Everyone in my family is a cheese lover and we have at least three varieties in the fridge at any given time. Right now, it’s mozzarella, Monterey Jack and medium cheddar. Add to that the Bega cheese sticks and the jar of Cheez Weez. For us, cheese is a sandwich filler, a base for a spread or dressing, a topping for pasta, a topping for plain toast and an any-time snack. What is it about cheese that makes it irresistible to kids and adults alike? The creaminess? The melt-in-the mouth sensation? The gooey stickiness when it’s melted? For whatever reason, cheese seems to be popular all year ’round. I’ve compiled four photos contributed by four different readers to include in this very cheese-y entry.
Next, we go to what is probably the most-tried recipe in this blog — baked macaroni with creamy cheese topping.
Let’s start with Phynkee who baked a lot of macaroni for their New Year’s eve party. She’s made this dish so many times already. View her comments and more baked mac photos.
Marie from Abu Dhabi’s version is above and she says, “This was such a hit with my cousins… I thought it will be wasted since I thought the cream topping was a little starchy but what can I do they simply loved it and was begging me to cook again. I paired it up with French bread topped with softened butter with minced garlic.”
