Now that Thanksgiving is over, the Christmas holiday season has begun, which means family gatherings and holiday parties galore. Since my family has several celebrations that center around appetizers, I thought I’d start working on a few recipes that we would be able to enjoy. These Bacon Wrapped Cheese Sticks are so easy to make. I tried making them two different ways. First, I used the air fryer and while they turned out okay, I had to cook them much longer and ended up losing quite a bit of the cheese stick since it started to melt. So, I got out my cast iron skillet, added a little olive oil and fried them in hot oil. They got crispy so much faster! I may have cooked mine a few more minutes than necessary, but I prefer my bacon very crispy. They turned out great!

A couple of months ago our dishwasher completely died, and we had to get a new one. Not realizing our knives were still in the old dishwasher, my husband took it down to the road with our trash. We got those knives almost 21 years ago when we first got married, and they were fabulous. I cook a lot so I’ve missed my sharp knives terribly. Since then we have bought a new set, but I wouldn’t even consider them sharp. So, when Chef’s Foundry contacted me to see if they could send me a set of their chef’s knives I was excited to try them out. I figured they had to be better than what I had, but was shocked at how sharp they are. It had been so long since I have used sharp knives I had forgotten how much easier it is to prep food. If you are looking for a set for yourself or a gift these are a fabulous buy!
