bands-beans-people.pngHey foodie friends! The final weekend of the Lake George Winter Carnival is behind us. It's time to start thinking spring! One annual event that really gets me feeling spring fever is Bands 'N Beans at Roaring Brook Ranch in Lake George

Bands 'N Beans is a great local event that combines 2 of my favorite things; great live music from numerous local bands and a chili cook off!

One of my favorite events of the year is Super Bowl Sunday! short of having Super Bowl Tickets, there is nothing I like more than going to parties on Super Bowl Sunday or having one of my own.

Happy Sunday foodie friends! With the fall herb harvest in full swing, I've heard a lot of people say that they don't like rosemary. 

What? Is my typical response. I usually then continue on and say, rosemary is great in so many things! You're missing out. 

After listening to many friends tell me why they don't really like it, I have learned that most people don't like it because they feel it is like eating pine needles. 

Here is a very simple way to solve that problem and begin to enjoy this delicious herb! 
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.

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.
