Make love to cheese
with your words
Do the velvet pockets in a wedge of bleu make your body tremble?
Does the sight of a ripe, oozing brie make your panties wet?
in one heartfelt haiku.
3 hand-selected cheeses from Cheesemonger Box.
You’re going to fall in love with this macaroni and cheese for three reasons:
it’s infused with sage and nutmeg, it’s made with “butter cheese,”
and it only requires 1 pot and 30 minutes to make.
There’s no better time to eat carbs coated in cheese than in the dead of winter.
This recipe is really no more difficult or tedious than boxed mac,
but it’s a way bigger upgrade.
January is not an ideal time to go on a diet. It’s cold AF outside,
and all I want to do is comfort myself with melted cheese and carbs.
I definitely do not want a kale salad or a quinoa stirfry.
I want some hot, gooey lasagna and I want it now.
Ain’t nothing wrong with that.
Just cause you’re trying to eat healthier doesn’t mean
you have to miss out on the sensual joys of food.
Cheese makes eating healthy so much more enjoyable.
Besides, cheese is a superfood too.
Cheesy loaded sweet potatoes are one of my favorite things to eat in the wintertime.
Blankets of melty cheese smothering hot, velvety orange flesh–it’s almost too seductive to be healthy.
You can stuff them with anything your heart desires, too.
Here are a few of my favorite flavor combinations.
I love cheesecake. But sometimes I want a little
something more than basic cream-cheese filling.
I’m always craving that real, salty, cheesy flavor.
Goat cheese brings the complexity that too many cheesecakes lack.
It’s tangier, lighter, and less sweet, especially when perfumed with lemon zest and vanilla,
which really highlight that fresh, cheesy flavor.
This is the only holiday appetizer recipe you need:
sweet dates stuffed with Montchevre truffle goat cheese and
cloaked in bacon, juicy with smoky, porky fat.
Not only will they overshadow all of the other Thanksgiving foods,
but they’ll also make everyone feel a little more grateful.
