The Time When a Young Man's Fancy Turns to Love

Hi everyone,

Happy Spring to you all. Isn't it beautiful to see all the trees and flowers starting to bloom? The Inn is showing signs of rebirth with everything in bloom and turning green. And the chicks are getting so big. They don't look like chicks anymore. They look like real chickens. Can't wait to taste those fresh eggs.

Warwick and the surrounding towns are also getting ready with all sorts of events and happenings to celebrate the season. On May 1st, Warwick is hosting it's first ever Bridal Trail. Vendors from all over the area will line the village streets to welcome brides-to-be and offer all kinds of products and services to make their special day even more special.

On April 25th, visit Vernon Earth Fest 2010 in Vernon, New Jersey at Mountain Creek South. The Earthfest committee has been working hard to make this years celebration the best ever and the most meaningful to our environment

In May, come participate in the Warwick Annual Duck Derby. Thousands of plastic yellow ducks are released into the Waywayanda Creek in Warwick. Each duck is numbered with a corresponding ticket sold to the public. The winner gets $1000 and the proceeds go to the Winslow Therapeutic Center. The center provides a full range of medically and educationallly approved riding therapies for riders with disabilities.

Now I would like to share with you a great recipe that Bill and I stumbled upon. Great to serve with a nice cup of tea to our guests and your kids will love them. And boy are they easy to make.

Coconut Macaroons

10 egg whites

2 1/2 cups of sugar

4 lbs. of sweetened coconut

1 tblsp. vanilla extract

pinch of salt.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment.

Place egg whites, salt, sugar, and vanilla in the bowl of your elec. mixer.

Mix well for 1 minute. Add coconut and mix until well blended.

Keeping your hands wet, form into golf sized mounds and pinch slightly so the macaroon holds.

Bake at 350 degrees until outside of macaroon in golden brown.

When totally cooled, peel from parchment and dip bottoms of macaroon in melted chocolate and place back on parchment or waxed paper to harden.

We hope you are all enjoying the beautiful weather and we'd love it if you came up to see us sometime. Lots to see and do in the area so hope to see you soon. Remember, Warwick is just a tank of gas away and with everyone watching their budgets, The Inn at Stony Creek is the perfect affordable getaway.
