The Flavors of Fall

It’s as if Fall was created specifically for New England. How else can you explain the perfect slight chill in the air and the great produce like squash, pumpkins, and the myriad of delicious apples available at farm stands throughout the region?

Spring is in the Air!

  We just know that spring is in the air, and not a moment too soon. Here in the Northeast, we’ve had a winter full of short days, an overabundance of snow, and cabin fever was at an all-time high. But fear not, Spring is just around the corner. And we couldn’t be happier. In

‘Tis the Season!

For those of us who love food, the holiday season really IS a very special time of year. When we think of Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Year’s Day, we reminisce about holidays past, and look forward to getting together with family and friends. We feast on good food and wine (dieting during the holidays is not allowed!), and enjoy the time with loved ones. . .

The Time is Ripe!

Getting to experience four distinct seasons is one of the best perks of living in the Northeast. Spring seems so amazingly green after the stark white of winter snows.

The Summer issue is here!

Quick . . . when we say “summer food in New England”, what pops into your head? Lobster and the freshest possible shellfish eaten at a seaside shack?

A Cure for Cabin Fever!

This winter, we’ve enjoyed mild weather in New England — a lovely and welcome change! But that doesn’t mean we’re immune from Cabin Fever. There are cold snaps, head colds, dark days, and a smattering of snow here and there. The groundhog has seen his shadow, so we’re in for six more weeks of winter

‘Tis the Season for Celebrating

While winter may seem like the natural slowing of the year, with the days getting shorter and our gardens tucked away waiting for spring, it’s actually a really busy time for most families.
