At this time of year friends and family are bound to stop by for an impromptu visit. Those of us who cook feel the need to feed. Keeping cheese on hand can take the stress out of those last minute visits.

In the summer we like nothing better than a bruschetta style snack — garden fresh tomatoes and cheese with crackers or baguettes. But alas it winter and tomatoes are not in season.

I have found that purchasing them on the vine gives them a longer shelf life and remember DO NOT put tomatoes in the refrigerator it makes tomatoes grainy and yucky!

Feta is a pickled curd cheese that has a salty and tangy taste enhanced by the brine solution. It is creamy white with small holes, a crumbly texture, in square cakes with no rind. It can also be purchased crumbled and flavored.
