehicle for keeping memories alive, passing down tradition, and reminiscing about the past.  Whether it be your grandmother’s apple pie or your dad’s barbecue, food evokes memories and experiences.

No other dessert reminds me more of my childhood than s’mores.  S’mores made by my mother at home over the stove, s’mores over a grill during summer parties, and s’more made during high school bonfires at the beach.
