Even if you’re not a big beer lover, I’m sure you’ve heard of the annual German festival, Oktoberfest. It’s the world’s largest beer festival and fair, long part of traditional Bavarian culture. But you don’t need to go to Germany because so many local restaurants are putting on their own beer and food festivals.
We’ve been collecting these “tidbits” all summer for you. Here’s what’s happening on the restaurant scene in Bucks County and nearby Hunterdon County.
Oysters still on the menu! The Milford Oyster House became The Milford House this past August, and while new owners Rosie Tangtrakul and Tom Kulnis have changed […]
There’s nothing like an evening stroll through your favorite Bucks County town, especially when it’s fall. When I went to school at DelVal, I used to walk around Doylestown with a cup of coffee, admiring all the changing leaves and crossing the street just to step in a big crunchy pile of them.
I encourage you […]
You might think that summer is the time for outdoor activities, food festivals, and farmers markets. Fall is when the real party begins, and weekends in September and October are always jam-packed. Check out all activities happening in Bucks County, like the Fall Friend-of-a-Farmer Dinner, beer and wine tasting at a local farm, picking your own pumpkins, and more.

I love combining ingredients that many people don’t think as going together. I really enjoy sweet with salty or spicy. Since tomatoes still seem to be in full supply, I thought that I’d pass on this simple recipe that does just that.
It’s a salsa using fresh, ripe tomatoes and juicy […]
This weekend, I made my first apple pie of the season (using fresh-picked apples of course). Needless to say, it’s almost all gone. Soon it will be time for an annual “where to pick apples” post, since Bucks County has apple trees galore. Plus, the farms have more varieties of the fruit than your bag can […]
What a beautiful day! Get a head start on your weekend because there are things to do and eat in Bucks County from Thursday until Sunday. Drink beer on historic grounds in Lansdale, check out a chef demo from one of Bucks County’s favorite BYOBs, and stop by the grand opening of a new and […]

This past weekend, I needed to bring a tasty potluck dish to a picnic. Although many guests bring the usual salads and other dishes requiring cutlery, I always opt for finger foods which are so much easier to manage, especially when balancing a glass of rosé in one hand. My […]
This hot weather is a little unexpected. For a second, I thought temperatures were cooling down, and I was fully prepared to put on a sweater and walk around town, stepping all over crunchy leaves. Since we might have to hold on to summer a little bit longer, here are some “cool” events to enjoy […]

With farmers’ markets bursting with the best of Bucks County, many of us are getting our share of the great veggies grown in our area. Buying these tasty, nutritious local foods is well worth the money, but it’s always good to know how to get the most bang for your […]
With the mini heat wave we’re about to endure, you would almost think it’s the middle of July again. The weather may have you fooled, and so will this weekend of foodie events. It’s a nice mix of autumn festivals, end-of-summer BBQs, and a few ways to celebrate the fall harvest.

While the calendar says it’s September, it’s still summer for a while. And even though the days of fresh watermelon are numbered, they aren’t over yet. So why not try a different way to serve watermelon?
As I’ve said in other posts, I love combining ingredients and flavors that, on […]
The three-day weekend has come and gone, so hopefully got in one last summer BBQ or dip in the pool. Now it’s time to pack up your white clothes, break out the sweaters, and say hello to pumpkin spice everything.
It’s sad to see summer come to an end, but we’ve gathered some great foodie […]
Welcome September! It’s Labor Day weekend, which means Bucks County is jam-packed with things to do. The weather should be clear for most of the weekend, so catch the season’s last fireworks, head to the farmers market for fresh produce, or pick-your-own grapes at a local winery.
