In a lot of the recipes I've written about on this site, I've often made reference to my dad's homemade cheeses. I was lucky enough this past weekend to watch him make some homemade Ricotta and Parmesan (and of course went home with a bunch!) It's actually not a difficult process...but it is very time consuming. There's also a bit of technique and art to the whole process. It was fun to hear my dad keep saying "you just...when you've done it for many years, you just know when it's ready."
I guess it will be a while before I ever get to that point. But for now, I'll just enjoy watching my dad do his thing, and enjoying the fruits of his labour. Or, I guess I should say the cheese of his labour.

Now that we're nearing the end of summer (sad, but true) there is a lot of harvesting to be done in gardens everywhere. I almost don't know what to do with it all. Don't be alarmed if, in the next few weeks you see a lot of posting about freezing, canning, or drying foods for winter consumption.
For now, click on the title of this post or the "read more" link below to see a great easy meal I was able to make using only the items I brought home in this picture.
Sweetness is not the only thing you can get from a freshly cut cantaloupe melon. Click the title of this post or the "read more" link to find out what makes the cantaloupe an amazing fruit.

I started this blog after deciding to give up on fad diets, listening to “experts,” counting calories,
measuring, logging, depriving, bingeing, and feeling guilty. All of that only served to make me
bigger, unhealthier, and unhappy. I finally decided to keep it simple: listen to my
own body and eat real food. I
started cooking with ingredients as close to nature as possible and one year later I
feel healthier and happier. I love food and I love cooking it. This blog is an ongoing collection of my new
and favorite recipes. Some, I’ve made
up, but most are inspired by what I see online. Feel free to browse, follow, and leave a
comment! Thanks for reading!
