As the weather cools, we start to turn the ovens back on in our kitchens. Roasted chicken and vegetables are a seasonal favorite and an easy way to feed friends and family. Pick up a chicken from Joe Dobie, throw it in the oven when you get home and in an hour or two you have a delicious, healthy dinner. Add wedges of sweet potatoes and turnips along with some fresh herbs to the roasting pan and voila! Dinner is served.

Lately we've seen a huge demand for eggs at the market. Thank goodness we have Mauthe Dairy to fill that need on Thursdays. Come early to make sure you get a dozen of Mr. Henry's beautiful eggs. And while you're there, pick up some of his creamy Creole cream cheese for an even more indulgent breakfast. Spend a few minutes chatting with Mr. Mauthe and your day will be made. Trust us!

To many, the beginning of Fall also marks the beginning of another allergy season. Some people believe that incorporating local honey into your diet helps ward off red eyes and sneezing. Try Amanda Carjaval's fresh lemonade, made with local honey. Or stop by our Saturday market and pick up local Algiers honey from Paw Paw. He sometimes also has bee pollen, which is high in protein and vitamins, so be sure to ask. Not to be outdone by its health benefits, honey is also just plain delicious!

Continue our CCFM birthday celebration at home with this yummy Creole Cream Cheese Pecan Pound Cake, or use any other excuse to make this cake! Creole cream cheese, like CCFM, is distinctly Louisiana.
