Marinated Mozzarella

Give me cheese, and I am one happy lady.
Marinated Mozzarella - Pink Peppercorns Recipe
Seriously. You don’t even know… Or maybe you do. Cheese = good.
Pair it with a loaf of soft, fluffy bread and I couldn’t be happier.
Unless of course you also gave me a bottle of complex, generously bulging tannin-laden red wine. I’m talkin’ a punch me in the face, blow my hair back, mind-ef kind of wine. Like this one.

Oh yes. Death, take me now – I’ll never be happier. 
That’s how I felt when I discovered my Secret Recipe Club Assignment this month – Authentic Suburban Gourmet. Lisa’s blog is everything I love about food – refined cratch, seasonal, real cooking. Oh yeah, and her photos are absolutely drool worthy. 
I honestly haven’t ever been so torn in choosing an SRC recipe…For reals. She has so many great dishes on her blog:
See what I mean? And this is just a pinch of her recipes… Too many to choose!! That being said, I ultimately settled on marinated mozzarella balls. Because as I said before – I love cheese. And bread. And wine. And it was heavenly…. And it had the word “balls” in the title… And I’m apparently 5.
