Scone Fan

If you’re a fan of scones like we are, you will love these scones. Made with sun dried tomatoes, smoked sea salt and smoky Gouda cheese. Doesn’t get much better than that! We like to serve smoky sun dried tomato scones with soup or stew but they are super served alongside any meal. Make a scone sandwich by cutting your scone in half and filling it with your favorite sliced meat or cheese. My hubby loves smoky sun dried tomato scones with his weekend eggs:)

Gouda Cheese 

Have lived in America’s Dairyland all of my long life, it would be fair to say the I know a thing or two about good cheese. Not a day goes by that I don’t eat some form of cheese. It’s nothing for me to walk into the kitchen, open up the refrigerator, take out a block of cheese, slice off a chunk and eat it. I can drive south down on Hwy. 32 a few miles and stop at G G’s Cheese Mart.

If you want to try an award-winning Gouda cheese, than you have to got to try Marieke Gouda. A Farmstead Gouda Cheese that is handcrafted with passion. Marieke Gouda is Holland’s Family Cheese located in Thorp, Wisconsin. It’s simply the best Gouda, ever. I try to purchase cheese at any of the many cheese factories dotted throughout Wisconsin. I’m so lucky to live in a state where fresh cheese is made practically in my own back yard.
