Love and spice are great bedfellows, but often these days I find that too much spice can snuff out the flavor.  There is nothing like  spice for a romantic dinner that lingers on the palate without smothering the flavors.  Smoked peppers, Saffron and chocolate finished with a splash of Patron Tequila will certainly inspire a love-filled night.  Smoked peppers are great during […]

The leaves on the North Fork don’t really change until the end of October with colors piquing in November. The farmstands along Routes 25 and 48 are packed with miles of pumpkins of all different types and sizes. I love anything made with pumpkin, especially at breakfast.
If you have a chance to head out to the North Fork, stop at any of our farmstands and pick up a cheese pumpkin for a pumpkin bread to serve in place of coffee cake for breakfast with some delicate Spinach-baked eggs.

A pint of strawberries picked at the Strawberry Festival in Mattituck and a stop at a local vineyard for some North Fork Rose will make up the only party kit you’ll need for summer fun. Prep […]
