To say it’s a long story would be an understatement. A lot has gone on in the recent past but good news is we’re back!! In some ways things are different and in some ways they are the same. The important thing as I said is that we’re open. So, if you’re coming to the north country to take your child to Crane Camp or a college visit, you’re looking for some amazing tea or a place to relax…..it’s all right here at North Fork. Specialtea Teas is our new tea shop that will be similar to our gift shop but the main focus will be on tea. Baker Road Bakery is on site as well with freshly baked goods for you to purchase to take home. Of course there will be baked goods on our breakfast table and snacks upon arrival as available. We hope you’ll come and see us!

Maple Scones Make a tasty breakfast…

Maple Scones

We are very lucky to be able to get our maple products from the Orebed Maple Sugar Shack. These scones use granulated maple sugar, which they have and I put maple crunchies on the top for added flavor. Our Maple scones have been a hit for our breakfasts every time we’ve made them. The recipe will be on our recipe page if you’d like to try making these delicious scones.

French Breakfast Muffins,Mmmmm…

French Breakfast Muffins

This morning’s breakfast featured French Breakfast Muffins served with St. Lawrence Valley Roasters Baker Road Blend coffee. These muffins have a little bit of nutmeg in the muffin and after baking them they are topped with melted butter and dipped in cinnamon and sugar. Our guests just loved them! Once again, I will be putting the recipe on our recipe page so if you’d like to make them, go for it!

The batter is a little bit different and you need to be sure not to over stir when putting them together. Have fun with these tasty breakfast muffins.

Baking for Baker Road Bakery

On Friday, the last day of school and graduation, I came home from work and began baking for the market. On Saturdays throughout the summer I plan to be at the Green Market in Ogdensburg,NY. Saturday it rained. The rain really ruins Tim’s coffee labels. Tim left early and went down to the market only to find pouring rain. He had to return home. We plan to be at the market on Saturday July 3rd so if you’re in the area, please stop by. I do want to share what’s going to available so far. Hopefully, I’ll have even more to choose from by the time Saturday rolls around!

Here's the dough ready to go on the cookie sheet.

Here’s the finished chocolate chip cookie dough just before it goes onto the cookie sheet and into the oven to bake.

This is the Whoopee Pie spelled the old Maine way, after being frosted. This is what the filling looks like before the top is put on the whoopee pie. Very light and fluffy!

Blueberry Muffins and Chocolate Chip Muffins will also be available at the market this week. Hope to see you there!

The HMS Bounty in Ogdensburg

This wonderful tall ship was my adventure yesterday. I had heard that it would be in the Ogdensburg port and just had to go and check it out. It’s the HMS Bounty built in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia for MGM Film Studios’ 1962 movie, Mutiny on the Bounty starring Marlon Brando. Now I ask you, who could resist climbing aboard the very same ship that Marlon Brando was on?  This very same ship was also used for Treasure Island, Yellow Beard, Sponge Bob Square Pants, and Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean-Dead Man’s Chest.

When I climbed aboard this tall ship, I was taken back to my childhood days and Mystic Seaport where I spent a great deal of time with my grandmother. We would go through and look at and read about everything! It was always fun and always interesting. Many of the children and children at heart, had that same gleam in their eye as they toured this vessel. I just kept thinking about our song and the tall ships and getting pictures to show my students. It was a lot of fun!

 

The height of the masts is what I always find amazing. The way it all fits together to form a most picturesque ship in full sail. It was a wonderful experience indeed!

Anyone Know Anything About Rushton Canoes?

You read the title correctly. We are looking for someone near us (Lisbon,NY 13658) that knows about Rushton Canoes.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen it and I don’t have a picture of it at this point in time either. We need someone that knows about them to let us know what kind of shape it’s in and about how much it’s worth. So, if you are a Rushton canoe person, please comment so that  we can start to get the ball rolling on this mystery. When I do get to see it. I am going to take pictures so that I have something I can show. In the meantime, I’m searching for information.
