I big shout to Doggies at The Beach for taking such good care of my little Diva, Miss Addy.  Doggies at the beach is a 3,500 square foot indoor, cage free doggie day care.  It is Miss Addy’s home away from home.  While visiting Doggies at the Beach she met Santa.  I know what her expression is telling me, but I am glad she went along with the program.  Doggies at The Beach is located at 18806 J. Williams Hwy. in Rehoboth Beach.  Tel. 302-644-8200.  They have 24 hour human supervision and even web cams so that you can follow your precious pooch.  Grooming is also available.  They are on Facebook, as well.  Check them out because they are always hosting events and very much involved in the community.  Jim and his staff are very caring and obviously they love dogs!!  Please visit http://www.doggiesatthebeach.com.

This would be a great stocking stuffer for your dog.  Your pooch will love these Tail Bangers made with whole wheat flour, rolled oats, eggs, canola oil, fresh ground peanuts, honey, cinnamon, with a vanilla yogurt coating.  Tail Bangers are made in Millsboro, Delaware, about 1/2 hour from Rehoboth Beach.  The company has gone big, a success story.  I have not visited but can’t wait to do so.  You can find Tail Bangers at Doggies at The Beach, Candy Kitchen, Pet Stores in the area and even the UPS store at the Safeway Shopping Center.  I took them as a gift to my friend’s dog, Dale, in Bluffton, South Carolina and they were a big hit.  So, I decided to try them myself.  They smell so good.  I took a bite and they were not bad at all.  After all they are made with all natural ingredients.  Tail Bangers is located at 24546 Betts Pond Rd., Millsboro, DE 19956   You can find them on Facebook and Twitter. Website?  www.tailbangers.com.

Another great stocking stuffer for those that love to cook and for your favorite foodies are these Sea Salts made right here on the coast by SoDel Concepts.  There is the Bay Spice, the Summer Lemon Zest, and the Black Pepper Fennel.  You can get these salts at any of SoDel Concepts Restaurants from Lewes to Fenwick Island.  For the locations of the restaurants, please visit http://www.sodelconcepts.com.

Another perfect gift….a book, the perfect companion.  Truddi Chase was from Maryland.  Her story was made into a movie years ago, base on her first book When Rabbit Howls.  The movie was called Voices Within: The Lives of Truddi Chase.  It was an autobiography about her experiences after being diagnosed with dissociative identity disorder.  Truddi was interviewed by Oprah.  Her story is a fascinating one of survival after been sexually abuse from age two.  She coped by developing 92 personalities.  She never integrated them so she lived with them all of her life until she died in 2010.  Her second book has just come out thanks to her daughter, Kari, who lives in Lewes.  This second book is more whimsical.  All art work is by Truddi and the different personalities.  The name of the book is The Creature of Habit.  You can get it at http://www.truddichase.com

Lewes Eats! Agave, Mexican Cuisine, Restaurant, Bar, Lewes, Delaware, Southern Delaware, Delaware Beaches…Buen Provecho!

dscn4871

One of my pet peeves is that I hate to wait.  More so, at restaurants.  With so many popular restaurants not taking reservations at the Delaware Beaches, well, let’s say that at times it is a bit annoying.  Not such a great way to start a post.   But, keep reading because I am posting about one of my favorite restaurants in Lewes…Agave.  It is located at 137 2nd St.  Tel. 302-645-1232.  You can find it on Facebook.

DSCN1072

There are times that the wait at Agave is a couple of hours in the evening.  If you do not mind, please then head to the bar and start having some of the delicious Margaritas and Martinis that they do offer.  Otherwise, you can put your name down and come back later.  Or, if you do not want to wait, then you know what else you can do.  Maybe lunch might be a better idea for you.

dscn4866

If you arrive right at Noon you might find the restaurant looking like some of these photos.  But soon enough it will be crowded.  Originally, Agave was pretty small then an addition has given them more seating which is great.

dscn4861

dscn4860

So the other night when Sharon and I arrived for a little Mexican fare, we were surprised that our wait was only like 20 minutes.  We sat looking at the gorgeous desserts…wondering if their famous Coconut Cake would be our choice for dessert.  Or, Pot de Creme or Flan.

dscn6259

I do have my favorites.  I started with their Mexican Chili.  I truly love it.  I don’t know if it is because it is made with beef tenderloin or not, but the flavor is so good.  A rich broth, topped with queso fresco and a side of warm tortillas.  On chilly night, it is perfect and pretty filling, as well.

dscn1418

Their Mango and Avocado Salad is also a must have if you like something a littler lighter.  The mango and avocado is in a bed of bib lettuce, topped with bacon, queso fresco, pine nuts and a creamy pine nut lime dressing.  Queso Fresco is a crumbled goat cheese.

