Labneh

What’s summer without eating food outside with friends? The recipe for this month is simple, delicious, and customizable. A perfect way to take advantage of summer harvest’s fresh rewards. The main component of this dish is Labneh, a mediterranean soft cheese, much like ricotta, and is extremely versatile. It can be used in mezze platters like this, or can even be used in sweet dishes like olive oil cake. It binds the other elements together into a fantastic party (or really anytime) dish.

Many Italian recipes use a mix of ground beef and pork and so do Swedish recipes. Sometimes veal is also included, and each meat makes up a third…

Mulled Hot Apple Cider

This is a recipe that you can really make your own. You can add more of one thing and less of others, improvise ingredients, and even swap out the cider for wine. There isn’t one “right” way to make it. Vary the spices depending on personal preferences and how spicy you want it to be.
