    Dito. Cottage cheese is like crack-cocaine for me. I eat about 4 cups a day right now.... so good.

    I usually mix mine with PVL chocolate peanut butter or sugar free maple syrup and extract along with a lot of Splenda. That's my best advice, for taste anyway...the more splenda the better :p.

    Oh and I actually like mine a little watery so I mix a tiny bit of skim milk in as well. Meanwhile, I am getting the best looks from my family. It's truly priceless.

    I have never, at any point in my life, been a cottage cheese freak. I can tolerate it now, though. Hell, I can even eat it without disguising it. This is a MAJOR improvement. :cheat:

    I like to mix it with fruits if I'm eating it by itself (pineapples, mangoes, peaches, cantaloupe, grapefruit).

    If I'm making a shake, I do that nasty combo Erik made. :funny: I use about 1/4 cup of cottage cheese, a scoop of protein powder, 1-2 tsp of peanut butter, splenda, sugar-free syrup, and fruit (strawberries or blueberries).

    To cook, I mix it with tuna like Nicki suggested. I make tuna melts by simmering a can of tuna, cottage cheese, celery, onions, peppers, and spices, and then pour it over a slice of wheat bread and toast in the over for a little while. It's a little runny, but it tastes good to me. :cheat:

    This sounds yummy. :yum:

    I've actually just nuked it a little to take the chill off it and then added in my strawberries. Just looking for something different I guess. :shrug:

    I may be the only one, but I hate my cc with sweet stuff. I like it with salt and pepper and chopped green onions. Sometimes I add sliced radishes. Its a Polish thing - the way my mom's made it for me forever. :thumb:

    I love how versatile cc is. I like it sweet and savory. W/ salsa and chicken, it's so good.

    Oh, I am so boring. The only way I eat CC is with berries & a little stevia on it.

    I ate WAY too much CC in the past and find it is something I could easily live without. I don't dislike it but it really doesn't thrill me & I have to remind myself to eat it. :shrug:

    Blend protein powder (I've only used chocolate), cottage cheese, and some ice cubes...maybe some splenda until smooth...you might need a little liquid in there, too. Then stick it in the ice cream maker. :yum:

    I usually just eat it with splenda and some blueberries, chopped nuts, or PB. So good. Also, I only use Michigan brand cottage cheese...the rest is :barf:

    The other thing I do, on a refeed day, I have put it on baked chips, melted it, and then top with salsa. That satisfies my Mexican cravings. :thumb:

    In a blender combine 1/2 cup cottage cheese, vanilla extract, cinnamon and stevia (or whatever sweetner you use). blend until smooth.

    Top on 2 slices toasted Ezekiel bread, with either sliced strawberries, banana, thin slices apple or jam/jelly of choice.

    *really good to add either natural peanut butter or almond butter to the cottage cheese before blending, then put on toast.

    My favorite is dry curd cottage cheese. I like it plain or with a little sea salt, super low in cals too. 2T (32 g)=15 calories, no fat, 3g prot, 1g carb.
    I love sweet potatoes topped with 2T dry curd cottage cheese + 1 teaspoon nonfat Kefir (plain). Good with sea salt, spinach, and grilled chicken.
    I like sour, savory, salty recipes, so if you need ideas let me know. I think I am the only one who doesn't like anything sweet :p


    Sorry, I assume this is probably here somewhere, but thought I would include it with this thread anyway.
