After the holiday season screeches to a halt and the ball drops on the New Year, it is not uncommon for the winter doldrums to set in. The first few months of the year can seem downright dull. Cue Woodloch Pines, an all-inclusive resort located in Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains that always finds reason to celebrate. Those looking for a much-needed, seasonal pick-me-up can find exactly that in Woodloch’s first-ever “Fully Charged and Delicious” Authors’ Weekend set for March 4-6, 2022. Celebrated authors and on-air personalities, Meaghan Murphy and Dana Pollack, will host a weekend jam-packed with fun that will not only help guests beat those winter blues but also leave them bursting at the seams with energy.
Meaghan Murphy serves as Editor-in-Chief of Woman’s Day and recently released her new book, Your Fully Charged Life, “a practical guide to bringing your best self to every moment, even when the pressures of daily life leave you feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, and wallowing in negative thoughts . . . this book reveals small changes in outlook and habits that yield big results, without ever sacrificing who you are.” Murphy is a frequent guest expert on the talk show circuit, making regular appearances on nationally-broadcast television shows such as Live with Kelly & Ryan and Today.
Accomplished pastry chef and entrepreneur, Dana Pollack, is the creative force behind Dana’s Bakery, famous for its “traditional French macaron with an authentic American twist.” Originally established in northern New Jersey in 2012, Dana’s Bakery has become one of the first-ever, exclusively online bakeries shipping to thousands of customers nationwide and offering a wide array of virtual baking classes — all with the goal of making delicious macarons accessible to everyone. In her new book, The Dana’s Bakery Cookbook, “Dana never fails to take classic, crave-able desserts to a whole new level― including her Mookies ™ (a macaron baked inside a cookie) that people line up to try. Now, you can make them―and 99 other incredible desserts from Dana’s collection―in the comfort of your own kitchen.”
Woodloch’s “Fully Charged and Delicious” Authors’ Weekend promises guests a well-deserved break from the norm as well as an opportunity to feel energized and revitalized, all while enjoying some delectable desserts. Featured activities include:
