Gimme s’more

Jun 07th 2012



Sun is just starting to set. You have had an amazing dinner at Alexander's (Chef Ben is brilliant) and a few glasses of Sonoma wine that you just might have to purchase a bottle (or three) for the wine closet. The view of the ocean is killer from the toasty firepit and yet there is something missing. What IS it? Great company (check) A view to die for (check) wonderful meal ( check.check) oh, RIGHT... It's perfect time and place for S'MORES!

Honestly Is there anything better by a firepit than a s'more? For a nominal fee the creative and thoughtful management team at Timber Cove Inn will carefully bundle up all the tasty bits...s'more holders, graham crackers, marshmellows and hershys semi -sweet chocolate for your grilling pleasure. NUM NUM!

Anybody know where s'mores got started? Wikipedia claims that  "... While the origin of the dessert is unclear, the first recorded version of the recipe can be found in the publication "Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts" of 1927. The recipe is credited to Loretta Scott Crew, who reportedly made them by the campfire for the Scouts. It is unknown whether the Girl Scouts were the first to make s'mores, but there appears to be no earlier claim to this snack. Although it is unknown when the name was shortened, recipes for "Some Mores" are in various Girl Scout publications until at least 1973"

Anybody out there have a better story?
