Eating outside, enjoying a beautiful summer evening with new friends, and then walking around a small, family farm, learning how they produce their bounty. Sounds good, no?
Check it out. The Bucks County Foodshed Alliance, in lieu of their regular monthly meetings, “meets” at local farms once a month during [...]
Why? Because they have to drive so far to get raw milk, while we, here in Bucks County, have two three farms who produce raw milk, and dairy products made from raw milk like cheese, yogurt and ice cream.
In a New York magazine article dated April 18, Straight From the Cow’s Teat, [...]
Catch this article in last week’s Bucks County Herald about the best wings in Bucks County. Talk about professional jealousy! I admit it!!

That’s why we are not going to rate ice cream purveyors in Bucks County (ha!), or even attempt to be comprehensive in our list. But for those of [...]
My apologies for getting the weekend run-down up so late. Blame it on a “weak” signal from Comcast. [Yes, I actually lived a day without internet access…and survived. The nervous tic should go away in a day or so.]
But I had a fun afternoon yesterday interviewing Patty and Brian Gianfelice at Pasqualina’s Italian [...]
One of the great things about doing this Web site is that people start telling you about their favorite restaurants, bars, markets and other foodie places. One of the not-so-great things about doing this Web site is (sigh) there’s just not enough time to go to all of them.
But what if you could go [...]

When thinking about our dinner at Basilleaf, a BYOB Vietnamese restaurant at 2808 South Eagle Road in Newtown, I keep coming back to the word “delightful.” First off, it’s a friendly place, with everyone from the wait staff to the kitchen staff showing up at your table to make sure your service is good.
