Nicole Duckworth’s Best Granola (And Duckworth’s Re-opening This Thursday Night!)

Nicole Duckworth Granola ©Kim Smith 2015As you may already be aware, Nicole Duckworth makes the fabulous desserts at Duckworth’s Bistrot–her amazing ‘Death-By-Chocolate’ and ‘Banana Cake’ are two favorites that come to mind immediately. She stopped by with a wonderfully tasty maple-walnut-dried cherry granola, possibly the best ever, along with a sweet thank you note. When she has a spare moment, I’ll ask her if she can share the recipe. Our family thanks you Nicole!Jude Nicole Duckworth ©Kim Smith 2013

2015 Rocky Neck Polar Plunge

2015 Rocky Neck PlungeSarah Grow for the Open Door Food Pantry

2015 Rocky Neck Plunge ©Kim Smith 2015With below average temperature and wicked wind, the 2015 Rocky Neck Polar Plunge Open Door Food Pantry Fundraiser was a plunge to remember. Dru, pictured above and below, reports that it wasn’t too bad running towards, or even diving in. The worst was running back to the beach against the bitter biting blast that had picked up during the event, and the fact that he couldn’t feel his feet!

Hats Off and Congratulations to All You Brave Polar-Plunging Souls!
