Brie Frenzy

That picture says a thousand words! SP's Baked Brie recipe is to die for! Simple and scrumptious!

1 wheel of brie, any size.
brown sugar
sliced almonds

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees
  2. Remove cheese from refrigerator and unwrap.
  3. Gently slice or cut off the entire top layer of the rind. Keep sides of rind intact. If top layer is not entirely removed you will not achieve the ooey gooey wonder of this dish.
  4. Pack top surface with brown sugar and almonds. The more the merrier.
  5. Press down on top to make sure it's packed in.
  6. Pop it in the oven and bake until ooey gooey wonderful! Timing is relative to the size and quality of the cheese, but you want it jiggly and liquidy in the center.
  7. Serve immediately with water crackers. Make sure everyone has their own knife!

Mediterranean Dip

SP and I shared a pie plate of this for dinner. We devoured it.
I found THIS RECIPE on Tasty Kitchen. Thanks!
Don't let my picture deceive you - it was really good and healthy. Follow the link above to see the good more appetizing pictures of it!

Fried Mashed Potato Rings

I made these for a Super Bowl Party.I found this recipe Potato Rings with Homemade Buttermilk Ranch on my new favorite blog to follow SpoonForkBacon. And of course, not only does my iPhone take lousy pictures, but of course my rings look no where as beautiful and perfect as theirs. How do you master double dipped egg battering with out getting it lumpy?
I highly recommend these morsels of yummyness! The mashed potatoes themselves were fantastic with caramelized onions and chives! Yum! And then battered and fried and dipped in home made ranch? Heaven!
