Cheese to Please! Review with images

AdvantagesTasty, easy to make recipes using cheese!

DisadvantagesIf you hate cheese you're stuffed!

"Cheese & Leek Cakes. This is a very tasty and easy to make dish which works well as a vegetarian starter or as part of a main meal. The white stilton with apricots is a good cheese to use because the sweetness of the apricots gives an interesting taste - the crumbly texture of the cheese also goes well too. You can try it with other varieties of cheese if you like, but this is MY favourite! I get my stilton locally from my cheese shop, or direct ..." Read review

Feta Feast

Advantagesyummy, easy, vegetarian, filling and healthy

Disadvantagesnone that I can see of...

"Feta Feast Feta cheese is usually thought as an ingredient for salads, but it's also delicious in hot dishes. Here are a few of my favourite recipes to eat warm. They're all low budget, fairly easy to prepare (though the tarts are not especially quick to make) and suitable for vegetarians. ~.~.~ TOMATOES STUFFED WITH FETA ~.~.~ Ingredients: 2 large tomatoes 100g of feta 3 tablespoons of breadcrumbs 1 medium onion, finely chopped 1 ..."

Good old Cheese Straws.

AdvantagesThe best you'll ever taste

DisadvantagesYou'll have to make some more.

"...please bring lots of your cheese straws....Every time I get an invite to a party or special occasion that's always added. Since the age of about 10 I have been famous for my cheese straws. So I've decided to share. Firstly I cannot take credit for the recipe. At the tender age of eleven my mum won a book at school. Being the late 50's typically the book was all about the kitchen and explains everything from how to wash up in the correct order to ..." Read review

Polenta Cheese Gratin

AdvantagesA light tasy dish! And it's also vegetarian!

DisadvantagesNone I can think of

"...an Italian's diet is cheese! Cheese is nearly always found somewhere in a dish and always served after a meal (or it is in my family!!). Cheese is just as important as meat and plays a vital role throughout the regions of Italy. The dish/ recipe I will be reviewing is also a vegetarian dish which is great and the main base of the dish is polenta. Polenta is made from boiled cornmeal and is incredibly popular throughout Europe. You can cook polenta ..." Read review

Its simple, versatile, looks nice and is cheap to make plus its easily ..." Read review

Just Can't Help Making A Raclette!!

AdvantagesDeliciously Cheesy, Perfect for Cold Nights!

DisadvantagesCan be hard to source...

"...RACLETTE? Well, as an incorrigible cheese fetishist, I would be extremely hard-pressed to nominate any variety as an absolute favourite. However, with wintry evenings drawing in, Raclette really does come into its own. Furthermore, since both of my local supermarkets suddenly ceased to stock it recently (to my horror!!) I felt it incumbent upon me to do what little I can to raise its profile on these shores! BACKGROUND: Raclette has a long tradition ..." Read review

For a special occasion

AdvantagesLots of cheese

DisadvantagesNone that I can find

"...dad's favorite recipe, he loves cheese and when I was still at home I was always trying to cook different things for my dad. Mum and my little brother Neil don't like to try new food. But myself and dad love to try new food. This is a bit different and would be good for a special occasion. I will get started then. Ingredients 1 whole camembert (100-150 grams) 1 egg beaten 60 grams dried breadcrumbs 100 grams apricot jam half the juice of ..." Read review
