Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer Turns Sweet 16 May 4-10!

We might be only to be able to see white snow outside beyond our imaginations with icicles hanging off of houses and buildings everywhere.  Temperatures so frigid you can’t imagine that you truly have to go out into it. Snow days galore that affected local business including many of our participants.  Public transportation, traffic and parking are all major inconveniences right now.  This winter is one for the history books.
The days are staying lighter a little longer and we all hope for winter’s end to come sooner rather than later.  With spring comes the 16th Annual Boston Bakes for Breast …

Heading to the Fireplace the Week of Boston Bakes!

Yesterday, I received an incredible email from our good friend Jim Solomon, chef and owner of the Fireplace in Brookline, Massachusetts. Jim’s email gave me the “heads-up” on his dessert, knowing I would want to make a reservation! He was right!
Jim has been a supporter of Boston Bakes for more years than I can remember.  The Fireplace and Jim are all about Americana!   His restaurant is all about embracing the foods of New England, simple and deliciously prepared, homey and comfy. The Fireplace is also a certified green restaurant.
In the early years of Boston Bakes, Jim would serve a wonderful …

 

Marathon Monday!

Boston comes alive the weekend prior to the start of the Boston Marathon! The energy of the city is felt everywhere.  The long planning of the marathon is done.  The runners have trained long and hard.  They hope the weather will be perfect, not to hot and not to cold.  They hope Heartbreak Hill won’t get the best of them and that they cross the finish line with everyone cheering them.  Along the way on the sides of the road, many people will be waiting to cheer on the runners mile by mile.  It is what we do each Patriot’s …

Wine Dinners at Del Frisco’s

I was recently invited to attend a wine tasting to celebrate the World of Wine Dinner series for the wine enthusiast in all of us at Del Frisco’s in Boston.  After a long week of work with my computer permanently attached to me, I decided it would be nice to get out and do something fun!
I have to be honest, I have never had the time to go and enjoy a wine dinner.  I have been to wine tastings but never to a wine dinner but I was ready to be educated!  I also had never been to Del Frisco’s!  …

 

My Summer Mini Vacation!

I am guilty of staying in my own backyard and not going outside the area to explore and have adventures!  Guilty I am!  This summer a mini family reunion took me to the Wequassett Resort in Harwich and let me tell you how much fun I had!  Did I mention how I did not want to leave? In fact you could say I would be very happy moving in and staying!
I can’t say I explored the area all that much but enjoyed the comforts of this very family oriented resort, from the cookies waiting for me upon check in and …
