This Goat Cheese & Gruyere Fondue is a wonderful way to indulge in a special evening! Easy to make and so delicious!
This time of year, I sometimes feel like we get so focused on the big events that we forget to enjoy every day. With an ever-growing to-do list, it is sometimes hard to remember to slow down.
Although I'm not perfect, as I've gotten older I have gotten better at taking time out to enjoy the day-to-day.
The truth is, it doesn’t take much to elevate an evening from ordinary to special.
With three kids, getting out for adult time can be a challenge. A certain Princess doesn’t like it when Mom and Dad leave her with a stranger. Although I was babysitting by the time I was Alex’s age (he’ll be 12 this month), I am not ready to leave her with the boys. Though they are amazing with her, the world is a different place than it was in the 80's and I'm just not there yet.
So, date night at home it is!
Even Wednesday night can be glorious with a little bit of planning.
Sparkling wine makes any evening special, don’t you agree?
If you’ve never made fondue with sparkling wine before, you are in for a treat.
As corny as it may sound, I’m a bit of a fondue expert.
I’ve been making it for family and friends for more than 25 years. I’ve got to say, this Goat Cheese & Gruyere Fondue is one of my favorites.
