Parkersburg Edition: CJ's Italian Kitchen


CJs Italian KitchenCJ's Italian Kitchen was originally planned for a lovely lunch. I had a nice, planned out weekend, and this restaurant threw a wrench in my plans/ruined my life when they closed for lunch unexpectedly. Instead, I had to settle for a quick stop after dinner just for dessert.

Fortunately, dessert is right up front in the case when you walk into the restaurant.

That was the case here. Sure, it tastes like a lemony cloud. But some more moisture in the cake layers would take this up a notch.
