Local Lunch: Mackenzie Creamery Sweet Fire Chevre

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).

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 cheese bigger and better. I had to think far outside […]

Last Sunday, even though it was raining, I headed to our local farmer’s market to pick up a few things.

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.

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 role in a grilled cheese sandwich. I came across two […]

Sunday, instead of creating a new Sunday grilled cheese sandwich (sorry), I traveled to where the wonderful ingredient known as Goat Cheese is made: Mackenzie Creamery.

"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 […]

Because of this basket, one can try various cheeses without truly breaking the bank. […]
