Give A Gallon This Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving week is here, and many of us are planning our holiday feasts. Our grocery lists are growing, and we are organizing our families for our holiday visits. We give thanks for all our blessings, and we may even take for granted our ability to plan and prepare a holiday feast. But in Indiana, we are experiencing a growing number of families that use food banks for their food source or to supplement their food supply. These families are not able to plan a big feast, but they count theirRead More

Tuesday morning, we were honored to represent Indiana Dairy and Fuel Up to Play 60, alongside Dairy Farmers of America and Elanco, as we helped packed more than a million meals at Lucas Oil Stadium— one million meals would feed 16 Lucas Oil Stadiums full of people! The morning started at a kick-off rally with our favorite long-snapper (or as he calls it, “upside down quarterback”), Colts player Matt Overton. In a room filled with more than 500 dairy fans, Overton shared stories about this love of dairy farms and how he has helpedRead More

Go Bold with Butter!

Summer is long since gone, but I can still see the butter wheels spinning out the gold glaze on slices of bread at the Dairy Bar. The smell of melted butter makes my knees week, and the taste of steak patted with a compound butter mixed with blue cheese and cayenne pepper makes my mouth reveal in joy!  Butter- it makes vegetables magical, pecan pie silky and fresh warm holiday rolls disappear!  Here are some fun tips about using and enjoying butter. Keeping Butter golden! Keep butter in its originalRead More

Happy Take a Hike Day!

The fall is the absolute perfect season for hiking, so it makes sense that Take a Hike Day is November 17.  Hiking is my favorite form of exercise because it’s fun, it’s outside, and it can be relaxed or strenuous, depending on your mood. The number one rule of hiking, in my opinion (besides don’t get lost!) is take a snack! Before hiking, make sure you eat a breakfast that will keep you satisfied (skip the donut and try instead oatmeal made with milk for extra protein, Greek yogurt andRead More

Seriously Amazing Mac & Cheese

Hello!  Jent here guest posting From My Front Porch! Is it weird how much I love the smell of a dairy farm!  Of course, I live on a hog farm so comparatively that makes sense! I also love all the good things that come from a dairy farm – milk, cheese, whole cream, butter!  Combine them, throw in some pasta and you end up with some seriously amazing mac & cheese!  This is one of the most requested items when people come over for supper!  This goes perfectly with pork BBQRead More

It’s Not All About The Turkey

When the clock strikes 2 p.m. you’ll find us gathered around the table, elbows up and ready to pass the food. But as you know, Thanksgiving is not all about the turkey. For our family, Thanksgiving day is more than turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy. Thanksgiving is one of two holidays where tradition is coveted. Every third Thursday in November, my father wakes up and heads to the donut shop for at least a dozen donuts. It started several years back, and it’s one of the most simple reasonsRead More

Turkey Day Twist

While I am a born and raised Hoosier girl, and so proud of it, I have Pennsylvania blood running through my veins. See, both of my parents wereRead More

It’s ISSMA Time!

If you’d like to see some fierce competition among Indiana’s high school students, step in to Lucas Oil Stadium on Saturday, November 8.  No, I’m not talking about football; I’m talking about the 42nd Indiana State School Music Association’s Marching Band Finals.  Hours upon hours of blood, sweat, and tears will culminate at this event as champions from each of the four classes (based on school size) will be crowned.  As with any competition, there will be a lot of tension in the air during each class at Lucas OilRead More
