Looking for a fun night out surrounded by like-minded foodies? Check out Newport Cooks!
I’ve personally attended four Newport Cooks classes and not only have I had a blast at each one, but I’ve definitely left with a few great take-aways for my kitchen. A few weeks ago, I interviewed Mary Weaver, owner of Newport Cooks. Here is my interview (paraphrased) with her along with some of my own commentary.

As I sat down to write this blog, my intention was to make the point that no matter how old you are, you can still grow and transform old habits.

My husband and I feel incredibly grateful to live in beautiful Newport, RI which also happens to be a top tourist destination. But, I will admit, the summer crowds can start to get old come September. Thankfully, the spring and fall provide beautiful weather without the crowds. I also find the quite winter months to be especially nice.

I may be alone in this feeling, but I’ll share it anyway….
I really like winter. While most people are counting down the days until spring, I enjoy the quiet and slower-paced months of January and February. I feel that Mother Nature gives me permission this time of year to slow down, and enjoy things like warming soups, candles, and staying inside to study.
I do look forward to the longer days of spring and summer, but I really do appreciate winter for being, well, winter.
