This past week Tightwad decided that cottage cheese was the hero of the diet world, and decided to buy two big containers of it. Her thoughtful husband, having heard her going on and on about cutting back and the attributes of cottage cheese, also bought a container of it home. There is was, three containers of cottage cheese.
Today Tightwad took the bull by the horns. Using it as a "secret ingredient" she add it to these (albeit admittedly decidedly non diet items) rosemary cheddar scalloped potatoes and an oatmeal chocolate chip cranberry cookie recipe. The results? Awesome! The cottage cheese was absorbed in the scalloped potatoes giving a rich result, and gave the cookies a really nice, soft texture. Two down, one container left! Here are some surprising cottage cheese recipes:
