When plans don’t go according to plan, we make the best of it. New hiking boots and an incredible steak and mushroom sauce dinner replaced our trip to Castle Hill last night. It was a good evening after all!
I grew up on an old farm north of Boston. We had chickens, ducks, and a lot of fun. This post is about some memories of living the rural life in the 60s, but also a great recipe for cider braised pork. Why not give this simple recipe a try?
Looking for a really good veggie burger recipe with so much flavor you don’t even need to add ketchup or mustard? This is it, with some simple swap outs to make it vegan if you want!
Looking for a family friendly paved trail for kids, family and even leashed dogs? This is it! Great options for parking, pretty scenery, and there are many sections to access from Lowell all the way to Framingham. Plus we found a great place for coffee and tea in Acton!
May be one of our last beach walks of the year. And while it wasn’t long, we squeezed every drop of “great” out of it! From gorgous ocean views, to a winery and an amazing Italian bakery/sandwich shop/grocery
A simple soup, with a special recipe for homemade meatballs. And memories of my mother’s spirit in the ICU, that woman could make us laugh in the most unexpected places.
The state of Maine is now closed to us Massachusettsians.. or Mass-Holes as some people call us. But we found out just in time to head to our favorite location for a final hike in 2020! If you love Ogunquit and Marginal Way, enjoy this photo essay and memories about this beautiful place any day of the year.
I remember stories of my friend Lou’s family and the amazing dishes his mom made at the holidays. This time I decided to create my own recipe for pastitsio… definitely a few unique ingredients, but it’s a new favorite in my house!
On Halloween we took a hike in Arlington at the Alewife Brook Reservation. In this post I reminisce about Halloweens past, and the beauty we discovered so close to home, and a snowy Halloween that is so different than those celebrations of days past.
I love Maine, don’t you? And when the border finally reopened to MA residents, we knew our next hike would be there. Mount Agamenticus is an easy hike, kid friendly, and near so many cool places for breakfast and lunch. Why not go this weekend?
