Oceanfront, nothing beats it…the sound of the waves is so relaxing, and the breathtaking views of the  ocean…priceless!!  After visiting The Preserve in North Beathany Beach, Delaware, I truly see why these beaches in North Bethany are so desirable.

North Bethany is known for its miles of private beaches.  The Preserve was established, I believe, 15 years ago.  There are about, maybe, 5o homes in this gated community.  It has pool and tennis courts.  It also has lifeguards during the summer months.

Rehoboth Eats, Tortellini Salad, Pasta, Salami, Cheese….Recipe, Easy


This recipe is really good, if I say so myself.  Even though it is not one of the most dietetic recipes, I think you will like it.  Friends will be asking you for the recipe.  It is the perfect recipe to take to a party, picnic or beach.  It does travel well.

It is pasta, and it does have salami and cheese, but to tell you the truth, it is pretty light and I think it has to do with the dressing.

Don’t eat it all at once, but if you do eat more than you wanted to, then just increase you exercise routine by about 3 hours.  That should do it!!


20 ounces cheese tortellini (any kind), cooked al dente and drained

1/4 cup minced fresh parsley

1/2 lb. salami, cubed

1/2 lb. Havarti cheese, cubed (I bought the one that had jalapenos.)

1 red or green bell pepper, chopped

1 cup sliced black olives

6 green onions, including tops, sliced


6 tablespoons red wine vinegar

1 cup virgin olive oil

2 teaspoons dried basil

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

1/4 teaspoon of salt (I did not add any since the salami and cheese had plenty.)

1/2 teaspoon of pepper

2 garlic cloves, minced (optional)

In a large bowl, combine tortellini, parsley, salami, cheese, bell pepper, olives and green onions.

In a blender or food processor, combine all dressing ingredients; blend well.  Pour dressing over salad and toss thoroughly.

Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour.  If making it over 3 hours ahead of time, reserve half the dressing and toss with salad just before serving.

Serves about 10 people.

Enjoy and make it your own.

Eating Delray Beach, Florida, The Office, American Gastropub, Summer Comfort Menu, Lunch & Dinner, Sunday through Thursday, The Village by The Sea, South Florida, Palm Beach County


When visiting Delray Beach, Florida, usually a highlight of the trip is revisiting the restaurants that have become favorites and checking out the new ones, as well. Delray Beach is a dining, shopping and vacation destination. So, easy to get to, with 2 airports within half hour from the town.

If I were to tell you that it is the “off season” in Delray maybe there might be some truth to it. It is summer in Florida and many have headed north. But, don’t get me wrong, you might find it easier to find parking and maybe might be able to get into the restaurants without waiting too long, but all you have to do is hit Atlantic Avenue, Pineapple Grove, A1A in the early evening and you will see residents and visitors enjoying the warm weather, dining al fresco, and sipping their favorite drinks.

Some of the restaurants are offering summer menus, and The Office in Delray Beach is offering an Inventive Summer Comfort Menu with 2 and 3-course prix fixe options for lunch and dinner, Sunday through Thursday, until the end of September, 2013.


The Office opened in Delray, I believe, almost 5 years ago, by restauranteur and entrepeneur, John Rosatti. It has the perfect location, a corner on trendy and busy Atlantic Avenue…201 East Atlantic Avenue. Tel. 561-276-3600. Website?


Executive Chef Joseph “Joe” Coletto is providing diners with the option of choosing 2 courses for $25 (either an appetizer and an entree, or an entree and a dessert), or 3 courses for $35 (one appetizer, one entree, and one dessert).  This menu is available every week from Sunday through Thursday until the end of September, 2013.  Tax and gratuity are not included.

Outdoor dining, al fresco, at sidewalk…with these tables you will not miss any of the happenings on the Avenue.


The setting is reminiscent of a luxurious home office, for lunch and dinner, daily.


For both Summer Comfort Prix Fixe Menus, the appetizer choices are:  Quesadilla, Deviled Eggs which are the best, Fried Pickles, Grown-Up Tater Tots, House-Smoked Fish Nachos, Warm Baked Pretzel Bread, Side Salad – House or Caesar, BBQ Chinese Chicken Wings, Chicken Shu-Mai Duplings, and Sweet Potato Chips.



