I'm thrilled to say that CLOBBERED BY CAMEMBERT is doing great in sales...
So...with a new book coming out, I've been so busy that I can barely breathe, with deadlines and travel for book signings, and, well, life in general. When I'm this busy, I crave comfort food, and one of the best comfort foods is a grilled cheese.
In the Cheese Shop mysteries, Charlotte's good friend, Delilah (who owns and operates the Country Kitchen) has been on the hunt for the best grilled cheese ever. Needless to say, I have to help her out, don't I? I mean, I have to experiment. I add pears, jams, onions, all sorts of things. I give it my all a couple of times a month. [Being gluten-free, I use gluten-free bread, but truly it's all about the cheese.]
Until now, I had never made a grilled cheese with Camembert, but it's a cow's milk cheese that has the great ability to melt like a dream, so why not, I thought, bloomy rind and all.
I added some spices, swathed the bread with cream cheese (to give it that extra creamy texture), and served it with mustard. Oh, yum!
I am now...comfortable and ready to write...and probably in need of a couple extra minutes on the treadmill. As Charlotte's energy-packed grandmother would say, "C'est la vie!"
GRILLED CHEESE WITH CAMEMBERT
Recently I wrote a blog for Fresh Fiction that I titled "The Joy of Cheese Cooking." I had fabulous comments from all who read it. If you get the chance, pop over and take a peek.
