With the drudgery of the winter behind us(at least, it better be behind us!), I decided to start venturing out and about more to check out some Berkshire places that I have yet to visit, or revisit places that I hadn't been in awhile.  The Berkshires are becoming a 'foodie's mecca', so I thought that checking out some local eateries was in order. A bit earlier Continue reading the story "Recent Eats in the Berkshires – Castle Street Cafe"

I'm sure that longtime residents of the Berkshires have their favorite 'go-to' pizza places, and I am definitely one of those people.  There are several that I think make pretty tasty pies, but there are only two in the county that I love enough to suggest to people looking for a delicious pizza.  One of my favorites is Baba Louie's , which has locations in Great Barrington, Continue reading the story "A lifetime love for East Side Pizza."

ayelada Like many other things, the Berkshires were slow to welcome the frozen yogurt phenomenon to our area.  Since it has arrived however, it has become a standard business in almost every big town in the county.  They are all fine and well, I mean, who doesn't like yummy froyo with tons of tasty toppings piled on?  But, out of all Continue reading the story "Froyo heaven at Ayelada….."
