Not a pastry chef? No worries-Delizza to the rescue!

My favorite Haunts – Hotel San Carlos


If you know me, you know I love a good Ghost Story.   There’s just something tragic and romantic about a soul staying here on Earth.  Though I’ve never seen and ghost myself, I have scared myself beyond belief.  I guess I love that adrenalin rush. So I thought over the next couple of days I’d share some of…
