Update your classic holiday green bean casserole, using our goat cheese, lactose free sour cream, and fresh, in-season fennel and green beans.

Make a new dish that kicks the old one’s butt, that’s what!”

Redwood Hill Farm’s Smoked Goat Cheddar knocks it out of the park in a grilled cheese sandwich! Use your favorite hearty bread from a local bakery if you can. I used Full Circle Baking Company’s organic “Powerbread” with Walnuts, Almonds and Raisins. – from Nancy Lorenz
