The EU tries to grab all the cheese

I'm not sure the "being piggy" argument helps this case but there's a case to be made as to what to call a Parmesan cheese that's made in WI if it's not to be called Parmesan?

Europe wants U.S. dairy companies to stop using generic names like parmesan and feta. They're getting greedy.

From Cooking Secrets For Men – (Recently named as one of the Top 30 Men’s Cooking Websites on the Internet) Easy Asparagus Soup – Easy Asparagus Soup - This simple soup can be ready in about 30 minutes and takes full advantage of the flavor of asparagus. Fresh tarragon takes it up a notch. This recipe can be found at
From Cooking Secrets For Men – (Recently named as one of the Top 30 Men’s Cooking Websites on the Internet) Jalapeno Cheddar Corn Muffins - The first batch was so bad that I had to run out to Whole Foods and buy pre-made cornbread for our dinner. It was good cornbread, but I was disappointed in my “baking skills”. So, in our 2nd attempt (in a segment we call “Charlie’s Kitchen Calamities”, we fix our mistakes. The batter was moister. I had the correct number of eggs (1 egg per box). The result was perfect Jalapeno Cheddar Corn Muffins.
From Cooking Secrets For Men – (Recently named as one of the Top 30 Men’s Cooking Websites on the Internet) Walnut Rosemary Crusted Salmon - This oven-baked salmon recipe is easy to prepare and cooks in 10 minutes or less. It’s easy, healthy, and only needs a handful of ingredients!
From Cooking Secrets For Men – (Recently named as one of the Top 30 Men’s Cooking Websites on the Internet) This recipe for breakfast egg muffins is an easy grab-and-go option for busy mornings. The protein-packed egg muffins are loaded with cheese and veggies for great flavor! To make this a vegetarian meal omit the sausage. Just two minutes in the Microwave.
Whether it's bunching at Nonnia or Oktoberfest at PB&J - this weekend Chicago favorites are ready for you!
From Cooking Secrets For Men – Chicken Thighs vs Chicken Breasts. In a two-part YouTube video/website series, we compared the difference between chicken breasts and chicken thighs. Part one of the series is about chicken breasts. Part 2 is about chicken thighs (boneless and bone-in). We show you the easiest and faster ways to cook them. We pan sear the breast, broil the bone-in thigh and grill the boneless thigh. Part one is https://cookingsecretsformen.com/2021/09/10/chicken-breast-vs-thigh-part-1-breasts/ Part two is https://cookingsecretsformen.com/2021/09/13/chicken-thigh-vs-breast-part-2/ Hope you find it interesting.

From Cooking Secrets For Men – Veggie Sandwiches with Salsa Cream Cheese – This takes me back many years when making veggie sandwiches is something we did for weekend nourishment. At the beach, concert, picnic, or backyard gathering. We show you what goes in our Veggie Sandwich.
From Cooking Secrets For Men – Roasted Beet Salad Recipe - with Arugula and Feta. We show you how to roast beets for a salad. For years, I roasted beets, but they were time-consuming and messy. Peeling, slicing and everything including my fingers had a red stain on it. But finally, a friend showed me a better way to roast beets. Roasted beets are simple as a side dish or in a salad. Today we are making an Arugula salad, with fresh roasted beets and feta cheese. The YouTube video is located at
