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 […]

Margherita Pizza: A Tribute to Italy’s Queen & Flag

Pizza is one food that just about everyone can agree on loving from an early age. Even my two-year-old loves pizza night. The love of pizza not only transcends generations, it spans the centuries. Forms of pizza have been a beloved food since ancient times. Records show flat breads topped with vegetables, herbs and cheeses […]

Poutine with Homemade Oven Fries

If you’re familiar with the squeaky deliciousness of cheese curds, then you may have also had them served in one or two classic ways. You may have had them deep fried (maybe at home, or maybe at a state fair). Or, you may have had them in poutine, a dish that originated in Quebec and […]

Cheddar-Potato-Pie

Spinach Cheddar Potato Pie

“My England money.” That’s what my five-year-old niece calls the handful of pence my husband and I brought back for her from a trip across the pond last month. She loves seeing the images of the queen on the coins and sorting the coins by size. I will think of my niece’s charming phrase whenever I […]

Chimichangas with Jalapeño Cheddar and Smoked Colby

In the first year after I got married, I had to build up a recipe collection. I had cooked now and then during high school, and had somehow managed to feed myself when I moved into my first apartment after college. (Mainly, I existed on omelets.) But daily meal prep for two people? This was […]

Corn-Dip-1

Whoa, Nelly! This Corn Dip is Amazing.

Imagine a summer supper in southeast Pennsylvania. The smell of fresh-cut hay wafts up to the screened-in porch. Light begins to fade into a hazy orange. Fireflies pulse. What’s a night like this like without corn on the cob? Would the meal be the same without this fresh Pennsylvania delicacy… so sweet, buttery and crisp? What […]

Herb-Chicken

Easy Cheesy Flavorful Chicken

It’s not just your imagination. Studies have shown that time really does feel like it is flying by as we get older. Some have thought that this is because, when we’re kids, our hearts beat more quickly, and this functions as a natural timekeeper, making it feel like more time has passed. Or that we’re receiving […]

Sugar-Plum-Chutney

Smoked Colby with Sugar Plum Chutney

It’s been a strange, difficult harvest for local farmers this year. A sudden April freeze punctuated an otherwise mild winter and knocked out many local cherries and apricots. But plums survived. And after pairing this Sugar Plum Chutney with Conebella’s Smoked Colby, I sure am glad. It had been a while since I’d tasted Conebella Farm Smoked […]

Vidalia-sandwich

Strawberry-Vidalia Grilled Turkey & Cheese for Summer

With some recipes, you take one look at the words on the page and know you’re in for a treat. Anything with cheddar and bacon: bound to be delicious. Or tomatoes and basil. Or caramelized onions and ham. And the more you experiment, the more you get to know the combinations that always succeed. But a […]
