Cheesy Pull-Apart Garlic Bread

April is one of those months when you desperately want to exchange winter clothes and comfort foods for lighter options, but some days remain too chilly for that to be a reality. I recently made this recipe for cheesy, pull-apart cheddar garlic bread which would pair well with either a hearty soup or a lighter […]

The Best Breakfast Sandwich Starts with the Best Cheese!

Breakfast sandwiches are perfect for any meal of the day. I’ll gladly have one for breakfast, lunch or dinner. They are so easy to make, especially if you pre-cook the bacon and keep it on hand. Plus, using Conebella Farm Cheese such as the rich and creamy Colby cheese takes this sandwich to the next […]

Pizza

Thick Crust Pizza with Fresh Mozzarella

Since I have family coming in for the holidays, I’m looking for easy recipes to make while they are here. Normally I wouldn’t consider homemade pizza to be “easy,” but this recipe is pretty easy! The dough should be started either the morning or night before you need it. Since it’s thick crust pizza, you […]

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 […]

We paired these ingredients with our […]

This recipe is so quick to make and so delicious! I love to make it for company since it’s easy to put together ahead of time. It’s also great for […]

Cheese-Curd-Salad

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 […]
