C is for Cheese

Cheese. It can be smooth and creamy or tart or spicy with a different texture.

Growing up, I donít remember many different types of cheeses. Velveeta was used for sandwiches and we all laughed about Swiss having holes, but we didnít buy much of it. The stuff in the can was good for picnics because it was portable and you didnít have to keep it cool. But that was the extent of it.

Now, Iím in cheese heaven with Feta, Swiss, Bleu, Colby, and Goat cheese to name a few. Itís interesting how I can make the same recipe and by changing the type of cheese I incorporate, it changes the flavor.

I always thought Parmesan was the stuff in the refrigerator section that came in the green package that you shook out Ė how amazing you can shred your own. And then I learned that marinara sauce has Parmesan in itÖ.life is good.

Cheese is great for a snack, a treat, and even for a meal. Seeing a deli tray with different cheeses is like having a buffet! And imagine having some grapes and some cheese. Wow, thatís almost better than dessert!

I know there are cheeses out there I havenít tried, but Iím readyÖI have some crackers just waiting!

    If you can get ahold of it, you should try St. Andre's. I don't generally like brie, but this one is fantastic.

    Foodie? You grew up eating Velveeta on a sandwich?! I'd have never guessed! My earliest memory is sitting in a yellow metal high chair eating sliced beets and cheese. Gotta have good cheese!

    Bulgarian sirene (сиренеWink is amazing if you get the right kind... we prefer the cow, but they also have sheep and goat sirene that can be excellent in some dishes. They are selling it all over the place here, but it's probably hard to find in the States. When I was in Switzerland last month I enjoyed a cheese with several different herbs blended into it, and it was breathtakingly good. Unfortunately I can't recall the name, though! Argh. I should have put the wrapper in my pocket as insurance that I wouldn't forget, or something.

    I LOVE cheese too!
    I as a little girl I used to (and still do, actually) eat spoonfuls of grated parm. Hehe..
