Continuing the series of inexpensive daytrips near the Tampa Bay, Florida, area, this week I present the murals on the Mazzaro Italian Market buildings in St. Petersburg. When you have out-of-town visitors and don't know what to do with them, treat them and yourself to an interesting, photographable destination that is cheap and uncomplicated. Plus, buy my books and blog gear to fulfill your holiday shopping list!
Learn how to make the traditional Italian Rainbow cookies, which are really tiny cakes. You can put an ombré or any other color scheme touch on them. This is an overnight recipe, so plan ahead. The almond-chocolate-raspberry flavor of the bite-sized cakes will make you glad you spent the time and effort. Recipe is included.
