25 Cheesy Recipes and Finding Your Passion in Life
What is life without passion? I can’t tell you how many passions I’ve had, or what passion will strike next. At first is started with horses as a little girl – living, breathing, riding and putting a pony as number 1 on my Christmas wish list until I was 17. I was a determined and willful child. Sports took over through my adolescence, from soccer, to track, volleyball and fast pitch culminating in my college years as a lumberjack in college. Now I turn to cooking. Each of these chapters of passions gave me an outlet, a place of solice, a place to dive head first into and find a new part of myself that I didn’t know existed. It’s true! Wielding axes and running with chainsaws was never something I thought I would do, let alone fall so heartedly in love with.
One of the best things about finding your passions are meeting the people that share those passions right along with you. And so often when you find your passions and the people that share them, you find a new sense of community. What a wonderful thing. Now that my lumberjack days are behind me, I’ve turned to my passion of cooking to share my mind, creations, photography and writing with not only fantastic readers who are continually supportive and keep coming back for more – but a community of bloggers who have a true and unyielding passion for creation, and bringing people together through food. As we continue to cook and create we also learn, and to me learning new things continues that passion and helps forage new paths.
Passion is a fundamental quality of living – and living (and eating – who are we kidding!) without passion isn’t fulfilled.
Cracker Barrel cheese has a deep passion not just for cheese on it’s own, but for all of the facets that go into cheese-making like the formulas and science, the heritage and the quality and what the product represents. For years, Cracker Barrel has developed cheeses that speak to us, that we go to not just their quality, but because they were the cheese that our mom’s and grandma’s served us. And these cheese people have a passion for the cheese they create – knowing that the cheese they create goes on the table for those around the country for people who value the passion of others. And what a delicious passion to have, huh?
