This may seem like a silly question, but I'm really serious ... Does your family seem to have cheese at every family reunion you have? Because I've recently discovered that on both my husband's and my husband's side, there is literally no family get-together that isn't about cheese. (Sad faces of my lactose-intolerant family. Yes, we are such idiots.)

Today's recipe for blue cheese balls is a variation of the classic cheese ball recipe my family has made for years. It consists of cream cheese, flavorful cheddar cheese, and blue cheese mixed into a flavorful, hearty cheese ball with a creamy texture. You can also find finely diced celery inside and rolled in pecans, which adds flavor and a hint of crispness.

Making cheese balls is the easiest. Just mix your cheese and seasonings together, then use plastic wrap to keep your hands from falling apart, shape the cheese into a ball, and wrap it up to cover it. Put it in the refrigerator until you're ready for it. Just before serving, roll the cheese balls into the chopped pecans and parsley.

This cheese combo goes well with wine and is the perfect starter when you have guests for dinner or a party. For the best blue cheese flavor, I recommend making this at least the day before so the flavors really blend. It keeps well in the refrigerator for a few days.
