I made a great red & golden beet salad with my #CastelloUSA blue, but am loving this chicken & waffle with blue & bacon recipe! #30AEats #HonestCooking
Savory waffles stacked with bacon, chicken and blue cheese with a hint of sweetness. Swerve sliders for brunch or a snack for a spin on chicken and waffles.

It is #BluesdayTuesday, and I have a +Castello Cheese ME Recipe with beets, salted pecans, red onion and fresh arugula that will make your day! Check out this delicious dish in the link below! +HONEST COOKING +Kalle Bergman +Jill Tanner +SoWal +Visit South Walton +Southern Living +VISIT FLORIDA +For the Health of It +Winnie Abramson +Foodie Stuntman +Nutritional Health Care Center - Herbalife 
I should have blue cheese running through my veins as I love all varieties that much. I was the weird kid that thought blue cheese was the greatest thing since sliced bread, or rather sliced red onion, as that is what my taste buds crave with blue cheese. When invited by Honest Cooking to partner with CASTELLO® in a Summer of Blue campaign, I jumped at the chance. But, when creating this recipe on a very hot and humid Florida Gulf Coast afternoon...

Hit your local farmers market this weekend and whip up a pan of my Me Maw's summer Corn Pudding! So delicious for one, a family, or make a couple of casseroles for a backyard BBQ!! +VISIT FLORIDA +Visit South Walton  +Farmers Market Coalition +Seaside +Cottage Rental Agency Seaside +Grand Boulevard +Donna Currie +Rosemary Beach, Florida +Emerald Coast Florida +Beachcomber Destin 
  My grandparents were peanut farmers in Statesboro, Georgia, and as a child I was giddy with glee each time we left Charleston to visit them. My grandmother always had a pot of peanuts boiling when we arrived, knowing they were my favorite. The smell of her buttery corn casserole baking has also become a favorite recipe thought the years, along with remembering her weathered loving hands battering up the freshly plucked chicken she prepared lat...

My family can't get enough of this Mexican Caviar Dip! Hope you enjoy it too! It is perfect to savor during the warm summer months, and uses fresh veggies, packed with Vitamin C! Eat alone, or top any steak, chicken or seafood! #30AEats   #SouthWalton  +Visit South Walton +VISIT FLORIDA +freshfromflorida +M Laney +foodgawker - Chuck Lai +Fodor’s Travel +Foodie Stuntman +Food Loves Writing +The Daily Meal 
This is one of my favorite appetizers, and I make it at home all the time! During one memorable chapter of my childhood, I spent the summer with my mom, and younger brother, poolside at my aunt and uncle's home in Texas, where mom made mounds of Mexican Caviar to snack on daily. It has now become a signature family dish, and my mom will sometimes add black eyed peas or boiled peanuts in place of the black beans for that Southern flair. Whatever l...
