Easter Greetings from Turtle Alley
We are so fortunate in Gloucester to have not one, but TWO, fabulous chocolatiers! I Love Turtle Alley and Nichols Candy House, and both owners, Barbara at Nichols and Hallie at Turtle Alley are wonderfully helpful and accommodating. And the people that work at both places could not be sweeter and more friendly. Happy Easter Chocolate Lovers!

The beautiful, beautiful Easter desserts and confections are all hand made by Maria Cracchiolo, including the marzipan lambs! The refrigerator was bursting with special orders and it was a treat to see Maria’s lovely (and wonderfully delicious) Cassata Siciliana in a range of sizes.
Maria’s family is oftentimes there, hard at work alongside her, and especially during the holidays. Pictured with Maria is her husband, Giuseppe Cracchiolo.

Silly fun at Alexandra’s Bread! I can’t believe how reasonably priced is the charming set of six glasses–Alexandra really keeps her prices affordable. Always a pleasure to pop into Alexandra’s Bread ~ thank you John and Alexandra!!
That is Sooo Cute!
