The Marilyn Monroe of Mozzarella
burrata has summer lovin’ written all over her.
Simply a ball of mozzarella stuffed with cream-soaked mozzarella shreds,
she’s so voluptuous that her name means “buttered” in Italian.
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.
These tiny little sweet peppers look just like cherry tomatoes.
You’ll find them in the pickle section of the grocery store, sold in jars and preserved in vinegar or oil.
They’re adorable little peppers, with a petite frame, crisp texture, and beautiful bright red color.
You can slice them up for sandwiches or toss them with pasta.
Or you can stuff them full of chive goat cheese,
drown them in olive oil, and
pop them one by one.

Special thanks to Cypress Grove for sending over a sample of me to the Cheese Sex Death headquarters!
Shakshuka is a playful little dish of eggs baked in a spiced tomato sauce.
It’s a cheap, easy, and delightful skillet meal that tastes especially fantastic when showered with feta.
I added some kale to round out the meal, but it’s really all about those tender yolks.
They’re begging for a triangle of warm pita to pierce their fragile skins,
so they can swirl into the cheesy sauce like lava.

There’s only about 30 minutes of real effort involved,
but you’ll feel like a master chocolatier.

It’s a swirl of sexy – the nut butter sinks into the melting Manchego
while the voluptuous figs lay sprawled out, cradling the oozing silk.
