Say Cheese

According to the USDA, Americans eat over 30 pounds of cheese per year. Mozzarella is the most popular in the US, cheddar the most popular in the UK. Cheese trends go in and out of style, too. Remember baked brie? As you travel the world, or even your own country, there are regional specialties. And today, there are artisanal cheeses being made in every corner of every state. High quality, small batch cow, goat, and sheep cheeses abound, so it’s not just slices of Swiss or American that are topping our sandwiches.

There are hundreds and hundreds of recipes with cheese in the title on ReciFoto. I can’t even begin to tell how many more have cheese in the recipe but not the title. Here’s a morsel of our users cheese recipes. As usual, our bias is toward recipes from decades past.

Make Room for Mushrooms

I am a huge fan of mushrooms. There aren’t many dessert recipes with mushrooms , but they work in every part of a meal. There are great mushroom hors d’oeuvres, soups, pastas, sides, and entrees. There are hundreds of recipes that ReciFoto users have added, so, I’m not alone in my love of them. You can find an incredible array of mushrooms at your farmers market and even at your grocery store. If you can’t find the type of mushroom called for in a recipe, you can probably find something similar to use instead. Sometimes, the type of mushroom is fungible (sorry, I couldn’t resist). Here’s a sampling from Recifoto.

Let’s Have Cake!

It’s my birthday today, so cake is on my mind. I just did a search on ReciFoto, and there are hundreds and hundreds of cake recipes. People like cake. My own personal favorite is kind of birthday cake is chocolate, but as long as the cake is shared with people I love, it really doesn’t matter what kind it is.

A couple of years ago I bought a box of recipe cards that included a bunch from Rockwood’s Chocolate Bits, which is now defunct. Think of chocolate bits as the equivalent of chocolate chips. Their factory is now lofts for hipsters in Brooklyn, I think. But the recipe cards are pretty cool. The other two recipes were from a book that my mom and other members of her generation in our family used to make birthday cakes for us when we were little. Enjoy!

Hello Zucchini

Zucchini are taking our local farmers market by storm. Here’s a fun zucchini fact: they are actually a fruit, but we usually treat them as a vegetable. Perhaps, this dual nature is what accounts for zucchini’s culinary versatility. You can make an entire multi-course meal centered around zucchini, including, soup, salad, bread, sides, entrees, and dessert. Here’s a small sample of the vast trove of zucchini recipes you can find on the ReciFoto app.
