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"

My love for the 'Cottages of the Berkshires' began many years ago, when I visited Elm Court, in Stockbridge, for the first time.  Actually, I can't quite call it visiting, since it was an abandoned estate at the time, and my friends and I, in our teenage days, would sneak onto the property from the back part of the property, and hang Continue reading the story "The magnificence of the Elm Court Estate"

Have you ever heard of Chaga?  Up until a few months ago, neither had I.  But, I now believe that Chaga is one of the most wonderful medicinals to be found ... and, it's natural ... and it can be procured locally, right here in the Berkshires!  It can actually be found in nature all throughout the world, but the brand that I have been Continue reading the story "Locally harvested Chaga is healing me!"

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."

In my wide circle of friends and family, I am well known for my love of the Berkshire Blanket company.  I have purchased several of their blankets and sheet sets over the years, for myself, and as gifts for others.  Last year, when they presented me with an opportunity to be one of their 'Comfort Connoisseurs'(basically, a product reviewer for Berkshire Blanket), I was Continue reading the story "Berkshiregirl reviews the most luxurious Berkshire Blanket ever!"
