EMMY ROSSUM    (This is from her album  Sentimental Journey;  She also is the star of Showtime’s Shameless)

Hemingway would have liked Emmy.

“The winds of march that made my heart a dancer
A telephone that rings but who’s to answer
Oh, how the ghost of you clings

These foolish things remind me of you.”



Emmy Rossum

Little Italy has been fading away for years. Yet you can still take a food tour there and visit family businesses that exist after more than one hundred years.

On Columbus Day,  the Italian-American community is celebrated —-Paul Goldfinger, Editor @Blogfinger.

On  October, 19 and 20, the 36th annual Chatsworth Cranberry Festival will be held in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey.  Check the web site and mark your calendar.  It’s fun!   It runs on Saturday and Sunday, but we suggest Sunday morning before the crowds show up.  It opens at 9 am.

There are a wide variety of edibles made with cranberries, but also arts and crafts, and plenty of local color. There is a huge section with stuff for dogs. And there is a food truck section with tables, bathrooms, and live country music accompanying the munching.

Spend an hour or two, buy some cranberries  (to use with Eileen’s recipe) and then hit the road.

Set your gps to Chatsworth, and as you come into town, get near to the congested center and park in one of the lots, such as the Pinewood Antlers Club on the left. Then it’s a short walk to the Festival, and the exit is easy when you leave.

Recipe for homemade cranberry sauce by by Eileen Goldfinger, Food Editor @Blogfinger.   She uses berries purchased at the festival and frozen until needed, as for Thanksgiving.  Wegmans also carries fresh cranberries around Thanksgiving time.  Eileen usually shares a 7 pound box with her sister Hope who comes every year for our annual visit to Appalachia in the Garden State.

1 cup of water

1 cup sugar

2 cups fresh cranberries

1 orange, peeled and diced

1 tablespoon orange zest

1/8 cup Grand Marnier (optional)



Mix sugar and water in a medium sauce pan.

Bring to a boil and stir to dissolve sugar.

Add cranberries and bring to a boil; then reduce the heat and gently boil for ten minutes, stirring occasionally.

Remove from heat.

Cool to room temperature.

Add diced orange and zest and Grand Marnier.


Makes approx. 2 cups of cranberry sauce. In general, if used as a condiment, it will serve about 4 people.
