A Big Wine!

On a random winter Saturday, we decided to open a big bottle of wine. B-I-G big! We brought two up from the cellar to decide. Both bottles were gifts from our Wine, Wit and Wisdom Shower, an engagement party-slash-Jack and […]


Back at Ippudo, With Karen!

Heading to a Broadway show with an out-of-towner? Only one place to go these days: Ippudo. SCF fans will recognize most dishes here (previous Ippudo coverage here and here), so we’ll just go with a visual post this time. But […]


Maura’s Kitchen in Nyack: A Reboot!

Wow! Who knew!? The last time we went to Maura’s Kitchen, it was to pick up some terrific roast chicken takeout. This time, we’re sipping pisco sours and guffawing over how delicious the ceviche is. Yes, it appears that Maura’s […]


Fall at the Farmers Market, With Karen!

Karen is visiting from Australia, and spent a quiet weekend with us here at the farm. First outing: Chappaqua Farmers Market for Doughnation Pizza (not pictured) and pumpkin picking (pictured). Here are a few sweet pics. Related posts: Chappaqua Farmers […]


Visiting The 9/11 Memorial

With Karen in town covering the UN General Assembly, we thought it a good time to visit the 9/11 Memorial for the first time. We met her down there for a quick visit. Related posts: On a Hot Memorial Day, […]


To Harry’s, with Karen

Karen, in to cover the UN, spent the night Friday, and we had a rollicking time on the porch with the neighbors. In the morning, we headed downtown for a walk and some eggs. Harry’s! Chicken tinga tacos for me! […]

Art Barge Light Bike Trip

Karen and I did a redux of the Art Barge Bike Trip that Patrick, Greg and I did two years earlier. Well, almost. We didn’t go to the Fellini Fish Farm. And we didn’t actually go to Art Barge. Hence, […]


Amagansett, Day 1

We’re back in Amagansett for a week of beach life. A little beach time during the day. A little dinner for the kids. Then babysitter comes to the unit and we head to the beach for magic hour. Cheers! Related […]


Lunch at ABC Kitchen

We adored our lunch at ABC Kitchen. You just feel like you’re dining in New York. Something about it — the local farm-to-table menu, the relaxed but beautiful setting, the here-and-now feeling of the food — just make you feel […]


Dinner at Harvest on Hudson

Our dinner at Harvest on Hudson was for a Restaurants We Love column for The Journal News, so I won’t go in to too much detail here. Instead, you can read the article over at LoHud.com on this link here. […]

Greg had to work, but Karen and I headed out to the Ranch on Sunday for a lovely Sunday supper of lamb chops with Charmoula spices.   Related posts: Sunday Supper at the Ranch Sunday Supper at the Ranch Supper […]


Back at the Art Cafe in Nyack

Are you sick of us going to Art Cafe yet? At least we tried some new dishes this time — and we had some new faces, too. Karen, Tasha and Shannon. No matter who is dining with us, though, we […]


A Simple Saturday Supper

After an enormous meal at M. Wells for dinner, we decided to go for a light supper of sips and snacks back at the farm. We shook up a shaker of The Bone, and made some Rancho Gordo popcorn. Related […]


Supper with the Whole Gang

Jessica and Kelly hosted the whole family for dinner on Friday night, including Sarah and Mae and Jane, and Kelly’s brother and sister-in-law Brady and Karen and their two girls. You might say it was a family reunion of sorts. […]
