The Many Benefits of Water!

Kelly McCombs - Friday, June 08, 2018


As we all know, water should be an important part of our everyday life. It makes up 60% of our bodies and is vital to both our physical and mental health. If you’re feeling dizzy, thirsty, and have a headache, it could be that you are dealing with a mild case of dehydration. Unfortunately, those are only a few of the minor symptoms. Other, more serious symptoms can include:


·      Confusion

·      Weakness

·      Irritability

·      Constipation

·      Decreased urine output

·      Fainting

·      Fever



There are many benefits to drinking water, besides avoiding all of the scary dehydration symptoms listed above. Did you know that water can assist with weight loss? A glass of water 30 minutes before each meal can trick your body into being “full”, thus controlling your appetite and the calories you consume. Also, cutting out a sugary soft drink habit and replacing it with water helps reduces the risk of obesity, stroke, and other heart problems.


Water can also help you to feel refreshed, revitalized, and happy. Water wakes you up, will keep you going, and when you’re feeling energized and on the move, chances are you’re in a good mood. A lack of fluids can lead to muscle fatigue, and result in exhaustion. Drinking more, especially before and after exercise, replenishes the fluids lost from sweating and will keep you moving the remainder of the day.


Are you having some trouble with your skin? Without water, our skin becomes dry, dull, and wrinkled…but drinking the right amount each day allows the body to lock in the moisture it needs to create stronger, more radiant skin. Also, a sufficient amount of water maintains the many functions within your body, such as: digestion, absorption, circulation, body temperature, bowel movement, and the transportation of nutrients.


One thing to consider when drinking water is what type of container it is in. Do you drink water only from plastic bottles? If so, you might be interested to know that many plastic bottles can leach harmful chemicals straight in to the water that you're drinking. You can avoid this by drinking out of glass bottles, such as our recognizable blue bottles! 


As you can see, there are so many great benefits of getting the appropriate amount of water for your body! It can sometimes be hard to focus on drinking enough, so to make it easier, I will always have a glass of water as soon as I wake up, before my coffee. Then, I bring a large bottle of water with me to work every day and keep it on my desk in eyesight. This helps me to remember to drink up! Hopefully, these tips and important information will help you to keep your body hydrated!


What To Serve on St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick’s Day is tomorrow and they say you don’t need to be Irish to celebrate. However, I think everyone is at least a little Irish on the holiday! St. Patrick’s Day is a day to cook delicious authentic cuisine and beverages, and have fun with family, friends and co-workers. We have a feeling you’ll feel the luck of the Irish with these recipes below. Remember to enjoy and drink responsibly! 



Irish Soda Bread

A meal in Ireland is not complete without traditional Irish Soda Bread. This recipe is easy and only takes about an hour to make. The finished product is soft loaf filled with raisins. Slather a layer of butter on a slice and you’ll be the happiest one in the room!



Irish Coffee

While this may seem like something you can only have in the morning time, this strong coffee cocktail can be had any time of the day. My favorite time to make this is as an after dinner drink. Irish coffee can be deceiving…it packs a punch!



Shephard's Pie

This delicious casserole is seen on many Irish menus, though some say it originally came from England. Regardless, this is a super easy and popular meal to make for St. Patrick’s Day!



The Irish Cocktail

A simple name for a drink that has been around since 1888. You can’t have a St. Patrick’s Day cocktail recipe without a little whiskey!



Irish Beef Stew

One of the best meals I had while in Ireland, was a hearty beef stew made with Guinness at a small pub in the coastal town of Doolin. Enjoying this meal, while listening to spirited Irishmen play some local music, made for some long lasting memories. This recipe is the closest one I’ve found to replicate that stew!

Gift Ideas Under $25

Kelly McCombs - Friday, December 08, 2017



Are you participating in a Secret Santa at work or in your group of friends, and have no idea what to get? Don't fret...we have put together a list of some of the best gifts under $25! 


First up is a gift that would be at the top of my list! For those of us who always have cold feet but hate wearing slippers, these Slipper Socks are the perfect compromise! They are lined with faux shearling to keep your toes warm, and have silicone grips on the soles to prevent you from slipping! Pretty perfect and only $20!


This next item is one that I have purchased for myself. Those of us with iPhones know that sometimes the charging cord that comes with the phone is not the most durable. I have gone through quite a few of them over the years, until I found this. With a nylon braided cord, this charger from Amazon has been able to stand up to rigorous daily use without fraying!  It is totally worth the $10!


