Butternut Squash and Cranberry Borlotti Risotto Recipe

Cranberries always remind me of the holiday season—I bake acorn squash stuffed with cranberries and apples for Thanksgiving; Prosecco with Candied Cranberries for Christmas; and this amazing Pinterest-pinned Baked Goat Cheese Roasted Cranberry appetizer for holiday cocktail parties. These ruby red fruit are also fantastic superfoods, boasting a whole host of health benefits. That's why I am a fan of Paradise Meadow Cooking & Baking Cranberries. Newly release to the market, these dried cranberries are prepared with those holiday recipes in mind, allowing them to withstand cooking high temperatures. They are available in two varieties—Julienne and Whole—for a bigger, bolder cranberry flavor. I [...]

IntoxiKate’s Edible Holiday Gift Guide: Buzz and Bloom Honey

{Buzz + Bloom Honey: For the Sweet Foodie on Your List} If you have your finger on the consumer trends for 2016, you know there's been a lot of buzz about honey. The natural sweetener is attracting consumers, and anytime you've piqued the public's interest, producers are soon to follow. Honey is used to sweeten a whole host of food products—from cereals to pastry. With food lovers looking to be a bit healthier in 2017 (it's a trend!), I doubt honey is going anywhere. While there's definite benefits to sourcing local, I often try to explore my options. Enter: Buzz [...]

IntoxiKate’s Edible Holiday Gift Guide: Empire Crate

{Empire Crate: For the New York Locavore} My father traveled often when I was little and when he returned home, he always pulled out a treat from wherever he was as he unpacked his suitcase. At first, it was things like tee-shirts or a hat, but my dad loved finding local items, and so it quickly turned to food. When I moved down to Westchester over ten years ago, I began to return the favor. Each time I returned to Syracuse, I brought a little something with me for my dad—salami and cheese from Arthur Avenue, his favorite cookies from [...]

IntoxiKate’s Edible Holiday Gift Guide: Nudo Adopt Olive Oil

{Nudo Adopt Olive Oil: For the Environmentally-Conscious Home Cook} To say it simply, Nudo Adopt is a subscription olive oil service—you adopt an olive oil tree from one of seven Italian groves, and then receive shipments of cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil that tastes anything but simple. The bonus? Your adoption scores you discounts on the online store, plus helps to preserve traditional farming practices in the beautiful Italian countryside. Hello, #giftsthatgiveback! Just like wine, climate and soil conditions affect the taste of the final product (in this case, olive oil). Nudo Adopt not only provides information on each of [...]

IntoxiKate’s Edible Holiday Gift Guide: Molly’s Bakeovers

{Molly's Bakeovers: Stocking Stuffers EVERYONE Can Enjoy} It’s no secret food allergies are on the rise—I have more friends who suffer from gluten, peanut, and dairy allergies than I can count. It makes entertaining and gift giving a bit difficult. But thanks to Molly’s Bakeovers, I can feed all of my foodie friends with no problem. Molly’s Bakeovers gave the traditional cookie recipe a serious makeover. The result is a tastier, more nutritious cookie that’s free of gluten, dairy, peanuts, egg, and soy. I’m not entirely sure how they’ve baked such amazingness in a bite-sized cookie, but they’ve done it. [...]

IntoxiKate’s Edible Holiday Gift Guide: Pulp Pantry

{Pulp Pantry: For the Health Nut Looking for a Granola Alternative} From food festival to food festival—and everything in between—sustainability is on the tip of every chef’s tongue. It’s an extension of the farm to table movement, using every bit of local goodness from root to stem. I love every single second of it—and when I heard about Pulp Pantry, I was ecstatic to see the movement extending to the food product world. In Los Angeles, juiceries throw out up to 75% of the whole fresh fruits and vegetables used to make juices. Pulp Pantry’s mission is to change that. [...]

IntoxiKate’s Edible Holiday Gift Guide: Brazi Bites

Brazi Bites: For the Food Lover Who Loves Experiencing Regional Cuisine When creator Junea Rocha couldn’t find her favorite snack—Brazilian cheese bread—in the United States, she tapped her family recipe book to create Brazi Bites. Fast forward to a few years later (and an appearance on ABC’s Shark Tank), and Brazi Bites are in thousands of stores nationwide. These bite-sized, gluten-free goodies are found in the freezer aisle, and are probably one of the few items I’ve tested that taste (and feel) freshly baked. I’m officially obsessed with all four flavors— Cheddar Parmesan, Garlic, Asiago, Zesty Pepper Jack, and the [...]
