One of the nice things about having come to the Adirondacks since I was a baby, but never really going out to eat that much, because my great-grandmother was a fabulous cook, is that even restaurants that have been around for decades are new to me. Last night at the Harvest Restaurant in Queensbury., I… Continue reading Harvest Restaurant
It wasn’t planned, but it’s become somewhat of a tradition that every Thanksgiving, I make a new squash recipe that’s both gluten-free and vegan. This year I decided to do a twist on one of my very first risotto recipes. . There are two major factors to making this recipe a success — constantly stiring… Continue reading Cinnamon Sugar Roasted Butternut Squash Stuffed With Cranberry Risotto
Many of you likely have your Thanksgiving menus already planned out, but if you’re like me, you have an idea of what you’re going to make, but there’s always room to add another dish or experiment a little. While I usually discourage people from trying a new recipe before a big crowd comes over, I… Continue reading Vegan & Gluten Free Thanksgiving Recipes

Since they seem to like colder weather, the little heads recently started for form. Hoping they will be ready for Thanksgiving might… Continue reading Garden Sprouts … In November!
As soon as I saw the package of shaved brussels sprouts at Trader Joe’s I knew I wanted to try something fun with them. My first thought was to substitute them for spinach in a dip, but since every time I bought a bag, it went bad before I could make one, I took it… Continue reading Shaved Brussels Sprouts & Pomegranate Tricolor Quinoa
My post today was supposed to be about our Trader Joe’s dinner last night, but since I’m having Internet trouble, and can only blog from my phone right now, I thought I would share this with you: An afternoon treat from the Lake George Baking Company. It’s a chocolate almond horseshoe that has just right… Continue reading Sunday Afternoon Treat
I live in the Adirondacks, but I had to come to New Jersey to get snow. Kinda ironic, right? Well, I didn’t have to come here I’m still at my Dad’s house, and still without heat. We left the generator on a little longer last night because we were worried it would get too cold.… Continue reading Snow in … New Jersey!
