Extremely easy to make. Just dump, mix, roll. You could obviously make them larger than I do, but I think this size works well for meatball subs or spaghetti and meatballs. Plus if they're smaller they'll cook faster. Come on, let's make meatballs together.
Sausage, ground beef, salt and pepper, breadcrumbs, milk, egg, parsley, basil and oregano.
Baking is a lot of fun, but it’s even more fun when you get to enjoy it with someone else... especially a tiny cute someone else. Before baking with kids I thought “this is gonna be really messy”. Then I remembered that even baking without kids is really messy. Well, at least for me it is. Don’t be afraid to dive in and get dirty, the chocolate will be the reward— along with the fun you’ll both have making it. Plus, just look at how cute those hands are! So let’s make chocolate cake together.
It seems crazy, I know. Must be a lot of work, right? Nope. Must be really hard? Nope. Must be more expensive? Nope. It’s rather fascinating that only a few things plus some heat can get you creamy fresh mozzarella. Honestly, the whole time I was making this I just kept thinking, “this isn’t gonna work. This isn’t gonna work.” But then, it worked. I had cheese. I made cheese from a gallon of milk. I didn’t die and I made cheese. It’s pretty exciting, if you get excited about that kind of thing. There are only two things you need to get that you likely don’t already have: citric acid and rennet. They’re not scary things, just some powder and a liquid. Plus when you count the cost of how many times you can use each of them... it’s definitely cheaper to make fresh mozzarella than to buy it. At Kroger the cheapest price I could find was $4.79 for a pound of mozzarella. This recipe makes 1lb 4oz and comes out to only $.34 ($.14 for citric acid and $.20 for rennet) more than the price of a gallon of milk, which I got for $1.88. You can use a 2oz bottle of rennet for 48 batches of mozzarella. You can use a 7.5oz container of citric acid for 25 batches. Maybe you still don’t think it’s worth buying two extra things. That’s fine. But know that if you ever change your mind, it’ll be really simple and the recipe is right here. Let’s make mozzarella together.
