Old English Potted Cheese

Old English Potted Cheese

I have good news today. See, some of you know I’ve been having some troubles with my joints; typing, while still slow and has to be done just a little at a time is easier and I’m trying to use the voice options on my computer. And cooking has been challenging, but I’m really trying to focus on fun & easy (and lightweight) food. And the best news? I made Old English Potted Cheese and it’s a super easy cheese spread and just to die for.

Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip

Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip

I used to be kinda opposed to Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip, just on principle…and here’s the deal: Back in the ’80s, it was all about the creamy Spinach Dip and it was served warm or cold in a bread bowl. I loved that stuff! And I remember how fancy we all thought it was, too. Then in the ’90s it was all about the Hot Artichoke Dip. It seemed that just about every restaurant had a version. It was everywhere! And I loved that stuff, too! Of course, I’ve always had a thing for artichokes, and guess who else in the house does? Homer, my cat. She goes nuts over them. She can smell even the canned artichokes in the grocery bag and immediately comes running!

Spiced Mulled Wine

Spiced Mulled Wine

When I was young and living in the Colorado Rockies, in the tiny little village of Georgetown, I had “Spiced” or Mulled Wine for the first time. I can’t think of any recipe that says “Holiday” more than warm spiced wine on a wintery day. It doesn’t matter if it’s a holiday with family and/or friends in the cabin or on a ski or snowmobile trip, or a home-based gathering like Thanksgiving or Christmas, Spiced Mulled Wine makes the party!
