LAST RUN ON THE RIVER Featured

Written by

Last February 27th I decided to “hang up my anchor”. I had been working for the Sandy Hook and Hudson River Pilots for over 42 years. That day I piloted the tanker Afrodite down through the ice out of the Port of Albany and brought her safely to Yonkers - It was my last run! People often ask me what I’ll miss most about working on the “River”. My immediate response is always the same, namely the people I meet and work with! Spinning a ship around in the Port of Albany and helping it wend it’s way along is not an easy task and depends on the help of many others to make it happen safely. It all starts with the goodbye hug from my wife as I leave the house. Then I meet the security guard at the port who greets me and checks me through to the ship. Next I meet the agent (whose job it is to please everyone) who then gives me the OK that everything is ready. As I walk along the berth I greet the line handlers who are happy to know that their job is at hand as they shift back and forth with the cold.  MORE

JUST FOR YOU FOR CHRISTMAS, IVEY'S RIB ROAST Featured

Written by

I love making Rib Roast this time of year.
They are everywhere and they are on sale!!!
To me, cooking up that big honking hunk
of meat is a true sign of the holidays. I
have a recipe that is so easy, so delicious;
you are going to fall in love with it too.
Since I started cooking it this way; rib
roast has become a regular in our family’s
food repertoire. My darling Hub always
wants an end cut.  More

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 recep
tive to me, I felt instantly befriended. Nice people, 
and I get to talk about food all day long. How could 
I not feel lucky?  "   Ivey Levy....
