Fresh-Mozarella

Make a Fresh Mozzarella Board

After months of eating mediocre produce, I always look forward to eating fresh, homegrown tomatoes, greens and herbs. They pair so well with locally made cheeses like the ones available from Conebella Farm. Fresh Mozzarella and Cheese Curds are simple and versatile cheeses, perfect to have with fresh produce, good bread and dipping oil.   […]

Raclette

Have a “Raclette” Party with Our Cheese!

In the alps, melted cheese takes center stage on many dishes: fondue, several variations on gratin potatoes and my personal favorite: raclette. The literal translation of “raclette” comes from the French verb meaning “to scrape.” In a restaurant, half of a wheel of cheese will be melted and then scraped onto baked potatoes, similar to […]

Kale-Salad

Crunchy Kale Salad with Garlic & Chive Cheddar

A few weeks ago I decided to make plans to eat at least one large serving of salad every day, no matter what. I know I need to eat more vegetables, but unless I actually make a plan, I’m likely to fall into old habits of eating food that’s a little easier to prepare. Kale […]

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 […]
