Superbowl Sandwich from Heaven
Football season is finally here. You know what that means to me, don’t you? Sunday football parties of course! Sunday is my Husband’s day to sit and scream at the TV. I am an old fashioned girl when it comes to football; I really have no interest in it. I do however; have a serious interest in Superbowl FOOD.
The World’s Greatest Rib Roast
I love making Rib Roast this time of year. They are available 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.

BEN SORKIN RISING STAR
Ever since Benjamin Sorkin ’17 was a kid, the marina has been his laboratory. For as long as he can remember, his family spent their summer vacations at a remote cabin on Lake George in upstate New York. After earning his boating license at age 10, Ben began collecting old engines from the 1960s and restoring them to vintage condition. His prize project was a 1961 Glasspar G3 ski boat that he rescued from a barn where it sat unused for thirty years.
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.