Entree choices are:  Veggie Burger, Office Burger, BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich, Buffalo Chicken Sandwich, Grilled Marinated Hanger Steak, Baby Back Ribs, Pan-Roasted Free Bird Chicken, Simply Grilled Salmon, Coconut Curry PEI Mussels, Dark English Ale-Battered Fish, and Boneless Country Fried Chicken.



Dessert choices are:  Apple Crumble, Mini Ice Cream Sandwiches, Maple-and Bacon Glazed Donuts, Golden Raisin and Chocolate Bread Pudding, and Blueberry Creme Brulee.

Specialty cocktails like The Red Stapler made with Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Prickly Pear, Agave Nectar, and lemon juice are among the many drinks found at The Office.  The Office also serves 39 craft beers on draft, including Bell’s Two Hearted, IPA, the number one ranked IPA in the U.S., along with offerings from Cigar City, Oskar Blues, and our very own Dogfish from Delaware!!


The designed wine list, with 25 wines by the glass and 90 wines by the bottle, from California, Italy, New Zealand, Argentina and Australia.

Happy Hour is from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m. and it features 50% off of all drinks, wines by the glass, bottle and draft beer, and cocktails, at both the indoor and outdoor bars.  The Happy Hour offers a pre-selected Happy Hour bar menu, as well.

The Late Night Happy Hour is from 10 p.m. until closing, featuring 50% off of all drinks at both bars, indoor and outdoor.

Hope you have a great time in Delray!!  Talk to you later.

Tour Delaware Lighthouses, Lewes, Delaware, Delaware River & Bay Lighthouse Foundation, Harbor of Refuge Lighthouse, Delaware Breakwater East End Lighthouse, Lighthouse Tours Summer 2013, Walk in The Steps of The Keeper! Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware


I wanted to walk in the steps of The Keeper.  I cannot imagine what it would have been like to be the keeper of a lonely offshore lighthouse.  From the Cape May-Lewes Ferry I have seen them from a distance.  But, not anymore.  2013 was the year to visit these lighthouses.


The Delaware Breakwaters are engineer marvels of the 19th century.  They were the first structures of their kind to be built in the Western Hemisphere.  The Delaware Breakwater, Delaware Breakwater East End Lighthouse, Harbor of Refuge Breakwater, and Harbor of Refuge Light Station entered in 1976 on the National Register of Historic Places as the nation’s first offshore Historic District.


The Delaware River & Bay Lighthouse Foundation is the caretaker of the lighthouses.  They were also in charge of the tours.  The tours are $35 for adults.  Even though the website,, says that you are to send the forms in with a check, I did it through the telephone with a credit card by calling 302-644-7046.  I left my name and number and someone called me back.


The tour departs from the finger pier behind the Cape May-Lewes Ferry Terminal on Cape Henlopen Drive.  The next tour is on Saturday, 6/22.   Make sure you arrive 20 minutes in advance.  Free parking at the Foot Passanger Terminal.  Please visit the website above mentioned for a complete schedule and plenty of information.


I arrived on Saturday, May 18th, ready to discover the lighthouses.  They are practically in my backyard.  They had already told me that no sandals or open-toe shoes were allowed.  The tours will go on light rain or shine.  But, rough seas, heavy rain or threat of severe weather may cause the tour to be cancelled. Foundation members will attempt to contact you as quickly as possible.  Please make sure you give them your cell phone when making the reservation.


The Delaware River & Bay Lighthouse Foundation had their tent up and already there was merchandise for purchase.



Our group had assembled for information and safety instructions, including the proper way to put your lifejacket on.


Big Stone Pride was our transporter to the Lighthouses.


And once we all got on it….off we went


We were heading first to the Harbor of Refuge Lighthouse Station.  It stands like a proud sentinel at the mouth of the Delaware Bay, always watching.  Even though you see them clearly from the distance it takes a little bit to get there.  Already there was a boat with whale watchers trying to get close, but we would get even closer.  The Harbor of Refuge is closed for repairs made by severe storm damage.  But, we were going to get very close in order to get photos.



It was a calm day, but a little cloudy and windy.  You could feel how strong the water was; had to hold on to the railings as we went on deck.  This 76 foot sentinel was built in 1926 to replace a previous storm-damanged one.  Harbor of Refuge is one of the most exposed lighthouses on the Atlantic seaboard.  The Delaware River & Bay Lighthouse Foundation has photos with mountainous seas pounding it all the way to the top.



