Another anti-cheese ad campaign is under way in Albany, featuring billboards with graphic photos of overweight individuals and warnings against the fat-producing evils of cheese. The Times Union has the story:
Cheese: It's been affectionately called the fat man's candy. It has fans on Facebook. It is a staple of both restaurant and home cuisine and even has its own "of the month" club.
But not everyone is a fan of the dairy product.
As part of a campaign by the nonprofit Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, two billboards went up in Albany on Tuesday warning residents that cheese and other dairy products contribute to the local obesity problem — more than 60 percent of adults in Albany County are overweight or obese, according to the state Department of Health.
This little tart makes for a wonderful starter, with the grapes, onions and cheese complementing each other nicely.
Preheat oven to 350˚ F.
Bake puff pastry shells according to package directions. Remove shells from oven, and carefully cut off the top “lid” to expose pastry shell below. Allow to cool to room temperature.
Heat olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Sauté chopped onions until edges begin to brown, then turn heat to medium and slowly sweat onions until caramelized. Remove onions from heat and allow to cool.
The Kitchn takes on a familiar and unpleasant vegan phenomenon:
If you've ever poured cold soy milk into a steaming cup of coffee, you've probably noticed it seize up, coagulating into unappealing curds that sink to the bottom of the cup. Why does this happen and how can it be prevented?
A new UK study found that office workers who are bored with their jobs are more likely than their happy counterpart to consume a greater amount of chocolate and coffee during the work day and then hit the bottle after work. According to MSNBC, about 25 percent of those polled reported being bored most of the time. We're betting people who are happy at their job are munching on cheese!
If you're reading this because you are bored at work, you are probably also munching on some chocolates and guzzling coffee, new research suggests. That after-work brew doesn't sound too bad either, does it?
Strawberries and cheesecake always make a perfect match. The Sweets of Life take this pairing to a new level by hollowing out fresh strawberries and stuffing them full of cheesecake filling.
These aren't anything complicated. With five ingredients, they take only a few minutes to put together. In fact, these were probably the least time-intensive food at my Cheesecake Extravaganza. Yet, I had more than a few people come up and proclaim their love for the finger food.
You don't have to throw a cheesecake party to serve these....I imagine they'd be welcomed just about anytime! Another great party food, these can be made ahead of time. I did all the steps, even the sprinkling of graham cracker crumbs, twenty-four hours ahead of time and they suffered no ill consequences. Just be sure to wrap them well (I covered my plate with plastic wrap).
The director of the Cardiovascular Research Center at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine has been charged with falsifying research data according to CNN Health. Dipak K. Das, Ph.D. reportedly lied over a span of seven years and manipulated research data pertaining to red wine health benefits in almost 150 instances.
Das is well-known for his research into the heart-healthy properties of resveratrol, a compound found in red wine and certain plants that is now sold widely as a nutritional supplement. Das has led or participated in dozens of published studies on resveratrol, many of them funded by the National Institutes of Health.
"We have a responsibility to correct the scientific record and inform peer researchers across the country," said the university's interim vice president for health affairs, Philip Austin, in a statement.
In a recent statement, a senior White House policy adviser rejected a petition from ~6,000 citizens seeking a change in the federal ban on sales of raw milk across state lines. Doug McKalip, senior official in charge of rural affairs, stated that the Administration preferred the current state of affairs, where individual states regulated the raw milk trade within their borders:

Cheese, butter and sourdough bread. No other information is needed. Try this new recipe from The Girl Who Ate Everything.
This naughty Bloomin' Onion Bread has cheese stuffed in every crack and is cut just like the Bloomin' Onion from Outback. My family loved this but really it's enough to feed a small army. It's a fun way to serve bread because everyone can just pull off a piece of cheesy onion bread. This would be a great appetizer or bread for a meal.
These little round cakes are adorable to say the least. Fill them with goat cheese using this recipe from food babbles for a huge breakfast lunch or dinner win:
Ebelskivers (pronounced “able-skeevers”) are puffy, sphere-shaped pancakes that are filled with all sorts of things. They can be sweet or savory. Sometimes they’re served with toppings or sauces as well.
I decided to make two types of ebelskivers, wanting to try both a sweet as well as a savory. My first batch was herb and goat cheese. These were decidedly my favorite. A fresh sage leaf on the top of the sphere tastes earthy and distinct while warm, tangy goat cheese completes this little pancake. I couldn’t stop eating them!
