You can marinate your goat cheese and serve it with crusty bread or use three cheeses to make an irresistible macaroni and cheese dish — your options are endless.

Blue Cheese Guacamole

You might think I came up with this guacamole recipe just to make Diana Kennedy cringe. But blue cheese and avocado do make a truly delicious union that, as any fan of the Cobb salad understands, is not as odd as it sounds. I typically use the best stuff I can find at the cheese counter, such as Roquefort, Cabrales, or Danish Blue, but even the already crumbled blue cheese you find in a good grocery store will be delicious.

Marinated Goat Cheese

This cheese keeps for quite some time (about three weeks) in the refrigerator but is at its best a couple of weeks into the marinade — if it was fresh to begin with. You can use goat, mozzarella, or feta cheese — the feta and mozzarella I think keep a bit longer than the fresh goat. The marinated cheese makes a terrific addition to a mezze or antipasto platter, a lovely crostini, or as a salad garnish, particularly one with roasted beets and bitter greens. — Judith Choate

Spicy Three Cheese Mac and Cheese

We begin with a medley of cheeses, including pepper jack, Cheddar, and Parmigiano-Reggiano, and add to that a mix of scallions and jalapeños. Macaroni noodles gets replaced with fusilli pasta because, let's face it, a little change never hurt nobody. — Tim McGeever
