Green Monster Bacon, Egg and Cheese Sandwich

Green Monster Bacon Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sandwich | Local Food Rocks

Most Saturdays you'll find us making some kind of bacon and egg breakfast with all the fixings, followed by savoring multiple cups of coffee while sitting on the sofa perusing the latest news, or in my case, aimlessly scrolling through Instagram. This baseball-themed version of green eggs and ham is weekend breakfast perfection - spinach pesto eggs, crisp bacon, and tangy smashed avocado on a pretzel bun.

Spicy Blueberry, Corn, and Avocado Salsa

Spicy blueberry, corn and avocado salsa | Local Food Rocks

This is not your average salsa. Packed with fresh blueberries, corn, avocado, tomato, jalapeno, cilantro, and lime, it's all about a little sweet with a little heat. It's easy to make, ready in about 10 minutes, and tastes great even without tortilla chips.

La Calle: Venezuelan Eats + American Dreams

Local Food Rocks visits La Calle in Norwalk, CT

I like a good human interest story. This is as much a restaurant review as it is a story of an American dream. A person comes to this country with nothing, and through hard work and determination is able to build something for himself and his family.
