Consider keeping the Maple Walnut Chevre ($7.99 for a five-ounce container) by Nettle Meadow in the fridge for unplanned afternoon snack cravings. A slice of warm toast—preferably a hearty, whole grain variety—is the perfect vehicle on which to spread on the fresh goat's cheese with abandon. It's surprisingly light while delivering on cravings for a creamy, buttery texture, very fresh with the faintest hint of maple and chopped walnuts scattered over the surface. Sweet enough to be deemed an afternoon dessert, it also makes for an excellent breakfast; use in place of cream cheese with fresh bagels.
