Bacon and Bleu Cheese Dressing or Dip

  I consider myself  blessed and lucky for a number of reasons. NOTE:  Not in any particular order Reasons I’m Lucky – Top Ten List I have lived to be 56 years old.  Never thought I would make it this far and I look forward to my next birthday. I am one of the happiest people on earth.  Yep, it’s true. I continue to be amazed by all around me – mountains, oceans, plants, birds, animals, people – and never fail to appreciate their beauty and differences.  Thank you Mom and Dad. I couldn’t ask for more in a family – my heart swells with love and pride every time I think of any of them. My husband is my best friend.  I trust him and love him unconditionally. I had the best parents anyone could ever have.  I’m sure they were custom ordered for me. My friends are true.  I’ve got their back and they have mine. My troubles are manageable.  I don’t want anyone else’s. I live in the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.  I NEVER take this for granted. I have met many, many incredible people who I now consider great friends through blogging. I want you to know a bit more about #10.  One of the people I have met in cyber-space while blogging about food is my friend, Amanda over at Amanda’s Cookin’.  She is the genius behind the Secret Recipe Club.  SRC started with 19 of us and now there are four groups of 75 with a waiting list a mile long.  Lots of great food bloggers and recipes.  But one of my new favorites is Heather from Hezzi-D’s Books and Cooks. My decision about which of Heather’s recipes to make was ridiculously difficult.  Everywhere I looked and every recipe that I reviewed sent my taste buds into orbit.  I’m sure NASA is wondering where all those taste buds came from. Then again, when I saw her receipe for Bacon and Bleu Cheese Dip, my decision became very easy. I love blue cheese and my husband has also acquired a taste for it over the years.  I’ve been looking for a recipe that I can say is THE best Blue Cheese Dressing that I have found – AND I want it to be a recipe that I will keep forever. I’ve found it. No doubt, I’m lucky.  VERY lucky […]
