Raising chickens on a small scale has been trending ever since commercial chicken farming protocols have been brought to our attention. More and more often I hear of families and individuals bringing food production back home. People are paying attention to what they put in their body, and they are jumping on the chicken train […]
Quiche, simply defined, is a savory egg pie or custard. Quiches are delicious and are so versatile – they can be pie-sized or individual bite–size morsels and can be made the day of an event or parbaked and frozen. Quiche is great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It can be eaten cold or warm, which […]
I’ve been here, on the island, forever. My grandparents. Their grandparents. Sometime back then, somebody came from Iceland. That woulda been the 1870s, I guess. Somethin’ like that. Somebody else, a Yankee, from Gloucester. That’s true for most of us here, some variation of it, and one way or another, most are related. Some say […]
As difficult as the game of golf may seem, the Tiger Woods, Arnold Palmers and your local club champion can generally set up the foundation of a golf victory. After all, they are the ones making the swings, taking the strokes and holing the putts — making it seem effortless every step of the way. […]
Let’s face it: working out in a gym can get pretty dull sometimes. The incandescent lighting, the sterile machinery, the four walls, the TVs that are on but don’t actually produce any sound. All of it combined can make working out feel like, well, a lot of work, rather than something enjoyable. Now imagine all […]
On April 6, 1946, new father Charles Richard stopped into George LeMere’s Egg Harbor barbershop looking for a haircut and a lead on a job. “Al Erickson’s hiring down at Horseshoe Bay Farms,” LeMere told him. Charles drove down Horseshoe Bay Road to the farm, found Mr. Erickson, and was promptly offered a job. “Can […]
Before I met my husband, I had heard little of straw bale home construction. To be frank, the thought of building my home entirely from straw caused me to feel strangely akin to the most ill-advised of the three little pigs. Surely, my husband Joel had heard that story and knew that the only logical […]
Inside the strange, twisted awesomeness that is Door County's Rhythm Chicken.
This spring, Arnold Alaniz will auction off “Autumn Twilight,” a piece of work depicting a peaceful Door County scene, featuring the distinctive pastel palette the seasoned artist is known for not only throughout the county, but the world. He describes his artwork as a “soft realism with a bit of romanticism.” “‘Autumn Twilight’ is a […]
There’s no place like Door County, and there’s no one like your sweetheart. So it’s not surprising that so many couples find their way up to the peninsula to tie the knot each year. Whether you’re looking for a simple ceremony or something lavish yet elegant, Door County can provide the perfect backdrop for your […]
The leisurely spread of buildings at Woodwalk Gallery – a large barn, a few silos, an old farmhouse – are not unlike most of the structures on the Door Peninsula: hardy, practical, and stolidly European. So Woodwalk co-owner Allin Walker readily admits the incongruity of adopting the Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi as the guiding principle […]
Relatively few people realize that all trees produce flowers. Trees require flowers in order to produce seeds, simple as that. Most people can see and recognize apple and cherry blossoms. However, birches, maples and elms, whose blossoms are wind-pollinated and don’t require the help of insects for transferring pollen, have very inconspicuous flowers that are […]
When you name your new restaurant Chop, you set the expectation bar pretty high when it comes to delivering traditional American steakhouse cuisine. “We want to be the first choice for a great steak in Door County – period,” said Jody Wuollett, who owns and runs the Sister Bay restaurant with his wife, Patsy, and […]
