My Dad loves lasagna. Lucky for him, it’s one of his daughter’s favorite things to cook. So, for Father’s Day I whipped up a traditional three cheese lasagna, and paired it with my Dad’s favorite red wine — red barn from the Adirondack Winery — for a lovely Father’s Day meal. I really do love… Continue reading A “Cheesy” Father’s Day
Happy Father’s Day to the Dads and Granddads, especially mine! 🙂 Me and my Dad at Whiteface Mountain as a kid.
My apologies Adirondack foodie friends for this post coming in the middle of the week, but things have been a little crazy around here. This week is Restaurant Week in the Lake George area, and while unfortunately I am traveling because of work and am not around to enjoy most of it, I did eat… Continue reading Places to Eat During Lake George Area Restaurant Week
Super easy, super quick and super good — that’s my kind of dinner. It was also the kind of dinner I needed after planting my garden and being 100 percent exhausted over Memorial Day Weekend. Plus, this is one of those vegetarian dishes that can be easily adapted for vegans, meat eaters and those who… Continue reading Veggie Parm Melt
Although I don’t ride a motorcycle, actually no one in my immediate family/friends does, I absolutely love Americade — the world’s largest motorcycle touring rally. It’s been taking place since I was a year old, so I guess it’s just natural that it has become a must-attend event. For those of you not in the… Continue reading Americade Celebrates 30 Years of Motorcycle Rallys
Found this little guy while I was gardening a few weeks ago. Isn’t he just adorable?! What kind of creatures do you find in your garden?
If you can’t tell by now, I’m a huge fan of the Glens Falls Farmers Market. It’s convenient, close, takes place on a Saturday and I always find something new to try. Last week I got a bunch of new items, including Adirondack Country Gourmet Coffee! It is seriously the second-best cup of coffee I’ve… Continue reading Fresh Roasted Adirondack Coffee

Unfortunately, I can’t take the credit for the catchy title above — that’s how my friend Vikki described the “kinda” breakfast we ate at Gambles Bakery in Queensbury yesterday. I say “kinda” because we went in there to pick up danishes and crumb buns for breakfast (I swear that’s the only reason she comes to… Continue reading The Fluffiest Raisin Bread Ever
I am on such a dill kick lately! For an herb that I hardly ever used in the past, I’ve probably used it at least five or six times in the last two weeks — including in this pre-mixed dip packet we picked up at the Glens Falls Farmers from Northeast Corner Herbs. The hand-blended… Continue reading A Dippy Success
