I really admire the blogs that focus on food and recipes. I search them almost every day looking for the next best thing to cook. Or maybe it’s the food porn. The beautiful pictures that make your mouth water. I vow that the next time I post a recipe it will have a wonderful drippy picture, but right now I don’t have a picture, just a tasty treat. Since it’s the first recipe, it’s an appetizer. I’ve always known this recipe as Carrie’s Cheese Puffs. I think Carrie attended my parent’s church, but we all love this. I think it’s best with a crisp light white like Savignon Blanc or Pinot Gris, but that’s me because I’d rather start the meal with something lighter. It’s not foodie, or precious, just good, and I’ll bet you can’t eat just one.
