tina-bapp-5.jpgHey foodie friends! Did anyone make it out for Taste Of The North Country yesterday? The weather was perfect, the crowd was big and the food was delicious! Restaurants in Downtown Glens Falls, QueensburyLake George, South Glens Falls and more of the surrounding areas participated and did an outstanding job!

Queensbury local and awesome photographer, Tina Bapp of Tina Bapp Photography was smart and creative enough to take advantage of the view from the parking garage in Downtown Glens Falls to get some great shots!
crusher.jpgHey foodie friends! We have found the perfect tool for crushing tomatoes to make sauce! Thank you William Sanoma for offering this awesome gadget at a great price. 

This thing suctions to the counter. You don't have to peel the tomatoes. Put them in cut in half, crank the handle and the seeds and skins are separated out, leaving you with pure tomato pulp to make sauce

Awesome find and I wanted to share it with you all.

Lucky girl that I am, not only do I have my own herbs that have provided a great bounty all summer and continue to do so. I have great friends with gardens and farmers' markets to provide me with the freshest organic produce
balloon-festival.jpgHey foodie friends! I can't believe it, but here we are counting down the last few days of summer. Fortunately for those of us lucky enough to live in the Adirondack region, we have the perfect event to kick off our fall season each year. Adirondack Balloon Festival weekend is almost here!

This year is having a contest. I wanted to share with you because you could win a FREE balloon ride for two at the Adirondack Balloon Festival!

Now, let's talk food...
Hey foodie friends! This week I wanted to share a quick and easy recipe for spare ribs that I got from a friend. 

Football season is here and comfort food season is approaching. 

Spare ribs are great to make for a football party or a family dinner! I'm definitely adding this recipe to our list of Touchdown Worthy Bites!

Put the ingredients together in your crock pot the night before. Pop it in in the fridge, so all you have to do in the morning is take it out and turn it on low for the day. 

Ellen cooked these for 8 hours on low.

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.
