Cookbook Giveaway: And the Winner is…..


You are the winner of our 2nd Giveaway – The Junior League of Raleigh Cookbook.



Teslaca says, “This looks like a beautiful cookbook. The Jr. League cookbooks have the best recipes! One of my favorite things to make during the holidays is a large cinnamon roll wreath made with yeasted dough and drizzled with icing. It’s beautiful, holds well over a couple of days and makes a great gift.”

Yummy!!! The cinnamon rolls sounds wonderful.

12 Days of Christmas: Molly’s Blue Cheese Chips Recipe

Need a dish for the men this holiday? You have come to the right place. Molly has found these delicious Blue Cheese Chips from the Junior League of Raleigh Cookbook. They are a hit! If you are pressed for time, the walnuts, fresh thyme and rosemary are optional. Molly even recommends throwing some bacon onto the dish too, it adds a nice flavor to the chips.

Junior League of Raleigh Cookbook


4 Ounces blue cheese, crumbled

3 tablespoons tub-style cream cheese, softened

1/3 cup whipping cream

1 (5-ounce) package crinkle-cut potato chips (tested with kettle-cooked)

1 cup chopped walnuts, toasted

2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme

2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary

3 tablespoons bottled balsamic glaze



Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Combine the blue cheese, cream cheese and cream in a bowl and mix until smooth. Spread the potato chips on a baking parchment-lined baking sheet, making two layers if necessary. Dollop the cheese mixture over the chips and sprinkle with the walnuts. Bake for 5 minutes. Slide the chips onto a serving platter. Sprinkle with thyme and rosemary and drizzle with the balsamic glaze. Serve immediately.

Note: Do not substitute balsamic vinegar for the balsamic glaze. You can make your own glaze by mixing 3 tablespoons sugar with 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar in a saucepan or microwave-safe bowl. Cook on the stove top or in the microwave until reduced enough to coat the back of a spoon.

Serves 8 to 10.

Enjoy ! Monday we will have Laurie’s Cranberry Chipotle Chutney over Brie. Yummy.
