Tasty Tuesday Tuscan Cheese Spread!

I made my usual cookout goodies for Mike's graduation party on Sunday, but my sister-in-law said that this was the best thing on the table. I happen to agree. I figured this one out by reading the ingredients on a label and coming up with my own version. I don't have any pictures of it because there isn't any left to photograph!

Tuscan Cheese Spread

6 oz cream cheese (room temperature)
6 oz Gorgonzola cheese (room temperature)
2 tsp pesto
2 Tbsp chopped sun-dried tomatoes (I use the kind that's packed in oil with herbs, but the dry kind is okay, too)
2 Tbsp chopped roasted red bell peppers (I use Merzzetta)
Two or three dashes of salt, pepper, and garlic powder

Mix well, creaming the cheeses together and then add enough mayo to make it a good spreading or dipping consistency. This is great on any kind of chips, crackers, or bread, but I like it best on those little pretzel twists. It's also good on a hamburger or a sandwich.


  1. Thanks for the recipe Cheryl. It's got all my fave ingredients. Too bad there is only one spread in this post LOL. I think wet underwear pics are my fave. Hope you feature my fave wet gauzy guy from MsM.

  2. That recipe sounds mighty tasty.

    And really? Who can argue with underwear week? I certainly would never. Yummy yummy. Who wants to join him in the shower?

  3. Me! A shower in the morning is a good way to start the day. A shower in the moring with wet abs galore is, well, really great.

    The recipe sounds delish...must add to my collection!

  4. Not sure which one you mean, Mary. Send it to me if you have it!

  5. Boy, That sounds Tasty. My son would eat this whole thing himself. He's my Mr. Gorgonzola.
    And Wet Underwear week. Yoohoo. Wet and Wild. That's how I like them.

  6. Oh yes mama saun...you're the best. WET UNDERWEAR WEEK ~ I need a moment alone.

    ...you know I've been deprived...for days, which was just so wrong.

    This wet hunk is a winner on my scale. His wet yummydoodle all there just waiting. I'd probably drown myself in all the excitement;) Woo-wee!

    Oh yes, the Tuscan cheese spread sounds delightful for a snack between bouts:)

    I'm with the rest of the CBEB yah-yah sisters on this one...there can never be too many wet and wild hunks ~ ever!

    Thanks for all the "welcome backs" dudettes. I did read all of the comments made in my absence and it made me feel good that I was missed.

    By the by, I, being older than dirt, LOVE that Dax is not all that young:D Exactly how old is "not all that young"? Not that it really matters since I become (almost) the age of the heroine in whatever story I'm reading;)

  7. Cheryl, that sounds tastey! I'm such an appetizer girl. When we go to places like Chili's or TGIF I always go for appetizers instead of an entre-especially if they have a combo version of different ones! Yummy on the gorgonzola too!

    And yes, the wet hunk is spectacular.

  8. Dax is thirty-three, Nancy. Not quite as old as the other guys in the series, but for Zetithians, like Hobbits, 33 is a young pup!

    I'm with you on that one, Lisa. I just love "party" food!

    Your Mr. Gorgonzola would like this recipe, Donna. It's addicting!

  9. LMAO Cheryl...Any more and "a young pup" is 50+/- but hey, I can work with fantasy:)

  10. So...Anyone around here read J.R. Ward's books? I found an interesting video...


  11. Hey Ana...Big fan here of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. For me, the first book, Covet, in the new series sucked.

    *drool* The video was very HOT!

  12. Here's the link Cheryl. Hope it's okay MsM.


    Try to guess which is my fave picture in the whole wide world.

  13. Bring on the appetizers and wet hunks. And Mr. Gauze Man is the sexiest picture ever Mary!!! Dax is just a Kitten. We can teach him a thing or two. Right Queen Yah-Yah? Why do I all of a sudden hear the Theme Song from The Graduate? Hello Mrs. Robinson. Oh Yes, Ana. I just finished Lover Mine. It took 45 chapters for the Dagger to get out of the Sheath.
    Not like our Cheryl. She turns it on the burners on p. 1. After Cheryl finishes writing Virgin. We need a contest. What chapter will Dax lose his Virginity? LOL!!!

  14. Wet underwear hunk photos are great. The only thing better than wet underwear is seeing them come off.
