Bee Nice: Gather Chocolate from Harbor Sweets

Step into this delectable world of honey and chocolate.  Harbor Sweets’ Gather Chocolate supports the Pollinator Partnership.

I am not someone who has a sweet tooth, but I do enjoy a well-made chocolate or dessert.  What I mean by “not having a sweet tooth” is that I rarely crave sweets.  It doesn’t mean I don’t like them.  I just crave bread and salty bites more.  That means if I’m sharing a sweet treat on the blog it must be pretty delicious for me to take notice. If you’ve read A Guide to Chocolate in Boston you know I’m a fan of Harbor Sweets up in Salem.  It is a great road trip for visitors and the history in that building is something you can’t find many places in North America. Harbor Sweets sent me a box of their newest chocolates for review, and I was very impressed.  I think it is my favourite chocolate of theirs I have tasted so far.

Famous for their nautical, crunchy, Sweet Sloops, which can be found at gift and specialty shops in the area, I have always thought of Harbor Sweets as a nice local gift of pretty good chocolate.  They have some tough local competition though when it comes to high end boxes of chocolate.  Their latest box, however, is not only raising the bar they’ve also created a box that supports a cause that is very important to all of us (whether you know it or not).


Gather Chocolate is a flight of (the bumblebee)…no it’s a flight of chocolates that has more complex notes than some of Harbor Sweet’s other chocolates.  Most importantly, there is athe subtle note of local wildflower honey.   2.5% of the sale of Gather Chocolates supports the Pollinator Partnership.  The Pollinator Partnership is an advocate for best beekeeping practices for honeybee protection.

This delicious flight of chocolates is presented in a hexagonal box (reminiscent of a hive) and is a beautiful golden, honey-yellow on the outside.  Within the box, you (or the person who recieves these as a gift) will find a rich, smooth caramelized honey bonbon, an earthy pomegranate molasses bonbon, a tart sour cherry truffle, a crunchy and nutty cashew caramel bonbon. a tropical coconut cluster truffle, and a caramelized sesame crunch bonbon.  Each bonbon is made with dark chocolate that goes so well with the touch of honey.  A six piece box has one of each ($12.50).  A 12 piece box has two of each ($18.50).

I recommend buying a box to keep in the house and nibble your way through this month.  As you bite into each one, see if you can taste all the hidden notes and pat yourself on the back for supporting the bees.

For the full experience, stop by Harbor Sweets and pick up several boxes for friends and family as a nice surprise.  Harvor Sweets in located in its original historic red brick building at 85 Leavitt St. in Salem, MA.  Chocolate can also be bought online and shipped worldwide.

This weekend you might also want to check out some of these fun and fabulous mazes.

A sweet and simple local hay maze that isn’t scary or too difficult and even the littlest tyke enjoy it is the maze at Wilson Farm. (Thursdays 12:30 -5:00 p.m., Fridays 3-5, Saturday/Sunday 11 a.m.- 5 p.m.

At the other end of the spectrum is the giant Big Papi tribute Maze at Davis Mega Maze.  This is a corn maze rather than a hay maze.  It is open day and night.  (children 5-12/$16.95, Adults & children 13+ $19.95)

One of our family favourites and great for those who get a bit claustrophobic, is the hay maze at Parlee Farms that you go on top of instead of im between walls of hay.

In addition to hay mazes, apple picking, and switching out our summer wardrobe for our winter one, there is one thing that New Englanders enjoy year-round and that is ice cream.  A few new places to check out this fall are:  Hi B3ar Ice Cream Roll, Honeycomb Creamery, Forge Ice Cream BarFomu in the South End, and The Parlor Ice Cream Co.







A Delicious 88 Acres: Nut-Free Snacking

“He eats like a bird.” is often said with a scrunched-up nose and a bit of a snarl.  With 88 Acres though, eating like a bird is a good thing especially if you can find a bag of their incredibly addictive, smart, and delicious chocolate and sea salt seednola.