And just like at the Delaware Breakwater East End Lighthouse, a family of ospreys had returned, like they have been doing for a few years.


Then, we continued our tour to the Delaware Breakwater East End Lighthouse.


In 1828 the construction began on the breakwater wall.  The rocks were brough by donkeys from quarries in Pennsylvania and Delaware.  That’s why it took so long.  So, we were all looking forward to getting off the boat and start exploring.


On this photo you can see the small concrete oil house once used for storing lighthouse fuel, now home to the resident osprey pair.




The tower on this lighthouse is 56 feet high.  The light is shown at 61 feet above the water.


And, the red panels warned ships off nearby shoals and the tip of the Cape.


In the entry level, the Delaware Public Archives Historic Marker.  Two-foot-thick brick line inside the cast iron outer shell of the lighthouse.


Second and third levels were the living quarters, including the kitchen.  Food came from Rickards and Ramsey grocery store on Lewes Beach.  The keepers ate a lot of fish, which they caught.



The rooms were small but they were the living quarters for 3 to 5 keepers at a time.



From the outside walkway on the Watch Room’s the views were spectacular.



The dolphins were playing….the kayakers were having a great day!


Climbing the stairs to the Lantern Room….


In November 2011, the State Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs commissioned an inspection of the lens by a professional lampist.  He determined that the original Fresnel lens had been replaced with the current lense, which was made in Sweden by AGA around the 1920s. The lens is fragile.  Prism can be damanged by human touch so please keep your hands to yourselves.  Do not touch the lens.


Four-bulb lamp changer that automatically rotates when one of the small bulbs that now provides the light burns out.  Light visible for 13 miles out to sea.


In 2004 the Delaware River & Bay Authority entered into an operating agreement with Delaware River & Bay Lighthouse Foundation for public outreach.  In 2005 the Foundation opened it for the first public tours.

If you like historic lighthouses this tour is for you….and for the rest, it is an amazing way to discover The First Town in The First State.

It was time to go, the tour was over and down the stairs we went just like the Keepers would have done.


And the ospreys?  Well, this is their hangout…they will be waiting for you to return!


Note:  Information for this post was taken from the Delaware River & Bay Lighthouse Foundation’s website and from the facts and figures we saw during the tour.

Meatless Monday, Mango Kale Salad, So Easy, Vegetarian

During the First Rehoboth VegFest I got a taste of Dr. Ruby Lathon’s Mango Kale Salad.  It has been a few weeks since that event, and I have made it several times.  Enough with the kale my husband said.  Haha!

The weather is getting warmer and warmer and I think this salad could be a great addition to your summer recipes.

I did not know 2 of the ingredients:  Red Star Yeast Flakes and Bragg Liquid Aminos.  A trip to our local Rehoboth Health Food Store is all it took.  Rehoboth has a new health food store called Good News Natural Foods.  It is located at 220 Rehoboth Avenue.  Website?

Red Star Yeast Flakes – It is a vitamin fortified food product.  It is a source of high quality protein, amino acids, vitamins and fiber.  It can be added to your meals and drinks, sprinkle on popcorn, or use as a seasoning for salads, soups, casseroles and gravies.  It is gluten free, but packaged in a facility that processes soy, wheat, milk, eggs and peanuts.   My husband has celiac disease and did not have any problems.  More info?  Please visit


Bragg Liquid Aminos – It is an all purpose seasoning from soy protein; natural soy sauce alternative.  It has naturally occurring sodium; none is added.  Gluten free.  More info?



Please note that this recipe makes 6 to 8 servings.  You can adapt it to your needs.

2 bunches curly kale, washed and torn into small pieces


3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 medium red onion, chopped

2 or 3 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced (optional)

2 or 3 tablespoons Bragg’s Liquid Aminos

2 or 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast

Cayenne pepper, to taste

1 large, ripe or almost ripe mango, peeled and diced into small squares.


Place the kale in a large bowl.  Massage the kale for a minute or two to soften it.


Drizzle the olive oil over the kale and toss with salad tongs to coat all leaves with the olive oil.

Add the remaining ingredients and toss well.


Serve and Enjoy!!


Note:  I only used one bunch of the curly kale since there were only 2 of us eating.  I think I would use 2 mangos if using 2 bunches.

If you would like other recipes from Dr. Ruby Lathon, please visit  You can also find her on Facebook.
