Simply Baked Salmon Salad
Contributed by Katy Morris
One (and we really mean just one) of the many reasons we flock to the The Granola Bar is that there really is something for all Westporters there.
Early morning, frothy cappuccino after dropping the kids off at school? Check. Fresh, simple, locally sourced seasonal ingredients? Check. Breakfast at lunchtime? Refreshing, healthy smoothie pick-me-up? Creative sandwiches (like one of our faves, the House Bubby) and plenty of other kosher-friendly, vegetarian, and even gluten-free choices? Check, check, check.
So maybe we are just telling you stuff you already knew…
In that case, you’re in luck, because there are some more things cooking in their kitchen that you might not have heard about yet! Continue reading

And while I’ve seen these favorite cookies in bakeries at other times of the year, nothing signals Purim more delightfully than the tradition of baking these sweet treats in your own kitchen. Continue reading
Food memories have become central to the stuff of culinary themed memoirs, lately.

With Thanksgiving one week away, there is still plenty of time to deliberate over the menu. One thing is for sure, though, and that is that I’ll be serving soup as a warming and tantalizing opener at our Autumnal Feast.
Dana Noorily was selected (by www.random.org) as the winner of my one year blog-iversary give-away!
She is already in touch with Naomi Sugar at 365scoops and will be receiving one quart of Sugar’s super rich, custom made ice cream as her prize.
Perhaps it’s beshert (destiny) that these two talented producers of specialty KOSHER artisanal products meet! Granola and ice cream get together, why don’t you?!
