Rainbow Grilled Cheese
Whenever the weatherman predicts snow, you can almost hear the collective cries of joy from children, and the sighs of their parents who know they’re going to have stir crazy kids at home. Somehow the initial excitement always seems to wear off way too early in the day, leaving the rest of the day for them to be enterained-especiallly 2 toddlers.
Before your kids drives you crazy, here is one of our favorite thing do at home on a snow day, ESPECIALLY after sled riding or igloo building fun.
Cheddar-Apple Hand Pies
It’s that time of year when the cold weather finally sets in and winter is in full swing. You adorn your pet in a cute flannel sweater, and we go on the hunt for the perfect winter cocktail! We're always striving to find a yummy buddy for your seasonal concoction and figured everyone could use a good drink after the Holiday season. And in our opinion, cheese is the perfect drinking companion.
We've also teamed up with our friends at WA_Meadwerks for something extra special!

Fall is in full swing and Pumpkin everything is the star of season. However, we wanted to showcase another delicious squash -BUTTERNUT! The combination of the sweet, nutty taste and silky-smooth buttery D’ffinois Brie will be the talk of everyone at the party.
DUBTOBERFEST CHEESE SAUCE and GERMAN PRETZELS
I believe that every person who loves to bake or cook needs to have a good biscuit recipe. Biscuits are so simple, yet the slightest misstep in adding the proper amount of a particular ingredient or using a less than effective technique can result in crummy biscuits. I've spent hours in the kitchen perfecting my biscuit recipe. They are flakey and soft. They are perfect for sandwiches or served simply with a seasonal jam or preserves.
porter house Steak with Garlic and Herbed Butter
After spending so much time in professional kitchens and even cooking a ton at home, I feel that I’ve used just about every cooking technique out there. Whether it’s sous vide, proofing, braising, smoking... I’ve done a lot. Well, that was true until today day. Enter German Pretzel Making.
Pretzels are no different than other yeast rising dough. It requires some kneading, which is easy to do with a KitchenAid stand mixer and the hook attachment; you’ll save lots of time. After the dough rises and you roll it and form it. You then you par-boil the pretzels in a hot water/ baking soda solution. By doing this, it helps elevate the PH level in the dough, gelatinizing the crust and making it brown after baking. It’s weird I know, but essential to getting some delicious golden brown soft pretzels!
Oktoberfest will be in full force starting this weekend so what would pretzels be with out some sort of G beer and cheese sauce? It’s incredibly easy to make a. I used a combination of both sharp and mild cheddar cheeses and it was a super delicious blend, but feel free to experiment. The addtion of the DUBTOBERFEST beer (or any DUBCO beer) gives a great finish and texture to the cheese sauce!
Pumpkin Mac & Cheese
Perfecting that steak can be a bit tricky.
Sometimes that sear is just perfect but the inside is nowhere to be cooked. So by the time the inside is cooked, your crusty exterior is basically, well, dead at this point.
So here it is – that juicy, crisp steak cooked just the way you want it, topped with a garlic compound butter that is off. the. hook.
You can put that butter on anything and everything – dinner rolls, toast, chicken or seafood. You name it. You can also prep the butter ahead of time and freeze as needed.
I mean, you never know if there’s going to be a butter shortage so let’s just play it on the safe side.
Porcini,Sage and Truffle Cheddar Soup
Here's a mac and cheese that veers off the beaten path and is PERFECT for Fall! Pumpkin adds moisture and an irresistibly earthy flavor to this easy casserole recipe.
Crème Fraîche Peach and Berry Pie
Lovers of truffles rejoice! The earthy aromas of the rare and delectable fungi in this exceptional flavored cheddar. Grafton uses both fresh truffles and truffle oil to infuse this mild cheese throughout with that telltale truffle quality.
Sweet and buttery flavors provide the anchor for the musky, earthy, sensual aromas of truffle that pervade this cheese. With a semi-firm texture that is both pliant and creamy, this is a cheese to satisfy nearly any mood or application.
Porcinis have a deeper, woodsier taste than some other mushrooms. If you can't find them fresh, dried work just as well - just use half as many dried and soak them in water to rehydrate.
Lemon Ricotta Cake
This is a great alternative to regular berry pie, filled with a rich tangy custard and tart baked summer fruit. It’s also a great way to use up fresh peaches that are ripening too fast. The berries add a hint of tart to the sweet peaches. Easy to make and looks great.

Summer Tomato Tart
There’s no mistaking that we are living in an IPA world. Brewers are now pushing the envelope in different ways. It seems only natural to continue to innovate within styles that are so popular. Brutal, made by our friends at The Brewers Collective is perfect example! An IPA,brut made with Azacca, Citra, Belma and Cascade Hops. Brewed in collaboration with John Palmer and Long Island Beer and Malt Enthusiasts
We wanted to take the classic Penne with Vodka sauce and change things up. For a new spin on classic vodka sauce, we’re substituting a Brut,IPA. This recipe is easy to make and produces a delicious new take on a classic. A total crowd pleaser.
A tomato tart, layered with garlic, fresh herbs and cheese is a perfect way to use what the garden gave you or to showcase those beautiful heirlooms you picked up at the farmers market!
