36th Annual Artists’ Workshop Instructor: Betty Brown

36th Annual Artists’ Workshop at Sea View Inn
Pawleys Island, South Carolina
Instructor: Betty Brown
April 25 – May 2, 2014

It’s time to put the Artists’ Week Workshop at Sea View Inn on your calendar. The annual workshop continues with its 36th year of combining great painting locations with gorgeous spring weather. The charming shabby chic inn with three meals a day of low country cooking adds to the ambience for a most enjoyable workshop. Artists’ Week began in 1978. Betty Brown first studied there and became instructor for Artists’ Week in 2002, turning another page in the history of art at Sea View Inn.

Get your grills ready for Palmetto Cheeseburgers

We must admit that we’re not going to miss winter. It’s been too long and too cold. There’s one lonely piece of cooking equipment that’s been outside patiently waiting for the warm air and sunny skies to arrive…the grill! Not only does food on the grill taste amazing, you keep from making the kitchen dirty. One less mess to deal with is a bonus. The grill adds a wide array of possibilities to the dinner menu, our favorite by far is the hamburger.  Whether you dollop a heaping tablespoon of Palmetto Cheese on top or stuff the cheesy goodness inside of the burger, you’ll never go back to sliced cheese.

Raise your spatulas high, it’s time to light the grill!!

Palmetto Cheese Deviled Eggs

HAP_2603It’s Easter time and nothing is tastier than deviled eggs, especially when they have Palmetto Cheese mixed in! We used half Palmetto Cheese with Bacon and half Palmetto Cheese with Jalapenos in this recipe. We also shaped two 12 ounce tubs of Palmetto Cheese into an egg and decorated with Pepperidge Farm Goldfish.  To make shaping the egg easier, scoop out the cheese onto your serving tray, cover with saran wrap and shape. This makes the whole process less messy. Pepperidge Farm has new colorful Goldfish for Easter that we purchased at Target.  The tray is finished off with shredded carrots, carrot sticks and fresh rosemary. This is a fun project to make with the kids and something that guests will enjoy devouring!

Palmetto Cheese Stuffed Deviled Eggs
6 Tablespoons Palmetto Cheese, Original, Jalapeno or Bacon
6 eggs, hard boiled
1/4 cup Mayonnaise salt and pepper to taste

Cut hard boiled eggs in half, remove yolks and place into a bowl. Place egg whites onto a serving dish. Mash yolks with a fork until fine. Add mayo and mix until incorporated. Add Palmetto Pimento Cheese and mix until thoroughly incorporated together. Scoop mixture into a pastry bag or gallon-size food storage bag with one small corner cut off. Pipe mixture onto egg whites. Garnish with a little southern sprinkle of paprika. Variations: Add finely chopped olives, jalapenos or bacon to give your eggs an added flavor.

Palmetto Shrimp Crostinis

Palmetto Cheese Shrimp1 Baguette or French Bread, 10-12 slices 1 inch thick
6 oz Palmetto Cheese with Jalapenos (Original or Bacon can also be used)
12 oz – 71-90 P&D Raw Shrimp
1/4 cup Red Pepper, small diced
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tbsp fresh Basil, chopped
1/4 cup Mozzarella Cheese or Parmesan Cheese

Preheat oven to 350F. Slice bread into 1 inch thick slices with a serrated knife.
On a sheet pan, line up slices of sliced bread and bake for 10 minutes. This will keep the bread from getting soggy later on. Set aside the pan after you pull it from the oven, but leave the bread on the pan.

In a saute pan, add olive oil and red peppers and saute for 5 minutes. Add the shrimp and basil and cook for approx. 7 more minutes or until the shrimp is fully cooked.
Palmetto Cheese Appetizers Shrimp

On a slice of bread, spread 1 Tablespoon of Palmetto Cheese. Top with the shrimp mixture and sprinkle the tops with Mozzarella or Parmesan Cheese. Bake in the oven for 5-7 minutes or until all cheese has melted.

These are great as an appetizer for dinner or served on a tray at a party. You can also substitute crab meat for the shrimp.
