Food Resources for Food Lovers, what news for resources do you use or read? Thought, I would share my favorites. Love to hear from you what yours are.

Let’s start with A Berry and Cookie Trifle

from California Giant Berry Farms, 

By choosing berries from California Giant Berry Farms, you can be confident that your purchase is benefiting pollinators and grower partners, like ours, that protect them. Our dedication to bee-ing leaders in sustainability led us to Bee Better, an initiative by the Xerces Society, dedicated to protecting and enriching pollinator environments.

California Giant Berry Farms, P.O. Box 1359, Watsonville, CA 95077, USA

And of course they have some wonderful recipes I do share with my readers.

This berry and cookie trifle packs layers of fruit, dairy-free yogurt and cookies into one amazing treat.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups vanilla coconut yogurt, divided
  • 2 cups mix of California Giant Blackberries, Raspberries and Blueberries
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 2 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 & 1/2 cups of cookies, crushed – You can use chocolate chip cookies

DIRECTIONS

      • To make the jam layer, add the berries, vanilla, orange zest, chia seeds and a dash of water into a saucepan and simmer for 5 minutes on medium-low heat.
      • Mash the fruit as it simmers, but leave a few pieces whole for the texture. Allow the mixture to thicken and reduce down. Set aside to cool.
      • Once the jam mixture has cooled, take a glass and layer in all the ingredients. Start by layering in a handful of the jam, a layer of crushed cookies, then the coconut yogurt, and repeat until you’ve run out of ingredients. Store in the fridge until you’re ready to eat!

Custom Sparkling Producer Rack & Riddle Acquires Weibel Family Winery in Lodi

A couple of us were talking about its a great place to go for lunch, last week. (maybe not anymore)

It is a bittersweet event for me,” Fred Weibel said in a letter to customers and employees. “For nearly 68 years I have lived, worked, and proudly carried on our family tradition. A tradition that started with my grandfather Rudolf Weibel, first in Switzerland, and then since 1935 in the United States.
