Greetings from cold and snowy Colorado! We're renting a house up in the mountains right now, so I apologize for not being active here or on my social channels lately. We'll be home soon and I can't wait to catch up with you all when I get back (and show you the incredible view from my office window right now!) I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving with your loved ones yesterday, and if you're headed out to do a little shopping today, I hope you all stay warm and safe while bargain hunting. Today officially kicks off the Christmas season for me, and even though we have one major holiday behind us now, there's still a lot of entertaining to be had for the next 6 weeks. When we were in Frankenmuth last month, I made my traditional stop to The Cheese Haus and spent almost my entire savings on specialty cheeses. I even bought a chocolate cheese because that just seemed like something that needed to be tried. When I got home, I immediately took to my favorite source for new recipes, Golden Blossom Honey, to find great holiday recipes that included cheese. I found this Stuffed Figs Appetizer and knew that I was going to be in trouble because this sounded like an appetizer that I would want to keep the entire batch all for myself. 
 
Stuffed Figs Appetizer
 
I really love figs this time of the year, but like I've mentioned in the past, we don't have fresh figs available to us in the Midwest. So, this recipe worked out great for me because it calls for dried figs, which we have in abundance here. Any recipe that includes wine, figs, and cheese automatically gets my seal of approval, but after I had these assembled and taste tested, they were for sure a winner in my book. And by book I mean these will be a holiday staple in my make shift recipe book every Christmas from here on out. I do have to point out that I ended up not cutting the figs in half as the recipe states as I felt that they weren't plump enough to really hold the filling then. However, I did use my thumb to indent the top of the fig and scooped the cheese filling into the cavity that was created that way. That ended up making these the most perfect two-bite appetizers that are going to be a hit all season long.

8 dried Calimyrna figs, stemmed (look for them in the bulk section of your supermarket)
1 cup white wine
1 tablespoon GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
3 tablespoons mascarpone cheese
3 tablespoons Gorgonzola cheese, finely crumbled
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
1 tablespoon GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY, to drizzle

  1. Sounds like an winning appetizer indeed. Unlike all the snow in view. Blah. But I guess if it is only a view for a few days may not be sooo bad. I guess. hmmm snow.

    1. Came back to Indiana and no snow. My daughter isn't a fan of the snow either and idk if she thought she'd get less there, but she's definitely getting more than us!

  2. We had a sad holiday as my oldest and all her kids have RSV, so our guest list was cut in half. My husband planned some TikTok games, which everyone here seemed to enjoy,

    1. Oh, no! That stinks! I heard that a lot though. Thanksgiving was ruined for quite a few on my Facebook list due to illness. Something was definitely going around then!

  3. Such gorgeous photos, dahlink, lovely plate and colour combo!

    Look at them, renting a chalet up in the snowy mountains of Colorado like billionaires in this recession LOL Do not forget to visit Mike Baxter and the family LOL

    It has been cold here as well, and we were without electricity for two days, six hours each day, and it appears it will happen again on Monday, it is insane in this cold.

    1. It's funny, I was foolishly looking around trying to figure out what kind of neighborhood the Baxters would live in. I'm pretty sure their house was a 2 million dollar or more house because fugly little ones were almost a million in Denver and Boulder!

      Why are they cutting your power, deary? Our heater broke while we were in Colorado, so I know how freaking cold the house can get with no heat for several hours.

  5. I love to go to the Chees Haus!! My son texted me when he was in Frankenmuth. He said he and his dad opted not to go into Bronner's and I think my heart stopped, lol. I love that place!! Glad you're in Colorado with your family. Hoping you had the best of the best of holidays, and hurrah for a good office view!! Now about the appetizer... what better treat for the holidays to feel special than stuffed figs!!! You've outdone yourself with this one.

    1. How do you go to Frankenmuth and NOT go to Bronner's!? Allison and I only had like 15 minutes before we had to be at our booth (which was 5 minutes down the road from Bronner's) but we still stopped in and power walked through. I think it's a sin to skip it. Or at least drive through the parking lot and admire all of the holiday statues and decor.
