1. Trudeau Pot Clip Spoon Rest I just love this little $6.00 item! I cook daily for our dogs and am totally conscious of where the spoon rests with regards to bacteria and germs as I am often dealing with raw meats. I have a dish that I rest the spoon on in between and […]

Links We Love

I guess this could be called “Links We Hate,” because the information in each article makes you want to move to another planet and never eat or drink anything again! Of course we are exaggerating, but seriously, this information will make you rethink many different aspects of the food industry. We vow never to let […]

Since today is the first day of summer… 1. Frosty Freeze – Only 8 This little dilapidated shack right on East Main Road in Middletown is a dream for children and adults alike.

Our version of a takeout is not necessarily as fast as calling up a restaurant and having something delivered. We still had to […]

Farmer’s Markets: […]

Downtown Jamie Brown

He left a dream engineering job at General Electric’s jet engine group 26 years ago, moved to Hawaii to pursue his passion for windsurfing and has created a life that most would dream of. […]

1. Cooks Illustrated I absolutely LOVE this magazine. It’s filled with incredible tips and illustrations, my favorite section being the “Kitchen Notes” in the back. It’s certainly worth the investment of $19.95 for a subscription (6 issues) rather than buying it at 5.95 an issue. It’s a pretty exciting day when this baby shows up […]