DSCN1067

Agave has a signature dish called Chiles en Nogada.  It is always on their menu.  I told my friend, Sharon, that she should have it.  This is meat stuffed poblano chiles with cumin, cinnamon and azafran.  A drizzle of a nut sauce with an addition of rice and beans.

dscn6257

These Chiles en Nogada is a sophisticaded dish most popular during Mexican Independence festivities.  It incorporates the green, white, and red ingredients just like the colors of the Mexican flag.

A poblano pepper is a mild chile pepper from the State of Puebla in Mexico.  When it is dried out is is called Ancho Chile.  It is a most popular pepper grown in Mexico.  The dish above has a light sweetness to it, perhaps the outcome of the combination of ingredients.  Very good indeed.

We decided on the Coconut Cake for dessert but I had a reason for ordering it.  First of all I have always heard that it is so good.  I am not too much of a coconut cake fan but I wanted to compare it to another coconut cake that people raved about served at the Peninsula Grill in Charleston, South Carolina.

dscn6261

Last February while in Charleston everyone said we needed to try the cake at the Peninsula Grill. They said it so much that we made reservations.  Great entrees, I posted on this website, and then came dessert time.  This cake has 12 layers and they have been making it since 1997.  There is even a trademark as Peninsula Grill Ultimate Coconut Cake.  It weighs 12 lbs., and you can order it and be sent to you FedEx.  Every night you take a glimpse at tables and for dessert you will find the customers do order it a lot.  Here is a photo of my piece of cake.  It reminded me of a Smith Island Cake.

dscn3695

Agave’s Coconut Cake came to the table and it was huge.  And we, actually, ate it all.

DSCN1069

Having had those two magnificent cakes I can tell you that I do prefer to have the individual layers on a cake, but the Agave’s version was definitely, more moist.  I am probably not the best person to review a Coconut Cake, since I do like more tarts than cakes, but all I can tell you is that they were dense and full of flavor.  Next time at Agave’s try it and if by chance you are visiting Historic Charleston, check it out there, as well.  You decide.

Now, a lemon tart….love it!!  The photo of the lemon tart is from the second dessert we had at the Peninsula Grill in Charleston.

Buen Provecho….Hasta Luego!!

“Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others.”  booker t. washington

With that quote I begin my post by reminding you that Delaware is a Small Wonder with a Big Heart.  Fundraising events happen all year round, but it seems that as the Second Season takes hold of all of us living in Southern Delaware, we set records for fundraising.  It is incredible the amount of money raised to help others.

I got an invite to a Kick Off Party for the Southern Delaware Wine, Food and Music Festival which will take place on Saturday, October 17th (noon until 4:30 p.m.) at Independence Hall located at 23767 Samuel Adams Circle in Millsboro, Delawared.  Even though the address is Millsboro, it is, actually, closer to the beaches.

DSCN0349DSCN0350

The Kick Off Party took place at (a)Muse on Baltimore Avenue in Downtown Rehoboth Beach, on Thursday, 9/17.  My friend, Susan DiMondi came with me to see what all the commotion was all about.

Let me tell you a little about What is Going On…

This event is being billed as the “ultimate wine, food and music event on DelMarVa”.  It will be hosted by former Bad Company bassist, now food, wine and music aficionado, Paul Cullen.  It will be a fun and refined afternoon of food, beer and wine samplings and pairings, cooking demos, and a great musical line-up.

This is a benefit for Rotary’s Global Polio Eradication Initiative and Lewes-Rehoboth Meals on Wheels.

This is an inaugural SoDelFest.  The culinary Theater will host the chef showcases/demos, where you will find Neil Fuentes, The Singing Chef and Food Rewrapped Champion and 5 of our top local chefs including: Hari Cameron, Lion Gardner, Doug Ruley, Ronnie Burkle and Sean Correa.

The festival will also offer wine and food pairings with 13 local restaurants including; Abbot’s Grille, Bluecoast, Seafood Grill, Bramble and Brine, Cultured Pearl, Grandpa 9Mac), JD Shuckers, Lupo’s Italian Kitchen, Michy’s Relaxed Dining, Nage, Palate, Semra’s, Summerhouse and Touch of Italy.

You will be able to experience the Man Cave….don’t worry we are all welcome for cocktails, a raw bar and Cigars!  Join Rob Bagle from Bramble & Brine and representatives from Wigle Whiskey, Dad’s Hat, Benromach Scotch, George’s Bloody Mary Mix (a new local favorite from Berline, Maryland) and 16 Mile Brewery.  There may just be oyster shooters there!

30 wines will be offered by Teller Wines and the distributors for pairing and additional tastes.  Dogfish Head and Mispillion Breweries will be pouring their fall favorites at the bar!

There will be 2 special wine education seminars in the Wine University; Mike Zygmonski (Level II Sommelier, Sodel Concepts) will present a blind tasting and John McDonald (Wine Columnist, Cape Gazette) will present Wine 101 for anyone who wants to learn about the art of Wine Tasting.

