Depends on the context. On a sandwich, it's Provolone. By itself or on a cracker, it's Brie or Camembert (sp?).

I don't want to get technical (because actually, I know just as little about it as do you all ) But IMHO french cheese is more fungus than cheese . It's still very nice (Brie or Camembert mmmmm) and I know that in fact it is cheese. But it's not cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeese, If you know what I mean.

Brie, all the way.

BTW, Amp - Speaking of useless blather, have you seen that commercial for the new Tom Green movie, where he's in a factory and says something like "I'm not going anywhere without my cheese helmet!!!"

I think about your sig everytime it comes on.

Ah well, back to working on my project...

Is that for the tom green movie? I got the cheese helmet sig from 'some clip' on MTV bytesize, I didn't even know what it was...I never realised it had anything to do with tom green... In fact, I dindn't even now he had his own movie! Care to elaborate and enlighten me?

Like Spoonman said. It depends on the context. By itself I like a longhorn style mild coby, On top of my chili I like a good sharp cheddar. I love cheese and will try any.
And nothing beats a Ritz cracker to put cheese on.

Amp - I don't know if your sig is from the movie, but he says Cheese Helmet in the preview, which you can alledgedly get here, but it doesn't so much work on my computer. Before you click, prepare to be really annoyed. I had 2 of those windows opened at once a second ago and I almost flung myself out the window.

The movie's called "Freddy Got Fingered", and that Tom Green is a funny guy.


...oh, and I take it back - I lived in Switzerland for a semester, and Raclette cheese is the best there is.

doesn't seem to be working for me either...

I got the whole cheese-helmet-for-a-sig idea from a clip on MTV's bytesize, and I don't think it had anything to do with tom green, but I could be wrong. The clip (I don't think it was a commercial) goes a li'l somethin' like this:
  • It's in black and white, not in color. A guy (I didn't recognise him as being Tom Green but hey, what do I know ) is standing in frony of a big wall, next to a burning oil drum. A monologue about capitalism and especially (his) greed follows (he summs up everything he wants to have). something like this:

    Quote:
    I want [....]
    I want [....]
    I want [....]
    I want my own scud missile launcher in my backyard...hell...I pay TAXES! Why can't I have one?
    I want [....]
    I want [....]
    I want a helmet, a cheese helmet, a helmet full of cheese, I wanna pop it on to my head and just eat all day! AND I'M gonna get it some day, I'm gonna have it ALL...And you know WHAT? I'm already WEARING THE CHEESE HELMET!


Sound familiar?

The guy your talking about is Denis Leary an american comedian who used to do a lot of those black and white clips for MTV years ago.
I should know I'm a big fan of the guy. He also did a couple of CD's, a MTV unplugged thing, played in a couple of movies (he played the underground leader guy in Demolition man, the bad guy in judgment night and a load of other things), and was recently on letterman promoting a new cop show he's doing.

If you like the guy try to find one of his cd's, he's like this angry irish guy full of rage that likes to smoke,eat raw meat, and listen to the stones.

Wait! Back to the topic thread (reading everyone else's made me hungry!)

Context is crucial - blue cheese (American spelling - technically "bleu cheese", right Twilightseer ) is great as a salad dressing/sauce (WINGS!) But the best cheese of all...


(drumroll please!)



Squirt Cheese -
Oh Yeah!!! And it never goes bad!

Denis Leary is an american, an Irish American, his family is from ireland and he does a lot of Angry irish jokes.

BTW what's up with cheesecake, why do they call it cheesecake anyway. must be an american thing, don't see any dutch calling that stuff cheese, think i'd have to agree with ampburner.

Well there's a reason for that (well, at least as far as I am concerned, can't speak for Lynx of course)...I'm going to share a big secret now... I do not have a CLUE what cheesecake is !.
seriously. And I never asked because
  • a) I didn't really care and
    b) I was affraid I'd look really stupid.
But I'm asking now.
So... can someone please explain what cheesecake is...?
it's prolly an american thing...I guess

Grated and smoked. Or the other way around... rather.