88 Acres is an interesting company.  I first came across them picking up some bars for my daughter at the South End Buttery. She fell in love with the chocolate sea salt bars and I fell in love with the apple ginger bars.  I then learned that 88 Acres Bars are locally made and that was a bonus for me.  So far they had a lot going for them:

  • locally made
  • delicious and a good texture (no one likes biting into those ‘cardboard’ bars that taste like sawdust)
  • our favourite kind of flavours: chocolate sea salt, apple ginger, triple berry

Then, I found out that one of the company’s goals was to create nut free products because the co-founder, Nicole Ledoux’s true love, Rob, is allergic to nuts. Although we are not a nut-free family, we have many friends who are.  It is nice to have friends over for a play date and have a nut free, totally safe option to offer them for snack time.

Recently, I was sent a few bars as samples and this mystery bag of something called seednola.  I have to admit I was a little hesitant to try something out of a bag from a company that usually makes things in bars. I now see how silly that was.  The seednola is a fabulous sweet treat that my daughter loves for snack after school with some yoghurt or just plain in a bowl.  The brilliant thing about the 88 Acres Seednola is that it is made from the scraps of the bars; genius!!


Weekend Guide: Indigenous People’s Day

Call it what you like, this weekend is a long weekend.  The leaves are actually glowing with reds, yellows and oranges and the orchards are our destinations du jour. Oktoberfests are brewing left right and center and we’ve got so many new cider houses and breweries in the area that there is plenty to celebrate.

10/7 12-4p.m. (Cambridge) F#@k Slider Friday’s at Bukowski’s Tavern.  Start the weekend off right with a quick lunch date with your spouse that’s what all the hip parents are doing these days.  No babysitter needed if the kids are in school and you’re still functional because you haven’t had to go through the witching hour yet.  Chef Brian Poe’s teaching you the abc’s of burgers with versions made with antelope, bison and camel.  ($10/$15 with beer pairings)

10/7 8 p.m. (Boston) The Hunger with Anthony Bourdain.  There are a few tickets still left to hear Anthony Bourdain at Symphony Hall on Friday.  I say hear because they are blocked view seats, but really I could happily spend an evening just listening to Bourdain’s stories.  ($50-$250 VIP)

10/8 -10/9 (Hull) Fall Beach days are fun and if the weather is iffy you can still enjoy a stroll, and the sound of the waves. Then pop into The Paragon Carousel for a ride back in time.  The Carousel has been in operation for more than 80 years. Built in 1928 by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company, it boasts four rows of 66 intricately carved horses and two rare Roman chariots. The carousel is decorated with 35 original paintings, 36 cherubs and 18 goddesses who look down while a Wurlitzer Band Organ fills the air with music. The Paragon carousel is one of less than 100 “Grand” carousels remaining in the U.S. and is the only attraction left of the Paragon Park amusement park on Nantasket Beach that closed in 1985. The antique amusement is a lasting reminder of the “Golden Age” of Hull, MA, when the town was teeming with thousands of visitors each day in the summer for decades. The Carousel now attracts upwards of 100,000 visitors each summer.

10/7 – 10/9 (Somerville/Cambridge) If you haven’t been to HONK! Fest yet, it is worth checking out. Loud instruments, loud people and loud ideas roam the streets with concerts, parades and spectacles of all sorts.

Go for a hike or a walk around the neighborhood.

Craft. Pick one of the many Pinterest pins you saved to your boards.

Ballerinas and Tacos

Today is World Ballet Day but it is also National Taco Day so clearly if you live in the US the only thing to do today is to take a ballet class or buy tickets for a ballet, and then go out for tacos.

From now until October 30th Margaritas Mexican Restaurant’s Taco Gigante, a whopping 12-inch, 2lb colossal taco filled to the brim and $2 from every Taco Gigante sold will be donated to national charity, Team IMPACT.  Team IMPACT works to provide a life-changing experience for children with chronic & terminal illness. The children are “Drafted” to join their favorite college sports team – the child joins the team & the student athletes join the child’s support team.

Today some Margaritas locations are hosting the Battle of the Badges, where the men and woman of local police and fire compete to complete the Taco Gigante. The first team to conquer the Gigante gets $250 donated to the charity of their choice plus a free taco party for their department. The losing team will also get a donation of $100 to the charity of their choice.


