Cheesy Cheesy Cheese

Did I mention we made homemade cheese for dinner tonight. I did not tell the child what we were doing...the entire time he watched, he kept saying I had wasted the milk, you cannot reuse cooked milk, why was I wasting all the milk, why was the milk getting lumpy? Then there were the other questions: Are we making sour cream? Are we making cream cheese? Are we making dip? Why is the milk getting lumpy?

10 minutes from milk jug to plate!! We refrigerated the remainder of it for later. I mixed some basil with it and seasoned it with kosher salt and a bit of pepper. Yummy!


  1. Thx for stopping by Saving U Green! Now following you back from the blog hop by GFC

  2. Looks like it would be good on a sandwich...reminds me of feta the way it looks :)

    Stopping by and following from the "Welcome Wednesday" blog hop. Would love a follow back :)


  3. WOW. This looks so GOOD! I had no idea you could do this! lol.

    I just wanted to say thanks for stopping by and following. I just wanted to let you know that I am returning the favor! I look forward to hearing/reading more from you! :)

  4. ...err, or I'm TRYING to follow you. I see you have a tab on your sidebar labeled as such, but I don't see the GFC box. Maybe it's just hiding like mine likes to do sometimes. I will check back later and try again. I have to - it looks like you do some really interesting things! :)

  6. Wow - i didn't realize you could make cheese. Just a few questions :-) Do you have to use whole milk? What kind of cheese is it? It looks a little like Feta or Blue Cheese, what would you say it tastes like?

    BTW - found you through The Wednesday Window. :-) I am getting you all followed, and you can find me at

  9. @Marla - thanks for the follow and stopping by.
    @Guitar - thanks for the follow and am following you back. my son is getting ready to take guitar lessons - so he might like your blog!!
    @Stephanie - I tried to link the widget, and thought I had, but I guess I did not. I followed you through the follow link at the top taskbar on blogger. I have that featire as well to follow me back, if you would please. I will try to load the widget again.

  10. @Not a Trophy - My son has Aspergers and dyslexia as well. How old is your son? I do some curriculum consulting for special education, so we might could exchange some weblink ideas and such for our individual children. I am now following you back.
    @Melanie & Carolyn - Thanks for stopping by and I am following you back both now. I found the info for how to do this on youtube and followed her instructions exactly. It was 2% milk. We usually have skim, so I have not tried it with that yet. We only have done it once so far. I is like a mozzarella in the consistency. I is quite bland, but is tasty with the salt to season. You cook the milk and add a bit of vinegar or lemon when it starts to boil, then you pour off the whey to strain it and squeeze the liquid out.
    @Dayna - Thanks for the follow from the blog hop. I am following you back.
