Who else loves a good mystery? I have a friend who’s a huge fan of Agatha Christie! Growing up, she’d always had this secret desire to play a role playing mystery game with a group of friends. The problem was that at the time, all the popular role-playing (RPG) games were things like Dungeons and Dragons, Magic the Gathering or computer games. Recently, she met a friend who loves unique games the way she does and finally got to play a mystery game! [Read more…]

First things first – do NOT eat the trees! There is a wire in them. Everything else is edible. These are yummy and adorable Halloween centerpieces! The original post says they are not edible, however it’s because of the black wire they used. Instead of black wire, I twisted my trees together and then used black electrical tape to tie it together. [Read more…]

It’s So Worth The Wait!!
Here’s what to do:
Now that I’m teaching my 13 year old step daughter how to cook, I find myself subconsciously doing little things. It wasn’t until she asked “Why are you doing that?” for the hundredth time that I realized many people might not know them. I’ve picked up a lot of tricks (hacks) from working at various restaurants, life, and of course Mom. Emily has picked up a lot from studying, reading, trial and error, raising a family… Below are some of Sisters Know Best Food Hacks. We’ll keep adding to the list as we remember more and hope they will add to your life! [Read more…]
Yay! Color is here! It’s been a loooooong winter. It’s even longer when you garden in Maine, but it’s so rewarding to take a tiny seed and have it grow into a gorgeous flower or a delicious vegetable. [Read more…]
It’s the dead of winter here in Maine. Yup, everything “garden-y” is dead. Kind of depressing unless you buy fun green veggies and make amazing salads that encourage thoughts of warmer times to come. Enter in Kale Salad!
Years ago a friend had given me some kale from her garden. Oh, goody I thought. Then I was embarrassed not to know how to eat it — cook it? chop it? steam it? add to soups? Absolutely all of those things can be done with kale! I haven’t forgotten the kale chips that are all the rage now, but it’s not something I have done — yet.
This version of kale salad is best enjoyed the following day. The kale will soften some and the flavors will meld into a deliciousness that is worth the wait. Trust me! [Read more…]

Our part guests loved the idea, the cheese ball igloo was yummy, and the penguins… well, no one ate them because they were just too cute!
