While Baby and I were away in Maine for our vacation, we went even further down east. What gorgeous weather we had! We spent a wonderfully wild overnight in Wayne, Maine (yes, we hadn't ever heard of it either) to be with our friends at their neighboring places on the beautiful Androscoggin lake. After an afternoon of frolicking about in the lake and enjoying a couple of cocktails, we sat down on a cozy porch with a few generations of family for a wonderful dinner served from a well-seasoned grill. Sliced summer squash, zucchini, Vidalia onions, carrots and a trio of red, yellow and green peppers communed with sweet Italian sausage and were served simply over buttered brown rice while we all got to laugh and talk over one another. What a delicious mix for an evening--and I don't mean just the wonderful task of composing our grilled vegetables, but the composition of friends and family as well.

In 2010 he was published in Foodista’s Best of Food Blogs Cookbook. He toiled as web editor for industry leader Interior Design magazine for several years and has also written for New York magazine, Travel & Leisure and Woman’s Day.
A proud graduate of the University of New Hampshire, one of the nation’s top drinking schools, Mr. Sherwood also studied voice and theater abroad at Regent’s College, in London’s historic Regent’s Park, and at the Royal Academy of Music. He spent a year at Hunter College in Manhattan.
