    DH had to work today (Sat), so I decided to make a half recipe of this as a spec treat for us to share when he got home ~ & spec it was! I made it exactly as written & served it w/homemade bread + crackers. The prob w/Roquefort cheese at our house is DH makes it vanish faster than I can buy it. This recipe stretches the fridge-life of a chunk of Roquefort cheese, adds richness w/butter & cream cheese & then elevates it to spec w/the cognac. It is perfect as is, but I did sprinkle chives on top to add a color variant for the pic. We loved it & will repeat it often, so thx for sharing your mom's recipe w/us. :-)

    I made up half a batch of this for Christmas Eve and have just completed a second half-batch for New Year's Eve. It's a lovely spread to have for more special and 'sophisticated' moments. I made the first batch exactly as written and enjoyed it ver much. I have made 1 addition and 1 change in my second batch - I added lots of chopped toasted walnuts and port instead of the cognac. It tastes wonderful, too. Thanks.

I have two boys who will usually eat most things I put in front of them. As a single mom I use them as my guinea pigs....sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I have a huge garden, blueberry and blackberry bushes. I am always looking for a new recipe. I have three cats (Xiao Mao, which means little cat in Chinese, Pumpkin and Max) and two border collies, Lucy and Grace. All my animals come from Rescue Agencies. <a href="¤t=rsc002.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"><a href="¤t=006.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a><a href="¤t=hilfiger001.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
