Berry Cream Cheese Danishes

I’ve been feeling nostalgic lately, more so than usual. I miss my friends; all of them. A lot of them are in New York, New Hampshire, one in Colorado, two in South Carolina, Vermont, Connecticut, a few in California, and even Rhode Island and Massachusetts. My family is only 45 minutes away and yet I don’t see them enough. I want to be able to … Continue reading Berry Cream Cheese Danishes

Ginger Teriyaki Chicken with Parmesan Garlic Farfalle 

As the editor of ELF, I feel I have the obligation to dabble in every single little hidden and not hidden store, farm, field, trailhead, pond, café, restaurant, winery, brewery and activity this region has to offer.

So after hearing about the Quechee … Continue reading Quechee Hot Air Balloon Festival

Impromptu Sunday

And what I really mean by that title is “A Recipe for Drumsticks as well as an Attempt to Turn Uncontrollable Feelings and Word Vomit into a Thoughtful Consideration on Women in the World.” But seriously. Even when you plan to do nothing on Sunday, something always seems to pop up and either distract you from having an absolutely lazy Sunday, or you become absolutely distracted from doing whatever … Continue reading Impromptu Sunday

Brattleboro Baconfest: Bacon, Blues & Brews

Emma and I decided to take advantage of our free Saturday to go to the Brattleboro BaconFest. I heard about it on WINQ Country radio, one of the few stations we get in Keene, and thought, “That sounds like an adventure,” and I figured given my new paleo diet restrictions (Meat, vegetables, fruit, nuts, seeds, and water ONLY) it would be a perfect outlet before … Continue reading Brattleboro Baconfest: Bacon, Blues & Brews
