I’m not only a chocolate fanatic but crazy for cookies and brownies.  A couple months ago at the Natural Products Expo in Boston, it was all I could do to control myself from eating all of the samples in Vermont Cookie Love booth next to us. And when on the road, I always am on […]

Today I was lucky enough to sneak out of the office and enjoy lunch on Lake Champlain.  Yes – lunch on a boat on the lake at the end of October!    Despite being a cloudy day, the lake was calm and it was smooth sailing (or shall we say motoring) on the Northern Lights. The […]
