    Always looking for new butter mixtures to use. It’s so much fun to have a few different kinds ready as an addition to veggies, potatoes or any side dish. Thank you for the addition.

    This works for me because I’m crazy about anything with gorgonzola. Did you happen to see the easy, easy appetizer recipe I posted last week. It, too, can be made with gorgonzola.

  5. Love the cranberry walnut pinwheels and what a great touch the cheese would add. The butter roll is pretty with the fresh parsley.
