Since I married into an Italian family, it is totally necessary that I learn how to cook Italian food. I have always wondered how to make homemade mozzarella, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity. It wasn't as hard as I thought! P.S. you might recognize this DIY monogram cutting board. I use it all of the time! For single servings, I think it's fun to dish the salad out onto these mini cutting boards/cheese boards.
