Last weekend, Jen and I went had a great time on the Saratoga Springs Food Tour. The tour took us around downtown Saratoga where we sampled some of the best foods of the area, and even learned a little history too! 

We started off at the Saratoga Farmers Market where we met up with our private tour guide Joe. Our first stop was So Lively Tapenade where we we tried some delicious homemade red pepper chips.



Last night, two chefs from the Capital Region battled it out in an "Iron Chef" style competition! It was game on between Albany vs. Saratoga as Chef John Ireland of Panza's Restaurant and A.J. Jayapal of The Brown Derby Restaurant went head to head to see who could be labeled the ultimate culinary mastermind. The chefs were told seconds before the competition what the secret ingredient was (a lemon!) which had to be used in each part of the meal - the appetizer, main entree and dessert.

It's almost Mother's Day and in many household's it's a tradition to treat your mother to a beautiful meal.Whether it's brunch, dinner or even a yummy desert, your mother deserves something special! There are many local places offering delicious meals for you and your family!
Cinco De Mayo is this Saturday May 5th. Have a little celebration of your own this year! 

In honor of this upcoming holiday we've put together a delightful dessert/snack recipe Cinnamon Tortilla Crisps.

Mary Longley Beside cooking being my middle name, most people call me Mary. My cooking experience started out of necessity, and with lots of successes and not so successful gourmet delights, I learned to be a little creative with some foods and found things that stay consistently on my list. Spending time in the kitchen is therapy for me and entertaining to share the successes. I look forward to sharing some of my creativity with everyone.
