Recipe :: Homemade Ricotta Cheese

This past weekend, I embarked on a little therapeutic endeavor - I made dinner! Yes, this has become a rarity given the amount of time I spend making delicious sweet & savory caramels for my Etsy shop! {wink}

I discovered early on in my years living in NYC that cooking was very therapeutic for me. After creating an amazing meal, I would be calmer, clear-headed and have a feeling of accomplishment. There's something satisfying about setting out on a task and finishing it and if the results are delicious, all the better! {trust me, I've had my set of failures...ahem, the burnt towel from this morning...shhh} Thus, while I'm in the midst of a very busy wedding season, I decided to make homemade ricotta cheese. One of my absolute favorite luxurious and savory treats to create!
I had a very happy husband and I admit, I had lasagna for breakfast, lunch and dinner on Monday!

So for all of my followers that are seeking something delicious, easy and brag worthy, try this Ricotta recipe that will take about 20 minutes!

Full recipe and a few photos after the jump!
