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.

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.
