Ricotta, Risotto and Whoopie Pies...

This week has been filled with good eats! First of all, I made cheese! Ricotta! It was so easy and yummy, so proud of myself! I saw the recipe here a while back and was convinced I should give cheese making a try and I am so happy with the results. Woo-hoo!

After making said ricotta, there is whey (by-product) and it just about killed me to think it would all be wasted.  So I googled it and found a whey bread recipe.  It also turned out delicious! I don't remember where I found the recipe, but it was super easy!
Ingredients: 2cups whey, 1 TBSP honey, 2 TBSP oil, 1 package yeast, and about 3 cups flour
Mix all ingredients, then place in a greased bowl and rise to double.  Punch down and put in a bread pan. Bake @350 for 1 hour. Mmmmm.  The bread did not last long!

I had a cooking lesson this week too! Karen from the Accommodating Cook stopped in and taught April, Mrs. T and me how to make lemon chicken risotto! Fun! and double yum!!!! Seriously awesome...

Also made root beer float whoopie pies (vanilla cakes with root beer creme filling) is good.
