For the longest time I always bought the pre-shredded cheese at the market. It was always just more convenient and just easier.
But lately I have started buying it in blocks and shredding it as needed. I find that I have a bit more longevity to the cheese as well as it takes up a little less room in the fridge. It is really not that hard to shred some cheese on a whim and use it right when I need it.
I also like the fact that I can create my own cheese blends for cooking. A little Havarti, Cheddar, Parmesan… Its almost like making your own spice blend.
I think I am just in love with cheese. I never really was before, but now that I’m trying more types of food and different recipes my world in the kitchen has gotten much bigger. New favorite? Baked Mac and Cheese.
