Doesn’t that pizza look amazing? I didn’t make it. The photo is from the folks at Cooper cheese. All that ooey, gooey cheese makes my mouth water.
Pizza is one of the most popular foods here at the Jersey shore. We love our pizza. I’ve been told by many people that pizza in other areas of the country is nothing like the pizza that we have here in our area.
Philly Cheesesteak. I didn’t make that either. Once again, Cooper Cheese has struck, leaving me pondering the blend of steak and melty cheese and salivating on my keyboard.
Philly Cheesesteaks are another really popular food in our area, probably partially because we’re only an hour out of Philly. It’s also just because it’s a delicious sandwich. In fact, a Philly Cheesesteak is one of my oldest son’s absolute favorite things to eat.
We don’t have a ton of money, so we don’t eat out all that often. I make my own versions of dishes at home, many of which include cheese. I love cheese. My whole family loves cheese. It’s one of the items you can always find in my fridge in one or more forms. I use it in many of the dishes that I make. It’s on almost every sandwich that I make. Hubby actually teases me from time to time, saying that I don’t know how to make a dish that doesn’t have cheese. Of course I do! I just choose not too, because cheese is just so yummy!
A popular cheese in my area is Cooper Cheese. Cooper Cheese has been around since 1893, when I.C. Cooper, a prominent banker from Teresa, New York, began selling aged cheese under the Cooper label. In 1945, the Cooper Victory label (C.V. Sharp) was developed in honor of World War II veterans. Cooper Cheese is a proud supporter of Operation Homefront.
Made with the goodness of real milk, Cooper is made with hand-selected, high-quality American cheese that’s aged between 100-180 days. The distinct aged flavor really makes meals come alive – from burgers and subs to mac ‘n cheese, and everything in between. Cooper has three different types of sharp cheeses: White, Yellow, and Black Pepper available at deli counters. Customers can locate the store nearest to them by using the product locator.