World Ballet Day

Boston Ballet Principals Paulo Arrais and sAnaïs Chalendard

World Ballet Day Live started in 2015 and it has been a great way for ballet companies and ballet dancers in training around the world to connect.  Catch some of World Ballet Day Live this year today, October 4th!

As someone who found a lot of joy in dancing since I was a little kid and now again as an adult, I look forward to this chance to step inside professional studios around the world.

On the blog I’ve written about Boston Ballet, because they are the company that I get to see perform the most and despite my rocky start with Boston Ballet years ago (when it was nothing close to the company that it is today) Boston Ballet is now one of my favourite companies to watch.  Last year my daughter and I were also able to see a really interesting and moving performance by Prometheus Dance.

This year, I hope to find time to see performances from some of the other local, smaller, but also very talented and creative companies in New England this year such as Jose Matteo’s Ballet TheatreJose Matteo’s Ballet Theatre (where I used to dance until my daughter was born 12 years ago).  This year, we also had the chance to see The National Ballet of Canada in Toronto, which was a real treat and then again the National Ballet of Canada while they were in New York City at Lincoln Center for their version of Shakespeare’s A Winter’s Tale.

If you want to go to the ballet this year or just about any performance in Boston here are some tips and tricks to get tickets and discounts.


For more on ballets and other of my favourite performances check this posts out.

The littlest dancers. Boston Ballet students learning their first position. Boston Ballet teacher Luciano Aimar is amazingly engaging for the youngest ballet students, keeping them moving and learning throughout their class.

October 1st is National Pumpkin Spice Day.  Find out how to upgrade your boring PSL here.

Five Ways to Go Above and Beyond the Pumpkin Spice Latte: National Coffee Day Upgrade

Okay, so my headline is misleading. I admit it.  Only two of these are coffee drinks but I wanted to throw one in for the tea-lovers too.  Yes, you noticed the other two don’t even have pumpkin anything.  Let’s face it a good pumpkin jam (yes I said jam) latté is worth all the hype but really, how much pumpkin anything does one need in one’s life. So here they are: two ways to upgrade your PSL fix, one tea that hits the pumpkin spice spot, and a couple of coffee cocktails because coffee and a cocktail in one is all that and a bale of hay.

The Pumpkin Jam Latté, Sofra (Cambridge, MA)

If you open my pantry you will find a jar of Sofra’s pumpkin jam stashed away in there all year round. It is sweet, smooth, and perfectly spiced.  I love it on toast, on pancakes and when I stop in at Sofra Bakery & Café in Cambridge, I like it in my coffee.  The Sofra pumpkin jam latté must be experienced at least once every fall. NB It is pretty delicious so even former PSL naysayers may become addicted.

Affogato with Autumn Spice Ice Cream, Rancatore’s  (Lexington, MA)

Put on your flannel shirt, your chunky boots, and your favourite fall scarf and strut into Ranc’s ice cream shop for a true taste of New England fall in a cup.  Order the affogato with Autumn Spice ice cream and you will get a generous scoop of the Autumn Spice ice cream topped with a rich Barissmo espresso and then let the two together, hot coffee and creamy cool ice cream, work their magic.

Pumpkin Chai with Pumpkin Agave David’s Tea (Multiple locations – Harvard Square Opening Friday, Sept. 30th)

Upgrade your chai tea by getting a Pumpkin Chai tea at David’s Tea.  You can have it steeped as a latté or as a tea.  Then to boost the quintessential “fall” factor, have it slightly sweetened with a little pumpkin agave.  If you can’t make it to a store, then turn your kitchen into a tea house and order everything you need online.

Affogato with House Made Coffee Whiskey, Kirkland Tap & Trotter (Cambridge, MA)

Affogato at Rancatore’s on a busy weekday afternoon is a great pick me up.  At the end of a long week though,what you really want is a spiked affogato after a tasty Kirkland Tap & Trotter meal.  KT&T has a delicious brunch and Sunday-Thursday 5:30-6:30 kids eat free (and the kids’ food here is amazing). While kids enjoy their dessert you can enjoy an affogato which is served with a shot of KT&T’s coffee whiskey.

