One of my favorite places is...

Pickity Place, located near Mason, NH. Lunch there features delectable food make with fresh herbs from the herb garden. My daughter, Jen, and I have lunched there several times.

On the property is Grandmother's Cottage, a red Cape Cod cottage that was featured in the 1948 Golden Books edition of Little Red Riding Hood by Elizabeth Orton Jones. Grandmother's bedroom is full of Little Red Riding Hood memorabilia. The grounds of Pickity Place are a photographer's dream - full of building, nooks and crannies, and of course the herb garden itself.
Just thinking of the great food served there makes me hungry. On Amazon I found a cookbook Country Herb Cooking: Four Seasons of Recipes from Pickity Place by Judy Walter that I promptly ordered. Can't wait for it to get here. Here are samples of what's served.

If you're in the New England area, think about visiting this jewel of a place. I'm not connected to Pickity Place in any way, just wanted to share one of my favorite places.

See ya later...


  1. So nice to meet you Sondra! How fun to visit you and find a post on New Hampshire! I know of Pickity Place, but have yet to go there. I have heard wonderful things about it and am happy to know it is a favorite of yours!
    Love hearing that you have NE connections and that your children live here. I do miss the Rockies though, so please give my love to Colorado!
    Merry Christmas to you and yours!

    p.s. thank you so much for leaving your "calling card"!
