Home Made Cheese

A couple of days ago, one of my absolute favorite bloggers MomPhotographer posted that she made home made ricotta cheese.  I had tried making this before and it had curdled and smelled and tasted horrible, like rancid milk.  I decided to try it again after reading her post.  After all, I had company coming over.

It came out perfectly. 

I rolled it in a mix of spices to dress it up a bit and served it with crackers.  It was gone in minutes!

Spice Mix:

1 teaspoon Paprika
1/4 teaspoon ground Pepper
1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder
pinch of Salt
1 teaspoon dried Curly Parsley *

* I save a lot of money by either growing my own herbs or at least buying at the local ethnic store for a large bunch for around 75 cents and hanging upside down to dry near the store and then crushing and transferring it to empty spice jars.

I have a ton of other recipes I want to share but got behind on, so keep an eye out the next few days!  Also, if you like this post, please comment and also go visit Momphotographer and give her some comment love.
