Ricotta cheese

Ricotta cheese is very easy to make. all you need is 4 parts whole milk to 1 part acid. Here’s my favorite recipe: 2 cups whole milk Around 1/8 cup vinegar 1. Heat milk in sauce pan till hot to the touch. 2. Add acid and turn off heat. 3. Stir. Soon there should be white bits floating in a clear water like liquid. 4. Strain through 2 ¬†layers of cheese cloth or a fine mesh strainer. 5. Don’t strain to much liquid off or you will have a dry ricotta. You can use this ricotta in many recipes. I like to use it in cheese ravioli. I will be posting that recipe soon. ¬†Enjoy!

Sushi?

Why do people think sushi is gross? I mean it is so good ! What is the reason they think¬† it is gross? It is because sushi is raw fish!¬†I know you wouldn’t go and eat a whole thing of raw chicken or raw pork.¬† But sushi is a totally different concept. Raw fish and raw chicken and pork are not the same thing at all! I mean, what does the guy¬† eat in that movie¬† Life of Pi ? Raw fish! If you’ve noticed raw chicken and pork will kill you while sushi is good for you! Well what I ‘m¬† trying to say is, be adventurous, try new foods, try something no one has ever tried before! Make up new foods and try them out!¬† Try sushi!¬† You don’t have to like it, everyone has different opinions. But still, I insist, sushi is GOOD!

Cooking with little hands

Being a kid has its advantages but it also has its minuses, especially in cooking! Kids don’t get to grill, fry things, only occasionally do they get to chop things, and there are¬† a lot of other things kids don’t get to do ! But, there are a lot of things kids can do[ well I can do ].¬† I get to bake things, boil things, make bacon, fry eggs, poach eggs [sometimes], and cook anything I want [if my moms there]! I love cooking!
