The American Revolution, chocolate, and our national historic treasures—
When Jews immigrated to America in their ever-evolving diaspora, they were not allowed to have slaves, so they turned to trade. Chocolate was the commodity which played an integral role in the development of important Newport landmarks, and indeed, many of Rhode Island's most valued national historic treasures.

New England Clam Chowder is a Rhode Island favorite hearty soup that feeds a crowd and comes from the sea, of course! An Ocean State original, made from quahogs...traditionally served after the "polar bear swim" on New Year's Day, this quahog clam chowder recipe is a keeper...

When we built Linden Cottage in 1980, kitchen countertops were not a particularly trendy real estate selling tool as granite and marble kitchen countertop property must-haves are today.
Thinking "utilitarian, easy to keep clean and germ-free" with a family of six and an ever "revolving" kitchen door, we installed a stainless steel countertop.
While stainless steel can foster an industrial, modern feel, Linden Cottage is just the opposite, traditional and somewhat eclectic in design and decoration.

This fruit strudel recipe is about the easiest breakfast treat or dinner dessert with a scoop of ice cream there is. Not much sugar and plenty of fruit wrapped in puff pastry from Pepperidge Farm. It reminds me of years ago when our daughter lived in California, we'd get this wonderful fresh strudel from a German bakery in Encinitas.
We awoke this second day of spring to snow here in Newport, so I decided to start baking.
