How To Build A Perfect Cheese Plate

Give me some crackers, charcuterie, and cheese and I'm a happy person. I may (or may not) stand at the kitchen counter just shoving chunks of cheese into my mouth as I haphazardly grab crackers out of the box. Don't judge.

However, I can class it up too, especially for guests. In fact, I do delight in making simple yet beautifully balanced cheese platters. A platter of cheese and crackers with assorted accouterments are the perfect way to get things started whether it's a holiday party or casual get-together.

Lemon Curd Grilled Chicken Skewers

Is it strange that when I saw the jar of The English Provender Co. Lemon Curd in my Degustabox this month, I immediately wanted to use it in a savory recipe rather than in something sweet? Dessert would be too easy.  Maybe I was unconsciously looking for a creative challenge. Whatever the reason, it gave delicious life to "boring old chicken."

Apple Cider Bourbon Spritzer

There is no denying it, our descent into Fall is slowly happening. It's so hard to let go of summer, but I do find myself looking forward to the sights, smells, and tastes of Fall. Not just on my plate, but even in my cocktail glass, I'm now seeking those classic New England flavors like cinnamon and apple. This Apple Cider Bourbon Spritzer is the perfect drink bridging the lighter cocktails of summer with the warming flavors of Fall.

TerraSole Is An Italian Trattoria In The Heart of Ridgefield

TerraSole on Big Shop Lane in Ridgefield isn't new. In fact, it's been there for quite a while. For no particular reason, we just kept overlooking it. Until now. And I am so glad we finally sat down to a meal here.

Grilled Stuffed Poblano Peppers

One of the first posts I wrote on Local Food Rocks way back in September 2008 was about making grilled stuffed poblano peppers. This year I decided to not only grow my own poblano peppers but to revisit my original recipe.
