I have little to say about this other than I have have the ladies at Go To Girls to thank for this stunning idea. Here’s the recipe: get a nice wedge of blue cheese, pour some honey over it, sprinkle it with chopped pecans or chopped walnuts and devour it. Use crackers or baguettes. It really doesn’t matter one bit because they are just vehicles to get more of this wonderful concoction into your mouth. If you have never put honey with blue cheese, I hope you are as pleasantly surprised as I was. It is wonderful.
Of course, I used my zip code honey from the Honeybee Guild. You can find them at many of Dallas’ local farmer’s markets. Brandon and Susan Pollard keep happy bees that give them some of the best honey I have ever had. The Dallas Morning News just did a great article on their bee keeping passion. Brandon is the guy in the bee suit in the cute photo of the kids from the White Rock Local Market post. Wherever you live, you would be doing yourself a favor by checking into the local honey producers. Local honey is good for you and the varying flavors make the search for a favorite an excellent hobby.
The women of Go To Girls write a really fun blog that covers all the lifestyle bases…fashion, food, fun, family…a little bit of everything. Check them out when you have a chance. Thanks Girls!
