Homemade Cheese Recipes

Has anyone here made their own cheeses? I found a bunch of various make it yourself cheese recipes on line that seem simple, but I have never tried any of them yet. Have any of you? If so which ones did you try and what recipes do you recommend?

You can make cottage cheese by bringing skim milk to a simmer, then remove from heat and add one tablespoon vinegar right away. It will curdle. Then leave to drain through several layers of cheese cloth. But in a bowl, add a little cream and salt and chill. It is delicious.

I would like to make this cheese, but I am afraid it might spoil in the heat. I live in Dubai and our weather is very hot. Leaving milk out of the fridge for a day or two is kind of scary.

Please advise. Is there an easier way of making cheese at home?
