So many of us have in the past, or perhaps not-so-distant past, made New Years resolutions. Many of us have probably failed them too (supposedly only about 12% succeed). I hope more of you have succeeded at them than failed though. But there’s also a reason that gym memberships surge in January, and then slowly […]
Over the past 20 years, the Village of Millerton, New York’s commercial Main Street has transformed itself into the Hudson Valley’s epicenter of antique shopping. Despite the populous nature of design-inspired shops in town, Millerton native Charlotte Sheridan, owner of Merwin Farm and Home, has managed to carve out her own unique identity within the […]
The holidays can be an extremely stressful time for a lot of people. To exacerbate the stress, pile on the pandemic and all that it entails. The very thought of the two can set any of us off in a panic. But there are ways that we can regain and maintain control, and calm our […]

When it’s fluffing cold out (just like now after this latest Nor’easter) there’s nothing better than coming in after shoveling to a warm soup… or maybe to some this might be considered a stew? Call it what you will, the point is this: it is hearty and delicious!
