My favorite memories have all centered around friends and family enjoying a meal together! It might have been a special holiday or a celebration, or it might have been dinner with friends at a great restaurant. I hope you will enjoy some of my favorite recipes and take time to fellowship with those seated at your table. You might make a memory to last forever!

Cheese Curds

Curds are small chunks of cheese solids which have been separated from the natural whey present in milk, but not yet pressed into molds to make cheese.  They have a mild flavor and a creamy texture.  I had never heard of Cheese Curds until I visited Western New York, it was love at first bite!  After returning home, I searched for a local cheese maker that made Cheese Curds.  It has been two years and I just now realized that Sweetwater Valley Farms, only miles from home, make and sell Cheese Curds.  I purchased some at a local farmer's market yesterday and came right home to have a snack.  I then decided to give a new recipe a try!  Skillet Browned Cheese Curds!

Fresh Cheese Curds
Place curds in cold skillet and heat to medium high temperature.
When golden brown on the bottom, flip to brown the other side.
Remove carefully to a plate to cool slightly!

Warm and gooey on the inside with a nice
golden crunch on the outside!

  1. I am really enjoying your blog. This recipe looks especially fun -- I'm going to see if I can find cheese curds nearby. Surely they'll have them as some of the local farmer's markets!
