A New Year Begins At Holbrook Farm

Holbrook Farm Market is now open for 2016. It’s an especially exciting year at the farm because The Holbrooks have passed the torch on to their energetic young farm manager Jessica Wong. We stopped in for a grand opening to celebrate and, of course, to stock up on local goodies.

Chai-Spiced Hot Cocoa

As a child growing up in New England there was nothing better than coming inside after playing out in the snow and making a cup of hot cocoa. It was part of the winter ritual. After yesterday's snow day, it only seems appropriate to share a recipe for a spiced up version of this classic winter drink.

Crunchy Protein Bites

January is all about New Year’s resolutions. I get that it’s the perfect time for a fresh start or a clean slate. I don’t do official resolutions. It’s too much pressure. Eat healthy, exercise - those are my perpetual promises to myself. Some days I do better than others. I’d rather think of it as an ongoing conscious lifestyle choice, with flexibility built in.

Get A Boost With Fire Cider

At this time of year, it seems like everyone you meet is sniffling, coughing, and should probably buy stock in facial tissue companies. At the first sign of any possible disturbance in the force, I head to the kitchen. Yup, the kitchen. It sounds crazy, but I typically have all the ingredients necessary for a bit of homemade immune boosting.

Uncorked Pops In New Canaan Dining Scene

I love when you walk into a restaurant and it feels like home. It’s warm, inviting, and a touch boisterous. Mix in good food and drink and it’s not really surprising that time flies; like when you start dinner at 7 pm, then suddenly realize it’s 12:30 am. That’s South End Uncorked in New Canaan.
