Salt water taffy reminds me of the beautiful summers I would spend with my mum, sister, grandma and great-grand uncle in Rockport, Ma., when we would all get along and get to relax.
My mom always made vanilla cake with vanilla frosting for my birthdays, and still does. Birthdays bring back really good memories.
Dumplings are a food that bring back the memories of a friend who would make them with us before she moved away.
Ice cream reminds of the days when I was young and my family would slow down from our fast-paced life. All of us would actually walk to the ice cream shop, and sit together and just talk to one another in a carefree way.
