The Great Cheese Betrayal

An awesome American anecdote about cheese along with some delightful recipes.

Texana's Kitchen

Show of hands—who loves cheese? If you didn’t raise your hand, you should probably quit reading, because the three recipes I am offering today do nothing, if not provide in-your-face cheesiness. How could you not love cheese? Your loyalties are now in question….

If you did raise your hand, you are my friend, and I love you.

When I was kid, however, I only ate two kinds of cheese. American, and that powdered fake Parmesan stuff that was referred to in my house as Stinky Cheese. It went best on Spaghettios.

Once when I was four, I opened my blue Mickey Mouse in Space lunchbox to find, to my horror, a swiss cheese sandwich. Despite the fact that my name was on this blue Mickey Mouse in Space lunchbox, I knew instantly that my lunch had been stolen. There was no way on God’s green earth that my sweet mother would have…

Nut Toffee Glazed St. Endellion from Cornish Country Larder

After discovering the initial idea for glazed grilled brie on Wednesday, I’ve now found the ‘official’ recipe from the makers of St. Endellion, Cornish Country Larder (CCL).

Luxurious Nut Toffee Glazed St. Endellion Dessert

My mission this weekend is to scour the supermarkets and try to find some of this double cream cheese.

Be sure to check out CCL’s other products and recipes too. I’ve already added the goats’ cheeses Gevrik and Village Green to my shopping list.


BCB Flavour Map

Here’s something interesting I found on the British Cheese Board website.

Cheese Flavour Map

The homepage says that it “is designed to help you discover new cheeses based on the flavours that you like.” I couldn’t have said it better myself! Anyway, despite a lack of pictures or actually useful information, clicking on the pins does provide a quick description as well as recommendations for uses and alternatives. I’m currently salivating over this gem of an idea: St. Endellion (a luxury Cornish brie) grilled with a nut & toffee glaze and served as a desert. I’ll be sure to let you know how it goes.

Wild Mushroom, Sage and Fontina Cheese Quesadillas

I’ll definitely be trying this recipe in the near future. Make sure to check out some of the other recipes at Daily Crave.

Daily Crave

I’m reposting this recipe from last year when I told you about how my husband likes to accuse me of having a secret Mexican heritage.  Besides the fact that I go absolutely batty over flavors like cilantro, avocado, jalapenos (or all three combined, like this recipe: cilantro-lime jalapeno chicken salad) my obsession with tortillas is uncanny.  I eat a tortilla at least once a day, wrapped around my morning eggs, and sometimes I’ll have more for lunch or dinner in a quesadilla format.

Quesadillas are one of my favorite go-to meals.  We all face the same challenge of finding the time to cook, myself included.  Many of my days are spent cooking and shopping for clients (and caring for this little lamb chop), leaving me little time for personal cooking.

This is why I think it’s always important to have one or two versatile dishes you could cook in a…
