Thank you!

It's not that I can't find it, I just can't find it at a price I'm willing to pay for it.

No kidding. I have a great tiramisu recipe, but who wants to pay for the mascarpone? Thanks for the recipe! Have you tried it yet? If so, how does it compare?

I found a 'recipe' to make it that uses whip cream and lemon juice boiled together, then you let it sit over night to thicken up. I was going to make it at Thanksgiving for a cheese cake idea I had, but I wasn't able too yet.
