Hello my Foodie Friends! Guess what weekend this is! Yes it’s the weekend before Valentine’s Day and I know the quickest way to someone’s heart is great cooking! I grew up in an Italian/ Irish household (passionate mix). My fondest childhood memories were of all of my Aunts and Uncles coming over with my cousins. The house was full of activity, laughter, and of course, tons of food. The women in our family would conjure up traditional family recipes for…
Hello my Foodie Friends! Are you getting ready to prepare some great Super Bowl Recipes for this weekend’s game? The use of cast iron cookware is an incredible way to prepare some of your favorite Super Bowl dishes. I have mentioned some pieces in the past but today I am highlighting the best cast iron cookware company in the world; Lodge Manufacturing Company! Cast Iron, a form of cookware developed over a millennia ago remains as popular as when it…
What’s the secret to a great chowder? According to Dave DeLozier, chowder chef for Moby Rick’s Seafood Company, the retail outlet for the Saratoga Farmers’ Market’s Pura Vida Fisheries, it’s all about the base “That’s the hardest thing to get right,” said DeLozier. DeLozier spoke with me last weekend at Moby Rick’s, after I had sampled his contribution to this weekend’s annual Chowderfest at the Pura Vida stall at the Saratoga Farmers’ Market, which – perhaps unpredictably – includes neither…
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…
Hello my Foodie Friends! I love coffee and espresso! There are many studies that proclaim coffee is good for you and there are some that say otherwise. I choose to believe that in moderation, coffee is good for you. Coffee doesn’t just give you the energy to function properly in the morning; studies show that it may also be extremely good for you. Many studies have shown that coffee may be one of the healthiest beverages on the planet. Here…
