WFMW (foolproof creamy cottage cheese)
It's time to post yet another WFMW tip.

I like cottage cheese but try as I might I could never find a brand that was creamy enough for my liking. I tried so many different kinds and just got more and more frustrated!

Finally, I decided to take matters into my own hands. I took a container of cottage cheese, and added a splash of 2% milk, giving it a good stir. Suddenly, I had extra creamy cottage cheese! Alleluia!

Now that I've got my cottage cheese creamy enough, I like to experiment with variations. I could buy the Breakstone's Cottage Doubles at the store, but I like to mix in my own fresh fruit instead (strawberries,l peaches, blackberries).

I've also been known to mix together the following ingredients: 3 tablespoons of applesauce to 1/2 to 1 cup of low-fat cottage cheese and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Extra creamy cottage cheese work for me! To see what works for others, be sure to check out the other links at Shannon's, the creator of Works-For-Me Wednesday!

My kids can go through a serious amount of cottage cheese! this would also help stretch it a bit further!

I love cottage cheese and applesauce and a little splenda! Yummy! I also like cottage cheese with blueberries.

You know I don't think that I've ever even tried cottage cheese. When I was younger and my mom used to eat it all the time ~ I just couldn't get past the texture. But, I love cheese...all kinds. And, when I was doing my grocery shopping this week I seriously considered buying some. I didn't, but I think I will next time around. I think it would be a great snack! And, if I do try it I'll be sure to add some milk to it! Thanks!

Great idea! I was reading your earlier post about privacy and I have worried about it myself. I think that we do need to think and not put up anything that is too personal or with too much information. I loved the pictures on your blog. My husband lived in Ireland for two years and his parents later did for 1 1/2 years. I have only visited once and would love to go again! It is one of the most beautiful places on earth.

I like mine creamier too and don't often find what I like. This is a great idea. Thanks!

I love the breakstones regular, made with whole milk, fatten-you-up kind, because it's creamier than the 2% or weakened skim milk variations, but I must admit ... it's very, VERY thick, so I can see how adding milk would make it nice and creamy!

I've never cared too much for cottage cheese but that actually looks pretty good!

My favorite from when I was a kid is to mix sour cream and cottage cheese together and top with fresh fruit (especially blueberries). Mmmmmmmm, I could go for a bowl right now.

Perhaps I'm one of the few guys on earth who shies away from cottage cheese. Don't know why.

Thanks for the tip. I often find that low-fat cottage cheese is too dry. I wonder if you could you skim milk instead of 2%. Think I'll give it a try.
