Many of these recipes are from The Cabot Creamery Cookbook, which features simple, wholesome dishes from America’s best dairy farms. In addition to featuring recipes that showcase Cabot’s award-winning cheese, butter, and yogurt, the book also includes gorgeous photographs of farm families and their beautiful bovines. Accompanying those incredible images are stories about life on Cabot dairy farms throughout New York and New England.

So here, in no particular order, are ten terrific recipes that you can make for your family, at Easter and throughout the year. They’re sent with love from the 1,200 farm families who own Cabot.