The Revolver, Sycamore (Newton)

Another cocktail to consider this national coffee day is Sycamore’s revolver which is made with cold brew coffee, espresso liqueuer and mole bitters. Now that sounds killer!

Here on Huron: Cambridge’s Sweet Spot

If you have ever lived off of Huron Ave. there is a good  chance that it left a strong impression. Many move to this neighborhood and can never leave thanks to a certain gravitational force. Others are here for a few years only and then return to their homelands with a little piece of Cambridge welded to their hearts.  Then there are those who were born and raised here like thier parents and grandparents before them.  

This mish-mash of a community is part of what makes it so special.  The little ‘village’ center is also what makes the neighborhood so fabulous. We have everything at our fingertips here. Come snow, sleet, hazy, hot, or humid, everything one could possibly want is a short walk away.

This weekend at Here on Huron neighbors and visitors alike are invited to come together.  Just take a look at the history there is:

  • Cambridge Trust – 42 years
  • Half Crown Design – 6 years
  • The Village Kitchen – 15 years
  • Magic Beans – 7 years
  • Bryn Mawr Book Store – 45 years
  • Easy Chairs – 36 years
  • Huville Makerspace – 5 years
  • Matthew Feldman Gallery – 16 years
  • Estetika Spa – 3 years
  • Crate Escape Too – 14 years

Uncommonly Good: How to Joyfully Shop for Gifts (Sponsored)

Brands shift and change over years and new ones replace the others, but there are a few that have staying power.  Remember when Pottery Barn literally just sold chunky pottery?  There are some catalogs that I have been shopping with for as long as I can remember.  One of those shops, which I now order from online instead of from the pages of a catalog is UncommonGoods. 

Finding the perfect gift is something that is important to me.  I want recipient of my gift to feel appreciated and to receive a present they actually want and will use.  Now that everybody seemingly has access to everything at their fingertips, buying the perfect gift can be trickier.  You can search for hours through Etsy but that can be a dangerous black hole.  UncommonGoods reached out to me recently, to see if I would do a sponsored post and because I have loved this shop from the days before there even was an Etsy (or at least I didn’t know about it then) I was happy to.  I love that UncommonGoods seeks out handmade goods from both local artists and small manufacturers.  They sell many products made with recycled and organic materials.  They also do not sell anything made with leather, feathers or fur. 

Whether it is for a birthday present, an anniversary, or just because you want to treat yourself to something new for the home, your purse, or your children’s room, UncommonGoods has all the best things to choose from.


My husband is constantly cleaning our iPhones and we totally appreciate his fear of germs because those phones do get pretty gross. You just can’t see the germs.  This year already the kids have started school with a coughing, sneezing virus.  This little pod on Dan’s bedside table will totally make his day and night.  I just have to figure out if I want to give it to him now (Happy Friday!) or wait until Chanukah and Christmas to give it to him.


I also love looking for unique presents for the children to bring to birthday parties for their friends or for me to give my own children.  I love this rain gauge.  It isn’t really a child’s toy but I know the kids would get a kick out of tracking rain levels especially now that we have a little raised bed growing some fall broccoli and a shortage of rain.

If your child has got the travel bug or wants to learn more about the world, this is a fun addition to their room. They can scratch off where they have been or if world travel isn’t in the budget for now, they can scratch off countries as they learn more about each culture, or maybe try foods from different regions.  The possibilities are endless.

For wedding gifts and anniversaries, UncommonGoods has so many beautiful, unique personalized housewares and artwork.  I love the birch bark bowls, tree stump rings and glasses with initials and a heart engraved on them, but sometimes personalized doesn’t need have your names etched in.  I have always loved these lumen oil projector lamps.  The trees remind me of the times that my husband and I have enjoyed in Vermont as a couple when we used to go skiing and hiking there and now the trees up in Tremblant National Park where we go for the summer as a family.  It is personal without being personalized.

What gifts are you shopping for lately?  I know many friends who are going to weddings and baby showers.  Happy uncommon shopping!
