Fall Fun

Fall is my favorite season, and it would not be complete without a trip to the cider mill. The best part is the homemade donuts and cider. We went to Uncle John's Cider Mill last weekend. It was a surprisingly nice day - sunny and warm.. There are so many fun things to do for all age. Definitely a great place to enjoy fall experience!

Buttermilk, cinnamon sugar, pumpkin, and cider donuts...
And the best apple cider they have!

Tasting Room

A Taste of Tuscany

I had been looking forward to an evening at Southern Exposure Herb Farm since we made a reservation a couple of months ago. Finally, it was here! Four of us -- Lynne, Jill, Al, and I -- attended a specialty dining, A Taste of Tuscany, one of their many Fall unique dining experience. The weather was so perfect that we spent plenty of time walking around the property with glasses of wine, and enjoying the beautiful garden surrounded by lush grapevine arbors, colorful flowers and foliage, and relaxing water features.

We fell in love with the charming setting of our dining room, named Hog House.

All their staffs are very friendly and passionate about what they do. We had a nice time talking with some of them, and learning about the place. Our dinner was excellent! Everything was delicious, and we agreed we then had the best herb tomato bisque ever. We had to have the recipe - which they loved to share.
