Chop Chop Magazine and Cabot Cheese Giveaway

This post contains links that, if you click on them and make a purchase, will earn me money. Regardless, I only recommend products or services that I believe will be good for my readers. Thanks for helping me continue to produce great content!

You’re here for the cheese giveaway, right?

Mmmhmm. That’s what I thought.
Well, BEFORE I tell you how to enter to win said cheese, let me give you a little more value for your click. (Which I do deeply, deeply appreciate! All clicks and shares are ~highly~ esteemed!)

Disclosure: I am a member of the Cabot Cheese Board. From time to time, they send me wonderful cheese, and recently, some delicious Cabot Greek yogurt to try! Mmmm! Other than that, and my own fall copy of Chop Chop Magazine to examine, I have received no compensation whatsoever for writing this post. (Bummer.)

Chop Chop Magazine

Chop Chop Fun Cooking Magazine for Kids and a Cabot Cheese Giveaway

This is the cover of last year’s fall edition of Chop Chop Magazine.

Back in the day when my kids were little, which was pretty much yesterday (that’s what it feels like to me, anyway), I could have REALLY used what I’m going to share with you today: Chop Chop Magazine. I would have LOVED to have had access to this! 

Chop Chop is an innovative non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire and teach kids to cook real food with their families. (Can you imagine, homeschooling mama that I was, how much I would have LOVED having access to this magazine? No? Well, I can tell you, I completely WISH they’d been around when I was homeschooling!) Chop Chop Magazine believes that cooking and eating together as a family is a vital step in resolving the obesity and hunger epidemics.

(I’m going to throw in my two cents here, and say that one of my main missions in sharing great recipes on That Susan  is to provide practical help so that moms and dads can create beautiful memories with their families, by creating delicious meals they can all enjoy. So how much more beautiful is the idea of making those memories of creating delicious meals, together with your kids? And by doing so, you’re EQUIPPING them with life skills that your kids are GOING to need, in order to not waste their money on constantly eating out. I could go OFF right now on an entire soapbox…but I won’t. You want to win cheese. So I’ll restrain myself.)

ChopChop Magazine reaches more than 2 million families each year and is endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics. It was named publication of the year by the James Beard Foundation, and is a two-time winner of the Parent’s Choice Award. 

ChopChop Magazine, the fun cooking magazine for families, and their free ChopChop Cooking club, their national healthy cooking campaign, wants to invite every family to join and pledge to cook dinner together once a month for 6 months.
(Once a month is completely doable, if you ask me. I’d want to have joined the  Chop Chop Honors Challenge – which doesn’t exist by the way- where you create a meal together once a WEEK. But nobody asked me.)

Anyhow, even if you don’t win the gift box of cheese that Cabot cheese is offering to one of my lucky readers through this giveaway, I’d strongly encourage you to visit the Chop Chop Website to see all the cool recipes and resources they have there. I’d also encourage you, if you have school age kids, (and for gosh sakes’ ESPECIALLY if you homeschool – and lots of my friends do), to consider joining their Chop Chop Cooking Club. 

The folks at Chop Chop magazine sent me a copy of their fall edition, and I LOVE it!!! I just linked you to it, so that you can see for yourself what I’m talking about. If you think you might be interested in subscribing to it, I’d encourage you to go ahead and use that link to check it out for yourself. 

In this fall’s issue, for example, they have an article that shows how to make homemade ricotta cheese. It’s not just a recipe, either. Within the article, they explain to you and your kids the kitchen science behind the recipe. This will appeal to your kids’ curiosity, and to their appetites! I didn’t make my first batch of ricotta cheese till about a year ago, as an adult. And one of the reasons I made it is simply due to my love of learning. Don’t we WANT our kids to be lifelong learners? Shouldn’t we, therefore, model for them our own love of learning? What better way is there to do that, than to learn together?

  1. My favorite is Brie, but my family loves Cabot Seriously Sharp Cheddar.

  2. Picking a favorite cheese is like picking a favorite child. Sharp Cheddar is fabulous. I also have an affinity for Parmesan. Mmm… Cheese.

