He exudes all the qualities and spirit of a true local trying to serve his community and offer fresh healthy food for the masses. Today is a 50% tip day in my book of life!
And just as James Dowd promised, it truly is THE BEST fresh made falafel on this side of the planet!

Last night I got the chance to sample the absolute best sauerkraut I’ve ever tasted, no doubt! After talking with Kristin and Dylan Lindquist, the owners and creators, you quickly realize how much passion and excitement has gone into creating this very unique product right here in Cape Ann. It’s small batches, hand made, locally sourced, and damn tasty. What’s not to love? For more on their story please go to their new website http://www.pigeoncoveferments.com and have a look, or like them on Facebook.
Meanwhile, plan on going down to see them for free beer and samples tonight Aug.6th from 5:30 until @ 10 Blackburn Center, Gloucester Ma 01930.
With 4 flavors for sale, and another on the way, you will not be disappointed! TRUST ME!
A fantastic logo for an amazing product.
Ingredients samples, and the hand powered shredder!

You can see the flavor!
Dylan discusses flavors.
Kristen shares a beer! (free beer tonight, too)
Mega Happy Customers!

Ahhh Garlic Dill, dear god!
Turmeric Ginger, 2 DIE 4!
Salsa (it’s not salsa flavor, you have to try it to believe!)
THE MYSTER KRAUT soon to come out! (asian style?)
Hungry? Pack light. You’ll pass great sandwich shops, locally owned and operated, en route to Gloucester’s magnificent beaches. Jeff’s Variety can set you up for a good lunch to go wherever you’re headed including Good Harbor Beach, Long Beach, or the back shore. Jeff says that there are many repeat customers that come back each and every season–for years–on their way to Good Harbor Beach. IF you have a big group, you can order trays with finger sandwiches. Sandwich platters featuring Virgilio’s rolls need at least two days notice to prepare. They’re open Sundays. What else? “Yes!” the answer to my question if they have plenty of call ahead requests from cars caught in traffic. Passengers calling only, please!
Scroll down the post for a one-stop, sub-shopping Gloucester directory with phone numbers and links. I could add in our favorite choices from each place.

Three Lantern Marine and Fishing TODAY is last day of their opening weekend and they have 15% off special sale. Grab a new fishing rod, lobster gear, clothing. Cross off your ‘back to beach’ list: they’re still some crab traps and nets on the shelves. You don’t have to wait for Fiesta for Ambie’s. He and his son are on site for Three Lantern customers. Wicked Tuna was on the scene.
Ambie is a twin. He has twins sons. AND one of his sons has twins. Three sets of twins in one family! I’ve heard fraternal twins run in families and that it’s on the maternal side. (I’ve also heard that’s rumor bunk.) Apparently multiples run on the dad’s side in this family.
Join Sister Felicia in her kitchen with friends and family as they have a blast while showing you how to make limoncello at home. She has 2 recipes for you in this video, the classic and the creamy styles of limoncello!

so easy. Set up the pit using the snake method. Rub down the ribs. Close the vents so you get around 275 degrees. Walk away for three hours.

Cover russet potatoes with olive oil and sprinkle top with Atlantic Saltworks Salt Flake. Put on grill for about an hour, vents wide open.
Hollow out the potatoes once soft put soft potatoes guts aside.
Mix up equal parts shredded cheddar and cream cheese and butter and add just a touch of your favorite BBQ rub for color and a little kick. Then add your potato guts and some chopped up cooked bacon and restuff the hollowed out potatoes.
Toss em on the grill before your steaks to get that cheesy goodness to melt all throughout the potato.
Once you got meltage, you’re good, time to eat!
- You will never look at Apple Crisp quite the same way after trying this recipe…It’s scrumptious!
Caramel Apple Crisp
A few years ago I created and posted this recipe…It’s become a fall favorite in our home…If you love caramel apples, and apple crisp, this is a must try recipe! I can’t wait to serve it for dessert tonight with a scoop of Vanilla Bean Gelato using apples from our dear friends Jeremy and Tanya Frost’s fruitful back yard Apple Tree! I have never seen a tree bearing 2 different verities of apples growing from a single tree trunk! Both the red Gala and yellow Golden Delicious tasted delicious! Jeremy held the ladder for me while I hand picked and filled 2 large bags last Saturday! The Frost’s apple tree was a magnificent sight in their yeard this year! Jeremy reported that this years harvest is the best in the past several years, and that this was the first year it beared two types of apples. Thank you for sharing your special tree with me, I’m having a great time in the kitchen whipping up our fall favorite confections and have also created a few new recipes that have been big hits!
