        Cheez that was easy!

              My family loves cheese, especially fun to eat kinds of cheese! And when they learned it was homemade--well sweetie, just get out of the way! It was a complete hit! I've made it twice now, the first time it seemed to take me a while since I was not sure about anything but with the instruction booklet and the great pictures, I made it. The second batch went so much more smoothly. I don't know that I will ever buy mozzarella again. I am trying the ricotta next to use in my homemade lasagna. My family already thinks my lasagna is the best, hopefully using homemade ricotta in my lasagna will make me famous!! Well, famous within my family!

                      Unique for my son and his wife that live in NYC, but like natural foods. My daughter-in-law has lactose intolerance, so they will use goat milk to make their cheese!

                            I purchased this as a gift for my elderly parents, both of whom enjoy cooking. They were delighted to receive it, but noted that the only drawback is you have to be extremely careful in monitoring the temperature, which is somewhat difficult for them due to physical issues.
