Skipper's Landing a Sodus Bay Staple

This week I wanted to highlight a Sodus Bay staple. Skipper’s Landing has been owned and run by the Dean family since 1984. For over 30 years the business has been a family affair. You can walk in on any given day and see Eric behind the bar and Lisa escorting guests to their bay view dinner table, among other Dean family members in and out of the kitchen. Skipper’s has a little bit of everything for the perfect day on the water. First off, you can come by water or by land. Across the street from the restaurant is a spacious parking lot on a very low traffic road.  Skipper’s also has its’ own set of docks for boats...

Brand Feature: Nancy from Good Cheer Farm Bakes

Flowers have a funny way of bringing people together. Earlier this year while checking the flower stand, I noticed a little baggie that someone had left on the stand. When I opened it up there were two molasses cookies packaged in there, with a note from Nancy from Good Cheer Farm, who had her own farm in Marion, NY. I am not a huge molasses cookie fan, but those were by far the best I have ever had! I was hooked to say the least. After a few additional visits to the flower stand, Nancy and I decided that her products and baked goods would be a great addition to the flowers on the stand. Now, each weekend you can...
