Cheese, cheese, and more cheese

I remember being around 13 years old when my mom took an Hors d’oeuvre class. You see…my mother wanted to also be a chef, she did not attend culinary school but did take cooking classes. Also, the Gourmet channel helped a lot. When my mom took this class we had cheese dips for days with all sorts of veggies, fresh herbs, etc, but since I love cheese (my mom does too btw), I was in cheese heaven and that was fine with me.

As a result of this cheese overload back in the day, every time someone asks me to bring something to a party. I always bring a cheese dip. Everyone loves my Cream Cheese and Chives dip. I love it so much that I turned it into a pie,  No-bake savory Cream cheese and chives pie what can I say? I don’t blame the people who ask for it all the time.

Now let’s talk about roasting bell peppers.

There are many ways to roast a bell pepper. In my opinion, the easiest way to roast a bell pepper is by doing it in the stovetop. Roasting a bell pepper was one of the first things I learned how to do in culinary school. This method is also convenient if you are only roasting one bell pepper. If you are roasting more then one then Ill recommend doing it in the oven.

How do you roast a bell pepper?

  1. Turn the burner to the highest setting and place the pepper directly on the flame.
  2. Using a pair of tongs turn the pepper a couple of times until the skin is completely blackened.
  3. Place the pepper in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap.
  4. The pepper will steam. This helps to remove the skin.
  5. Remove the skin using a paper towel, or remove the skin with your hands, but in all honesty, if I were you Ill remove it with a paper towel.
  6. Voila! you are done.

Now that we have learned a new skill, let’s see what else do you need to make your friend’s new favorite cheese dip 🙂
