Ring In The New Year With Homemade Irish Cream (Recipe Included)

Comments Off on Ring In The New Year With Homemade Irish Cream (Recipe Included)

After the rocky economy and related bumps along the way in 2009, everyone is looking for a smoother New Year.  Indulge your guests this evening with a toast with Homemade Irish Cream, a creamy indulgence that makes any worries melt away.  At least, shall we say, for the moment. I confess, for a celebratory toast I’m always partial to something sweet.  But as I started reading labels of my favorite commercial liquors I realized how much of that sweetness came from high fructose corn syrup and other additives.  With that motivation, I started experimenting with various homespun versions on our B&B guests at Inn Serendipity (didn’t need to twist any arms there), and this Irish Cream (kind of like a Baileys) quickly became the house favorite. By controlling the ingredients that go in the drink, you can opt for better quality items like organic cream (I use Organic Valley ), fair trade cocoa (our B&B orders cocoa from Equal Exchange by the case), and sugar (we buy bulk from Wholesome Sweeteners ).  Skimp a little on the whiskey if you need to.  A cheap variety would work just as well as it will be masked by the other flavors.

Four Fresh Perspectives On Holiday Food Traditions: Egg Rolls, Sour Dough Bread and Mocha Cake

Comments Off on Four Fresh Perspectives On Holiday Food Traditions: Egg Rolls, Sour Dough Bread and Mocha Cake

Don’t call me Scrooge, but it took me till my thirties to confront the fact that I don’t honestly like most traditional holiday foods.  Gingerbread?  I’d prefer chocolate any day.  Eggnog?  Pour me a daiquiri.  And don’t get me started on fruitcake. During my childhood and for years after, guilt motivated my holiday food choices.  I felt compelled to please and fit the traditional cookie cutter mold, loading my plate with ethnic specialties from my Baltic roots that I couldn’t pronounce and smiled as well-intended relatives asked for confirmation. As I came of age into marriage and parenthood, motivated by the fact that my waistline clearly indicated I had a finite daily calorie count allotment, holiday priorities changed.   The more I wrote about and advocated within the food scene, I rekindled the celebratory side of food.  Eat to enjoy, share and make merry.  Not because your mother spent all day making Latvian blood sausage

The new green economy is putting more robots to work in green jobs , especially in environmental research and related fields.  In a sustainability twofer, many of the new machines are powered by solar energy and other green alternatives.  Click through the show to see what’s up with some of our circuit-centric friends. 1.  Robolobster Northeastern University is developing a remote environmental data gathering robot that resembles an eight legged lobster.  The robot is designed to maneuver across rough surfaces while negotiating surging water and shifting currents, making it ideal for exploring rivers and littoral zones (ocean shore areas up to the high water mark).

Comments Off on Savoring Gratitude: Three Tips toward Thanksgiving Appreciation

As we head into the Thanksgiving season, all eyes (and mouths) fixate on that key holiday ingredient:  food.  From turkeys to pumpkin pie, Thanksgiving gifts us with a list of seasonal traditions that celebrate our love for good food.  While these all rank important holiday elements, let’s not miss the key ingredient rooted in the inherent concept of Thanksgiving:  gratitude. A mindset of green gratitude emphasizes positive abundance, relishing the glass half full perspective.  An important concept to keep on the front burner, especially as tanking economies fuel table conversations that tend to serve up sentiments of fear, scarcity and deprivation
