Local Lunch: Mackenzie Creamery Sweet Fire Chèvre

Local Lunch: Mackenzie Creamery Sweet Fire Chèvre

Hopefully you enjoyed the Series, Free Lunch, in which I highlighted cheeses I received from both Kerrygold (Blarney Castle & Dubliner) and Cabot (Chipotle & Private Stock Cheddar). I thoroughly enjoyed researching the various cheeses and of course tasting them. Each cheese had its own […]

Butternut Squash & Pumpkin Bread Grilled Cheese

Butternut Squash & Pumpkin Bread Grilled Cheese

I have only created one Thanksgiving grilled cheese sandwich in the three plus years of this blog. I wanted to change that this year. After my 2009 creation, Pumpkin Pie Grilled Cheese, I had a lot to live up to. I had to make this grilled […]

Mackenzie Creamery’s Toasted Pumpkin Chevre

Mackenzie Creamery’s Toasted Pumpkin Chevre

Last Sunday, even though it was raining, I headed to our local farmer’s market to pick up a few things. I purchased some Ohio City Pasta for my father, an Apple Pie from Gray House Pies (yum!) for myself and lastly, a package of Toasted Pumpkin Chevre from Mackenzie Creamery. The previous week, I had seen a different cheese, a tomato kind, that was delicious. However, this week they did not have the tomato chevre and instead had the Toasted Pumpkin, which they were sampling with graham crackers.

Mackenzie Creamery

As you will remember, back in October, 2009, I traveled to the home of Mackenzie Creamery. This was at a time when the Creamery was just beginning and growing. It was at a time when Mackenzie was beginning to gain some respect and rewards. Fast forward to now, two years later, and it is obvious that Mrs. Jean Mackenzie made the right choice to follow her dream and make amazing chevre/goat cheese. The sky is the limit. (more…)

Russ Parsons & SippitySup’s Mushroom Quesadilla

The minute I stumbled on SippitySup’s Say Cheese-Creative Quesadillas Have Arrived entry (& Russ Parsons’ article), I knew that this would be my next “grilled cheese” to try. I had already established that quesadillas are in fact grilled cheese sandwiches so I was free to […]

Broccoli & Cauliflower Grilled Cheese

Broccoli & Cauliflower Grilled Cheese

Yesterday, I googled broccoli cauliflower puree, hoping to find great inspiration for the evening’s grilled cheese. However, the 3rd result was for the exact opposite: Broccoli and Cauliflower Puree :: 6–9 Months – Baby Recipes…. I never thought that a couple of the search results would be for baby food! I did not want to make dinner for my nephew, so I avoided all of those links. (more…)

Mackenzie Creamery Goat Cheese Grilled Cheese

Mackenzie Creamery Goat Cheese Grilled Cheese

This week, I decided to search the Internet and my Grilled Cheese Book for recipes that included goat cheese instead of creating my own. I have been nibbling at this cheese ever since I bought it but had not yet used it in a starring […]

Recently, I have noticed Mackenzie Creamery Goat Cheese located within Mustard Seed Market and was intrigued. It definitely looked […]

“Kicked Up” Goat Cheese Grilled Cheese

“Kicked Up” Goat Cheese Grilled Cheese

Yes, I have been gone for awhile. Yes, I have missed you. (Have you missed me?) Yes, I am back. Yes, this grilled cheese was very yummy! I would go into where I have been (Jewish holidays, birthdays, etc.), but I don’t want to bore you. Plus, I don’t think anyone came here to read about my life story, you just want to know about this great grilled cheese, featuring “kicked up” Goat Cheese. Right? Right. (more…)

In my quest to learn everything there is to know about cheese, Saturday evening, I traveled to Whole Foods’ cheese department. There, located in a little basket, are remnants of random cheeses ranging in price from very inexpensive to somewhat inexpensive. Because of this basket, […]
