Caramel Apple Galette featuring The Fruit Wagon

You may recall my love affair with galettes since making one for Thirty Days of Food last year. Most of you are probably like, what in the world is a galette? Sounds fancy but honestly, it is all the deliciousness of pie without the hassle. Essentially, it’s a rustic pie that can be used with any filling sweet or savory. I decided to take some apples, top them with caramel, and tie them together in a gorgeous galette. Today, we…

Boston Cream Pie Cupcakes featuring Durrer Dairy

I honestly couldn’t live without dairy. At any given time you’re likely to find milk, several kinds of cheese, sour cream, and often heavy cream and cottage cheese in my fridge. Honestly it is a small scale crisis when we run out of milk! So I am always happy to feature one of my favorite ingredients I utilize daily during Thirty Days of Food. Ellen of Durrer Dairy joins us today to talk about their dairy farm in the Central…

Blueberry Crumble Bars featuring Kassie Grasmanis

I am always looking for quick and simple bar recipes to take to potlucks or other community meals. You know you live in the Midwest when you are asked to bring a salad and bars to a church potluck.

Kassie of Bowerman Blueberries joins us to discuss her multi-generation family blueberry farm!  KASSIE GRASMANIS Holland, Michigan When did…

Butter Pecan Cookies featuring Jennifer Wammack of Berdoll Pecans

I am always happy to feature nuts of any kind here on this blog, mostly because I grew up in Northern California where they are grown. I use nuts fairly regularly in my baking and my cooking and I miss living right where they are grown. I have featured several nut growers from California during Thirty Days of Food, but today I get to feature pecans from the great state of Texas! Jennifer Wammack of Berdoll Pecans joins us today…

Classic Peach Crisp (with How-to Video)

Summer has officially come to an end and while I love fall, I am not ready to let summer go yet. I am still soaking up every last ray of sunshine and every last dish coming out of my kitchen that screams summer. I made BLTs the other night and I also had a box of peaches that was just calling to be made into crisps!  If there is hands down one fruit I could eat every day for the…

Classic Shortbread Cookies

Every year, I make it my goal to give away homemade gifts to friends and family. Most years this consists of things like spice mixes, flavored butters, spicy jams, and other fun creations. Most years I love to make some traditional and classic Christmas treats to go along with the homemade gifts. This year, as I scanned Google and Pinterest for inspiration, I kept coming across shortbread. Shortbread is something that I’ve never really been exposed to, but I had recently…

Apple Cheddar Galette

I’ve always been intrigued by pairing cheddar cheese and apple together in a dessert. I had never made a galette before but I love the idea. It is perfectly rustic and super easy to put together. It is similar to a pie but without the intimidation factor. So if you aren’t too sure about making a pie, try this galette!  This galette was perfection. It wasn’t too sweet and contrasted by the sharpness of the cheddar. The cheddar pie crust…

Chocolate Mousse Crepes featuring Jenni of Flood Brothers Farm

Several years ago, I frequented a restaurant in Chico, CA called the Kramore Inn. It specialized in crepes and other pasta dishes. But they served this dessert of chocolate mousse crepes that was out of this world. I decided to make some crepes and re-create this dessert for the feature of another lovely dairy woman. Today we’ve got Jenni of Flood Brothers Farm!  DAIRY: JENNI OF FLOOD BROTHERS FARM Maine When did you start farming? What brought you into farming?…

Cinnamon Maple Bacon Waffle Cookies featuring Hillcrest Family Farms

I met Brad of Hillcrest Family Farms during an American Soybean Association event earlier this year. Brad and his wife Nicole operate a family farm where they produce corn, soybeans, wheat, and alfalfa. They also own and operate a dairy in addition to their farming operation. Maple syrup began for Brad and his family as a hobby but now has evolved into a family tradition. I was in awe at Brad’s posts on social media sharing about how they have to cook…
