Eat Your Heart Out

Turkey town at Winslows

Winslow's, a quaint restaurant nestled on route 9 between Saratoga and Queensbury, is well known in the area for their take on the American turkey dinner. Knowing this, of course I made a point to get out there and give it a go.

First I chose to try the famous turkey and rice soup. The soup was actually really good, not too robust in flavor but just enough to make the soup flavorful and enjoyable. I did find myself adding more salt to the soup, so maybe it could have used a little more sodium to kick it up a notch.

My mom and I decided to share Winslow's most known-for dish, the turkey dinner. After looking around and watching diners struggle to finish their portions, sharing was definitely the right choice. The meal came along with stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce.

The main focus being the turkey, it was pretty darn good. I know how often the anticipation is on Thanksgiving to taste moist and juicy turkey but often it gets dry or bland. Well I must say, Winslow's does not have this problem. The turkey was cooked to perfection and it was made very clear why they are already getting booked up for Thanksgiving 2012.

My suggestion to Winslow's would be to keep doing what they're doing, because it's obviously working for them. If you're ever in the mood for a traditional, stick to your bones meal like a Thanksgiving dinner, I would absolutely suggest going to Winslow's. You'll come out 5 pounds heavier and satisfied for sure.

Ashley Dingeman

My name is Ashley Dingeman and I am in love with food. A recent SUNY Geneseo graduate and Saratoga Springs native, it has always been a dream of mine to have the opportunity to do the two things I do best: eat & write. Just like in a Disney movie, I guess dreams really do come true.

First off, can I just say that my passion for food goes way beyond simply loving to eat. For some, eating is eating and food is food, but to me, it’s so much more. Every element of the food experience, I love.

Perhaps the profound effects of growing up in an Italian family have rubbed off on me. If there was one thing I learned in the process, it was that food brings people together, and where there’s food, there’s family. No, I didn’t grow up in The Olive Garden, but I did grow up privileged to have an incredible Grandmother, and the best cook I’ve ever known. To this day no one will ever be able to replicate her Sunday “gravy”, even though all grandchildren have come close (and some closer than others [me]). It was she who inspired me to begin cooking in the first place, and it is in her honor that I continue on in hopes of inspiring others the same way.

So I invite you now to revel in my words, devour my descriptions, fantasize over my photographs, and maybe just maybe, you’ll be move enough to go out and try something for yourself. Project “Eat Your Heart Out” starts now.
