Cheese Ball Recipe and Party Ceramics

New Glaze called River Rock. This piece would be perfect to take to a Super Bowl Party. I will keep this one and make a few more for the shop.

Classic Cheese Ball


  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • finely grated cheddar cheese
  • Worchestershire sauce
  • garlic powder
  • pecans

1.Blend room temperature cream cheese . Mix until smooth. 2. Add in the other ingredients ( cheddar cheese, Worchestershire sauce, and garlic powder. 3. On a piece of plastic wrap, roll the mixture into a ball. The cream cheese mixture will be very sticky after it is combined. Do your best to pull it together into a ball like shape before putting in on the plastic wrap. Then pull the plastic wrap around the mixture and once it is completely covered, roll it into a ball within the plastic wrap.4.Chill the cheeseball. Put the cheeseball into the refrigerator for 8 hours. 5. Roll in pecans and serve.

February Pottery

Sometimes my production timing is a little off. I got these love items into my booth February 15.

I am experimenting with glazes and designs to create a mountain landscape.

Spoon rests
Incense Holders
Microwave Bacon Cookers. I am experimenting with a few new glazes. The yellow and green are very retro looking. It reminds me of the colors of the Fiesta Dinnerware.


  1. Dear Susan and Charlie,

    Roger and I are SO impressed with your business, recipes, pottery, pickles, etc. We want to order many things that you produce, especially pottery and pickles. We are so excited for you. We send you wonderful wishes in your new success. Can you send me an order form to our home address?

    Love you,
    Kathy and Roger Messinger

    PS. I’ll send a message about the club you belong to with the Lausanne girls. My phone number is 901-821-4336.


    • Kathy, So glad you checked out my blog. Charlie is the cook in our family, so the recipes are his recipes. They are free for you to print off. When I retired in 2015, we turned our garage into a pottery studio for me. I sell my work at a manor in Gallatin which has been turned into a breakfast and lunch restaurant and gift shop with 50 vendors. I have a booth there and unfortunately do not sell online. Shipping is so expensive now. If you travel at all, once it warms up, we could meet in Jackson,Tn or somewhere between Nashville and Memphis. I think you would enjoy our Lausanne Book Club. We usually talk about the book about 5 minutes and just chat the other 55 minutes. The girls in the group are Mary Swihart, Jill Williams, Ruth Klaener, Pam Cox , Janet Bogle, and LaGrange Griffin. We meet on Zoom the second Wednesday each month at 6:00 p.m. If I have your email, I can send you a link to join.So good to hear from you
