The brie baker used for Sun Valley Baked Brie. We bought one for ourselves and one for our friends - a perfect hostess gift.

I’ve been making RV Pimiento Cheese for years – one of my go-to recipes. It’s called that because the first time I had it was on a deluxe RV as we were barreling down I-65 on our way to JazzFest in New Orleans. Many adventures ensued, some of which I choose to remember whenever I make this recipe.

Tonight I’m making Sun Valley Baked Brie, so named as we first had it earlier this summer during an amazing trip to Idaho. We had purchased an amazing brie baker at Summerfest in June in Atlanta from potter Greg Johnson of Pottery for Living, who makes beautiful and functional items.

We were staying with friends, who also had other friends with them so there were six of us. The brie was a big hit but is so rich, it lasted for days.

Sun Valley Baked Brie

Buy one round brie that fits in the brie baker. Costco makes a perfect one.  Top with honey, toasted almonds and dried cranberries. (Craisins – my new obsession that I put on everything! Also purchased by the bushel at Costco.)

Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. Serve with Wheat Thins flatbread or other plain cracker.

Drink: We were enjoying La Creme chardonnay, one of my favorites. I purchased a few bottles at, where else? Costco!
