Where You Can Pick Blueberries in Maine

If you’re looking for a farm that will let you pick your own blueberries, you’re in luck because there are several in Maine. Most places are opening mid to late July, but some not until the first of August. If a farm has a website or Facebook page, I included a link.

The 80th Anniversary Season at the Ogunquit Playhouse kicks off with Always, Patsy Cline

The 80th Anniversary Season at the Ogunquit Playhouse kicks off with Always, Patsy Cline, on stage from May 23 through June 16. This show is told through the letters of star-struck fan Louise Seger, portrayed by Emmy Award winning actress, Sally Struthers. This popular musical, which has enjoyed great success both off-Broadway and across the nation, is based on the true story of Cline’s friendship with Seger, who befriended the star in a Texas honky-tonk in l961 and continued a correspondence with Cline until her death. Featuring the unforgettable hits of the Country Music mega-star, this funny and touching tribute celebrates the career and life of the singer who died tragically in a plane crash in 1963.

A Pilgrimage to Bard

A Pilgrimage to Bard

It has been a whole month since I opened my on-line bake shop and it truly feels as though so much has changed.

I have way less sleep under my belt for instance and my kitchen smells like pastry all the time, which is actually fantastic.

A new business, I have discovered has lots of growing pains but the highlights far exceed the difficult moments.

When my website first launched I started to send out e-mails to local businesses because frankly, I had no idea what I was doing. How do you get in touch with people who you want to sell things to? Especially without sounding like you are just a lowly salesperson. It's more difficult than ever in this electronic age to make face contact with those you need to step into success. So, I sent out a simple message to as many places as I could that fit my food morals. Only one responded and that was Bard Coffee in Portland. My e-mail happened to coincide with the soon to be vacant spot they had for a baker.

Serendipitous Success: Harvest on the Harbor

Serendipitous Success: Harvest on the Harbor

The first time I saw: Eat Your Plate on the Harvest on the Harbor Website, I felt anxious, delighted, excited, nervous, I mean, a vast array of emotions.

And since that evening when it was first brought to my attention I have thought about it in waking and in sleep.

As the days came closer, I worked furiously in the kitchen making 2,000 biscotti, 500 cupcakes and 20 sheets of blueberry layer cake for the Lobster Chef of the Year event. Oh and I must not forget the countless batches of chocolate ganache buttercream frosting to top all the cupcakes. Towards the end of the week I started to feel defeated. The only thing that kept me going was the thought of sharing my food with hundreds of people.