A dinosaur shaped desk organizer/memo holder from Amazon is the perfect cutesy gift for a coworker who doesn't always have the most organized desk or who might be forgetful! And it's a steal at only $11!


Do you have a beer connoisseur in the family? Well this little Beer Journal by Moleskine might just be the perfect gift for them! It has sections for home brewing notes, a tasting log, and even beer pouring tips...and it's only $22!



The next gift idea is surprisingly inexpensive. For the cook in the family, this 3-quart Crock Pot might be the perfect gift, and it's less than $20! I know I can't live without my Crock Pot, especially in the colder months, so this is something I can totally get behind.


For the world traveler in your group of friends, this Scratch Off Map is such a fun idea! They simply scratch off the gold foil from the places that they have visited, and they can see their own unique journey! It would be a fun goal to scratch off as much as possible! 

We hope that our little list has given you some ideas for your holiday shopping! May you have a wonderfully happy Holiday season with your friends and family!

Sunday Funday Football Snacks

Kelly McCombs - Friday, October 13, 2017

One of my very favorite things about the start of Fall and football season is all of the delicious food that I get to have every weekend. My family is a big football loving family so every Sunday is a big get-together, with a ton of different snacks and finger food, while we watch the games. I have put together a list of some of our favorites for you to enjoy this upcoming Sunday!


One of my family's favorites on Football Sunday is the Mexican Layer Dip. Paired with crunchy tortilla chips for dipping, this is always a huge crowd pleaser. In fact, if we don’t make this dip one weekend, we get bombarded with everyone asking where it is! It is very easy to make and doesn’t take much time at all.


We also like to make our own French Onion Dip, instead of buying a container from the store. The recipe that we use is far healthier than any store-bought version, without all of the preservatives. Another very easy recipe, this is a great one to just sit on the table and let guests help themselves as they want.


Last year, we made these crunchy Pasta Chips! They are garlicky and cheesy and just plain delicious! This one is easy to throw together ahead of time and takes no time at all to prepare!


Another new addition to our snack spread is this Buffalo Chicken Dip. This is a simple recipe, with only 4 ingredients, this is also great to make ahead and keep in the fridge for the big day. We usually eat this with either tortilla chips or thin slices of a French baguette, toasted. You can make this as spicy as you want!


Now that I have clogged everyone’s arteries with all of the unhealthy dips and chips, how about a slightly healthier version of the chicken wing? We usually make these Lemon Drop Chicken Wings, which are a little better for you since they are baked, not fried. Another plus is that they are very inexpensive to make, so they are perfect for when you have a bunch of people over. I will usually put sides of blue cheese and ranch dressing so that everyone can choose if they want a dipping sauce.


On the sweet side of things is this Caramel Cinnamon Cheesecake Dip. This is our go-to when we want a dessert on Football Sunday. It sounds super rich and decadent, and it is, but it is also delicious and easy to make. We serve with graham crackers and slices of fresh apple to dip. This is probably my favorite out of all of the recipes mentioned. It is the perfect Fall dip!


How about a recipe that isn’t a dip? We love these Pretzel Pigs in a Blanket as a delicious finger food. I’m sure everyone has had pigs in a blanket at one time in their life, but this recipe takes the traditional one and puts a slight twist on it. Instead of using puff pastry or crescent roll dough, this one calls for pizza dough that is pretzeled. The flavor that the pretzel brings makes these much more than just a childhood snack. We like to serve with honey mustard as a dipping sauce!


We hope you enjoy these recipes during your next get-together! Remember to make memories while rooting on your favorite team!




Fall is Coming!

Kelly McCombs - Saturday, September 16, 2017


Fall is just around the corner and what better way to enjoy this gorgeous season than getting a jump start on all things Autumn!



First on the list should always be apple picking, especially in September. This is the perfect month to pick because the orchards all have a large variety of apples ready to go! There are numerous apple orchards in the Saratoga area, many of them offering pick-your-own, which means you get to pick which apples you want right from the trees! My favorite orchard is Bowman Orchards. They boast 46 different varieties of apples on almost 100 acres! On top of the apple picking, they have berry picking hay rides, apple cider donuts, and plenty of fun activities for everyone in the family. They even have a plethora of different farm animals for you to pet. They say their trees are lower to the ground so picking ladders are generally not needed, making this an exceptionally family friendly orchard. Bowman Orchards is quintessential “Fall” to me and a must see!



