One the second weekend of December in the Mount Washington Valley there is a Cookie Tour taking place. For the last 13 years on this weekend, 15 Inns open their doors and their kitchens and serve up cookies to the several hundred guests who walk through. This is one of the sweetest weekends you can imagine. All of the 15 inns offer special packages so that you can stay at one of them and enjoy being right in the middle of things. Al and I stayed at the Riverbend Inn which I have to say is a great choice since not only is it lovely but it is located near one end of the tour. Tickets for the two day tour are $27 each person. What you receive are a ticket which...Read More

If you are looking for somewhere that is a little off the beaten track then the Darby Field Inn is the perfect place to stay or in our case to eat dinner. I think their website says it best "Only 6 miles from North Conway, yet right in the middle of nowhere". They are far enough out in the wilderness to have their own cross country skiing trails which are wonderful to mountain bike or hike in the warmer weather. The evening we were there for dinner they were offering sleigh rides, which would certainly be a romantic way to start or end your dining experience.The dining room is set up to enhance the romantic dining experience. The tables have crisp while linens and candles burning. There a...Read More

Restaurant | "A Good Family Dining Choice"

Located in West Ossippe New Hampshire this is a family style restaurant that has a little more to offer than just the pedestrian. I decided to start with baked brie. Now I have had many baked bries in my time and this is one of the most unique. Being partially French Canadian I was not raised on breast milk but rather on maple syrup. The baked brie here comes in an individual lasagna dish; it is a pie shaped wedge of cheese with the rind attached that is swimming in a sea of maple syrup. The lasagna plate sits on a plate surrounded by crackers. A plate of orange pieces and grapes accompanies it. Brie and maple syrup at first sounds like a weird pairing but the combination is divine. The s...Read More

New England was hit by the ice storm of the century the second week of December. That was the weekend we were driving up to New Hampshire to take part in the Inn to Inn cookie tour. Luckily by the time we were driving up on Friday the roads were very clear but the trees along the road were a sight to behold. We were staying for two nights at one of the Inns on the tour, The Riverbend Inn. We have not traveled in this area for years and definitely needed our GPS to find the best route. The Inn is located right on route 16 which is one of the main roads in the area. It is set well off the road, as a matter of fact you can’t see it from the road but it is well marked. It looks lik...Read More

L.L. Bean Outlet StoreAnyone who is familiar with this Maine store can appreciate how great it is to have an outlet store. They sell quality apparel, camping and sports goods and a variety of other unusual items. They are known for their outerwear and bargains were available. There was fleece available both in jackets and vests. Beautiful woolen and 100% cotton sweaters as well. They had bargain tables with items at 50% off of the usual outlet price. That’s where they got me. I started looking at the woman’s long underwear. They were offering merino wool and model. Since I can’t wear wool of any kind the model was calling my name. No I don’t wear thermal underwear but it makes a nice top w...Read More
