The recipe comes from the Frugal Gormet, and is the easiest way possible to come up with cheese. Using a pint of plain yogurt (nonfat, whole, it doesn't much afftect the taste) Mix in any spices you desire, basil, garlic, pepper, some add a little sugar to counteract the bitterness of the yogurt. Using a double layer of cheese cloth, pour the yogurt into the cloth, and tie above the sink to drain. Leave it there for up to 60 hours, depending on the consistency you want. You won't get anything much more dense than cream cheese, but it is tasty. I prefer a sort of herb flavoring, if anyone comes up with another interesting flavoring, please let me know. One of the things the Frugal Gormet reccommends is a chocolate sort of thing from cocoa powder and sugar.
