Easter candy? No problem!

by Doreen Vigilante in Candy

I have always been a “Life is short, eat dessert first” kind of gal. For as long as I can remember, I would jump right to the dessert menu when eating out. At family gatherings, I would salivate over the plentiful and elaborate dessert offerings. Sure, I LOVE food, but it’s the sweet things in life I crave.
            I guess my “foodie” start came early in life. As a kid growing up in New Jersey, we… read more

But regardless of the weather, Irish cheese is a natural for this time of year.
The Irish people have a long and rich history in the production of dairy products. The land in Ireland is very… read more

Taking the Classic PB&J to New Levels

by Charlotte Myer in Candy, News & Events, Wine & Beer, Cheese, Specialty Grocery

When I was a kid, I was such a picky eater that I wouldn’t even touch my sandwich unless it was cut into the proper shape.  Yes, you read that correctly.  Squares, rectangles, or triangles, my preferences changed daily and I guess it was all my poor mother could do to get me to eat to just indulge this eccentricity and hope that I turned out at least somewhat normal. Now that I’m old enough to be embarrassed by this, I’ve… read more
