Mass Appeal and Fire Island

Hello all! Things have been nuts so far this summer (along with the nasty humid weather we’ve been having). So here’s what’s been going on:

I was on TV! Yup! Earlier this month, I was on Mass Appeal with my father promoting Berkshire Blue Cheese. It was nerve-wracking, but a lot of fun. Six minutes sure flies by. I did the cooking segment (granted all I did was just give a suggestion for a great quick and easy treat using the cheese).

You can read the whole article here as well as watch the video. (For some reason, it’s not letting me post the video directly to my blog.) Hopefully we’ll be able to come back and chat more! And if you have a recipe, send them in. The winner will get a whole wheel of blue!  Below is a photo I took from the set of the food prop I made.

Fig jam and melted Berkshire blue on Mass Appeal

It tastes just as good as it looks. I was very proud of how it came out. So easy. Cut a piece of baguette, slice up some Berkshire Blue, pop it in a 400 degree F oven and let melt to desired consistency, about 5-8 minutes. Pull out of the oven, add some fig/any type of jam you like or honey and BAM. An easy finger food.

I’ve also been having a great time at the green markets. There’s so much now since it was a cold spring. I made an amazing blueberry summer cake:


And then I shucked some fresh peas:


It’s been great using things that are in season. Everything just tastes the way it should. I’m looking forward to when stone fruit and heirloom tomatoes come in. I’m also looking forward to my Modern Sprout planter comes in. I’ll be able to grow some herbs hydroponically.

Dr. Awesome and I are headed to fire island this week. I’m bringing my camera with me to document the amazing meals we’ll be cooking. It’s going to be a rough time 😉
