Halibut with Mango and Goat Cheese

Grilling in the summer is the norm at my house. Lately, I have really been trying to get my kids to eat more fish. This Halibut with Mango and Goat Cheese recipe is one of my newest favorite creations that they really liked (can you say no leftovers?).  The combination of maple syrup and Dijon mustard flavors the fish to perfection, and it goes great with the sweet and savory mango topping made with fresh mangos, parsley, lime juice and goat cheese. This makes a great weekend night family dinner or weekend idea for entertaining with friends. Serve with a tossed salad and grilled asparagus or grilled okra for a healthy summery meal in under 35 minutes.

Turkey Burgers Featuring Belle Chevre Goat Cheese

I am so excited about sharing this favorite Burger recipe: Turkey Burgers with Belle Chevre, a recipe by Chef Marvin Woods, Emmy Award Winner Nominee, Cookbook Author, and one of the first chefs to join the “Obama’s Let’s Move Campaign”. He has teamed up with Belle Chevre Creamery to create a new E-Cookbook filled with fabulous summer recipes. I am honored that Belle Chevre has featured me on their blog this week. These Turkey Burgers are so easy to prepare, and my kids loved them too. Using Vidalia onion and panko breadcrumbs adds wonderful flavor and crunch. Enjoy these this summer on the grill or anytime of the year using a grill pan. Sliced Belle Chevre Artisan Goat Cheese makes these a winner.

Super Bowl Sunday: 4 Ingredient Appetizer: Tomato-Goat Cheese Rounds

Super Bowl Sunday is right around the corner, and my boys are so excited about the Steelers being in it this year. My youngest son, Zachary, loves the Steelers and got to see them play earlier this year in Nashville against the Titans. I have started to compile my menu, and these Tomato-Goat Cheese Rounds will definitely be on the list. This recipe was featured on a television segment last year, and the station loved them. The producer of the show told me, “These are simple, pretty, and everyone will think you were in the kitchen for hours.” I used Belle Chevre Goat Cheese, one of my all time favorites. If you can’t find it, Boursin works great too.
