Homemade Mascarpone Cream Cheese

Video Recipe - Tiramisu is one of my favorite desserts. Unfortunately, it requires large amounts of mascarpone. It is a cream cheese that costs an arm and a leg here in Denmark. And a kidney. Fortunately, it is one of the easiest cheeses to make yourself, and it requires only two ingredients.

Homemade Feta Cheese
Video Recipe - It is a LOT of fun to make your own cheese and it's actually pretty easy. It does takes a little bit of utensils and ingredients that you don't normally have, but they are easy to obtain and it is definitely worth the effort.

So if you can make a kind of cheese you can actually make them all. Feta cheese is one of the easiest and fastest. And you don't have to wait a month before it can be eaten. Therefore, it is an ideal starting cheese.

Scalloped Potatoes - Creamed Potatoes

Pulled Pork - that melts in the mouth
Video Recipe - The best piece of meat on the pig is the neck roast. Tender and fat marbled. If you cook it properly, it becomes so tender that it can be pulled apart with two forks. A short stay in the grill make for a a mild bacon flavor. This recipe is ideal for guests. Most of it can be done a long time in advance. It's just as easy to make four as it is to make one. It's hard to do wrong, and everyone is surprised at how well pork can taste. It is also excellent for dinner later, in a good home-baked bun.
