Home Made Farmer's Cheese
I followed the comments and used vinegar instead of lemon juice. Also added quite a bit of salt (couple of pinches) before adding the vinegar. I used 1/4 cup white distilled vinegar with 1litre of milk just to try. Ended up with a small fist sized cheese that I rolled in crushed black pepper.

Caramels
After reading other reviews, I took this off the heat at 245 deg. Recipe wise, I used 200gm of salted butter and cardomom infused evaporated milk. I poured my caramel into a silicone lasagne tray mould and a silicone 8 x 8" square brownie / fudge pan mould. I did not grease or line either. I took a blunt knife round the top edge to free the caramel from the sides of the mould and then simply pulled it out. THe set was soft and chewy. Perhaps a tiny bit too soft..... I might leave it on a degree or two more next time. The caramel was really nice. It took about 45 mins in total to get to pouring temperature. Portion wise, mine were pretty big bits - at least 1" sqare and I had about 150+ of those - so wrapping took some time ! Cutting it was a breeze - no problem at all. I have uploaded a photo (mine is the one with the knife at the top). I made two large boxes of caramels, one smaller box and 4 gift bags plus some more left to spare. Good recipe to make for including in Christmas hampers. Next time, I'll add some macadamia muts or pecans. I think I'd wrap half as is and coat the other half in chocolate. This is definately one for writing in my recipe book. Thanks for sharing

Chocolate Zucchini Cake III
I've rated this 4 stars as I think the amount of oil does make this cake a big greasy. Could easily be reduced to 1 cup by adding some applesauce or milk. I'd be tempeted to throw in a load of chocolate chips too for more of a real chocolate hit. It's very moist and quite a fragile type cake. Not too sweet and can carry icing or a glaze well. Refrigerated it should keep a couple of days nicely and freezes well. I added 4tsp of cinnamon and 1/2tsp nutmeg. It was still subtle.
