From Daryl aka Avery:
FOR CHEDDAR OR WORSE has been out two weeks and thanks to you, my fans, it's a national bestseller.
So to celebrate, I'm going to share one of the recipes from the book. When I did the research for this particular book, I thought cheddar. All things cheddar. I couldn't seem to help myself. Cheddar grilled cheese, cheddar quiche, cheddar appetizers. I simply didn't want Havarti or Monterey Jack. It was a no-brainer. Cheddar. Everybody loves cheddar!
But then, while I was writing a scene set at the Emerald Pastures Inn (where Charlotte and the owner, Erin, are dining for lunch) I had a craving for blue cheese and I thought, hmm, what if I made a salad that I love - I order it at a little cafe near my house - but I'll add my mother's favorite blue cheese salad dressing to it? It doesn't include cheddar but, what the heck, it's tasty!
So imagine visiting Providence, Ohio, and sitting on this lovely porch in the spring, looking out at the pastoral grounds, hearing the lowing of cows and the twitter of birds. Nothing could go wrong.
Well, of course, something could go wrong. Charlotte is there and she's, ahem, asking questions.
Suddenly a railing falls from overhead...
Cue: scary music.
Enjoy your lunch (or dinner). Heh-heh-heh.
|Not pretty when in the blender! LOL|
