LET’S BE HONEST: As snow blankets the ground and overnight lows dip below zero, going outdoors to garden is probably not on your mind. If you’re like me, you’re most likely keeping yourself warm by a fire. One of my favorite things about winter, however, is dreaming about spring and the opportunity to create new growth. Aiding those dreams is the stack of seed catalogs that start arriving in my mailbox around mid-November. These catalogs tantalize my taste buds almost…
Hello my Foodie Friends. This winter is certainly giving us a season of snow and arctic cold. As I glance out into the white wonderland, I reflect on some of my fondest childhood memories playing in the snow. I grew up during a time when the average was at least four children per household and you were literally thrown outdoors to play and told not to come back home until the street lights came on. Playing in the snow included…

  Saratoga winters are harsh. It’s cold. The snow keeps coming. We can play in the fresh drifts and warm ourselves by the fire. But ultimately the taste buds start crying for something  crunchy, tangy, and fresh.  Celeriac might be the salve.    This beige, knobby root vegetable typically makes its appearance at the Saratoga Farmers’ Market just before Christmas. Currently, it is available from Gomez VeggieVille, whose members swear by the root. According to Valentina Gomez, it is celery…
Hello my Foodie Friends. Being next door to a movie theatre is perfect for me – since I love so many of the classic movies that can still be readily seen. When you walk into our new location at 33 Railroad Place in Saratoga Springs, you will see a large advertising print of the movie “Moonstruck.” I often think of one of my favorite movie quotes about coffee when I look at the movie poster. Coffee has had a presence…

Jan. 6 marks the first Saratoga Farmers’ Market of 2018. It also rings in the market’s 40th year.  For many longtime vendors, the milestone marks a moment of pride. It affirms that the Saratoga Farmers’ Market mission of supporting Saratoga with fresh farm foods continues to thrive. Farmers’ markets have deep roots in American society, dating back to Native American trading spaces. Markets all but disappeared after World War II, however, as a result of corporate agriculture and the arrival…
Hello my Foodie Friends! One of our family’s favorite food is pizza; especially Paula’s homemade pizza.  Pizza is an excellent all around family food that every person can personalize and enjoy on the day it is cooked, or the following day (Breakfast Pizza?).  It is also a perfect “on the go” food to help with the crazy schedules that we all have. Back in the days before children, pizza was a frequent meal for Paula and me. Our lives were…
