Super Easy Hot Cocoa Fudge

Hot Cocoa Fudge with Mini Marshmallows | Local Food Rocks

Instead of sharing a heathy-eating, clean-eating, detox, reset yourself post for the new year, this first post of 2019 is a recipe for fudge. It's probably the quickest, easiest fudge you'll ever make and it tastes like a little piece of sweet heaven.

Boozy Panettone French Toast

Boozy Panettone French Toast | Local Food Rocks

As an Italian American, you know it's not the "holidays" unless you have panettone, a sweet airy bread speckled with candied orange and/or raisins. Immediately after Thanksgiving up to New Years Day you need to enjoy this sweet delight on the regular. While it's good on its own, I say let's kick off the New Year with a slightly boozy Panettone French Toast.

Butternut Squash Coconut Curry

Local Food Rocks: Butternut Squash Coconut Curry

Well, it's official. Connecticut had its first snowfall. I'm not ready yet, but I guess I have no choice, so might as well roll with it.

I don't know about you, but cold weather always makes me crave comfort foods that come in a bowl like soup, stew, chili, and curry.  We just love having a hearty bowl of something for dinner as we sit by a roaring fire. This recipe marries a butternut squash into a creamy, vegan coconut curry perfect for fireside dinners on a cold winter weather evening.
