Porch Picnics

I love being able to stay at The Hammocks at Canandaigua. It is such a beautiful community, and especially during the Summer I could spend all day on the spacious porches.

It's so much fun to go to the Farmers Market and pick up a few local specialities, pick up a bottle of New York State Dry Rose and some flowers. I love finding old quilts or bedspreads to sit on and enjoy the spread.

Summer Grilling

As a Lifestylist® I get to try lots of new products and go to interesting places. I've had the wonderful opportunity to spend a lot of time in the Finger Lakes area of New York State  at the Hammocks at Canandaigua this year and decided to do some grilling.

Many communities are insisting on electric grills when you live in an apartment or multi-family home so I thought I'd try one out and see if they can compete with the gas ones.

I was impressed! This was a grilled corn salad and chicken kabob with fresh peas and it was delicious.

Portage Pies

When you veer off schedule and off road you never know what you'll discover. I was traveling from Chautauqua to the Finger Lakes this week and remembered that Westfield NY is the home of the Grape Discovery Center and is where the Welch's company was founded. You can see the original Welch's factory from the road and I wanted to get photos so I parked by the town square and walked down to where it was. On the way I took photos of some of the beautiful historic buildings in the area and one of them had a sign that said Portage Pies -  pies for sale. A perfect pie is my favorite dessert so I couldn't resist, and I'm so glad that I didn't. When I inquired about what pies they had available the gentleman behind the counter thought they were sold out, but lucky for me, one cherry pie was in hiding.

My life has changed from that pie - there are no words, only gasps when I bit into the perfect, flaky crust and the cherries that hit the right tartness to them with a kiss of vanilla to keep you coming back for more. I was hooked.

Simple can be so much better - and this simple bite of perfection is something I'm going to remember for a long, long time.
