Homemaking Mondays: Homemade cream cheese and violets

Do you like making cheese?  I do.
I had used up the cream cheese I'd bought and then realized that I needed 
some to make my daughter's birthday cake. Ooops!  
I'm so glad that the Lord Jesus has given me an interest in making things from scratch. 
I didn't have to make a special trip to town for it.  

I pulled out a gallon of milk, heated it up, and added some lemon juice.  
After it gave up the curds, I strained it for about 15 minutes. 
Then I took the cheese and put in in my food processor until it was smooth. 
It was so nice! Oh, I also added a pinch of salt to the cheese while it was processing. 
 I also had a lot of whey left and it goes so well in biscuits and pancakes. 
I love the yellow colour. 

I had lots of nice cheese to make her chocolate mint swirl cheesecake. 
It was so delicious! 
I will definitely be making this again!

I used the rest of the cream cheese in enchiladas...
that I had made for the first time. 
My family enjoyed them so much that I'll be making them again. 

I'll leave you with a pretty picture of my violets that are blooming 
so amazingly on my desk right now.

Thanks so much for dropping by! 

Love and Prayers,
