Hello my Foodie Friends. I love Pasta. There, I said it. It is a weakness I have. Homemade pasta is a bigger weakness. Once you experience homemade pasta, it is close to impossible to go back to the store brand pastas. Making homemade pasta can require extra time – but it is worth it. If you haven’t ventured past the convenience of dried pasta, it’s time to make some changes in your life. We have nothing against dried pasta —…
Did you know that the sweet potato is one of the most nutritious vegetables on the planet? This orange tuber offers an unsurpassed source of beta carotene; providing 214 percent of the daily requirement for Vitamin A in a single cup serving and a significant source of Vitamin C, manganese, Vitamin B6, and potassium. That single cup serving contains only 180 calories and no fat. Paul Arnold, of Pleasant Valley Farm, is one of the Saratoga Farmers’ Market vendors who…
Hello my Foodie Friends. The winter months are a great time to make those heartier dishes that stick to your ribs. One of our favorite dishes is Eggplant Parmigiana. When my wife Paula was at the end of her due dates for our children, she was always encouraged by the Italian women in the family to eat Italian food to induce her labor. We won’t promise you that by eating eggplant parmigiana you are guaranteed to go into labor, but…
For scores of fitness enthusiasts, the Saratoga Farmers’ Market is one stop on the path to an active weekend. They might be members of the Saratoga Stryders running club, en route to or from their Saturday morning group run in the Spa State Park. Or they might be coming to the market before donning cross country skis or snowshoes with plans to traverse snow-covered trails. Fitness fans come to market in running tights, ski jackets, and yoga pants, filling their…

Many studies have shown that coffee may be one of the healthiest beverages on the planet. Here…

There’s been a sweet addition to the Saratoga Farmers’ Market – Slate Valley Farms. Slate Valley sells maple syrup, honey, and an array of related products including spun maple sugar, molded maple sugar, maple sugar, and maple cream. All of the syrup and honey is produced on the 101-acre family-run farm in the hills of Granville near the Vermont border.

Hello my Foodie Friends! Happy 2017!! Making New Year’s resolutions and resolving to change and improve yourself and your life is an almost unavoidable part of the transition to a new year. Though it’s a pretty well documented fact that most New Year’s resolutions fail, we keep making them—and we’re not alone. The custom of making New Year’s resolutions is most common in the West, but it happens all over the world. Losing weight, eating healthier, getting fit, improving our…
Many of us recall growing up with a container of bacon grease near the kitchen stove. My family did not eat a lot of fried food, but a little dab of the melted bacon grease often offered an economical and flavorful way to fry fresh perch, not to mention eggs and pancakes. Bacon grease from pastured pork is way too flavorful to pitch out. It adds a delicious flavoring to roasted root vegetables, a base for sauteing fresh greens such…
