Now I read your posts, and I'm thinking '.........mmmmm, that sounds interesting......oooh, I think I'll have some of that!". I'm going to try again. Today.
Sandy it took me quite a time to work up my nerve to try gorat cheese..When I did, it also took me 3 to four bites, but I found I enjoyed the tartness of it... When I made stuffed apricots with it, I loved them..The tartness of the cheese combined with the apricots and I used several kinds of nuts walnuts being my favorite, which I tucked in with the cheese, then I drizzled the works with some honey..Yummy..Give it a try. mine didn't smell

There are lots of different types of goat cheese, ranging from soft to hard, with varying degrees of sharpness and "goaty-ness."

Try a goat gouda sometime. Loads different than a cream chevre.

Mish, I'm with you! Chocolate I could definitely live without. Cheese and bread are my weaknesses!

I like to make a quick omlette with a bit of smoked salmon and some goat cheese melted on top.

I also found some great fig-lemon perserves that are outstanding on a cracker with a small smear of goat cheese.

It's good on salads too! Add some pears or figs to your greens, some toasted nuts, toss with a good vinegar / oil dressing and finish off with the goat cheese.
