An Apple and (some Cabot Cheese) a day, keep the Holiday Blues away

Cabot cheese is a New England favorite and many Connecticut dairy farms participate in the Cabot Creamery Cooperative. Together they have won every major taste award for their cheddar cheese.

Cabot is using this holiday season when many of us overload on sweets, to promote some great heart healthy recipes that are proven time and time again to be delicious and easy to prepare.
