Fromage Blanc

Fromage what? Blanc who? The non-fancy-French way to say this is White Cheese, or Farmer’s Cheese. I made some. I made cheese. 

Yes, you’re just as confused as I am. 

To be honest, it was a giant pain in the butt, and I doubt I’ll ever make it again, or at least for a very long time, but apparently it was worth it in the end, because my parents both say it tastes like, and has the texture of, goat cheese! For someone in a place where goat cheese is easily obtained, that might not be that impressive, but for as much cheese as I made, the equivalent in goat cheese here would probably be about 20 dollars. And I can now say I’ve made, and know how to make, cheese.

I am in no way going to show you guys how I made this, because it barely worked at all and I wouldn’t do that to you, but I’ll show you where I learned how to make it, over on Food Wishes video recipes, which is hosted by one of my favourite food bloggers. If you try it, let me know how it turns out. I wish you better luck than I had!

I still kinda feel fancy-dancy and proud that I made cheese… 😀

By the way, the above picture is what I made for Easter breakfast for my parents. Eggs in clouds, with my home made cheese on my whole wheat bread.

-Happy Cooking!

Nutty Asian Salad Dressing

My family devoured their veggies tossed in this sauce. I mean, they really, really loved it. It’s even little kid approved, thanks to my nine-year-old little sister of sorts.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp natural peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbso white vinegar
  •  2 tsp honey
  • About 1 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • Enough water to get a nice dressing consistency, 3 or 4 tsp should do.

Mix together and eat with mixed veggies, or a green salad. It’s so insanely delicious. I really like it with broccoli, since the tree-tops (I’m sure they have a real name, but I don’t know it, so they’re tree tops) catch the sauce so magnificently 😀
