31st Annual Harvest Honey Festival in Oregon Ridge Yesterday was the 31st Annual Harvest Honey Festival at Oregon Ridge.  Funny thing is, I had never heard about it before.  I usually buy honey at the Maryland State Fair but this year I didn't get a chance to because I was jus too busy.  I wrote to the local Beekeepers Association and asked where I could purchase local honey and they directed me to the Honey Festival. We had a great time at Oregon Ridge yesterday.  There were Re-enactors on hand to display and talk about the life and times during the Civil War, including medicine.  Women were demonstrating knitting and crochet as well as other handicrafts and what their lives were like during the time.  And, there were also firearms displays and musicians on hand playing the drums and f...

India Palace in Cockeysville I had the pleasure of having lunch at the India Palace in Cockeysville today.  I love good food and I love ethnic foods so when I have the opportunity to try a new restaurant I do.  I have been wanting to try the India Palace and today I finally had the chance.  The restaurant is located on the corner of Cranbrook Road and York Road in Cockeysville.  The restaurant is much larger than it looks from the outside and serves a great buffet.  I find Buffet's are a great way to try different kinds of food to decide whether you like it or not.  Fortunately, everything I tried today was fantastic.  The Naan bread was fresh and warm, onion pakura was delicious and so were all the other dishes I tried and I finished it off with delicious rice pudding.  The week day lu...

The Best BBQ in Baltimore (perhaps Maryland) - Andy Nelson's BBQ It doesn't get much better than this.  One of my favorite places to eat is Andy Nelson's BBQ located at 11011 York Road in Cockeysville.  It might not be fancy but the service is great and the food is better.  The menu is extensive and delicious.  Meat is slow cooked over a hickory fire until it is fall of the bone delicious.  We enjoyed a brisket sandwich and pulled pork Friday night for dinner.  Greens are prepared in the traditional southern way.  Sides include your choice of greens, bbq potato wedges, slaw, corn bread, corn on cob, potato salad, or bbq baked beans.  My personal favorite are the greens and potato wedges but everything on the menu is equally delicious.  You can enjoy your meal inside in air conditioned c...
