  1. This was very very good! Unfortunately, my cheese separated as you can see (it's a little lumpy) but the flavour was there for sure. I have a feeling that my pot was too hot. I just love capers and they were great in this, adding the right amount of salt. I used spinach and I think that this rich dressing would be too much for a delicate green. Delicious! Made for my fellow Chef Gone Wild for ZWT8. Thanks twissis! :)
  2. Brie lovers delight!
  3. Very rich but very easy to make. I did add capers and I like the saltiness it added. I dipped some roasted cauliflower in this also. Made for Photo Tag.
  4. Wow, the first time my DH has liked any salad dressing but bleu cheese! Was a bit salty for me but that is my fault because I added the capers without tasting first. Next time I will omit them. Had some dressing leftover and added it to a seafood chowder to thicken it up & it took the chowder to a whole new level. Thanks twissis.


I am an American transplanted from Dallas to Iceland by marriage to a native Icelander & I retired to become his "Kitchen Queen". We love to entertain our family & friends, so I have an eclectic collection of recipes. I especially love simple, easy-fix, flexible & make-ahead recipes - BUT also like challenging myself on occasion. I enjoy baking & food photography. I am devoted to the "More is Always Better Principle" & apply it liberally to bacon, butter & garlic. I can have ingredient issues due to availability here in Iceland & my DH is medically diet-restricted from some ingredients as well. Either situation might require me to modify a recipe, but I will do my best to be true to your recipes & fair/honest in my reviews. Mary Pat (aka twissis)
