Dinner is Served: Spring Gnocchi Meal Kit

Dinner is Served: Spring Gnocchi Meal Kit

Ask and you shall receive. We had a customer this past weekend ask for more recipes, so we came up with this spring gnocchi dish and decided to turn it into a meal kit. Now you can simply order the kit and we will grab all the items for you and have your dinner ingredients ready for you to pick up. This dish is the perfect mix of cozy, filling flavors with bright pops of spring mixed in.

Peas, lemon, a creamy cheese sauce, sharp pecorino and optional speck makes this frozen gnocchi anything but ordinary. Click HERE to order a meal kit and check out the recipe below.

Pear Blossom Farms: Burritos with Peach Salsa & Goat Cheese

Pear Blossom Farms: Burritos with Peach Salsa & Goat Cheese

As a retail outlet in the food world, we are so lucky that we are able to remain open and serve you. We are also fortunate that we get to support small producers by selling their items in our shops.

Today we are featuring Pear Blossom Farms. Located in Palisade, Colorado, Pear Blossom Farms makes wonderful hot sauces, dressing, syrups and salsas featuring local produce. While peach season in the Palisades won't be in full swing until we are well into summer, we are craving peaches now. Thankfully Pear Blossom Farms brings their delicious jars of peach salsa to our shop. These jars preserve the juicy fruit of last season.

If you're looking for a dinner idea, Pear Blossom Farms has shared their recipe for beef burritos with goat cheese and peach salsa. Check out the recipe below and give us a call, we would be happy to build this into a meal kit for you to easily pickup.

We also love their syrups in cocktails and on waffles and pancakes. It's seriously good stuff, not too sweet and with no fake flavors, but made with real peaches and raspberries.
