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.
