Some of my favorite recipes…

I’m on vacation this week and in my absence I thought I’d share some of my favorite recipes from the past. These are all “oldies but goodies” but if you’re new to the blog, they may be new to you too!

How to Make Fresh Ricotta Cheese plus an Easy Pasta Recipe

Yes, you can make cheese at home with nothing more than milk and a squeeze of lemon.
