  1. If you make nothing else at your next tea, at least make these sandwiches. Amazingly good.
  2. Absolutely, loved this recipe. Perfect with the pumpernickel bread (lightly toasted) and cucumber. Reminds me of home. Thank you for the posting.
  3. This recipe is super-easy, and better still, the cheese spread can be made up to a few days in advance. If making the sandwiches a day ahead, layer with damp paper towels to keep the bread from drying out. I've gotten many requests for this recipe, which is a tribute to its yumminess!


I live about 20 minutes away from Vancouver, British Coumbia in the Historic Little Fishing City of Ladner, BC, this photo is just a view from one of the many little Islands that surround Vancouver Island and Vancouver. I am close to many Berry and Fruit Farms, Organic Farms and plentiful Seafood. I am currently a part-time Private Chef for a client in Vancouver , she keeps my job very interesting snd challenging. I am always looking for recipes to prepare for her. Most of the recipes I post have been successful with clients or family over the years however I am pretty lazy about entering them in my cookbook, but I am getting better. Also after being online for years I am utilizing Recipezaar as a means to organize all my online saved recipes and recipes yet to try. My other work days are working with my Dad in the Family Business which is in Transportation . It says passions, well, I guess I have a passion for the search, the pouring over of recipes in cookbooks and the internet, most of the time I don't end up making any of them but I just love to look.
