Exactly what it sounds like it is. Thoughtful descriptions of many of the cheeses that Cowgirl sells and/or distributes.

A Few Sites I Get Random Recipes From:

Recipes from both Gourmet and Bon Appétit Magazines. Finally,  I can throw my back-issues away!
The great democracy of the Internet; recipes both good and bad with an excellent search feature of; “ingredients I want/don’t want”.

Some other Cheese-Related Sites I Respect/Promote:

I’m a member; you should be too! 

The Cheese School of San Francisco

An incredible place where you can become an expert, or at the very least heighten your love of cheese. I first became aware of the Cheese School when the founder of the school (Sara Vivenzio), as well as Kathy and myself were featured on a “Fog File” by Peter Finch of KFOG radio in San Francisco. [Link to Fog File Here].

Some  Non-cheese, Non-food Sites I Enjoy:

Thunderbird Theatre Company
Original Comedic Stage Plays in San Francisco. I’m a co-founder and very much involved.

A local (Bay Area, California) gathering of blogs on just about any topic you can think of (yes, food included). The editor, Brittney Gilbert, gives a near-daily digest with excerpts (and links) to keep you abreast of what Bay Area bloggers are blogging about.

Super Bad
Has nothing to do with the film of the same name. this site is a place to click through when you are bored at work.

dADa Online
A very good, basic site about Dadaism. Good place to escape to when your mind needs clearing.
