Generally I use whatever is on sale for sauteing, pan frying, etc. My friend just gave me a bottle of olive oil that she got in Italy and I also use olive oil from this local store called Seasons for special applications like putting on grilled and roasted veggies, salads, vinaigrettes, finishing sauces, etc. 2.

Cottage cheese. What kind do you like? (large curd, small curd, 2%, 4%, no salt, etc) Large curd.