  3. Rebecca Burns says

    One of my favorites is Dill Havarti from a local'ish dairy, Fair Oaks Dairy Farm, Mike Rowe even went there on Dirty Jobs! 🙂

  4. Pick a favorite? It depends on the day and the occasion. I love them all. Cheese, glorious cheese!

  5. Brie. Or Pecorino. Or or or who can pick a cheese??!?

  9. I love most cheese but a big favorite here is extra sharp white cheddar.

  10. Betsy Keene says

    Oh my….not sure I've met a cheese I didn't like! I love a good havarti! I also love sharp cheeses like seriously sharp!

  11. I'm a big fan of lots of cheeses! For the hard cheeses, I'm a big fan of mild cheddar and pepper jack. Soft cheese category is probably port salut first and foremost!
    My recent post Capturing the Light of Cotton Fields at Sunset — Photo Post

  12. Feta. Jack. And of course cheese curds!

  13. extra sharp cheddar

  14. I like Rosemary Gouda

  15. Michelle Linder says

    GUODA!!! I love it's texture and flavor so much. My family loves cheese, doesn't matter the kind they eat it all! Cabot is a favorite brand of ours but mostly for special occasions due to it's price.

  16. Love Cabot cheese. They use to donate to Christmas Village so we could serve their wonderful cheese with our wine. I love all cheese but especially sharp cheddar and gouda.

  17. I can't. I can't pick just one! It's like you are asking me to pick a favorite child! I just love cheese.

  18. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE cheese!! I haven't met a cheese I don't like!

  19. Favorite cheese? That's like which of my 6 kids is my favorite. LOL!!

    If I HAD to pick, probably a good Manchego, followed closely by a goat Gouda dh gets me at Whole Foods from time to time (unsure of brand).

  20. thejuliehunt says

    I'm a proud smokey gouda girl. Add them to grits and oh my! Delish!!

  21. Stacey Ulferts says

    My favorite cheese is Muenster.

  22. Julie Jaskowiak says

    Hm. That is a very difficult choice. I think it depends on the day! Today, smoked Gouda.

  23. Laura Brown says

    I really love Swiss cheese, and Alpine lace, but a good sharp white cheddar is great, too.

  24. Melissa Lake says

    What a great magazine! I love cheese and it’s tough to pick a favorite. Right now (and I’m eating it as we “speak”) I’d say havarti is my favorite.

  25. Manchego hands down! Favorite of all time!!!! Yum.

  26. My favorite at this moment is Trader Joe’s Asiago cheese, infused with rosemary and olive oil. OH MY!

    I’ve been to the Cabot factory in Vermont, and it was so cool! Funny story: I bought cheese for my husband there, kept it cool on the drive all the way back to my sister’s house in NJ, then froze it and packaged it too bring it home with me on the plane. My husband loved it! But that’s not the end of the story – the following week, I was at my local Costco, and to my shock, what should I see in the deli case but Cabot cheese…the exact one I’d bought for my husband! HA!

  27. I adore emmental … on a fresh baguette with soft butter. mmmm
    But smoked provolone is also so lovely.

  28. I am a massive fan of feta. Sadly, 4 of my children are as well. They sneak feta when I’m not looking, then I go to crumble it on something amazing and… ☹️️

  29. I love nearly all cheeses, but since I have to pick a favorite, I'll go with an extra sharp white cheddar.

  30. Hard to pick one kind! I love a good sharp white cheddar, or Brie with fresh French bread. A recent favorite is adding smoked Gouda to my homemade mac & cheese. Yummy!

  31. We are a house divided between sharp cheddar, parmesan & asiago. Maybe a gift box would bring us together, 🙂

  32. Hmm…I like so many cheeses! I had some Havarti cheese recently and it was really, really good.

  33. I love almost all cheese! My current favorite is feta in olive oil, seasoned with herbs and peppercorns. It’s an imported jar that the commissary has apparently stopped carrying.

  34. I love sharp cheedar. swiss and provolone.
