Blue Cheese & Lemon Compound Butter

Raven Higheagle


I confess I have a serious love affair with butter. Oil is called for in a baking recipe? Bah…use ghee instead! Oil in sautéed vegetables? No thank you, I use butter instead. Really, I use butter every single place I can unless it’s a ridiculous notion to do so. Butter is just plain better, no?
