  1. Firebird Cafe

    Firebird Café: Essex Junction, VT

    $0.00

    After leaving Montpelier we decided to start looking for a place to have lunch as we approached Burlington. We exited just before Burlington, but couldn’t find any restaurants close to I-89. Since we had our Garmin GPS to get back on track, we continued about five miles down the road until we came to Essex Junction and saw the Firebird Café on the left-hand side. Since this was obviously a local place and not a fast-food chain, we decided to stop and check it out.

    London’s Food, Glorious Food

    $0.00

    Remember when… English food was considered abominable? Except for we English who loved it, didn’t know better, and it wasn’t until the advent of the early Chinese and Indian cafes that we knew any other cuisine or cooking.  But over the years, especially with the EU making crossing borders easy, the wonderful influx of young chefs from France, Italy, Spain, Germany, etc., has brought fine dining to an Art form in London and beyond.  Let’s take a look at some of the venerable restaurants in London, and it’s all about adapting tried and true establishments adapting to the “latest” trends

  6. Fish and chips

    Best Fish and Chips

    $0.00

    I have ordered fish and chips through the years all across the country. It is a favorite for me and, I know for a lot of you! It is always a good idea to ask the particular restaurant what fish they are using. The best is sole, flounder, grouper or cod. You do not want the batter too thick, its perfect when there is a flakiness to the batter and not too greasy. The chips are the best when they are fresh cut fries. Many times you also will get a small dish of coleslaw. Last and not least is the tartar sauce, I have had yummy tartar sauce and not so yummy tartar sauce. It should be good so you can dip!

  7. Freelance Cafe

    Freelance Café: Piermont, NY

    $0.00

    This is a true family affair and I personally know the family and so adore them! The executive chef, Peter Kelly is truly one of the most respected chefs in the country. His restaurants are so close to Manhattan and are as any of the top ones there. I ate at Freelance so often when I lived in South Nyack. I got to know Peter and others in his family. Ned, his brother is the first person you see when you enter the restaurant and probably the last as you leave. He is so gracious as the man in the front of the house.

    Oasis of Dining Options Are Ready For Diabetic Individuals on Cruises

    $0.00

    We wanted to take the family on one final vacation, but weren’t sure where to go.  We decided to go on the Oasis of the Seas, one of the largest cruise ships in the world.  I was excited, but cautious about dining options.  As a Diabetic type 2 insulin dependent individual I was determined to keep my blood sugar in check while still having a great time, and enjoying everything.  A little pre cruise awareness was helpful, so I asked for a refrigerator in the room, a sharps container and activity options.  I also looked into the food choices carefully, both from healthy food availability, and cost.

    The Queen Mary 2 Voyage - Everything You Hoped for in Luxury Cruising: Part 3

    $0.00

    The everyday food onboard ship is absolutely amazing!  Kudos to the Executive Chef, his sous-Chefs, and “the lines”,  plus all the kitchen workers who so diligently produced fine food at every meal.  Breakfast is a wonderful mixture of choices – the traditional English fare, solid, well cooked and tasty (bacon being the biggest treat it seemed!).  There were the Continental breakfasts more on the French style, and then the hearty German ones laden with processed meats and cheeses.  It seemed that everyone subscribed to the English tradition of eating a hearty breakfast to set you up for the rest of the day.

    Athens, Greece: Birthplace of Democracy

    $0.00

    On a first visit to Athens, one will be surprised to find ancient relics intermixed with new construction of a cafe, hotel or boutique!  I was amazed to enjoy an early morning cappuccino alongside an ancient Roman statue! To build a city among ancient ruins reminds me of just one other city – Jerusalem.  I am amazed that city officials can keep tourists from pilferage these ancient ruins!

    Dive Right In: Cobalt Coast Resort & Suites - Grand Cayman Islands

    $0.00

    You can thank the wind and Christopher Columbus for discovering the Cayman Islands. His ship blew off course on his final voyage to the New World and he landed on two islands filled with turtles, which he named “Las Tortugas.” The Caymans are a British Overseas Territory located south of Cuba and Northwest of Jamaica. They are known for their diving, so I decided to fill you in on a Dive Resort that, for this area, is a value. The Islands are a financial center, so this is not a bargain destination, but the Cobalt Coast Resort and Suites won’t break the bank.

    Bavarian Inn: Frankenmuth, Michigan

    $0.00

    Baby its cold outside – what a perfect time to pack up the grand kids or just yourself and head to Michigan and the Bavarian Inn. If traveling to Germany with the family is not an option this year, then have no fear, this will satisfy the thirst until then. The Inn is a family run business from the ground up, so great care is taken to make you feel welcome, comfortable and well fed. Here's what the President, Judy Zehnder Keller had to say, “Family is everything to us. My mother Dorothy, at nearly age 91, is still very active in the kitchen, my brother Bill and I along with our spouses oversee the restaurant and lodge. We both have two of our children in the business, nearly nine family members in senior management at this time. There are four in the fourth generation, four in the third generation and one in the second generation. It is a blessing and an honor to work with family.” I don't know about you, but this is the kind of place that I want to visit.
