Labor Day Lineup – Day 3

If you’ve been following along the last couple days, you’ve now got some bite-sized apps on a stick as well as some super cheesy and spicy nachos. To wrap it all up, I thought I’d really take it home for you with a classic party food: pizza.

To keep things exciting, My friend Olivia and I decided to make two different types of pizza to share: a twist on the classic margarita pie and a smoky buffalo-esque cheese pie–both made with ingredients almost entirely from our Vineyard Market!

  • Fun to make
  • Unique
  • Customizable
  • Packed with flavor

Let’s get started!

  • 1 piece Il Forno Focaccia Bread

How to do it:

  • Preheat oven to 400 F.
  • Place Focaccia bread on a nonstick oven-safe pan.
  • Spread a very generous layer of Terrapin Ridge Spicy Chipotle Pepper Dip over top the Focaccia bread.
  • Layer shredded Fresh Mozzarella on top, then crumble Feta cubes on top of that. Add more Feta for a more tangy bite.
  • Cook pizza in the oven for 10-12 minutes, until the crust is browned and cheese is melted and bubbly.
  • Let cool and serve with additional Terrapin Ridge Dip on the side.

hibiscus 2One of our most under-rated products here in the Vineyard Market, and one we like to feature around special occasions, is the Wild Hibiscus Flowers in syrup.  Most shoppers tend to pass right over these little dark jars with a bright flower on the label.  Some don’t realize what it is, others they just don’t know what the heck to do with them.  With the warm weather finally here and Mother’s Day this weekend, it’s a wonderful time for you to pick up a jar of these delectable blossoms and Read More…

Homemade Shamrock Shake – An Adult ShakeThat Will Shake Your World

This St. Paddy’s Day, shake up your normal routine of Irish beer or whiskey with a delicious adult beverage!

Ingredients
1 ¾ c. vanilla ice cream
¼ c. vanilla vodka
¼ c. Crème de Menthe
½ tbsp. grated dark chocolate + 1 tsp. for topping
a few sprigs of mint

Instructions:
Toss ice cream, vodka and Crème de Menthe in a blender and mix until it’s evenly combined. Do not to over blend the mixture–if you do you will just might have to force yourself to add more ice cream.

Using the handle of a long wooden spoon, muddle mint at the bottom of a tall glass. Pour the thick, creamy, green yumminess just below the brim. Stir in chocolate shavings until well incorporated. Top off with the remaining chocolate shavings. The recipe makes one super sized or two regular sized shakes–you can share or tell your friends to get their own!
