Ferry Building Throwback: San Francisco Egg CreamPosted by Cowgirl Creamery on
Today (April 10th) marks our last day in the Ferry Building, and we're throwing it back with a Sidekick Café classic from our founders Peg & Sue: The San Francisco Egg Cream. Showcasing Straus Family Creamery organic milk and Recchiuti's chocolate sauce, this warm-weather quencher is a foamy, refreshing taste of the Bay.
Rhubarb & Meyer Lemon PreservesPosted by Cowgirl Creamery on
Made with only three ingredients—rhubarb, Meyer lemons and sugar—these preserves from our friend @fromheadtotable are pink, rosy sunshine in a jar. The honeyed, sweetness of the rhubarb pairs perfectly with bright, aromatic Meyer lemons. These preserves are a delight served alongside a selection of cheeses, from classic Mt. Tam to Fromage Blanc—but, it really shines with Inverness. The tart, tanginess of the rhubarb and lemon find blissful harmony with the cheese’s delicate lactic acidity and notes of sweet grass and fresh cream.
Penne with Green Garlic Fresh Cheese SaucePosted by Cowgirl Creamery on
This springtime take on mac and cheese is a Cowgirl favorite: our organic Cottage Cheese & Crème Fraîche combine with green garlic and tomatoes for a not-too-rich, creamy sauce.

Ricotta-Asparagus SouffléPosted by Cowgirl Creamery on
Our Ricotta-Asparagus Soufflé is light and creamy while still being hearty enough for those lingering cool spells. Ricotta adds milky body, but the real trick is using fresh eggs, which ensure the whites get extra fluffy. Don't have ricotta? Try swapping in our Organic Fromage Blanc, which brightens up springtime dish.

Cantina Classic Grilled Cheese with Wagon Wheel and Hop AlongPosted by Cowgirl Creamery on
Is there anything more satisfying than a classic grilled cheese? Our trick for the ultimate sandwich is to layer cheeses, like our organic Wagon Wheel and Hop Along. The aged cheese lends flavor and that quintessential stretchy texture — it's the perfect grilled cheese, which is why it's a favorite at our Point Reyes Cantina. How do you grilled cheese?
Rustic Cheese and Onion Galettes, Two WaysPosted by Cowgirl Creamery on
We love a rustic galette not only for its buttery, flaky base, but also for its versatility no matter the season. Here we top with onions, bacon, and any grating bits and bobs like our organic Wagon Wheel or Hop Along, or try a fresh cheese like our creamy Fromage Blanc with herbs and lemon.

Our Fromage Blanc is tangy and luscious–the perfect vehicle for your favorite spices and seasonings. From roasted garlic & herbs to chocolate-espresso, we love these quick-and-easy dips for snacks, sandwiches, and effortless entertaining.
