It looks great!  I make cheese at least once a week, you did an awesome job.   Smiley

Thanks for your help with the pic!  I see you have sheep.  Do you use sheep milk for your cheese?

Actually MissingWillow helped me with the pic as well! 
It was pretty fun to make and definitely makes you feel fancy when you serve it up to friends. This particular cheese went to a garden party!

It's easier than you might think...I know I was a bit nervous going into it.  Something about pouring vinegar into milk is very unsettling, but the result was tasty and I will definitely do this again!

8 cups whole milk
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1-1.5 teaspoon kosher salt

fine mesh seive
clean kitchen towel
cheese press- I improvised and used a bowl, you can too

For more info, pictures and directions see the tutorial here: http://ladiesofcomicazi.com/2013/03/27/how-to-i-made-cheese-gromit/

Thanks!  We have already started hoarding jars and checking out our local comic shop for more figures.
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Super Hero Snow Globes (with tutorial link) on: December 26, 2012 06:13:22 AM
I'm going to straight up say, that this project has very quickly become a favorite.  In fact...some of the globes that were meant for gifts, may or may not be scattered around my home and office.  I just couldn't help myself!

This was a fairly inexpensive project.  Jars were collected (this was a great excuse to eat those last few teaspoons of jam or honey).  The only costs were liquid glycerin, glitter the figures and the tiles we used to raise the figures. For figures we largely used Hero Clix and Lego mini-figures, but I also grabbed one of those "Toobz" of plastic figures you see at Michael's.  It was mythological creatures and really came in handy.

Tiny Dazzler in a spice jar:

A pirate and a mermaid in a mustard jar:

Iceman vs. Icicle in a jam jar:

And my Absolute favorite- Iron Man with Tree in a Goya honey jar:

6  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Healthy Superbowl snacks? on: January 30, 2008 10:11:14 AM
I'm supposed to go to a Superbowl party on Sunday (which is funny since I am not a big football fan-though I enjoy a good gathering). 

I wanted to bring something yummy, but also kinda healthy since I am trying to be more mindful of what I eat.  Any suggestions for something healthy that won't scream health food?

Great Job!

I don't have any specific ideas, but I would check out IKEA.  They have some great and affordable organizing solutions.
9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: LOST season 4 premiere party on: January 18, 2008 11:56:26 AM
Oooo...I love LOST.  The sodas look great and the fish biscuts are a really good idea.
Maybe you could get some island fruit, bananas, papaya...
Maybe some peanut butter for Charile (remember he tried to cheer Claire up by pretending he had a jar).
I'll keep thinking....
10  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Lettuce Wrap Ideas? on: January 18, 2008 07:22:03 AM
I was going to suggest cold cuts and cheese....but you have already done that.  What about steamed veggies?  You can steam carrots and green beans in your microwave and maybe add your favorite salad dressing to the wrap? And some cheese.....I love cheese.
Another idea might be tofu or chicken hot dogs.
