Everything Old Is New Again -- Part Two

Boursin cheese brings back so many memories for me. We loved it in the 70's, and the marvelous mixture of fresh cheese blended with garlic and herbs is still a delicious treat. Boursin is a soft cheese, easily spread on crackers for an informal snack. And it's a fabulous alternative to traditional cheeses on hamburgers.

Boursin is ridiculously high in fat -- 12 grams in 2 tablespoons, but then, what cheese isn't high in fat? It runs between $6.50 and $7.50 depending on where you buy it. Be sure to take it out of the refrigerator about an hour before serving to fully appreciate the flavor. And trick someone with this little bit of trivia. The box says it's "Gournay Cheese." That's not a typo. It's named after a small town in France.

Five cupcakes for memories and Boursin.
