National Dairy Month

We all know there are the five basic food groups, but this month we are celebrating one that is near and dear to our hearts: dairy. More specifically, cheese! So I want to share the delicious possibilities of one cheese that you may be overlooking: Mascarpone Cheese. Mascarpone is a soft, creamy, traditional Italian cheese that can be the star of both sweet and savory dishes. You can use it to thicken up a soup or pasta, add richness to pudding or mousse, or even just mix it with honey and serve with fresh fruit. The possibilities abound. So today I wanted to share a range of tasty recipes that can get you started on your exploration of Mascarpone!
