Festive Savory Cheese Truffles for #HandCraftEdibles



In an effort to make all of my holiday gifts this year, we are sharing recipes for hand-crafted edibles. Over the course of twelve weeks, we'll be sharing recipes that you can make at home to give to friends and loved ones. We hope you'll follow along for inspiration. You can find out more information, including the schedule: here.

This week, we are sharing recipes about one of my favorite holiday appetziers: the cheese tray.

Here's what we're posting this week...

Next week, check back for our recipes to inspire you to go nutty. Think spiced nuts, nutty fruitcake, or whatever floats your nutty boat! Don't forget to check out our #handcraftededibles pinterest board.

I posted this recipe before, but wanted to re-post because it's perfect for the holidays. You can adapt the recipe to make them holiday appropriate. These were from Independence Day. I ran out of time, but had planned to do a pesto version and one with cranberries. Soon!


Ingredients

  • 1 C chevre, divided into two bowls
  • 1 T fresh blueberries, smashed
  • 1 T fresh raspberries, smashed
  • 2 T chopped fresh herbs (I used a mixture of parsley, dill, and mint), divided into two bowls
  • 1 T parmesan, grated
  • 1 T bleu cheese, crumbled
  • 1 t chili paste, halved
  • 1½ C chopped nuts (I used raw pistachios)

Procedure
Place 1/2 C chevre, blueberries, 1 T herbs, bleu cheese, and 1/2 t chili paste in one bowl. Place 1/2 C chevre, raspberries, 1 T herbs, parmesan, and 1/2 t chili paste in another bowl. Mix each bowl until well-incorporated. Roll teaspoon-sized mounds into balls. Roll in chopped nuts. I actually only rolled half of them in nuts - for the aesthetics of my serving tray - but we preferred them with nuts! Refrigerate until ready to serve.

  2. What a tempting tray of truffled treats. These savory bites will fly off the platter at Thanksgiving and I can imagine how appealing they might be as gifts, nestled in cellophane shreds inside clear plastic boxes from Packaging Specialties. Two thumbs up on this idea, Camilla.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
