Thank you so much to Glens Falls Gourmet fan Jon Volks for putting these together for us! It was one of the most awesome and thoughtful gifts I received this holiday season!

This hot chocolate recipe will go to good use on this snowy day in Glens Falls!

charlotte-main.jpgThank you to Miss Charlotte for sharing these awesome gingerbread houses with us! 5 year old Charlotte is quite the over achiever in many ways. In this case she not only rocked one holiday gingerbread house. She made 2! 

Charlotte must have anticipated having sticky frosting fingers and enlisted the help of a photographer to take some shots. Thanks to Toby Dawes for these great photos!

Keeping some key foods on hand can make whipping up a great meal like this quick and easy. 

Look for items that are on sale when you grocery shop. Keep foods like canned, diced tomatoes, pasta, frozen shrimp, poultry or meats that thaw quickly on hand. A dash of olive oil, garlic, herbs & seasonings and you can whip up a great meal.

The market had some great mesclun greens, tomato, avocado & locally made, fresh mozzarella cheese on hand today. Add to that the great rib eyes that were on sale and we were good to go! Gus whipped up a nice fresh salad dressed with olive oil, lemon & fresh herbs for our side dish.

Thank you Meryl Dawes for being the first to share a holiday recipe & photo! I am excited to add this to our list of festive foods for the holidays! If you are looking for pie recipes to add to your holiday menu, this one looks lovely and Meryl has provided simple, yet detailed instructions for you! 

Thank you to her son Toby Dawes for the great photos! 

Happy holidays to the entire Dawes family and to all our Glens Falls Gourmet foodie friends! Keep the photos coming! We love them!
jay-lobster.jpgWe love photos submitted by our foodie friends! Jay & Jen never disappoint! Just when I think that bacon wrapped turkey is the ultimate, they surprise again with this dish! 

Are you in the mood for beef, chicken or seafood? Why decide when you can have them all? This looks amazing!

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.
