Vermont Cornmeal Cheese Crackers

This recipe was entered in our We ♥ Local Cornmeal recipe contest by Kate Laud.  Kate says,"These crackers have crunch from the cornmeal partnered with a peppery cheese taste.  You can skip the dip and be very satisfied with just a cracker or two, but they're also perfect with guacamole or salsa."

Lemon Olive Oil Cornmeal Cake

This recipe was a finalist in our We ♥ Local Cornmeal recipe contest and was submitted by Brittany Kirvan.  Brittany says, "This is a gluten, dairy and refined sugar-free cake, but it is not too sweet and suitable to snack on at anytime of the day."  Use local cornmeal, honey, and eggs to keep it as local as possible.

Creamy Avocado & White Bean Wrap

White beans mashed with ripe avocado and blended with sharp cheddar makes an incredibly rich, flavorful filling for this wrap. Soak dried beans overnight or use beans from a can.
