Ok. You got me. But thanks for reading and I'm glad you found it interesting.

I agree with Sue, you did get political which makes the previous reading seem like a grand politicalRead More message. Your message of helping others is great but by throwing in the political dig it just seems like another political fluff piece. Is those supposed to be an anti-Romney piece or a pro-community support piece? Your message gets lost.

Dear KMT: To quote you, "your message of helping others is great." So I would have toRead More conclude that it did not truly get lost. The piece wasn't meant to be "political fluff" or a chance to dig at Mr. Romney. I was simply relating a meaningful event in my life and throwing in my opinion on its relationship to current events as I see them. Thanks for reading and take care.

Thanks Maureen. I do have a mold allergy, so I can see why the presence of it in the nuts wouldRead More throw a monkey wrench into my digestive system. Thanks for the info. I've been making walnut/spinach pesto in the meantime. It's really good rubbed on a whole chicken before roasting.
Elaine Hesser Giuliano February 14, 2012 at 04:33 pm
Almond/spinach works pretty well, too!

Thanks, Professional Foodie!

Thanks Kathy. Have always been so 'insecure' about tackling one of those beautiful fall pumpkins.Read More Great to have this step to step guide. Sounds Yummy. But is there a particular pumpkin you like...one that is, say, sweeter or has better texture? Happy Cooking, C

Thanks Chris. That's a great question. Most definitely get a sugar, white ghost, or some otherRead More variety that's meant for cooking. The Jack O'Lantern ones are not tasty and can be very watery. Whole foods usually has lots of different "eating" pumpkins.

I think its bull "no other vendors with the same wares".... It's America, noRead More monopolies... Pack the place with vendors, its a really dull market that needs some new blood... The town should expand the market to the parking lot on the other side for additional spaces...
James Kleimann September 23, 2011 at 08:43 pm
Hey Nol, Aside from packing the place, any other ideas to spice it up?
Harlan Consider September 25, 2011 at 05:04 pm
Lol's point is really the only thing that the current market needs. I, too, was bothered by theRead More vendor's comment about not wanting competition. The market should be expanded to the main parking lot area and maybe then we will get a real farmers market with more produce and yes, some competition.
Chris Gubb September 13, 2011 at 12:04 pm
Kathy, How fun to see you name appear in the Ridgewood Patch! Thanks for these great ideas and IRead More look forward to discovering more inspirations you'll submit in the future. Can always count on you for a funny visual....tiny Henry the Eighth. Take care, Chris

Thanks so much for reading, Chris! Hope I can give you some good ideas (and a smile or two).

Dear Ridgewood Mom, Thank you for your comments and support. I agree that it would be a positiveRead More change for the town to make the market bigger. Folks might even make a day of it and walk around town to spend some of their money. I love your idea of the shuttle bus and it led me to another thought. Wouldn't it be lovely for the people in assisted living facilities to be shuttled over for some fresh fruits and veg? The other addition I have been thinking of is music. There are so many up and coming talents in Ridgewood, I'm sure it would be no problem finding performers looking for a place to get noticed.
Denise August 30, 2011 at 12:09 pm
I can't agree more. I go to the farmers market nearly every week. I have been wishing for yearsRead More for the market to expand. I sometimes go down to Montclair farmers market instead because they have a much bigger market and I can get cheese and meat. Why can't the Ridgewood market bring in a meat vendor??
Bob January 10, 2012 at 08:18 pm
I love the farmers markets in NY and NJ is doing okay with keeping up. Its true Ridgewood could useRead More more vendors to round out the selection. That would be great if the Ridgewood Coffee Company had a booth there. It makes sense for them and for the market. By the way, I was just at the Ridgewood Coffee Co. and noticed they are starting to bring in some stuff locally. They now have these great brioche/bread things call, choreg, which I'm told is made locally in Hawthorne by a company called Zar & Co. They were SOOO yummy and different. Anyway, I agree with everyones comments here. Make it a free market!!!

Hey all, I see that somewhere along the way, my title has been changed, which makes the firstRead More sentence incorrect and confusing. The Michael Pollan quote which was the original title is: Eat food, not too much, mostly vegetables. Hope that clears up any confusion!

If I read all that small print on those boxes, I probably would not anything I'm gluten intolerantRead More you see. But, at 90 years of age I now enjoy everything and just control the amounts. Good luck with this page.
Kathy Skrzypczak July 28, 2011 at 12:13 pm
Hi Dominick, Thanks so much for taking the time to read my blog. I read that stuff, too, but IRead More think most people don't, which is what the food industry is counting on. BTW: Whole Foods has a very nice gluten-free whole grain bread in there freezer section.

And I thought I knew you well....Had no idea rhubarbing was amongst one of your many talents. EC

Clearly, I have never made Clyde H. Hesser's Rhubarb Pie for you. We will have to rectify thisRead More sorry state of affairs....
