Every time I arrive at the Furniture Market in High Point, I’m amazed by its magnitude and importance, and I always wonder to myself, “is this really High Point?”
Strawberry cobbler, strawberry pie, strawberry muffins, strawberry bread…
Are you looking for something to spice up your home this spring, but tired of the same old designs at those big name stores? Look no further. Raleigh artist Amy Stone creates some really cute items for everyday use. Her company, Pony & Poppy, is an adorable shop featuring hand silk-screened tea towels, pillows, and napkins.
As the state’s second-largest city, Raleigh offers plenty of arts, sports, and leisure pursuits. But how much of that is frugal? Whether you’re after the sunshine or the shade, this sampling of fun activities will keep you busy without busting your budget.
Spring is the harbinger of daffodils, chirping birds, the never-ending battle between mankind and pollen, and of course, event season. The food community here in North Carolina, and the Triangle in particular, takes its cue from the lengthening days and bursts forth with a cornucopia of delicious get-togethers, fundraisers, and other culinary shindigs.
We North Carolinians live in a remarkable state. Not only do we enjoy stunning mountains, valleys, and beaches, but our communities are filled with remarkable people doing remarkable things. Now in its second year, Charlotte’s Carolina Art Soiree is an evening of local and regional art, food, drink, and live music, benefiting GBS/CIDP* research, education, and advocacy.
We’ve all been there: You want to try a new recipe that calls for some spice you don’t have. You go to the store, pick up say, garam masala, head home and get cooking. The meal rocks, and the garam masala goes to the back of the pantry where it will live until you need it again in a year or two.
