  • The Cheddar Peasant Boule that Lighter and Local baked is the kind of bread that will inspire you to do a little more baking at home because it is a simple recipe and yields a delicious result. The easy to make bread has a soft, light crumb and a little spiral of cheddar cheese baked into it for flavor. It makes great sandwiches, toast and is also tasty when served plain, or alongside a bowl of soup. Once you have the hang of the basics of this recipe, you’ll find yourself putting twists on it with different cheeses and fillings, and baking bread from scratch just a bit more often.
  • Beantown Baker‘s Football Whoopie Pies are the perfect food for a Super Bowl party. These whoopie pies feature soft chocolate cookies packed with a delicious filling, and they’re garnished with a little football-inspired “lace” decoration on top. The filling consists of homemade marshmallow frosting – a nice contrast to the chocolate cake – and a generous drizzle of salted caramel sauce. The pies are sturdy and travel very well, so you can easily transport them to an off-site party if you’re going to be watching the Big Game with friends and family.
  • I’ve seen waffle irons used for more than just making waffles before, but it is always good to see these appliances do a little multi-tasking. I’ve used them to make french toast, for instance, and Foodie with Family made Waffle Iron Han and Cheese Paninis. These sandwiches prove that you don’t need a special panini maker to make some delicious hot, toasted sandwiches. Start with soft, but sturdy, bread and load your sandwich up with the fillings of your choice. This sandwich uses ham, provolone cheese, arugula and sweet onion. Close the waffle iron firmly and in a few minutes you’ll be ready to eat.
  • Gourmand in the Kitchen‘s Honey Coconut Macaroons with Chocolate Sauce are more elegant than most of the coconut macaroons you’ll see offered for sale behind deli counters. These are small, truffle-like treats that are lightly sweet and have a good coconut flavor. They’re slightly crisp on the outside and manage to have a very light interior. The chocolate dipping sauce is also made with coconut milk and serves as a nice contrast to the light macarons
