Matriarchy: Recipe challenge! My mother gets cheese from a food program. Land O' Lakes Reduced Fat American Cheese Product. WAY too close to Velveeta for my taste. I doesn't seem like real cheese to me. I can't figure out what to do with it, and I have three blocks in the fridge. I tried mac-n-cheese but it came out so... velveeta-ish. I need ideas to use this up! Anyone?

Janice Cook: i don't usually love velveeta but this mac and cheese recipe has a neat tang from the creamed corn so maybe it would make the velveeta not the predominant flavor? - http://wegottaeat.com/janice.cook/recipes/kienas-creamy-ham-and-cheese-mac. that being said, in general i don't find the reduced fat cheese to be worthwhile. i'll reduce fat in other areas.

Matriarchy: I agree - good cheese is worth the fat. I did make a variation of the Paula Deen mac-n-cheese that was not 5-star special, but was very acceptable for a weeknight. Janice, I will try yours next - thanks!
