There are a few words that I would like to eliminate from the English language:

Polar vortex
Widespread power outage
Potholes

No doubt it has been a trying winter for all of us, even my youngest son, who loves nothing better […]

Blooming Glen is one of those Bucks County villages you could easily miss as you travel west on Route 113. Cows grazing, an auto repair shop, a few offices and some modest Victorian homes.

But don’t blink. Blooming Glen has three special food spots. Pasqualina’s, an Italian deli and market, Tussock […]

Another delicious holiday recipe from guest blogger Kelly Madey,

My mother-in-law has been on a perpetual diet since 1974;
As you would expect, she looks fantastic,
And I have no problem in making her an occasional dessert
That suits her low carb, low fat lifestyle.

Last week
I had a June Cleaver moment,
And the children were greeted
With fresh baked cookies
After school;

And there was ice cold milk,
The kind that comes in a glass jar;
And excitement was in […]

Summer is here. Sure, we’ve had some hot weather and the sweet corn is coming in, but nothing says summer more to me than peaches at Fairview Farm and tomatoes at Fred Slack’s farm. We have arrived.

To get to some of the best peaches in Bucks County, go to the intersection of […]

This week was our first pick-up at our CSA, Anchor Run Farm, in Wrightstown. It’s spring, so the main theme is greens: bok choy, spinach, Swiss chard, escarole, Romaine lettuce, spring mix and arugula, as well as turnips with their greens attached. And there will be more where that comes from in the […]

It’s a special time of year for Jews, and brings back memories of crisp fall days, dipping apples into honey and wishing our loved ones a Happy and Sweet New Year. It’s a […]

Tomatillos and pork loin

On September 19, 2011 By

Blueberries!

On June 28, 2011 By

Yee-ha. It’s blueberry season. We got some lovely ones from Solebury Orchard yesterday. Some are going into Mark’s homemade ice cream (made from Birchwood Farms sweet cream), some went into the freezer for cold winter days, and some, well, just went back into the fridge. I couldn’t bear to put them […]

Springtime Spears

On April 27, 2011 By

by guest blogger Rich Baringer,

Even thought the weather hasn’t been reminding us, it is springtime.  And that means fresh, local veggies are starting to appear.  How long we’ve waited.

One of my favorite spring vegetables is asparagus.  Oh, you can buy South American spears all winter in the grocery stores, […]
