Posted on June 18, 2018 by in cheese, Uncategorized

Easy Cheese Fondue

This easy Cheese fondue is such a vast improvement on my early experiences with fondue that it is hard to even find one comparison. My easy Cheese Fondue is packed with flavor – something our dip-something-in-a-pot-of-oil-fondues never had. Let me explain. When I was at teachers college we had a fondue in my room every […]

Camembert Honey Walnut Phyllo Cigars

Camembert Honey Walnut Phyllo Cigars – my suggestion is to make as many as you can, because they will fly off the snack platter. These Camembert Honey Walnut Phyllo Cigars can be made, frozen and fried just before serving for that extra delicious crunch. I love the combination of the creamy melted cheese, the crunchy […]

Caprese Bombs

These Caprese Bombs are just the bomb, pardon the pun. Caprese Bombs made with 5 ingredients, I kid you not. The recipe makes 20 and they flew off the plate before I could take proper pictures. The kids (and dad) absolutely loved them. A traditional Caprese Salad is a salad made with fresh tomatoes, fresh […]

Mung Bean Falafels

Mung Bean Falafels are just so much better than the chickpea version. These green Mung Bean Falafels are so funky and I loved the crunchy texture. I loved the process, because you have to sprout the mung beans first, but that is the coolest thing ever.  So one packet of mung beans yield enough for […]

Spicy Pork Samosas

Make these Spicy Pork Samosas on the days that you need that fierce kick in the mouth. They will get your endorphins going again. My Spicy Pork Samosas are NOT for the faint-hearted. They are VERY spicy.  Then just when you survive the heat from the filling, try dipping it in the Shirachia. The Shirachia […]

Baked Brie

Baked Brie is from the gods. Seriously, I don’t do it often, because I have no control. Baked Brie is brie on steroids, it takes this already delicious cheese to another level. It is definitely a showstopper too. Whether you make individually  wrapped cheeses or one big round, your guests will love it. It is […]

Pork Rillettes Paté – pork you CAN trust and enjoy!

pork rillettes paté

Pork Rillettes is all the goodness of pork in spreadable form. The fattiness, the robust pork flavor and the shredded texture. Pork Rillettes paté is almost the same as rillettes, I just took it a little further in the processor to give a smoother end result….. a little more lady-like. I am a a sucker […]
