If there’s one thing the Frisky staff can never stop gushing over, it’s brie. Is there ever a time you’re not craving brie? Here are 14 recipes for those days when shoving a full wedge, rind and all, in your mouth at 2 a.m. simply won’t do (though of course, that’s always an acceptable option).
I like donuts, I like croissants, and I like yellow cheeses. I do not like them all in the same place.
The cooking blog Oh, Bite It! took Dominique Ansel’s recipe for cronuts and decided that the right thing to do would be to put Kraft American cheese slices in the cronuts instead of filling them with great things like vanilla rose ganache.

I just had the most amazing sandwich. One of my favorite local lunch spots, Spreads, is featuring a Sheep’s Milk Ricotta Sandwich with roasted tomatoes and olive tapenade.

No wonder so many Italian dishes contain it! Check out these 10 unique ricotta recipes and try adding a spoonful to your next sandwich.

Care to join me? To get started, let’s drool over six of the finest cheese shops in the U.S. and Europe, shall we?

It’s one syllable.
It’s a dairy product.
It should not be anyone’s name.

Dear Cheese Man,
Hello there. I’d like to start off by saying that we ride the same subway line. Why have I never seen you before? I see the man who panhandles with a live snake, the performance art clown and the lady who plays the “Chicken Dance” on her recorder ALL THE TIME.
