I’m not a big fan of New Years so I decided to have a low key night this year. My friend Megan (I collect friends that have the same name as me.. it’s weird) came down to visit me and we decided to watch a bunch of movies and have fondue. And let me tell you.. it was sooo good.

The last time I tried to make fondue was 3 years ago on New Years and I definitely put a bit too much wine in it… not a good outcome. But this time it was absolutely perfect and a great way to start 2010.

The thing I love about cheese fondue is the many different things you can use for dippers. I used broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, french bread, pumpernickle bread, steak and green apples for my fondue, but you can use whatever your heart desires.

This recipe is from an old hand-written recipe from one of my mom’s cookbooks!
