table-food.jpgHey foodie friends! 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. Time to round up some of our favorite recipes and get ready for the big game! 
Thumbnail image for WP_001058.jpgPhew! This was a labor of love. We honestly plan a day around chillin' and cooking spaghetti & meatballs. 

Some things are just better when you take the time and enjoy the process (and a glass or two of wine). 

This really is an easy meal, but it's just better when it has a chance to cook slow to let the flavors develop. 

Light a fire, open a bottle of wine and enjoy. It's SO worth it!
Hey foodie friends! Another great weekend in Glens Falls under our belts. Hoping we won't need bigger belts after the feast we had last night. 

The rotisserie that I bought to compliment our new grill is working out great. This may be our new favorite way to cook large cuts of meat. 

This weekend was a beef sirloin tip roast! We did sides of tender, white, grilled asparagus with Dijon mustard vinaigrette, roasted baby potatoes and an easy Italian marinated tomato/tuna summer salad over mixed greens!
healthy-potato-salad.jpgHi there foodie friends! This week we went on a quest to find a healthier potato salad recipe. Gus found a video Bobby Flay from the Food Network had posted and it looked really amazing, so we decided to try it. 

Fresh herbs from the garden, organic honey from Uncle Pat's Farm, fresh veggies and a little feta cheese and we were good to go!
plated-corned-beef.jpgSláinte foodie friends! My mother taught me that Gaelach Irish Toast when I was just a kid. It means  "To Your Health!" Now, you may not know that corned beef and cabbage is good for you, but it is! 

Like with any other meat that is high in fat, you should watch your portions, but a typical 3 ounce serving is only about 210 calories. Cabbage has lots of vitamin C and is high in folic acid. It has lots of fiber, so it helps to fill you! If you have potatoes with your dinner, leave the skins on for even more nutrients.

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.
