I am such a foodie! I love to find new places to try for desserts.

Last weekend I was going to a cookout and I decided to bring cupcakes. My friend Pauline served cupcakes from Cake. in Lexington, Massachusetts at one of her teas and they were delish. So I thought I would give Cake a try.

Cake. is located in a house, perhaps it was once a multi family home. The building was charming right down to the plants and the bistro set on the porch.

And look at the delivery van. Too cute!

I love the red colored walls. The interior was really nicely done.

I am guessing Ethan is really going to enjoy his first birthday cake. And the women picking up the cake were nice to let me photograph it.

Well the lemon loco cupcakes I had purchased were wonderful. And I placed an order with Cake. for my Sister's birthday cake. Sunday is her birthday.

Cake. is located at 1628 Massachusetts Ave, Lexington, Massachusetts. Click here to visit their website.

Have you ever been to Gourmet Farm on Bedford Street? The BEST turkey sandwiches in the world. Back in the day I worked for DeWolfe R.E. and used to go to Lexington once a month for corporate meetings and I never missed a chance to get the Turkey Terrific ( I think it is called)!
Oooh, I would love to go there! Looks great! :)
Thank you so much for visiting Modern Country Style and for your kind comment. I came ot have a peep at yours and I love it! I love your writing style.

Appleton Farms- Farm to Table and more

Friday night I rushed home from work, fed the kitties, changed my clothes and picked up my sister at her house. I couldn't wait to head up to Ipswich, MA and Appleton Farms for their farm to table dinner.  As soon as we pulled into the entrance of the property, all the tensions of the day went away.

The weather was cool, a perfect temperature for outdoor dining, live music and lawn games. What a peaceful setting.

The sign said play & have fun. I did not know how much fun we really would have.

Here's a view from the field. The tables were ready outside and there were more inside the barn.

Fences and stone walls encircled the field and property. Hay bales were set up as seating for listening to the live entertainment for the evening.

The band was named The Austin Torpedoes. They were wonderful. We really enjoyed their performance.

Lemonade was available at a self serve station. You could buy beer or wine from the Ipswich Ale Brewery Truck. Yes, the spiggots were right on …

Embracing the season-my Autumn checklist

It's the most wonderful time of the year! I am speaking of my favorite season Fall. We are in the thick of it now and it is fabulous! It's not quite peak foliage but we are getting there.

Here are my reasons to embrace Fall.

1.  Outdoor dining- Those early Fall days are even better than in Summer. Cooler temps make it more comfortable sitting in the sun and the scene is more colorful. In late Fall, I switch to sitting by fireplaces whenever I can.

2. Old graveyards- I am strangely drawn to old graveyards in the Fall. Maybe it's because most graveyards have fantasticly colorful trees and I just notice them more in Fall. Or perhaps it's the Halloween connection.

We have some very old graveyards in New England and they are definitely worth a visit.
You could even take a historic graveyard or ghost tour. There is a graveyard tour in my hometown in two weeks.

3. An Autumn Walk- What's better than an Autumn walk around your neighborhood?

I love to pick up some colorful …
