Usually when it’s been a busy week it means my kitchen is coated in confectioner’s sugar and my fingers are stained with dye, but this time the only thing I was coated in was sunscreen and staining came in the form of freckles.
Now, some of you may think of old women with purple hair throwing quarters at slots when I say Atlantic City [and you wouldn’t be wrong] but there’s a lot more to the Jersey Shore than GTL’ing and fist pumps.
From trying my first fried snickers bar to learning that a ‘slice’ can feed two, I had a great time sampling the many foods laced with basil [seriously, even the cocktail sauce had basil in it] and the many cookies and candies you can toss in with funnel cake batter.
And while this post isn’t a recipe, I still had to share the great time! Stay tuned for an upcoming summer cupcake sendoff 😉
I’m at the Jersey Shore, Bi—!
The Chelsea Hotel was poppin’, and so was the celebratory champagne. [Raishay on the boardwalk, Meris the lush]
Clearly, I needed the tackiest towel the city had to offer. When I purchased this one, the man at the counter said “Oh, you like cats?” Then proceeded to show me an entire collection of cat towels. It was my lucky day 😉 [Casbah the Cheetah, the beach]
Atlantic City is also the home of IT’SUGAR, selling some of the largest candies and desserts in the world. Also my new home away from home.
Ocean dreaming at a little hidden deck we found on the 6th floor of the Pier Shops at Ceasars.
And to cap off the trip we thought: why not parasail and get that adrenaline pumping a little more? We had to go to Ocean City, NJ, for the sail, since we missed our first appointment and I chewed out the phone girl. But we had a great experience with Bayview Marina!
