soup
I love the seeing the leaves change and feeling the temperature drop slightly.  It is fall, the season of crisp days and cool nights.  The smell of warm mulled apple cider with fragrant cinnamon, clove and allspice is unparallel in my mind. It is also my favorite season to create food in.  After a summer of beautiful New Jersey tomatoes, corn & peaches, there is nothing I look forward to more then getting different kinds of apples, squashes, and cabbages to use for our menu.  Butternut squash soup is a staple of the fall season in most restaurants.  Roasted squash ...

A few weeks ago I was working on cleaning out the apartment of my aunt who had recently passed away. She was 88 on her last birthday and for many years lived alone.

He enjoyed a quiet lunch on the terrace, going unnoticed by others around him. This was a pretty nice surprise, and a great way to get our Sunday lunch off and running. Lunch will served on Sunday from 1:00pm to 5:00pm. Brunch is also being served, from 9:00am to 1:00pm. Our 60" wide, HD television will be featuring the local sports team...

lobster landing
I am quite partial to lobster rolls.  At the inn we offer a traditional lobster roll that is absolutely delicious.  However, just recently I experienced a lobster roll like no other.  Pure, simple joy!  If you are driving on Interstate 95 going north or south, you must stop in Clinton, CT and pay a visit to the Lobster Landing, you won’t be sorry.  On a recent trip to Newport, RI for the annual return-to-college excursion with my daughter, we were tipped off by one of the locals about this gem.  For $13.00 it is a big bite of heaven.  The secret…it’s a warm lobster roll, in a grilled bun, fill...