And once I came back, I have to point one thing out... you told me to tone down my sig when I first (last) came in here. Well, here you go. But if you think my sig was large, take a look around http://www.vault13.net/board/. So there. That's all. Move along.

Well DJ, we do like to actually read posts around here. Often we do get into the grafix, but it's still about communication on the boards. And by the way, have you noticed how long it takes for pages to load at vault13.net/board/? Sorry, but some of us poor folks are still on lil' helpless dial-ups. At that load rate, I'd be sitting here 24/7 ... not like I don't already, but then I REALLY would be.

Oh, ampburner, you have set yourself up. But I give you points for being brave enough to ask the question. Duk? Jayn? Mr Jones? I think I'll let the three of you experts answer this one.

And Duk, the family and I went by Wendys tonight. As we walked in, I figured to myself, "hey, I know what I'm gonna order. That tangy swiss my good friend Duk recommmended."

Guess what. They've never heard of it here on the West Coast. Aaaaaaargggh. So, Major Duk Dude, you're gonna have to go buy one (chicken variety please) and one-day express it over here. Thanks.

Lunatic fringe, we know you're out there.

Depending on how far west, I may be able to hand deliver it to ya cappy! Damn shame they ain't got em over there yet. I'm partial to the chicken variety myself as well. Still haven't been able to finish one off yet tho. Too much food for this full grown lil boy.

And *cheesecake*?! Lord god almighty! If you think I'm talking about food well then ... um ... you'd be right! Um yeah! Some of the tastiest food you'll ever taste my friends. All I can say is if you've never tried it, you simply cannot understand. And that's pure homegrown Grade A 100% American stuff my boys! Um, hmmm ... I'm not so sure exactly what I'm talkin' about here anymore???

Yeah baby!

Todays lesson is...

Cheesecake is the perfect dessert for any time of year; it is smooth, satisfying and stylish. Cheesecakes can be served plain, with fruit or with a sauce poured over them. There are an endless variety of ways to flavor the batter, but the most traditional cheesecake is the New York-style Cheesecake. The method for making flavored cheesecake batter is generally the same as the method for New York-style Cheesecake; we chose to illustrate this method with Chantal's New York Cheesecake.


1) We used 4 (8 ounce) packages of cream cheese (room temperature), 1 1/2 cups white sugar, 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, 3/4 cups of milk, 4 eggs, 1 cup sour cream and 1 tablespoon vanilla extract. Do not purchase spreadable cream cheese, as spreadable cream cheese has been altered in ways that make the cheese too smooth and aerated for cheesecakes.

2) Place the cream cheese in an electric mixer and blend on a slow speed; cream the cheese until it is soft and contains no lumps. If no electric mixer is on hand, use a wooden spoon to cream the cheese.

3) Whisk the flour and sugar together to prevent flour lumps. If the recipe you are following calls for additional dry ingredients, stir them into the sugar and flour mixture as well (salt or cocoa powder, for example). Pour this mixture into the cream cheese and scrape the bowl to prevent lumps from forming

4) Pour the wet ingredients (including eggs) into the mixing bowl one at a time, scraping down the bowl after each addition. The mixer should be set at a low speed for the entirety of this process in an attempt to limit the amount of air incorporated into the mixture. If too much air is whipped into the mixture, the cheesecake will fall (sink in the center) when baked and the texture will be grainy.

5) The texture of the finished batter should be smooth and glossy. Carefully remove the electric mixer's bowl from the mixer; being careful that the batter on the paddle (that may contain lumps) does not get scraped into the smooth filling.

6) Pour the batter into a springform pan lined with a crumb crust; or if you would like to make mini cheesecakes, pour the batter into muffin tins lined with foil or paper liners. To add candies, chocolates, or fruit into the cheesecake, fold the goodies in with a spatula or wooden spoon before pouring the mixture into the prepared pan.

7 The cheesecake is ready to bake.


We are talking about food right? RIGHT?

Back to smacking those lips.....
