Homemade Cheese

Homemade Cheese

A friend has given me her homemade cheese several times, generally made from her goat’s milk. This is the single best reason ever to have milking goats (although the milk straight is really yummy as well). She invited me over to make some homemade cheese with her, knowing how much I wanted to learn for myself. You can do this with cow’s milk; the thicker it is, the better your outcome will be.

Chicken and Biscuit Casserole

 

I’m deceiving you.   That is because although I usually use chicken, I actually used leftover frozen turkey in the picture you see above.  This is one of those recipes that begs you to play, using a pinch-of-this and anything left over lurking in the fridge.  It’s the quintessential makeover meal.  You are really looking at my leftovers in that picture.

12 Minute Recipe: Buttered Fish in White Wine with Homemade Cranberry Sauce

Buttered Fish in White Wine with Cranberry Sauce

I originally posted this recipe in 2013, and it is a family favorite.  Yesterday, I served it to a last-minute house guest who made 2 major comments: it was delicious and he’d “have to remember this recipe” himself, and that he would never have thought to pair a cranberry sauce with fish.  It definitely has a Norwegian taste combination that is a sure hit with family and guests alike!  If you’ve not made this one, plan it for a busy day this week when you know you won’t have time for more than a…12 minute meal!

Enjoy this food storage recipe for the pop of flavor!
