It started with how to make ricotta, mozzarella, and buttermilk. I am totally interested in making all of those things but I know with certainty that I won't make them in my lifetime. All the recipes seem really great and if a friend made them, I would totally eat them. I really want the whole all natural thing but I might be a little cheap and lazy that I don't want to make them. I guess I will have to figure out if the cost savings and see if it makes it worthwhile but I hope that I can try to make at least one of them at some point in my life. What do you think?? Are these things that you want to try or do you just want to pick them up at the grocery store?
There are some other recipes that are a little more interesting to me like pie crust, hamburger buns, bread, and tortillas (all things that I have tried before). Of course, the longer that I read the book, the more that I thought that I could make anything in the book. With all the extra time that I have in a day, I am sure that I will have time to make homemade wheat crackers and twinkies. Okay, I can't even figure out how I get to the start of the day to the end of the day and get everything done that I need to get done. It took me until the middle of January to get the Christmas books packed away. Here is hoping that if I make note of a few of her recipes, that I will actually try them.
I hope that you check it out at your local library or bookstore soon. I don't know if I will make a lot from the recipes but I certainly learned a lot. It renewed my interest in trying to garden and can. I don't know if I will move towards actual doing it but it makes a goal to add to the list. I hope that you check it out and enjoy it as much as I did!!!! I think that if you like to cook or bake, then you will enjoy all the stories as much as the recipes.
