One of the easiest cheeses to make is ricotta. Trust me on this one. It may seem daunting, but it's really not. Homemade ricotta is cheaper than store bought and richer and creamier. Once you see how easy it is to make it, you will never use store bought again. So now that you have your rich, creamy homemade ricotta, put it on a toasted baguette with a bit of prosciutto and just a touch of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Kick off your backyard bbq with this tasty appetizer and amaze your friends how something so easy to make can taste so good!
