The first time I had a salmon dish like this was in Ithaca, New York. A few years ago, Scott had taken me to this secluded, yet rustic and beautiful bed and breakfast, outside of the main town. It was called Casper’s Farm & Villa. Michael, the host, prepared a gourmet meal for Scott and me that I would say was the third most memorable meal I’ve ever eaten. In my life! (First was Frances’ Lodge in Tuscany. Second was a Trattoria in Ravello.)
Scott and I just returned from a glorious, seven night cruise to the Caribbean. It was everything we wanted it to be. Romantic. Fun. Relaxing. The weather was perfect. The scenery was beautiful. And, the food was so delicious. I rarely eat 100% healthy on vacation. I just feel that it goes against what a vacation should be. Indulgence!
Yesterday, I made a delicious short rib ragu for our dear friends, from Nyack, New York. We travel to one another’s home at least once a year. This is an extraordinary couple whom I’ve known since I was eighteen years old!
New year. New me.
I know. What a cliche’. How many times have we made New Year’s resolutions that we failed to sustain? Too many to count, for me. However, I wanted to share a few goals I have for 2018. Hopefully, this will motivate you, while holding myself accountable.
Would you believe that I had never tried eggs benedict, before I was in my thirties? I’m ashamed to admit that I misjudged its delightfulness. While the origin of “eggs benedict” is somewhat disputed, I can share how this dish became an annual tradition at The House on High Street.
So, you’re hosting Thanksgiving, this year? Congratulations! Or, shall we say, Good Luck? Last year was our first Thanksgiving at The House on High Street. I remember feeling excited and nervous. Thankfully, it was a success. I think the best advice I can give you is to plan ahead and pace yourself. I actually created my own Thanksgiving Countdown! So, here are some tips for you in preparing for one of the greatest holidays, ever. Have fun!
