How do you define a homemade meal? Is it simply a meal that you create at home and don’t buy fully prepared or a meal where all ingredients are made from scratch? However you think of a home-cooked meal, a simple recipe for a delicious result is ideal. And when looking for potential meals, you can always add an ingredient to a recipe to get whatever you define as a homemade meal… and it can be as simple as reaching for a gallon of milk. Here are three easy milk recipes to create delicious homemade cheeses using the whole milk already in your fridge.
