I think food sets the tone for a party, and there was some awesome food at my boss’s housewarming party about a month ago. There was one appetizer that I still dream about: a cheese log covered in cranberries that had a unique, awesome flavor. I am not even quite sure what kind of cheese it was, but let me tell you something—it was absolutely amazing!
I’d never had a sweet cheese ball or log before. In fact, if you had presented the idea to me before, I would’ve told you that you were nuts. But now, my mind is completely open to cheese balls and logs. I am excited about trying different versions and exploring different flavors that make mouths happy.
With this Herb & Garlic Cheeseball, I am off to a good start! I used cream cheese (of course), goat cheese, and a blend of herbs. I had to add a little fresh garlic—it’s only right, because herbs and garlic are a match made in heaven! Add those to a bowl of cheese and it’s magic. I love this cheese ball and I think it’s perfect on a cheese plate anytime you are entertaining guests.
