Vermont Season Pass Deals

We have finally had our first hard frost and we woke up to snow in the higher elevations this morning! The foliage has been spectacular this fall, and as Stowe moves past peak it is time to start thinking SNOW and SKIING. There are still a few weeks left to take advantage of great deals on season passes and discount cards to area resorts and touring centers. 

Stowe Mountain Resort offers early season discounts on the traditional Gold and Silver passes but there are other cost saving options available as well. If you live or work in the area you may be eligible for The County Pass or the Stowe Area Association Pass. College Students, Young Adults and Seniors all are eligible for discount season passes and many of then also offer additional savings if purchased before 11/6/2016; so check out Stowe Mountain Resorts Pass Site for details.

Maybe you prefer one of Vermont's other fantastic resorts; or want to ski several different mountains this winter check out the  Ski Vermont website for discounts around the state. Want to leave the state this winter, ready to try skiing out West? You still don't need to pay rack rate, check out Snow.com for great deals on multi-resort passes in Colorado, Utah and others.

However you pay to play on the slopes or trails, just make sure you get out and enjoy this winter!

 

Thanksgiving Pecan Pie

One of my favorite dishes at Thanksgiving is Pecan Pie. This is a fantastic recipe. If you want to add a tasty surprise, just add a few chocolate chips and watch everyone’s eyes light up!

Happy Thanksgiving. Jeff 

 
YIELD - 1 Pie - you decided how many servings ;-)
 

INGREDIENTS

Pastry dough - with enough other cooking going on, feel free to use good quality store bought.

3/4 stick unsalted butter

1 1/4 cups packed light brown sugar

3/4 cup light corn syrup

2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 large eggs

2 cups pecan halves (1/2 pound)

Accompaniment: whipped cream or vanilla ice cream


PREPARATION

Preheat oven to 350°F with a baking sheet on middle rack.

Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface with a lightly floured rolling pin into a 12-inch round and fit into a 9-inch pie plate. Trim edge, leaving a 1/2-inch overhang. Fold overhang under and lightly press against rim of pie plate, then crimp decoratively. Lightly prick bottom all over with a fork. Chill until firm, at least 30 minutes (or freeze 10 minutes).

Meanwhile, melt butter in a small heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add brown sugar, whisking until smooth. Remove from heat and whisk in corn syrup, vanilla, zest, and salt. Lightly beat eggs in a medium bowl, then whisk in corn syrup mixture.

Put pecans in pie shell and pour corn syrup mixture evenly over them. Bake on hot baking sheet until filling is set, 50 minutes to 1 hour. Cool completely.

***To save time on Thanksgiving, pie can be baked 1 day ahead and chilled. Bring to room temperature before serving.

Homes are about people, and that’s what Coldwell Banker is all about as well.

There’s a recurring theme in real estate from the media and our competitors about how easily replaceable real estate agents are, so it is with great pride that we introduce to you our newest advertising campaign. This is an ad that speaks to Coldwell Banker's love and dedication to people and home since 1906, a commercial that speaks to our agents’ ability to “read the situation” and show the unmistakable, irreplaceable power of human touch.

Here is our new commercial that we call “Hoops” that is airing this year during the tournament.
