Welcome to the Frog Hollow Farm blog! I've been blogging since January 2010 and have switched from Blogger to Word Press, but I'm back to Blogger because, for me, it's easier to use. My husband and I live on a little farm in Northwest New Jersey. We have some chickens and a very large vegetable garden with asparagus and raspberries, and rows and rows of sunflowers, snapdragons and zinnias. Traveling, entertaining, gardening, spending time with family, studying Italian, blogging and reading keep us busy and happy. With all of this going on, moving towards a simpler life seems almost impossible but it's definitely a daily goal.

Good Morning to the Sunshine and Melting Snow

This past weekend we had a St. Patrick's Day celebration here at Frog Hollow Farm with sisters, brothers, cousins, neices and nephews.  It was a great day, a little crowded inside the house with 24 people but all went well.  We set up all of the food ahead of time:  appetizers (all cold or room temp), hot food on the kitchen table keeping warm, and a dessert and coffee bar in the pantry.  Most everything was homemade by me or my family, but I did cheat with some store-bought desserts and a couple of catered appetizers.  (Costco makes a mean cheesecake by the way!)

Our famous Irish Blessing Cocktails were also on the menu, set up on the old step-back cupboard in the pantry.

Have a wonderful day!
