I fell in love with Maduros when I had a marketing business in Panama for four years. My two favorite things were Maduros and Mojitos. Trust they were over the top. I still miss them and whip them up at home frequently. When I do, half the neighborhood shows up. […]
Even though we live in Florida where it’s seems like the endless Summer, we do have seasons as slight as they are. But now there were in June, I think back to the many fond memories of living in the Hamlet of Pultneyville, New York o the shores of Lake […]
Most high end grocery stores have a great selection of marinated cheeses, olives and vegetables. While they are a real time-saver for putting together a last minute antipasto platter…they are really cost prohibitive. They sell by the pound at a cost of about $5.99. With a little planning, these recipes can be easily made ahead and stored in the refrigerator for about two weeks.
Our home in Upstate NY was located in an historic hamlet on the shore of Lake Ontario called Pultneyville. The hamlet was originally laid out in 1806 and is listed with the National Register of Historic Places. At one time a significant Great Lakes trading port and site of a War of 1812 skirmish, it now is a quiet, Western New York bedroom community. Set between the fruit orchards and a Great Lake on the Seaway Trail, many of Pultneyville’s activities focus on summer sailing and theatre. The hamlet boasts an active marina and is home to the second-oldest little theater in the United States.

I must admit that I really love carbs: I really love good bread (Thank You – DeRomo’s Gourmet Italian Market), all kinds of pasta but I’m much fussier about potatoes. I have what I call my “To Tight Pants Rule”. You all know what I’m talking about – when pants get to tight, cut back on the carbs.
It’s a Foodie’s dream come true – homemade bread and pastries, real NY bagels, a huge variety of local cheeses, fresh seafood, BBQ, delicious New England Lobster rolls, flowers and much, much more.
I have to admit I stole this recipe for The Pioneer Woman. I had one of those awful summer colds and I was laying on the couch feeling miserable watching the Food Network.
Rob Loves Bearnaise Sauce!!!. I usually make it when we are grilling a Filet Mignon. This is really a basic recipe, but I usually add a little bit more tarragon, fresh from our herb garden. Believe me, Rob will eat this sauce on almost anything. He loves it on poached […]
