Looking for recipes!

I'm pulling out my apron and recipe books ladies. Why so? I have a couple packages of Brie cheese that I got for a total of $1.36 that I have no clue what to do with. Why did I get it? It was such a steal and I want to try making a recipe that I made last fall at Grandma's house. The ingredients you ask? In order:

*French bread, sliced in half

*Butter & brown sugar spread

*Apples slices

*Brie cheese on top

Then I baked this in the oven until the cheese started melting. I don't know what the name of it was; I was just given instructions by a lady from church on how to make this for a progressive dinner Grandma and I were hosting.

So. I could make this recipe, but I'm going to need a couple more to use up this cheese! Do any of you ladies use brie cheese? Do you have any favorite recipes you're willing to share, or web links that I could visit?

Oh yes, and speaking of aprons and getting in the kitchen...

Doesn't this give you some enthusiasm to bake pies, or cobbler, or something with cherries? =) You don't have to ask because it is available in my shop!

GASP!! That is ADORABLE! Can you have a giveaway?? :P Just kidding. I guess I should spend the money if I want something that cute. ;)

Oh, and I've never heard of brie cheese. :D

Cheri said...

Thankyou, Sarah. =) Your comment made me smile!

OH MY, that is WAY TOO CUTE! :) It reminds me of an apron I just LOVE. I mean, I can sew...but I saw it at Bed, Bath & Beyond and I *had* to have it. I finally gave the money for it, and it was well worth it. It makes me feel so happy when I wear it, happy & feminine. It's cream with cherries, red trim & pockets. One day, I may just have to buy one of your Gracie aprons - they are totally adorable!

Oh, that is SO CUTE!

Cheri, when will you start producing your own line of patterns for those of us who drool over your creations, yet would like to sew our own? :)

As for Brie cheese, I don't know, since I've never had it. The recipe you posted about sounds yummy though!

Cheri said...

Thankyou, Ruth Ann. =)
I'll have to go to Bed Bath & Beyond sometime to see their cherry apron. One can never have to many, you know. =)

Cheri said...

Sarah Jane,

I had to laugh. =) I've been asked that several times - when am I going to produce patterns? - and I'm not sure. With the way the economy is right now, I'm not sure if I'd sell very many outside of my blog readership.

I love the apron! I wish I could help you out on the brie cheese, but I'm as clueless as you. ;-)

oh, I love brie!! My favorite way to eat it is on some artisan bread... ohh, my mouth is watering! Another way I eat it is (again on some delicious artisan (European) bread, with some ham, lettuce and a juicy tomato. I don't have any grand recipes for you... those are just the ways I love to eat brie (when I can afford to buy it that is!!)
