Brothers Fish & Chips

Brothers Fish & Chips

Chef Elmer Oliveros enjoys fine dining, and he’ll save for an entire year to indulge in the tasting menu at Per Se. “I see God while I eat, and it’s amazing,” he says. But it’s always difficult to get his friends to go with him – it’s intimidating, and he can relate. “I remember going to a restaurant and they ...
A Taste of Home

A Taste of Home

Writing by Kaitlyn Hardy  Photography by Justin Negard It’s 9:00 in the morning, about three hours into baker Nora Gyarmathy’s day. Loaves of bread have been proofing for hours; linzer cookie dough sits in the fridge; gluten-free chocolate s’mores cookies lay upon a silver baking sheet, wafting their irresistible scent through 351 Bakery’s kitchen – it’s Gyarmathy’s manifestation of a ...
Meaningful Holiday Connections

Meaningful Holiday Connections

Writing & Photography by Amy Baker Artwork by Marilena Perilli The holidays are often filled with gatherings – some of which we love and some of which we loathe, numerous activities we’re required to attend, a rush to complete overwhelming shopping lists and an unnecessary pressure to make things “perfect.” But, this year, instead of giving into the chaos, we ...

Tricks of the Trade

Writing by Kaitlyn Hardy Photography by Justin Negard For Madi Tiso-D’aquanni, weekdays in high school started and ended in tears. She dreaded going to school, struggled in classes and felt unsure of what her future held. But a checkmark on a little pink slip of paper changed it all. That pink slip, an application to Yorktown BOCES cosmetology school, led ...

Caring for Senior Dogs

Writing by Dr. Sarah J. Cutler Artwork by Monique Ford If we are lucky, our pet dogs live until they are eight, 10 or 16 years old. We start using the descriptive term “senior” around eight years of age, although, sadly, some giant breeds may begin this phase of life as early as age five. This “senior” time period can ...
What to Know Before You Begin A New Exercise Routine

What to Know Before You Begin A New Exercise Routine

By Emma Richman Studies show that regular exercise is good for you. It helps prevent excessive weight gain, improves your mood, boosts your energy, can prevent certain health conditions and even helps you fall asleep faster. Plus, recent research from Kaiser Permanente in southern California has shown that regular exercise also helps decrease the severity of COVID-19.  But exercise also ...

How To Wire Your Home

How To Wire Your Home

By Justin Negard Electricity is something we take for granted. It’s always there. One flick of the switch and…let there be light. And yet, for safety and convenience, it’s something everyone should give more consideration to. Is the wiring in our home safe? Is it efficient? Are we optimizing the technology in our home? We spoke to three different experts ...
Summer Pet Safety Tips

Summer Pet Safety Tips

Summer heat can be hard to bear, especially for our furry friends. While us humans can just go inside, sit in front of the AC and down a cold drink, our pets rely on us for their comfort and safety. In these dog days of summer, it’s especially important to pay close attention to your pet’s behavior and be wary ...

Part of their Charm: The Blazer

Alice O’Leary Kerrigan has a theory: If she was in business school and received an assignment to develop a restaurant concept, The Blazer’s business model would fail. “If my plan was to use plastic tablecloths and paper placemats, have a two-page menu that should technically be one but the font is just really big, not offer dessert, be located in ...

LMNOP

Anne Mayhew wanted to learn how to bake “really good bread,” and with three kids under the age of four, it was an ambitious endeavor. She mastered sourdough while her kids slept, and soon her friends began asking to buy her loaves. From there, it snowballed, and she named her home bakery LMNOP Bakery, as in the letters of the ...

Empowered Optimism

Empowered Optimism

Empowered Optimism – The only kind that really works We hear a lot about the importance of keeping a positive attitude, a.k.a. being optimistic. Like gratitude, it’s an overused term that we’re told we must do if we’re going to “live our best life” and “shed the negative beliefs holding us back.” The question is, how? With numerous not-so-positive things ...
Turn Your Home into Your Haven

Turn Your Home into Your Haven

For some of us, it’s a natural inclination– there’s a desire to make our living spaces a place of refuge, a haven. Kids, for instance, often create cozy spaces – they build pillow forts, fill their beds with stuffed animals or create blanket houses. Yet as we get older, we sometimes forget how good it feels to curl up in ...

Beginning in January, they’ll offer 12 weekly community meditation classes on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 at the Bedford Hills ...

If so, you probably avoid taking them to concerts, events or other loud/crowded places, but you wish you could. Everyone should experience the power of live music, right? Thankfully, Caramoor sees you, and they’re ...
