What’s a good healthy snack add on, rich in calcium and easy as 1-2-3? Why cheese of course! But then ain’t plain cheese a bore at times? Of course you’ll find an assortment of different kinds of cheese concoctions to choose from at the store but the thing is you can take matters into your own hands and veer away from store bought preservative laden varieties.
So here’s a quick question, why not make your own herbed cheese at home? I promise you won’t spend too much time on it and you’ll save some money too!
