I love ice cream. I’ll go out of my way to have it. Or make excuses to go out and get some. But sometimes, I'll just see a place while driving by and I'll stop to get some. I've written about my favorite places to get ice cream in DC. Here is a collection of other ice cream parlors I've visited in the past couple of years.
If you can't get ice-cream straight from a cow, the next best thing is at a shop in the middle of farm country. That is the case for Norwood Ice Cream & Candy Company, located on the historic Main Street in downtown Sykesville, Maryland,. It has become my favorite place to get ice cream.
In East Aurora, New York there's a hot new ice cream parlor serving house made ice cream. I journeyed there, about 20 minutes south of Buffalo, to see if it lives up to the hype. It most certainly does.
Every 17 years, millions of Cicada emerge from the ground in order to reproduce. 2021 is one of those years they appear. Where I live, these little insects are everywhere. And even if you don't see them, you can hear them. But can you eat them? Here are a few places that have had some fun with Cicadas, culinary wise.
Market Street in Corning, New York is a lovely little downtown area with lots of neat shops and restaurants. Recently, they have shut down the street to traffic, making it a pedestrian only area. I think the result is great; a perfect place to dine.
I love eating at diners. They are not only great places to get comfort food, but also a good way to experience a city's local culture. Over the years, I have been to many diners at many places throughout the US. Here are my favorites.
There's a relatively new ice cream place in the Shaw area of Washington DC that makes ice cream on the spot using liquid Nitrogen: Nicecream. It does not get fresher than this!
For over 75 years, when Western New Yorkers go to the beach they get their food at Connors Hot Dog Stand. It is a Buffalo summer tradition.
In the small town of Caledonia, New York -- not far west of Rochester -- I found a classic 50s style diner. With friendly service and fabulous home cooking, Reminisce offers a unique and memorable dining experience.
Situated in a 1950s era gas station in the farmlands of Scaggsville, Md, Pepperjacks Subs serves the best sandwiches and milk shakes around.
