The Day After Thanksgiving Pie
Nov. 15, 2016
What are you going to do with all this leftover turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, etc.? As much as I love eating cold turkey sandwiches, here's a clever way to utilize a lot of your leftovers so you wont let them go to waste.
Your New Favorite Cranberry Sauce
Nov. 10, 2016
Cranberries are deliciously sour and slightly sweet and bitter, they're quirky and a little unbalanced. Raw cranberries are usually an acquired taste, some people love them, some folks would rather eat that suspicious jelly that holds the shape of the can. For my favorite recipe, I use both. Enjoy! - Chef Kevin
Perfect Mashed Potatoes

Thanksgiving is approaching and that can only mean one thing - someone is going to be sending long hours in the kitchen. Of course Thanksgiving doesn't have to be stressful; you can have it right here and not have to lift a finger! But for those who aren't able to get away for the holiday, we think this recipe will be a stress free addition to your Thanksgiving table. Enjoy!

Days and evenings are cooler and we are about to enter what many residents of Lake Placid feel is the best season of the year; a time when the High Peaks are crowned in golds, reds and deep purples contrasted with our north eastern evergreens. This three week window might be fleeting, but there are so many ways you can enjoy the colors!
