Can you believe that it’s almost May and it’s still 45 degrees out? I certainly can’t! On days like these, I wish I were somewhere warm and tropical, like Bermuda! Bermuda is one of my favorite places. I went there two years and had a blast. It’s a fairly small island, so there’s not much disconnect between the tourists and locals. One spot both groups like to hang out at is The Swizzle Inn. It’s one of the oldest and most well known pubs in Bermuda, and has a unique style of its own. The inside walls are covered in …
Hi Bakes for Breast Cancer Blog fans!
Checking in with only ONE MONTH to go until Miss Boston 2014 and some really exciting news!

It has been an incredible road to Miss Boston and I’m so happy Bakes for Breast Cancer has been a part of it. Voting has started for the People’s Choice award.

I’m so proud and excited to be representing the organization with my platform at the pageant. I’ve been working hard with the …
A once in a lifetime occurrence where Thanksgiving and Chanukah actually fall on the same day! It happens this year! Last year I had no idea we would be celebrating two holidays together!
Oh vey, the dilemma this causes! What do you leave out of your annual Thanksgiving menu and what do you do to celebrate both holidays!
All I can tell you is that is one starchy holiday! Added is my traditional kugel, the pumpkin kugel got vetoed by the family. In is the potato pancakes and challah stuffing! I am keeping the mushroom soup, endive and goat cheese appetizer …
When I was in Italy, one of the most enjoyable parts of the day or evening was cooking lunch or dinner with friends. We would talk, cook and drink wine and then enjoy the meal. Many times my friend would cook for me and I would help a little. This was a new concept for me because generally when home, I am the one doing the cooking and someone else will help with the cleanup! Reality, it is not as much fun as cooking with family or friends!
My friend in Italy suggested I learn Italian. So upon my return for …
Twenty eight years ago, Dairy Queen introduced the Blizzard! It took me 28 years to finally try it! Why you might ask did it take me so long? There is a simple and logical reason, I am a person of tradition. I grew up on Carvel and have always loved soft serve ice cream but always order the same thing every time!
Living in Massachusetts, I don’t have a local Carvel store nearby but I know where the Dairy Queen stores are located! As a soft serve ice cream junkie, I will always stop in if they are open and order …
Last year I was a little too late to go to the 9th Annual Cape Cod Jazz Festival at the Wequassett Resort and Golf Club. I am happy to say I made it to one performance during the 10th Annual Cape Cod Jazz Festival which takes place Tuesday and Wednesday evenings during the summer on the Garden Terrace. A wide variety of performers perform all summer long and I enjoyed evening listening to the very talented Grammy nominated Rebecca Parris who was joined in the end by Suede. What a treat the evening was!
But I can’t forget how the evening …
The festivities of July 4th are now behind us! The numerous firework displays and concerts celebrating the birth of our country are over for this year! The evenings leading up to the 4th and after have been filled with the sounds of fireworks.
Now summer is in full gear! The weather we have waited for all winter is here for us to enjoy! Winter seems to last forever but summer always seems to fly by without a second thought or glance.
Summer entertaining and grilling takes center stage as well as long awaited visits to the beach where the water temperature is …
Honey is glorious.
Whether you eat it by the spoonful, drizzle it over cornbread, or pour it in your tea, it’s the perfect amount of sweet to satisfy any craving. Last summer I discovered that this multi-talented condiment makes a great dressing–especially for chicken.
The best thing about this recipe is its simplicity. Most, if not all, of the ingredients tend to be common pantry items and are pretty easy to find.
¼ c Honey
1 tbls soy sauce
1 tbls white vinegar
1 tsp pumpkin spice (or ¼ tsp each of nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves)
Pour everything into a bowl and mix well.
Put this glaze …
