University of Georgia Bullgogs - University Food Services - "A Sunset Breakfast"

On October 13, 2011 the University of Georgia hosted a special event for their meal plan and community guests.  It was called “A Sunset Breakfast – Dawn Inspired Dishes Served at Dusk” and was planned to give their students the dining experience of breakfast at Bed and Breakfast establishments throughout the United States.  The menu featured 21 recipes from prominent B&B locations including Apple Cheddar Bread Pudding from Breakfast on the Connecticut.  My recipe was adapted by the University’s chefs and food production teams in order to serve the 8700 students who dine there daily.  The amount of ingredients used was staggering including 13 cases of apples, 317 loaves of bread, 67 gallons of maple syrup, and 181 pounds of cheddar cheese, just to name a few.  I am so glad I do not have to fed those numbers on a daily basis and I commend the University of Georgia Food Services team.

Long River Studio Celebrates 20 Years

Long River Studios Celebrates 20 Years

Located on Main Street in Lyme, NH, Long River Studios sits filled with the creative offerings of local artists & crafters.  A volunteer-run cooperative, Long River was formed in 1991 to try to connect local artists & crafters with the local community and help them make a living.  Currently, Long River represents 75 artists and crafts people from a wide sampling of medium.  Within its walls, you will find sculpture, photography, jewelry, needlework, painting and basketry just to highlight a few.  Long River Studios is open year round and hosts three annual exhibits.  Long River Studios is one of the focal points for the village of Lyme and once though its doors you get a feel for the New Hampshire region known as the Upper Valley.  If you stay at Breakfast on the Connecticut stop by Long River and pick up that one of a kind holiday gift.

The Dartmouth Aires Shine on NBC’s The Sing Off

The Dartmouth Aires At The Sing Off on NBC

Dartmouth College’s oldest a cappella group, the Dartmouth Aires were founded in 1946 as an offshoot of the Glee Club.  In the 1970s they broke away from the Glee Club and became an established independent college landmark.  They usually have 16 members but that may vary from term to term.  They arrange their own music and their membership pick their own songs based on the group’s tastes.  They were chosen as one of the 16 a capella groups to compete in 2011 NBC’s The Sing Off.  To date, they are a member of the final 6 remaining teams and I can see why.  They bring an energy to the competition that is amazing and a choice of music that is brilliant.  To date, they have performed tunes such as Higher Ground by Stevie Wonder and Pinball Wizard from the rock opera Tommy.  But last week’s performance of a Dartmouth Aires Sing A Queen Medley was truly electrifying!  So tune in on Monday night for The Sing Off on NBC at 8 pm – you will not be disappointed!
