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.

Lemon Ricotta Cheesecake with Almond Cookie Crust

Slice of Lemon Ricotta Cheesecake with Almond Cookie Crust | Local Food Rocks

Forget the cream cheese. If you want a lighter, fluffier cheesecake, pick up the ricotta cheese instead. Blending traditional Italian flavors of lemon and almond atop a cookie base, this dessert is a sweet way to cap off an Easter feast without weighing you down.
