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 […]

Mozzarella_Chimichurri_Salad

Mozzarella Salad With Chunky Garlic-Herb Dressing

Cheese makes an excellent topping for salads. A generous handful of grated sharp cheddar, squeaky cheese curds, or cubed Conebella Farm Italian Colby amplifies your salad, making it more filling and more flavorful. In this particular salad, cheese takes a starring role. Creamy mozzarella pairs perfectly with the complex, tangy flavors of this chimichurri-inspired salad. […]

Tiramisu Hot Cocoa

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 […]

Cheddar Cauliflower Soup with Shallots and Thyme

It’s a rainy day as I write this. A perfect day to make a soup that I have been meaning to try for quite some time: a cheddar cauliflower soup. For my husband’s sake, I’ve been referring to it as a “cheddar” soup, rather than a “cheddar cauliflower” soup, but he hung out with me […]

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 […]

Cheddar, Buttermilk & Herb Biscuits

Everybody has their dish that they are looking forward to on Thanksgiving. The sweet potatoes. The pumpkin pie. The cranberry sauce. Oh, yeah, and the turkey! For me, it is usually the bread and rolls. Whenever we would go to my maternal grandparents’, we would gather around the table, with candle light flickering. We would […]

Spinach Mozzarella Galette

Spinach, Artichoke and Mozzarella Pie

When I mention that I love to cook, the next question is usually, “what do you like to cook?” It’s a good question that has sometimes led to a rapid recipe exchange but more often to painfully awkward moments while I strain to come up with some response. I didn’t grow up with a strong […]

Chicken-Bacon-Cheddar-Sandwich

Chicken, Bacon & Cheddar Sandwich

Ready or not, fall schedules are here with all of the busyness this brings to our weeknight meal planing. At this time of year I find that even my well-intentioned meal plans fall by the wayside if I can get away with serving leftovers for dinner a night or two in a row. And then […]

Yogurt

Greek Yogurt with Blueberries & Curry-Agave Nectar

A breakfast of fruit and yogurt often brings back memories of summer 2009 for me. Friends and I had just watched Food, Inc., which had served as a wakeup call to avoid processed foods and support local farmers. Newly energized to support local food producers, a friend and I joined a CSA. Several friends started making […]

Caprese_Salad_stick

Tomato Mozzarella Salad on a Stick

Summer is the season for tomatoes that actually taste like tomatoes. When I was in middle school, a friend and I used to enjoy homegrown tomatoes by the slice, with just a little salt on them to bring out those rich flavors. A tomato mozzarella (caprese) salad makes good use of all that fresh tomato […]
