Quarantine Mommy

I left the house for the second time since we self-quarantined – don’t worry, I didn’t see anyone or touch anything. (And to clarify, when I say that “I left the house,” I mean that I left our property – like went in the car and physically left the property and went out in the […]

Yeast-baking, Take #2

Well, it’s been a few days since my first yeast-based bread attempt – and ultimate fail. We planned on having pork tenderloin for dinner and so I felt like some nice, freshly-baked rolls would be an exciting fit to go with the pork. I went back to Pinterest and found some rolls that looked pretty […]

The Dos and Don’ts of the Mediterranean diet

According to quite a few doctors and cardiologists that I’ve spoken with, when it comes to a “diet” (and that’s not ‘diet’ as in you’re reducing the caloric intake and exercising to lose weight, but rather ‘diet’ as in how and what you eat) they all say that the best one for long-term health is […]

A classic cookie and a huge fail

It was Quarantine Day 2 over here at my house and so of course it was time to start baking. What else do you do when you’re home? Bake or cook, of course! I don’t consider myself an expert at any of it, but I can make a pretty good soup and I can bake […]

We be jammin’ at the Jam Food Shop

We here at Main Street have known the fine folks over at Jam Food Shop in Sharon, CT, for a number of years now and we certainly have our favorite dishes there. Although Jam is located within the Sharon Market, Jam is its own experience!

For those of you who are familiar with Jam, you might […]

52 Main now offers delivery, too!

I had meant to write about 52 Main’s fall menu last October – when I went there and fell in love with some of their new items. But life happens and I let it slip. But as each day of March passes us by, life gets more and more strange, and we learn to deal […]

Mommying Among Madness

This is a crazy time to be alive, let alone being a parent and dealing with this pandemic. One of the things that comes with being a parent is worrying about your child’s well-being, and when the world has been overtaken with a pandemic, you worry even more.

But I’m not turning this into yet another […]

Week 9 and 10: COVID-19

Our world and lives have changed dramatically in the time span of just a few weeks. And we are now ALL thinking of our health and well being in a very serious way. And for most of us, whether we like it or not, this virus has overtaken our lives in many ways: it’s all […]

Sharing is NOT caring.

We find ourselves with at least a good month left of winter. Once we get past St. Patty’s Day, winter is over – or at least it should just throw in the towel at that point in my opinion. And that goes for all of the winter bugs, too! By that third week in March […]
