A taste of cheese....

This recipe has been in my files for many years - maybe since the late-seventies.  It was printed in the local newspaper and has become a favorite of City Girl through the years.

Go ahead and use those heart-shaped dishes!  This is Heart Month, plus Valentine's Day comes along soon!  Use any kind of cracker you like for spreading.  If you choose to try shaping a cheese ball, I would advise that it be very well-chilled before the shaping process, as this has a softer result.

Something else that looks good - even tastes good - is this:

Peeled, hard-boiled eggs are good to add to that pickled beet juice!  Isn't this one pretty?  They would look great in a bowl on the party table!

If you are planning a Super Bowl party, perhaps some of the recipes from the blog this week might be good to include on your serving table.  Enjoy!


  1. Oh, Sister!!! I have enjoyed that cheese dip at your home many times, and now I might be forced to make some for myself! Thank you for sharing this recipe, and the other one as well. Not a fan of beets, though... Have a Super Saturday! Love you!

  2. I love cheese and this looks so good and I like the idea of pickling an egg in beet juice. I have a jar of beet pickles in the fridge and I might try it.

    We had lots of snow yesterday but it's so nice and sunny this morning.

    Have a great weekend,. I can't believe it's already Saturday. The time is flying so very fast.

  3. Nellie, I love cheese so much I must try your recipe! Your pretty heart dish makes a lovely presentation for February. My Mama used to make pickled hard boiled eggs in beet juice. They were divine. Thank you for stirring up a great memory. xo ♥

  4. Thanks for the reminder to pull out those heart-shaped ramekins! Love your pink eggs, too :)

  5. Sounds yummy, Nellie. Nice combination. Love your hearts, too. Thanks for your visits. Susan
