1 can pepper jack soup (Campbells)

I have never seen this jkath. What would be an appropriate substitute here? Mushroom with pepper jack cheese? or Cheddar cheese soup with jack cheese?

You can also use Campbell's other cheese soup (I think it's Nacho Cheese) -
you know how campbell's is - they've got about a bizillion different soups!

jkath, your son doesn't like cheese? The poor kid must think that he's living in a cheese store! What brand of Fontina do you buy? I bought some last week and the only brand they had was Denmark's Finest.

Otter! You're back!
I thought of you the other day when I bought some boursin with garlic & herbs :)

As for fontina (or any other for that matter)...I don't go for brands, so much as where I buy it (Whole Foods, Trader Joes & a wonderful Italian Deli).

and yeah, my older son does think cheese is awful. He loves pizza, and doesn't mind the mozerella, but even if I put it on anything else, I get "the look", followed by "do I hafta eat THAT? Of course, the little one would rather have a grilled cheese sandwich over most other foods....go figure...

I got some cookbooks for Christmas and spent January and February trying new things - and gaining 8 pounds. I've lost 3 of them and am working on the other 5. We don't have much variety where I live, so I have to settle for what's available. I'd bought a brand of Fontina and liked it. It wasn't there this time and I couldn't remember the name so I couldn't ask for it. I'm hoping I also like Denmark's Finest.

I'm sure you'll like the new fontina too - fontina is just wonderful!

I'm looking into figuring out a good cheese sauce - one that's quite mild, possibly with a hint of nutmeg & diced portabellos in it. any ideas?

Mine came out awesome. My dad liked it so well that he is demanding my mother make it for him. Wrapping that paper-thin Prosciutto is a pain, but the end result makes it worth the effort. I added some Fontina and it melted just right. Hope yours came out well.

Cool. Thanks jkath. For anyone looking for our former asparagus discussion I moved it to veggies.
