Today I roasted a Picnic Pork Shoulder and created my own Char Siu sauce, including making my own Hoisin Sauce and Five Spice Powder and it brought back memories of trips to Chinatown when I was young.
We revisited a park we went to back in 2010. Believe it or not, almost the exact same day 10 years later! And when we came home I made this curried squash and apple soup. Why not try it? And head to the island now that the plovers are done doing their thing~
This post includes my memories of hot air ballooning with my mom and the adventure starts while I was booking the trip! And a delicious pie based on a recipe for Atlantic Beach pie, but taking advantage of the happy combination of lemon, mango, and pineapple, with a dash of coconut thrown in! And yes, it’s a saltine crust, be brave!
Walking along the Battle Road Trail in Concord, and a filling and healthy lentil stew to make for a sunny autumn day
We recently revisited Blackstone River and Canal Heritage State Park in Uxbridge, MA. After 10 years, it is still beautiful and a great place for family, friends and dogs to wander, enjoy the water, get some fresh air, and explore! I hope you agree.
We just came back from a trip to Upstate NY. Not only did we visit some great wineries, but it inspired me to make a delicious lemony garlic shrimp boil. The perfect summer celebration meal and so easy to make!
Years ago we visited Odiorne Point State Park. We went back today to find that it’s even better than we remembered! And when we got home Beth and I baked a Blueberry Peach Crumble. The best ever! Looking for a new place to hike? Looking for a dessert perfect for all those berries you picked? This is it!
We went blueberry picking at Parlee Farms and then I came home to create an amazing lemon blueberry scone recipe. Too bad it only makes twelve!
We revisited Moore State Park this weekend and although there was a lot of construction going on, and flowers were pretty much done, this park is always a beautiful, peaceful place to wander and connect with nature.
I’ve been to New Orleans twice, and hope to go again. This post includes my favorite restaurants, favorite memories and an amazing recipe for lemon filled beignets!
