Cheese

Everything Bagel Cheeseball

Everything Bagel Cheeseball

Making a homemade cheeseball is a fun and surprisingly easy appetizer. I can definitely see making this again for parties because it’s simple to prepare in advance. I liked the idea of rolling a cheeseball in all of the fun stuff you’d find on top of an everything bagel. Inside of all that good stuff is…

Baked Brie and Dried Sausage Board

Baked Brie and Dried Sausage Board

Baked brie is one my favorite appetizers at a party, so it’s a little hard to believe we haven’t made it until now. Despite wanting to make it, I’ve never actually been able to locate puff pastry when I was searching it out. Until now at Trader Joe’s. We decided to put together a little…

Smoked Cheddar Arancini

Smoked Cheddar Arancini

I’ve been wanting to make arancini (fried risotto balls) pretty much since the first time we’ve made risotto. But it always seems likes there is never quite enough to make it worth it, or else we have some really weird risotto mix-ins that wouldn’t translate into the best arancini. Plus it wasn’t until relatively recently…

Fried {Beecher’s} Cheese Curds

Fried {Beecher’s} Cheese Curds

One of our favorite happy hour places in Bellevue makes these delicious Wisconsin fried cheese curds. I think we managed to make Beecher’s fried cheese curds that rival what we get at this particular restaurant, and were perhaps even better. The batter came out perfectly, and we were pretty surprised at how easy it actually…

Goat Cheese Cakes with Caramelized Bacon, Plum, and Balsamic Drizzle

Goat Cheese Cakes with Caramelized Bacon, Plum, and Balsamic Drizzle

As you may have heard from Erin, Game of Thrones finally came back. We’ve been waiting for our Season 3 premiere since last year and were getting incredibly excited for the food, drinks, and TV. Even though our neighbors were out of town and we had to push the viewing party back a week, we…

Bacon Jam & Brie Crostini

Bacon Jam & Brie Crostini

There’s a food cart (and now diner) here in Seattle you might have heard us rave about in the past called Skillet that serves up upscale versions of breakfast diner foods as well as fancy chicken sandwiches and burgers. Plus it was through Skillet’s street cart that we were first introduced to poutine and have…

Prosciutto {Wrapped} Goat Cheese {Stuffed} Jalapeño Poppers

Prosciutto {Wrapped} Goat Cheese {Stuffed} Jalapeño Poppers

I can’t believe 2012 is coming to a close. It’s been a busy one with us getting married and all— maybe not as busy as the year before between graduating, a trip to Europe, a cross-country move to Washington, a new job for Dustin, and the adoption of the sweetest puppy in the world, but…

Homemade Chili Con Queso

Homemade Chili Con Queso

I’m slightly embarrassed to admit how much I love chile con queso and how much I ate it as a child. Whenever we’d eat at a Mexican restaurant (which was a lot), I’d order a bowl and munch on cheese covered chips as my entire dinner. At this point in my life I was a…

Nut Crusted Goat Cheese + Spinach, Avocado & Strawberry Salad

Nut Crusted Goat Cheese + Spinach, Avocado & Strawberry Salad

Best salad ever. It’s sweet, filling, and you definitely get your fill of fruits and veggies for the day. It also has amazing warm and creamy goat cheese cakes resting on all of the colorful stuff. This is about the healthiest we ever get in this household. So here’s what you do. Put a 6-ounce…

Herbed Baked Brie

Herbed Baked Brie

It’s hard to believe it was a year ago that Dustin and I had just finished up at Rice and were heading off on our trip to Europe. We had the best time visiting London, Paris, and Rome and are itching for our next trip across the Atlantic. Some of our best moments were in…
