Local Produce Salad with Cheese Curds

In summer, fresh produce makes all the difference. I’ll never forget the first time I grew my own lettuce – the flavor of homegrown lettuce is incredible! While I don’t currently have the property to be able to grow my own lettuce, I like to buy it from local farms. Some of my favorite kinds […]

Easy Homemade Coffee Ice Cream

One of my favorite things in summer is a cup of iced coffee in the afternoon. I recently learned the art of making ice cream at home too. So it wasn’t long until I figured out that the two can be combined into one delicious treat.   I’m pretty particular about my coffee and was […]

Melted Cheddar Baked Potatoes

There are few things more tasty than melted cheese and crispy potatoes. Conebella Farm’s Sharp Cheddar won first prize and best in show at the Pennsylvania Farm Show earlier this year, and there’s no debate that this cheddar is truly delicious in any form, but melted on potatoes is an absolutely delicious way to enjoy […]

granola with bleberries, strawberries and Greek yogurt

Crunchy Maple Pecan Granola

I used to always have a batch of freshly baked Maple Pecan Granola on hand. Always. I ate it every morning for breakfast with milk or yogurt, and often as snacks with yogurt and fresh fruit. Then life got in the way and I stopped baking granola as often. I resorted to buying granola, which […]

Welsh Rarebit on sliced baguette with Conebella cheese and Einstock Porter

Welsh Rarebit with Sharp Cheddar

Until recently, I was convinced that the dish “Welsh Rarebit” was actually called “Welsh Rabbit.” My mom used to make this as the ultimate comfort food on nights my dad had to travel or work late. I did some research, and discovered that the true recipe calls for beer such as a porter or stout […]

Build a Holiday Cheese Plate

A cheese plate is just about the simplest yet most elegant appetizer you can bring to a gathering this holiday season.  Whether it’s for Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s or anything in between, a cheese plate is a delicious and easy option.

Raspberry-Frozen-Yogurt-Popsicles-1000

Raspberry Frozen Yogurt Popsicles

There’s something so refreshing about cold, sweet treats in summertime. I remember eating many popsicles, freeze pops, Italian ice and my favorite, homemade popsicles, as a child. I’m not sure if it was the satisfaction of having helped out that made it taste so much better, but getting kids involved in food preparation definitely piques […]

The snow is falling today, and while farmers don’t get snow days off by any stretch, it’s always nice to warm up with a hot drink. At Conebella Farm, Don and Pam will be working hard today to make sure the cows are happy, hydrated and well-fed to make that delicious farm fresh milk you […]

Pinwheels-1 2

Roasted Red Pepper & Herb Pinwheels

Making a recipe that appeals to all generations is often a challenge. I think I might have the only two-year-old who doesn’t love pizza, but I may have found a compromise! This recipe for roasted red pepper & herb pinwheels was a hit with him, and he affectionately called them “pizza cookies.” Last year, a […]
