The Sweet Life: Pittsburgh’s Best Bakeries

The Sweet Life: Pittsburgh's Best Bakeries

As immigrants flocked to Pittsburgh and settled into neighborhoods, most of those new communities had a bakery, often owned by a baker who had brought their scrumptious recipes for baked goods from the old country. As time went on and supermarkets, with their own in-store bakeries, came into fashion, many of those local, family-owned bakeries closed. A few of those treasured bakeries survived, and in […]

Almond Toffee

Almond Toffee

This is a wonderful treat and makes quite a bit. I have given it as gifts during the holidays. One caution–unless you like taking risk, use a candy thermometer. If you don’t have one, invest in one. It is very easy to burn the toffee and ruin the whole batch. Ingredients:

The Gran Canal Caffe

The Gran Canal Caffe

  Tucked away just up the street from the statue of Seneca Chief Guyasuta in Sharpsburg is the Gran Canal Caffe. Since 1995, owners Michele and Antoinette Bonaventura have been serving freshly-made and cooked-to-order delicious Italian cuisine. How this restaurant escaped my attention baffles me, but I’m beginning to suspect that their loyal diners must have been keeping this gem to themselves for fear if […]