General Admission tickets are $75 and there is a VIP upgrade that includes two special tastings at 95+ point wines and exclusive cheeses and a seat on-stage during one of the chef showcases.  The press is invited at no charge with advance notice.  Please visit http://www.sodelfest.com

Presenting Sponsor:  Ocean Atlantic Companies

Major Sponsors:  Schell Brothers, Sysco, SoDel Concepts, Coastal Style

Sponsors:  Good Clean Fun Life, Sposato Family Vineyards, Active Adult Realty

Event Chair is Stacy LaMotta

Event Coordinator is Carlene Roche

Volunteer Coordinator is Meg Gardner

Arriving at (a)Muse Susan and I were invited to taste some of the wines offered by Sposato.  For 6 years the Sposato Family researched, studied and visited South America.  In 2012 the family purchased their farm in the heart of Argentina’s wine country, Mendoza.

DSCN0340

Based on their 23 years of experience in working with land, soil irrigation and plants, by running their top rated landscape company, Sposato Landscape Co., they saw this as a great opportunity to further their experience in the agriculture industry.  The farm was purchased as virgin ground.  A new irrigation system, electric and other improvements have been installed with more to come.

The farm is 250 acreas located in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, 3,000 ft. above sea level.  Sposato Family Vineyard has some of the best and most popular wineries in Argentina as neighbors.  The farm is located between two notable wineries, Bodega Septima and Vina Cobos by Paul Hobbs with more just around the corner.

DSCN0345

We tasted 2015 Chardonnay.  This fruit focused Chardonnay has an attractive color with aromas of tropical fruit, apples and peaches.  Also a 2015 Sauvignon Blanc, from their prize winning high elevation vineyards has aromas of grapefruit, passion fruit, herbs, species and orange blossom notes that are persistent through the finish.  The 2013 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon has intense red with blue shades. Another one was their 2013 Reserve Malbec…intense violet color, typical of Argentine Malbec.  And the 2014 Malbec had deep purple color, with high intensity of black fruits, raspberries and violets.  Please note that you can get the wines in the Rehoboth Beach and Lewes area.

A presentation was given by all of those that are involved and making sure that this will be an unforgettable event.

Lewes Eats! Nectar Cafe & Juice Bar, Best Baked Chicken in Town, Dogfish 60 Minute Baked Chicken, Best Cauliflower Steak, Restaurant, Review, Historic Lewes, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware

dscn5129

I am looking outside my windows and all I see are gray skies and a light drizzle….I hear your pain if you are visiting us this week-end at the Delaware Beaches.  But look at the brighter side.  Change of scenery.  You left the city.  You can still walk, shop tax free and of course, there is always plenty to eat.

Weather like this brought back to my attention the most delicious baked chicken, so far, around here.  Let me tell you a bit about where you can go and try it.  I am not kidding you; it is the best.

Nectar Cafe & Juice Bar is located at 111 Neils Alley, Lewes, DE 19958.  Tel. 302-645-5842.  Website? http://www.cafenectar.com You can also find it on Facebook.

dscn5128dscn5125

Nectar is open every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  They also have an amazing juice bar, where you can even customize your juices.

This is the second year for Nectar and a few months ago, they started serving dinner.  Everything is made in-house.

dscn5124

The restaurant is comfortable.  You may take a seat on the sofa and have a drink .  It is the cutest place.

Let me get back to this awesome chicken:  The Dogfish 60 Minute Baked Chicken

dscn5121

You will get half a chicken, which has been marinated and baked in iconic Dogfish 60min IPA and served with beer honey-mustard glaze.  Comes with mac and cheese and coleslaw.  It is best eaten, of course, with a cold bottle of 60 Minute IPA…just add $3 extra.  It is so good and a very generous portion.  Just try it for yourself and let me know.

Another dish that I am also very hooked on is their Cauliflower Steak, served over rice pilaf with Romesco sauce and topped with olives, capers and roasted tomato.  This is a vegan dish.  The cauliflower steak is first roasted and then finished in the frying pan.  Romesco Sauce is a nut and red pepper base sauce that originated in the area of Terragona in Northern Spain.  It is so good and a very generous portion, as well.

dscn5119

You might think that the Chocolate Avocado Torte sounds different.  Hey, that’s why I ordered it.  If you love chocolate, you will love it too.  The avocado is a healthy fat so don’t be afraid to try it, because it is delish.

dscn5122

There is a cheese that is one of my favorites.  It is called Midnight Moon.  Nectar carries it.  I always think that it would be perfect to have it with a nice glass of wine, enjoying one of our full moons at the beach.

dscn5126dscn5117

Nectar is very aware of food allergies.  Please ask if you have any questions because they have gluten free, vegan and they are happy to accommodate their customers.  They want you back!!

Have a good one!!
