[AD] Sweet Heat Goat Cheese Danish with @Montchevre! Summer is coming to an end, so let’s go out with a spicy bang. Today, I’ve teamed up with @Montchevre to create a Danish recipe using their Jalapeño Honey Goat Cheese Log. #MontchevreGoatCheese #GoatCheese #GoatCheeseRecipe Now this recipe is not for the faint of heart. It packs some serious heat, that is wonderfully balanced with sweet honey that is sure to make your tastebuds explode. The Montchevre® Jalapeño Honey Goat Cheese Log has a great taste and is ideal as the cheesy base for this Danish. Spicy jalapeño and a touch of sweetness blends beautifully with the fresh and creamy consistency of goat cheese. Add that on top of puff pastry along with clove-spiced pistachios and freshly sliced jalapeño peppers and you’ve got a killer dish, my friends.3 Sweet Heat Goat Cheese Danish INGREDIENTS: 1 log Montchevre® Jalapeño Honey Goat Cheese 1/4 cup roasted, salted pistachios (crushed) 1/2 tsp. ground cloves 1 jalapeño (sliced) Pre-made frozen puff pastry sheet Honey DIRECTIONS: 1. Defrost the pre-made puff pastry sheet and preheat the oven to 425F. 2. Roll out the puff pastry to fit over a long tart pan (or a pie pan will do!). Cover the pan with the pastry and press into the bottom/sides with your fingers. Cut off excess dough. 3. Crumble the Montchevre® Jalapeño Honey Goat Cheese along the bottom of the pastry dough to cover the surface. 4. Crush the pistachios in a zip-loc bag and add in the ground cloves. Shake to mix and then sprinkle on top of the goat cheese base in the pan. 5. Top the pastry with the sliced jalapeño and fold over excess dough on top. 6. Brush the crust with honey and drizzle the whole pastry center with honey. 7. Place in the oven and bake for approximately 20 minutes. Remove and let cool slightly. Serve hot and enjoy! There you have it. A summer treat with a spicy kick! Make sure to pick up the best of the best, Montchevre® Goat Cheese, and end the season with a bit of sweet heat. Seriously, this cheese is so versatile in recipes, it’s just always a good idea to have a log on hand. Happy baking!

Spicy Beer & Beef Galette with @lauras_lean! #ad It may sound crazy, but Father’s Day is sneaking up on us. AH! #ad So it’s time to start preparing for a day to spoil that special dad in your life. Today, I’ve teamed up with Laura’s Lean to create an irresistible recipe that everyone will enjoy this holiday. Featuring beer, jalapeños, smoked paprika, fresh apricots, and Laura’s Lean 96% Lean Ground Beef, this is one killer galette. This recipe includes all natural ingredients (even the @lauras_lean beef!), so you know that you can feel good about the dish. In particular, I think the quality of meat is non-negotiable. Laura’s Lean products meet strict USDA standard to qualify as lean, also making it certified by the American Heart Association as “Extra Lean”. Best of all, Laura’s Lean 96% Lean Ground Beef is a “Never Ever” offering. What is a “Never Ever” beef, you ask? It means that the protein is sourced from cattle that was raised on vegetarian feed and without added hormones or antibiotics. Alright, enough of my jabbering… let’s get to cooking! Spicy Beer & Beef Galette INGREDIENTS: 1 lb. @Lauras_lean 96% Lean Ground Beef 4 tbs. beer (divided) 1 jalapeño (diced) 1/2 red onion (sliced) 1 fresh apricot (sliced) 2 tbs. yellow mustard 1 tbs. + 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika 1 tbs. salt Fresh basil (shredded) Frozen puff pastry sheet 2 eggs DIRECTIONS: 1. Preheat oven to 425F & line baking sheet w/ parchment. 2. Roll out puff pastry into large rectangle (10”x14”) & place on baking sheet. 3. Mix together 2 tbs. beer, 1 egg, 1 tbs. smoked paprika, salt, & jalapeño. Add Laura’s Lean 96% Lean Ground Beef & combine. 4. Dump meat mix on puff pastry. Spread evenly within 1 inch of edges. 5. Top with sliced onion & apricot. Fold edges of puff pastry along ends. Brush w/ egg white wash. 6. Place in oven & bake 20—25 min. Make sauce by combining mustard, 2 tbs. beer, & 1/2 tsp. paprika. 7. Remove from oven. Drizzle mustard beer sauce on top & serve hot. Make sure to check out @Lauras_Lean in the meat section at your local market. So tell me, which dad in your life would enjoy this recipe the most? #LaurasLean #NVREVR #noantibiotics #noaddedhormones #allnatural

Off to the races with @rd1spirits! I recently moved to Lexington, Kentucky and it has been a year full of natural beauty, Southern hospitality, and whiskey. I know, life is hard. And this last week, Kentucky added a cherry on top of it's awesomeness... the horse races! I attended the @keeneland Spring Meet in my gorgeous city a few days ago and it was fabulous. Big hats, stunning horse specimens, and whiskey at every turn. Lucky for me, I happened to have a bourbon bottle from the city's first federally registered distillery, @rd1spirits. So what better way than to celebrate the races with a dram of Manchester Reserve. With distinct notes of smoked oak and a brown sugar finish, it's pretty ideal to sip on while watching your horse cross the finish line. And how gorgeous is this silver barrel tumbler from @lexingtonsilver?! Cheers to you friends and make sure to shout out your predictions for this year's Spring Meet winners... no seriously, I need help placing my bets! #rd1 #lexington #springmeet #keeneland #keenelandspringmeet #whiskey #lexingtonky #lexingtonkyphotographer #horseracing

LifeStraw Home: Clean Water + Charitable Impact

The Water Filter Pitcher itself is also made from a sleek and sustainable, BPA-free glass, making for a beautiful addition to your kitchen tools and also doing away with wasteful single-use plastics. The brand also has the option to customize the pitcher with colorful filter housing replacements and silicone base attachments. But besides the obvious benefits of incorporating LifeStraw Home into your household’s daily drinking water routine, there is an added societal bonus.
