My sister-in-law, Liz, got me hooked on reading the Confessions of a Pioneer Woman.
(www.thepioneerwoman.com) The writer has a great sense of humor, which I love.
Along with her entertaining blog on life, she also has a recipe page. I was very inspired by a recipe for Olive Cheese Bread, and it is great! (www.thepioneerwomancooks.com)
Olive Cheese Bread
1 regular can whole black (ripe) olives
1 6-oz jar pimiento-stuffed olives
2 green onions
¾ pound Monterey Jack cheese
½ cup real mayonnaise
1 stick butter, softened
1 loaf French bread
Roughly chop black and green olives. Slice green onions and give them a rough chop. Combine
green onions and olives with the softened butter, ½ cup mayonnaise, and grated Monterey jack
cheese. Mix thoroughly. Slice French bread in half lengthwise, then spread mixture evenly over
Bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes, or until thoroughly melted and starting to turn light brown
