Easy, flavorful French onion soup is a perfect way to welcome fall.
With shorter days approaching, leaves beginning their slow, vibrant metamorphosis and wafts of fall greeting us at every turn, it’s time to turn our thoughts to warm and comforting food.
September is often our bonus month of summer. However, despite our lovely, frequently sunny days, a change in the air is most often immediately felt once the calendar turns and Labor Day has come and gone. Cooler, shorter evenings require soups, slow-cooked dinners and hopefully more time around the dinner table enjoying them.

One of the best things about summer is grilling season. Juicy flavorful burgers topped with thick slices of locally made Beecher’s cheddar, slow grilled ribs that fall off the bone and locally raised bone in chicken, grilled to perfection with just a little crisp outside and slathered in my favorite barbecue sauce.
Summer is a time of celebration and revisiting all of those beloved seasonal flavors that come but once a year.
Although The Bennett Crew could consume grilled chicken weekly, by the middle of summer, we’re hankering for some new flavors. Marinating chicken is a great way to infuse new flavors into a chicken dish, as well as keeping your chicken moist and juicy. This marinade uses yogurt to tenderize the chicken, and the basil pesto infuses it with a lot of enticing summer flavor.
