Say CHEESE on Food Porn Friday

How many ways can you say cheese? How about 1,778 ways? No joke. According to Cheese.com, you can search their database containing 1778 kinds of cheese by names, by country of origin, by kind of milk that is used to produce it, or by texture.

April is National Grilled Cheese Month. Typically cheese such as Pepper Jack, Muenster, Sharp Cheddar, Provolone and American cheese are creamy yet great for melting between two slices of bread. However, that does not stop you from combining different types of cheese and creating your own innovative cheesy sandwich concoction.

Check out these mouthwatering grilled cheese sandwiches from The California Milk Advisory Board. Today’s tasty features include The Havana, The Tuscan, and The REAL Californian grilled cheese sandwiches. The California Milk Advisory Board (CMAB), an instrumentality of the California Department of Food and Agriculture, is funded by the state’s more than 1300 dairy families. As we honor National Grilled Cheese Month, prepare a delightful melt in your mouth sandwich of warm, gooey, cheesy goodness.

Pecan-Crusted Chicken on Food Porn Friday

I remember growing up how excited I was to visit my grandfather and get my hands on a bushel of those ginormous pecans that fell from his pecan trees. Those long brown shells held some of the biggest, sweetest and meatiest pecans I ever tasted. Nowadays, I have not found any pecans that fit the size or caliber of my memories of those Ninja pecans my grandfather grew.

So today, on Food Porn Friday, as we celebrate National Pecan Day, which by the way has been celebrated on April 14 since 1996, I decided to feature this healthy recipe, Pecan-Crusted Chicken from EatingWell Magazine. This recipe coats tender chicken breasts with buttery pecans flavored with spicy chipotle and zesty orange.

This recipe only takes 30 minutes to prepare and is ready in 30 minutes. In the picture, it is served with spinach salad. Depending on your tastes, you can modify a number of certain ingredients to your choosing. What a wickedly delicious way to eat a healthy meal with only 270 calories per serving.

Today is Food Porn Friday and we are celebrating the good ole potato. National Tater Day is observed annually on March 31. Tater Day started way back in the early 1840s with the trading and selling of sweet potatoes. It is the oldest continuous trade day in the United States.

According to the International Potato Center, there are more than 4,000 varieties of native potatoes, mostly found in the Andes. There are also over 180 wild potato species, although too bitter to eat, their important biodiversity includes natural resistances to pests, diseases, and climatic conditions.

Here’s an easy yummy recipe, Cheesy Bacon-Tater Tot Pie recipe, courtesy of the Food Network Kitchen that takes only 45 minutes to prepare and serves 8. All you need are a few simple ingredients.

Food Porn Friday: 33 Flavors Day of Baskin-Robbins

33 Flavors Day, Baskin-Robbins, Ice Creme

1945 was the year that two brothers-in-law, Burton “Burt” Baskin and Irvine “Irv” Robbins shared their dream of creating an innovative ice creme store that would become the neighborhood family gathering spot. They started out in separate ventures at the advice of Irv’s father. In 1953 however, they dropped their separate identities of Snowbird and Burton’s and became Baskin-Robbins.

BaskinRobbins is the world’s largest chain of ice cream specialty shops. Baskin-Robbins creates and markets innovative, premium ice cream, specialty frozen desserts, and beverages, providing quality and value to consumers at nearly 7,300 retail shops in nearly 50 countries. Headquartered in Canton, Mass., Baskin-Robbins is part of the Dunkin’ Brands Group, Inc. family of companies.

The company is known for its “31 flavors” slogan, but their ice cream flavors have grown incredibly and product availability may vary by location. The first flavor I tried and still love is Pralines ‘n Cream.

So today, March 3, we celebrate the cool sensation of Baskin-Robbins “33 Flavors Day.” You don’t need a scorching hot day in order to enjoy this cool delight!

Most commonly served with salsa, chile con queso, guacamole, cheese dips or other dips, tortilla chips are a popular snack or hors d’oeuvres consumed for practically any occasion. Today, we celebrate this crunchy food item on National Tortilla Chip Day.

Tortilla chips have always been considered as a Mexican food, known as tostados. They were first mass-produced in Los Angeles during the late 1940′s and it is reported that they were made popular by Rebecca Webb Carranza as a way to use the misshapen tortillas that were rejected from the automated tortilla manufacturing machine, used in her and her husband’s factory. Carranza received the Golden Tortilla Award in 1994 for her contribution to the Mexican food industry.

If you’re looking for a festive recipe to make and serve for dinner, why not try this Tortilla Chip Casserole we found on Myrecipes.com. It only takes 1 hour to make and serves 6.

Happy #NationalTortillaChipDay on #FoodPornFriday!
