Pink Fluff

This is a easy quick recipe. It is a favorite in my family. The blend of cottage and cheddar cheeses is spectacular.

Cottage Cheese, Avocado, and Black Bean Salsa

Rating: 4.53 stars
This may look and sound sort of bad, but let me tell you, there isn't a tastier, nutritious, salsa-like dip to hold you over while you wait for dinner. Funny enough, this was created as an experiment with leftovers, and now I have over 15 friends making it on a regular basis! This is a great recipe that can be stored in the refrigerator for several days for a quick, anytime snack. (Frozen corn, heated and cooled in the same manner, may be used in place of the corn on the cob.)

Cottage Cheese Bread I

Easy Broccoli-Cheese Casserole

Rating: 4.58 stars

For the longest time, my mum would make this amazing broccoli casserole. It is more like a crustless quiche, but has converted many broccoli haters into broccoli lovers! I have not ever tweaked this recipe - not even to add minced garlic, sauteed onion, pimento, etc; it's too simple and delicious on its own to need tweaking. This can be made ahead and refrigerated before cooking. It freezes well and can be thawed prior to cooking.
