I am so excited to introduce you to a fellow Wisconsin (by way of Edmonton) blogger today! I found out about her from a Wisconsin blogger site – Wisconsin Whisk – and I am so glad I did! Carissa is the Domestic Dreamboat responsible for Domestic Dreamboat – A Tale of Modern Housewifery (check out her site to find out how she got that nickname). She is also a stay-at-home-mom and nutritionist. No, it’s not Nutritionists’ Day again – you have to wait for March 9th for that one! And no, not Canada Day either. Buuuuut….it is Moldy Cheese Day and she has a great salad recipe I tried with gorgonzola (cuz goat cheese just isn’t moldy enough for how I roll 😉 ) and I can’t wait to tell you about it!
In addition to tasty healthy recipes, she also blogs about living life, and crafts. Check out her post about How to Help Your Kids Form a Healthy Relationship with Food. It’s something many families struggle with and she has some great tips (and a cutie-pie kid)!
My family has been a member of a CSA in our area for a couple of years now. For those of you who don’t know what a CSA is, CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It’s a way for people to connect with the people who grow their food and a great way to eat local. Anyway, our CSA has been hooking us up with beets for a few weeks now and, while I like to puree my roasted beets to make Purple Pizza Dough, sometimes a girl just needs a new thing to try. Cue today’s recipe!
Not only does it taste amazing, it helps us celebrate today’s special day – Moldy Cheese Day – it also incorporates these beloved beets that have been stacking up here. WIN WIN WIN!
Also, it’s official, I am addicted to these maple candied walnuts. If I had known they would be so easy to make, I would have done it long ago! Find the recipe here! I used baby arugula and gorgonzola in place of the goat cheese because it’s Moldy Cheese Day folks!
