Hello my Foodie Friends.  Summer is a wonderful time to entertain with family and friends. Many times when we have guests coming over or when we are visiting others, deciding on what to serve or bring can be a quest.  On a visit to Maine last year, I ventured into a bakery that served strawberry and cream popovers – which Paula and I had to try!  The popover featured the typical high-rise crown and was sweet providing a perfect fix…
On a recent Wednesday at the Saratoga Farmers’ Market, Jack Powell and his three-man band the Zucchini Brothers were performing. Powell grinned as a mother and child began tapping their feet to the beats.  Then, as the child started to waddle in rhythm with the music and the mother began to video the moment on her cell phone, Powell asked for the name of the child. He received the answer, began improvising and within seconds was singing lyrics interspersed with…
Hello my Foodie Friends. Grilling in our backyards during the month of July is among my favorite summertime pastimes. One tool that can help those who are firing up in the backyard, is the bamboo skewer. Creating food on a stick offers the ability to be creative and to offer various food choices for your family and guests. Serving food on a stick is not only convenient, but it’s also fun! Foods to Make with Bamboo Skewers Shish kebabs on…
Delightfully delicious days at the Saratoga Farmers’ Market are getting better, with the addition of several new vendors in the Saturday market’s food court. Among the new offerings are crepes hot off the griddle, made by Jon Dickinson of Dickinson’s Delights. Dickinson prepares the crepes with as many fresh vegetables and cheeses that he can purchase from the market’s produce and dairy vendors himself. In fact, if you were to get to the market early, you might find him strolling…

Hello my Foodie Friends.  Happy start to the summer!  With summer, comes entertainment and happy times with our family and friends.  One of my wife’s favorite times is to enjoy the creative Martini’s made by one of our good friends. The classic Martini is a cocktail that dates back to the 1880’s made with “dry” vermouth.  The popularity of the Martini emerged in the 1950’s with the addition of gin to it, and vodka in the 1970’s.  Product placement in…
Throughout his nomadic life, one thing has remained consistent for Mark Gallucci: his love for baking.  That passion drove him to start his one-man operation, Middle Grove Bakehouse, originating in the town of the same name, just west of Saratoga Springs. Gallucci is among the new Wednesday vendors at the Saratoga Farmers’ Market, where he offers an array of homemade baguettes, sourdough and whole wheat breads, as well as a sour cream coffee cake.  Gallucci has been a baker with…
Hello my foodie friends. It looks like the nice weather has finally arrived and has stayed!!  The season between Memorial Day and Labor Day brings the opportunity to host many outside events.  Having a picnic with family and friends on a beautiful day can be a time that creates those unforgettable moments and memories that last a life time.   Having or attending a picnic remains one of my favorite things to do during the summer.  This stems back to…
Count me among the 95 percent of home gardeners who want to grow tomatoes – and among the many who count on the expertise of the veteran Saratoga Farmers’ Market vegetable plant growers to help me do it. When I shopped for tomato plants in mid-May, I wanted an heirloom variety that would produce large tasty fruits for my favorite tomato sandwiches. Hybrids are bred so that the plants are more disease resistant and higher producing. The fruits also have…
