Ivey’s In My Kitchen - Holiday 2016

Written by

I feel thankful every time I sit down to write this column. Who knew, back in 2002, that I would have become part of this funny, kooky, quirky, loving, boating family? So many of you love food the way that I do and everyone was so receptive to me, I felt instantly befriended. Nice people, and I get to talk about food all day long. How could I not feel lucky?

I can honestly say that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. There are no religious obligations, no presents to buy and at my house, you get to spend the day in your pajamas. Every year growing up, I looked forward to sitting on the floor with my sister, Mara, rolling a years-worth of change from a jar, while my father screamed at the football game on television.

Hull Delaminating …It’ll Ruin Your Day

Two boats manufactured by the same company were brought to my shop for repair within weeks of each other because sections of the hull were delaminating. Initially I wondered what could have caused the delimitation which is not only cosmetic; it’s structural as well. As you can see in the photos there is a large area of the bottom laminate that has peeled away. There were no signs of impact anywhere in the fiberglass.

Secret Savings On Your Insurance

Hi Readers! Boats are coming out of the water for the season and with the extra time you may have, now is a good opportunity for you to review your insurance policies for coverage and cost. I have often stated in the past that coverage should be you number one consideration in the purchase of any insurance, but with so much competition, cost should be a concern as well

Iveys In My Kitchen

This has been a revolution turned revelation and ended with a recipe revision. Whip less, cream more, kicking cheesecake back to classic old school. And it’s all thanks to Shunpike Dairy’s Tuition Cheese. Shunpike Dairy in Millbrook NY is a Baldwin family owned and operated farm since the 1930’s. Currently, Liz Baldwin and her clan are the gatekeepers to the most delicious raw milk in the world. Their blend comes from Brown Swiss, Guernsey, Ayshire, Linebacker, Jersey and even a few of the original family of Holstein cows. Happy cows. No antibiotics or hormones are ever given to the cows. I have been feeding my kids “Liz Milk” as they call it, since they were very, very small. And, they are not small anymore. They are big and healthy happy children. It must be the milk?

Anchor Your Portfolio with Index Funds

The anchors you carry on your boat are not complicated or high tech devices, but you wouldn’t leave the dock without them; they can hold your boat in place when you’re not driving, keep your bow headed in the right direction, and help prevent your boat from being swept away in a storm. This article explains how index mutual funds might be able to provide similar benefits for your investment portfolio.
