Vermont Eats

This past Columbus Day weekend, I visited Vermont for the first time to see the fall foliage, alpine slide and of course, explore the local good eats. Vermont is famous for the wide variety of cheeses, maple syrup, Lake Champlain chocolates, craft breweries, and Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. Here are the food highlights from my trip – hope you enjoy!
 

In Stowe, VT, I had dinner at the Solstice restaurant at the Stowe Mountain Resort and ordered the cheese plate from the menu. I picked out three cheeses (all locally made in VT): Cabot Creamery‘s signature cheddar (cow’s milk), Lake’s Edge …

 

Calling All Sandwiches

eggplant panini from acefitness.org
The sandwich has been a luncheon trademark for as long as I can remember. Satisfying and nutritious, there are endless options waiting to be stuffed between a couple slices of bread for a mid-day meal. From club sandwiches to tea sandwiches to wraps and flat-breads; one of my most beloved has to be the Panini.

Although I’m not big into watching football, I do love the food aspect on game days. It’s not a party without the food, am I right? When I think of Super Bowl foods, so many come to mind, including dips, guacamole, nachos, wings, pizza, subs, deviled eggs, etc. — basically, fast finger foods. This weekend, *I will* be participating in the Super Bowl fun, especially since my home team, the New England Patriots, is playing.  I’ll be making pigs in a blanket and football-shaped whoopie pies – …

 

Not Your Average Pizza

When it comes to pizza, I think of red sauce, cheese, and savory toppings piled on a flat, circular-shaped dough.  I think of Pizzeria Regina, “a New York slice,” Chicago deep dish, and late night delivery.  The last thing I would imagine is a dessert pizza, but that is exactly what I ate for the first time recently.
Earlier this month, Boston welcomed its newest member to the restaurant and dessert scene, Max Brenner.  The international chain, otherwise known for “chocolate by the bald man,” started in Israel, and its chocolate culture concept arrived to the U.S. in 2006.  I have never visited any of …
