Blue Cheese Gougères

As the end of the school year comes closer and closer, I begin to savor Saturday and Sunday more and more. Lately I’ve been trying to make the most of my weekends, which usually means I’m in the kitchen less hence my sporadic posting as of late.
This weekend I was with my friend, Brooke, for the majority of Friday and Saturday doing Relay for Life. It was a bunch of fun but, boy, was I tired afterwards! Sunday I was completely free so I made sure to dedicate it to me, myself, and I. Well, kinda. I had to do some homework and chores, but after that I was free to relax and doing some baking for Secret Recipe Club!
This will be my third time participating in SRC and I absolutely love it. I’d be lying if I didn’t say that it’s one of my favorite parts of every month.
This month I was paired up with Liz from That Skinny Chick Can Bake and I was beyond thrilled to be paired up with another baking blog. Immedaitely upon recieving my assignment I began searching through Liz’s archives for something to strike my eye. Bad idea. I must have spent a a few hours deciding because there were just so many things that I wanted to make!
Eventually I decided on the Blue Cheese Gougères for three reasons.
- I love blue cheese.
- I had never had a gougère before and was curious!
- Fellow bloggers were raving about them in the comments section so I figured they must be good!
And good they were! Actually, they were out-of-this-world amazing! My photos cannot do them justice – they are little bites of heaven. HEAVEN, I say! They are soft and fluffy and so flavorful you wouldn’t believe that they’re only seasoned with salt and pepper.
I think I’ll be making these every week…or at least for every special occassion. I’m obsessed! Thanks for an AWESOME recipe, Liz! :-D
