The Kiss
About this Cook
I have always been a shy cook, anxious to please, but surrounded by sisters who were totally at home in the kitchen. In my empty nest years, I have become more adventurous, and I am enjoying cooking for the first time in years. Rave reviews keep me encouraged.
My favorite things to cook
FRESH things, whole foods, sweet and savory. I also love to bake cookies, pies and breads, totally fattening stuff!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Scandinavian origins, but reared in Texas, so Mexican and Texas style cooking feels like home, too. With the exception of OKRA, I have never met a veggie I did not like.
My cooking triumphs
Alfredo sauce, grilled chicken salad, cinnamon rolls, barbecued chicken
My cooking tragedies
Meatloaf confuses me, disappoints my guests, and generally enrages me. Sometimes my pecan pie is runny, and sometimes it has a burnt taste. YUCK!

I made this recipe in a very small amount, just in case. I served it with German rye toast points, but wish I had used Dark Beefsteak Rye instead. Also, I think the recipe could benefit by a sprinkle of caraway seeds. Overall, a very satisfying hot cheese dip with healthy ingredients. By the way, I ate it all, and plan to serve it at my next gathering. If you don't like sauerkraut, don't bother!
