Ricotta, Mozzarella, Chèvre, Paneer--Even Burrata. Fresh and Simple Cheeses You Can Make in an Hour or Less!
By Claudia Lucero
It’s a DIY cook’s dream come true: It’s pizza night, and you’ve made not only the crust and sauce but the mozzarella, too. Or you're whipping up quesadillas for a snack, using your homemade Triple Pepper Hack. Or the dinner party's in high gear and out comes the cheese plate—and yes, you've made all the cheeses on it. Even better—you made them all earlier that day.
In a cookbook whose results seem like magic but whose recipes and instructions are specific, easy-to-follow, and foolproof, Claudia Lucero shows step by step—with every step photographed—exactly how to make sixteen fresh cheeses at home, using easily available ingredients and tools, in an hour or less. The approach is basic and based on thousands of years of cheesemaking wisdom: Heat milk, add coagulant, drain, salt, and press. Simple variations produce delicious results across three categories—Creamy and Spreadable, Firm and Chewy, and Melty and Gooey. And just as delicious, the author shows the best ways to serve them, recipes included: Squeaky “Pasta” Primavera, Mozzarella Kebab Party, and Curry in a Hurry Lettuce Wraps.

Processed foods are nutrient devoid and calorie dense. Fresh unprocessed foods are nutrient dense and provide us with the nutrition that we need to stay healthy, they provide us with all of the vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients that we need to get and stay healthy. This series of classes are designed to teach you all sorts of tips and tricks to incorporate more clean eating principles into your life for better health.
Monday 10/6 Real Food Meals
Real food meals can be made in just minutes with a little forethought and preparation. Learn how to set yourself up for success so that you can create food fast instead of relying on fast food to feed your family.
Monday 10/13 Real Food Snacks
Snacks should be thought of as mini-meals and should always be nutritious rather than full of empty calories, especially for children and oldsters. Snacks can be a very important way of staying on track with your healthy lifestyle and there are lots of ways to process your own snack foods at home to provide yourself and your family with tasty treats without all the junk.
Monday 10/20 Real Food Desserts
Creating and eating your own homemade desserts using only clean ingredients is a guilt-free indulgence indeed. From cookies and bars to frozen treats there are so many ways to satisfy that sweet tooth without sacrificing your health.
Friday 10/24 Real Food Challenge Celebration Dinner
After 21 days of eating real, we have a feeling you aren't going to want to go back to your old way of looking at food and THAT is surely something to celebrate!

Now in 2014 we will be celebrating bigger than ever.
