Fondue for two.

Today I have my -in real life- friend, Tawny guest posting for me since we have the in laws in town!
Go say hi to her! Be sure to leave her some love! Doesn't this recipe look delicious?!  YUM!

Hi!  I'm Tawny and I blog over at Tawny's Tid Bits!  I'm a newbie blogger, been blogging since February 2013.  I'm getting the hang of things and loving everyone that I'm meeting!

Gotta mention how I know Amber.  We used to waitress together.  She was my bosses niece!  We fell outta touch (probably 5+ years since we worked together), but when I fell in love with her blog and wanted to do one of my own (New Years Resolution), we got back in touch!  Wouldn't change it for the world! :) 

Over at my blog, who knows what I'll blog about!  I'd have to characterize myself as blogging about daily life, nothing is held back!  Here is a little more about me.  And the time I did my first 1/2 marathon, by the way signed up for the one for next year just the other day. And for those runners.... check out the Pace DJ app, pretty amazing!  I also host a link up on Sunday's called Insta-Recap of My Instagram.  On Tuesday I co-host a linkup called Weekly TV Roundup! I would love for you to join me!

Now onto my gift for you. A recipe!!! I love food... and I love cheese! Who doesn't love cheese?! This is a pretty simple recipe, the cheese is a little expensive, but it's worth it!  This recipe can easily feed 2, probably 4, depends how hungry you are! 

What you'll need:

  • 2-3 cloves of garlic (minced)
  • 1 1/2 cup of wine (Riesling)
  • 1 pound Natural Gruyere Cheese (do not used processed) - you can find this usually at Kroger, not where like the shredded cheese and/or singles are.
  • 2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • (if wanted) 3 tablespoons of Kirsch (cherry liquor)
  • Black Pepper to taste
  • 2 French loaves

You will grate your cheese and toss the corn starch and pepper around in the cheese.

Heat your wine in a pan, add your garlic, do not let it boil! Once it gets hot, you'll add the cheese a little at a time, don't dump the whole thing in there at once.  Once the cheese gets to the right consistency add in the kirsch.  If the cheese is too thin, just add some corn starch. But beware, a little goes a long way. :)

Also during this time, you'll be baking the french bread and cutting it.  So it's best to have someone doing this one on the side.

The recipe is so short and simple that I'll add the pictures now instead of "in" the instructions.

Toss the corn starch in with the cheese (I'm bad and forgot to take "that" picture).

My lovely fondue pot! Not what I cooked in! 

I hope y'all try this recipe and please let me know how it tastes!  Can't wait to hear from y'all!
