  1. You said it! This is "comfort" food! I made this for a small luncheon group served with crisp green salad - oil & vinegar dressing and crisp Italian rolls.Havarti cheese comes in many types , I was not too sure which one you meant. I always have Havarti Tilsit at home but I thought that would be too powerful so I used Dutch Leerdammer and it was perfect Everyone loved it Thanks Vicki for a keeper
     
  2. This was delicious! I wouldn't change a thing...I'm sure we'll be having this again & enjoying it just as much. Thanks very much!!!

I live in the Phoenix area where the sun always shines. I love to cook and garden. I am a "gadget freak" and seem to buy every cooking tool that comes on the market. Currently, I'm playing with pressure cooker cuisine. If I could take a month off, I'd go to Italy and go to 3-4 different cooking schools. My favorite cookbook is "The New Professional Chef" by the Culinary Institute of America. The dog in the photo is Scout, who just happens to be the best dog in the world.
