Good Wine Under $20 Haniela's: How To Make Farmer's Cheese Farmer's Cheese is a dairy product, some call it curd cheese in the US. If you never had this cheese I'd say it's a cross between ricotta and cottage cheese. Ricotta cheese is made from whey and Farmer's cheese is made from cow's milk. They are very similar to each other but I personally find Farmer's cheese creamier. In Slovakia this cheese is like bread. Today I made my own Farmer's cheese using only few very common kitchen ingredients.

SheSimmers | Thai Home Cooking 2011 » Pete Drinks One of my big beer obsessions is exploring the ever growing London brewing scene; the London Brewers page I maintain here isn’t so much a public service as a ‘to drink’ list. Here, we pay our first visit to a brewpub – specifically, the Bull in Highgate which has the added benefit of being the brewery geographically closest to my house! The Bull has been there for a very long time, but it’s only a matter of months since Dan Fox took the place over, refurbished it into a stylish space and somehow managed to cram a small, 2.5 barrel brewery – the London Brewing Company – into the corner of the kitchen. Ok, so it’s not going to put Fullers out of business any time soon but despite the size they aim to keep four of their own brews on tap at any one time. They also manage to sell one of the more impressive collection of craft beer from around the world – draft and bottled – that I’ve come across in a pub. Beer Street is their 4.0% Best Bitter. Golden Mean is a lighter in both senses, at 3.7%.

Tips for Tiny House Living You might remember when I posted about when I visited a friend who lived in an even tinier house than mine? That friend, Cara, shared this lovely guest post with her reasons behind living in a tiny house, and how she and her husband make it work. Though most people don't live in a house as small as hers, and wouldn't even consider it, these tips are worthwhile for anyone who is interested in downsizing their home, and how to make the best use of less space. My husband and I have been married for two years and three months. We've never lived in a big house—nor do we want to, for a variety of reasons. First of all, we are both slightly nervous in wide-open spaces and prefer the comfort of walls around us. Our first apartment—which was in the suburbs, actually in the same little town where Penny's husband grew up—was 183 square feet. Fortunately, we moved out of there and back into the city around six months later. Here's how we make it work: -Use the space on the walls!