It wouldn’t feel like Fall without a trip to your local Farmer’s Market. With the change in the season comes a change in the many different kinds of produce that are available. Now is the perfect time to visit the Saratoga Farmer’s Market before it moves inside for the cooler months, starting in October. Not only do they have a huge selection of different fruits, vegetables, and flowers, but they also offer many vendors that sell local meats, cheeses, jams, and even crafts and other various items. The Saratoga Farmer’s Market runs every Wednesday from 3-6pm and every Saturday from 9am-1pm at the High Rock Park Pavilion in downtown Saratoga Springs.



One thing I always do each Fall season is go “leaf peeping”. This is a funny way of saying I go for a drive around to view the gorgeous Fall foliage! Some of the best places to see the magnificent change in colors on the trees is up in the Adirondacks and also in Vermont, specifically Brattleboro and Grafton. These are two towns I have visited in Vermont strictly for the purpose of seeing the foliage, but they offer so much more, as well! From hiking, to beautiful historic houses and apple cider donuts, I have made some of my favorite memories here!



Along with apple picking, one of my other favorite Fall things to do is go pumpkin picking! We always go to Liberty Ridge Farm in Schaghticoke. It is very easy to spend the whole day here, exploring the Farm and all it has to offer. They are known for having the Capital Area’s original and largest corn maze. It is huge! Liberty Ridge Farm also has a General Store where you can purchase things like homemade pies, apple cider donuts, and many other souvenirs. They have pig races, a giant pumpkin cannon, and a live band…there is so much to do! In addition to all of this fun family-friendly stuff, every Friday and Saturday night beginning in October, Liberty Ridge turns into Nightmares at Liberty Ridge. If you are feeling brave and like terrifying things, than this is a must-see. Nightmares boasts 7 different haunted attractions that are all sure to have you quaking in your boots. Liberty Ridge Farm is the perfect Fall destination for the young and old alike!



We hope you take some time this Autumn to get out and explore the many fun and exciting things to do in our area. We are lucky enough to have many wonderful events, so take advantage of the cooler weather and get out there!


DIY Garden Ideas

Kelly McCombs - Saturday, August 05, 2017

With summer in full swing and the gorgeous warm weather fully upon us, now is the perfect time to get outside and create some fun DIY garden projects out of some things you might have laying around the house! A few of these can even be made with some help from your kiddos!



First up is a great way to upcycle an empty wine bottle that you were just going to throw away. This DIY Bird Feeder can even be made with an empty Saratoga Water bottle! That would be a fun way to add a gorgeous pop of blue to your garden! This project is a little more on the complicated side, since you’ll be needing to measure and cut some different sized wood pieces, but we still think it’s a fun way to add some pizzazz to your outside space, all while attracting a bunch of different bird varieties!

Another way to add some extra oomph to your outdoor space is to switch from your typical incandescent lighting to solar lights. Not only is this much more energy efficient, but there are some fun DIY lighting ideas that you can incorporate, many of them incredibly easy. This article, written by Jackie Edwards, lists a bunch of different ideas including DIY mason jar solar lights, and even a tin can solar light which you can make with a regular old can from inside your house. Saving money, helping the environment, and adding some fun elements to your backyard? Sounds pretty perfect to us!



Now on to the easiest DIY project you will probably ever see. This Pallet Planter is a fun way to jazz up your front porch or anywhere you want to add a more finished look. It’s easy because there is really only one step; spray paint! You can find pallets many places, including your local garden store. They will often have a bunch sitting in the back that they will give away for free! Doesn’t get much better than that!



Have an unsightly, old tree stump in your yard? Sometimes, these can be expensive and a hassle to remove. Why not make it a beautiful planter instead? All you’ll need to do is take a chisel and a hammer to gently carve out the center of the stump, add topsoil and then whatever flowers you’d like. Easy as that!

One of my favorite things to do as a child when I was visiting at my Grandma's house, was to paint rocks for the garden. This is a great crafty way to get the kids involved in decorating the outside space. Super simple, all you need is a rock of your choosing and a few colors of Patio Paint from your local craft store. This paint is meant to be used outside and will make the artwork stand up to the elements. You can have the kids paint the rocks to use just as decoration, or you can have them paint them to be used to mark specific plants, such as different types of herbs.
