Easy Homemade Boursin Cheese

Easy Homemade Boursin Cheese

Are you a fan of Boursin Cheese? If you’re not familiar, Boursin Cheese is a rich, creamy, herby blend of Gournay Cheese developed in Normandy, France. And while I’m a fan of Boursin Cheese, what I’m not a fan of is the price…so for the upcoming Holidays, I thought I’d make a knock-off. So here’s an Easy Homemade Boursin Cheese that’s going to be perfect for snacking with crackers, as an appetizer or maybe an addition to your cheese board.

Chipotles Classic Pico de Gallo Salsa

Chipotles Classic Pico de Gallo Salsa

Now that summer is just about here…we hope…it’s time to think about those snacks we’d like to have out on the deck on a balmy evening. Chips and Salsa, I’m thinking. And one of my favorite summer recipes is a Salsa Fresca, a classic Pico de Gallo. Particularly Chipotles Classic Pico de Gallo Salsa. Maybe even with a cold, slushy Margarita. But that will have to be another post.

Classic Lipton's Onion Soup Dip

Classic Lipton’s Onion Soup Dip

Did you grow up with this Classic Lipton’s Onion Soup Dip made from Lipton’s Onion Soup Mix and Sour Cream? I did, and we considered it a real treat at our house. Served, of course, with Lay’s Potato Chips, the ridged ones. Or maybe it WAS Ruffles, as Kathryn pointed out in her comment. I don’t think Lay’s Wavy was out way back when in the ’60’s! I guess it doesn’t matter, because you can serve your Classic Lipton’s Onion Soup Dip with either – or with other things, too. Maybe some veggies or those little crostini you can buy at the store. I dunno, whatever you want. I’ll have my Lipton’s Onion Soup Mix with chips!

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus: So good and it has just a little extra sumpin' from the smoked paprika! Easy and minutes to make.

I love love love fall. It’s my favorite season. I love the cool crisp air, and the fall colors and the golden fields and bare branches contrasting against the cool skies. And I love fall flavors and food that has – well – taste but is still comforting. Like this Roasted Red Pepper Hummus.

Pub Cheese (Beer Cheese)

Pub Cheese a.k.a. Beer Cheese

I think I’ve been in kind of a dream here at my folk’s in South Dakota. The weather’s super mild. Not even sweater weather. I could almost be in denial except there’s no denying other fall signals. Leaves, for one. Sporting events for another. And that means Beer & Cheese. And Beer Cheese?! Yes! Or “Pub Cheese” if you’re trendy.

Spicy Tomato Jam

Spicy Tomato Jam

Tomato Jam: a little sweet a little spice; this has personality, Spread it anywhere ketchup goes and a few places ketchup doesn't dare!

Talk about persistent, and maybe a bit coy, tomato jam came on slow for me. Before it began to whisper my name, I’d see it here and there, maybe on Pinterest, sometimes on Facebook and I think it even showed up now and again on our weekly Throwback Thursday link party.

Classic Ham Salad

I love quaint, old expressions and this year with all the our hot, hot days I kept thinking about “Dog days of summer.” Now, being a dog lover, I always thought that meant the hot August days where it was all a dog could do but find a bit of shade and pant and try to stay cool.
