I have not done a whisky and cheese pairing for ages.  I have been savoring all the old favourites, so it is high time I try something again. The Wyke cheese selection at Checkers is amazing.  The mature cheddar is a firm favorite in our house and regularly paired with the peatier drams.  A couple of weeks ago I found a Wyke Bonfire cheese which is a smoked mature cheddar with paprika.  It sounded rather delicious, so I decided, this is the perfect cheese to experiment with.

A short couple of weeks ago, it was Mother’s Day.  I wipe my eyes and suddenly it is nearly Father’s Day.  I was spoilt on Mother’s Day with breakfast in bed and a few special gifts.  It was a wonderful day that I could spend with my family.  Now it is my turn to celebrate the amazing father that John is.  I looked around for special items that will make him realize how special he is to us.  Items that convey how much we appreciated him.  One of my favorite places to look for personalized gifts is Netflorist.
