Cheese Pizza

In case you missed it, March 8 was International Women’s Day. It’s easy to get disenchanted from the news, but here’s a sweet tidbit: Becky’s Bites, a women-run shop in New York, is reimagining cream cheese. The owner, Becky Rosenthal, was surprised with a $10,000 grant on Good Morning America in honor of Women’s History Month. So, next time you’re in NYC, stop in for some chocolate dipped cream cheese bites. I mean, we all have to do our part.
