Check It Out: More cheese reads, please!

Cheese, please — that’s what I say whenever I see a piece of cheese. I do try to eat it in moderation, but it takes a lot of willpower to not eat cheese every day. My name is Jan, and I am a cheese hound.

I may have to indulge in this favorite food a little more often this month as it happens to be American Cheese Month. Personally, I think there should a National Cheese Year, but a month is what I have, so I’ll make it work. Maybe cheese isn’t your thing, and I get it (I know someone who eats only mozzarella cheese — all other cheeses are out). If, however, cheese makes you smile, get ready to smile a lot when you check out this week’s dairylicious reading list. Love cheese but unable to eat dairy? No worries, you can still enjoy American Cheese Month by checking out “One-Hour Dairy-Free Cheese” by Claudia Lucero or “This Cheese is Nuts!” by Julie Piatt.

No doubt about it, we’re in the cheese.
