Author Notes

This cheese souffle is impressive, but deceptive. You make it in a cuisinart. I call it The American Way Cheese Souffle. Leave it to us to find the short cut. It is perfect for entertaining since it is easy and very popular. I have made this many times, and the bowl is always scrapped clean. It can be served with a thinly sliced baguette, but it goes just as well with homemade tortilla chips. Note: Served with a green salad, this dish also makes a lovely supper. Cheers. —Waverly

Review
Waverly used to be a lawyer and is now a mother 24/7. She has made a commitment to cooking for her family and absolutely loves it even when her family does not. She is teaching them, one meal at a time, to enjoy wholesome homemade food. She abhors processed food but recognizes its insidious nature and accepts the fact that her children will occasionally get some Skittles, Doritos, or the like. Her philosophy and hope is that if she teaches them well at home, they will prefer wholesome healthy foods when they go out into the world without her.
