National Dairy Month – Got Milk!

National Dairy Month – Got Milk!

A summer treat that is enjoyed by people young and old is ice cream. This cool, creamy treat can be enjoyed even more in June to help celebrate National Dairy Month. National Dairy Month started out as National Milk Month in 1937. It was designed to promote the drinking of milk and help stabilize the dairy demand when production was at a surplus. This has turned into a tradition to honor and recognize the contributions that the dairy industry makes to the world. The dairy industry is comprised of more than just farmers who produce milk. It also includes the processors and manufacturers, as well as the retailers and foodservice operators who bring the products to the consumers.

Easter Brunch

Easter Brunch

Sunday brunches are a time when family and friends come together to enjoy great coffee, good laughter, and amazing food. One of the biggest brunches of the year happens on Easter. The basic recipes common at the brunch table are sticky buns, quiches, quick breads, muffins, fruit salads, and egg casseroles. I challenge you this year to try some different brunch recipes that are filled with the tastes of spring.

Fish on Fridays

Fish on Fridays

Many Catholics observe fish on Fridays during the Lenten season. McDonald’s Filet of Fish sandwich was born out of fish on Fridays when they noticed that hamburger sales dropped noticeably in the 40 days before Easter. The franchise introduced the new menu item and sales numbers picked up once again. Another popular entrée that I remember being served most Friday’s growing up was tuna and noodle casserole. Well, friends and neighbors, fish on Fridays does not need to be fast food fish sandwiches or goopy tuna and noodles. I urge you to step out of the box and use this time of year to explore the fish selection at the grocery store and try some new recipes during Lent’s no meat days – seven of which are Fridays and one is Ash Wednesday. Eight days to try eight new fish recipes.

Cooking with Chef Drew at Flatted 5th at Potter's Mill

Cooking with Chef Drew at Flatted 5th at Potter's Mill

During this time of year, the days are cold and long and it seems that warm weather is still many months away. People begin thinking about getting away from the cold and snow and into a climate that brings with it fun in the sun. Well my friends and neighbors, spice up your days and dinner table with the warm and inviting dishes of the South. This month’s column was inspired by an amazing restaurant south of Dubuque, Flatted 5th at Potter’s Mill. While the restaurant isn’t in New Orleans or the deep South, it is just a short drive down Highway 52 South into Bellevue.
