Bookalicious :: One Hour Cheese

I am that crazy girl who makes her one ice cream for a party.  I make the treats for after t-ball.  I make my own jam, my own pickles, and my own granola.  I can honestly say I never even thought about making my own cheese until I got my hands on Claudia Lucero's new book One Hour Cheese.  {and I even tossed around the idea of making my own hot dogs}



It turns out, making your own cheese is addictive.  And delightfully simple.  I've made the 'beginner's cheese' twice now.  It's simple, quick {about twenty minutes!} and can be flavored with any herbs you have growing.  A salad with blackberries, farmer's cheese, and arugula may be your newest summer salad!  It's mine for sure - especially when I can say; "I made the cheese myself."

{cue everyone in the room rolling their eyes}

Unless, of course, you made your own cheese too.  In which case, you and I can exchange knowing glances of how easy it is to make it yourself.

You can pick up a copy of Claudia's book online here.  Or you can pop over to her book signings/personal appearances while she's in Seattle and meet her in real life.
