Welcome Jason! And I think you could easily make all the cheese that you eat. There are some simple cheddar taste type cheeses (check out Caerphilly) for great sandwiches and oodles of easy other cheeses. I too thought I'd never be able to make the more fancy bloomy cheeses I love but those are actually the easiest. Caerphilly, by the way, only needs to age a few short weeks so it's a great confidence builder.
This forum has great info and for a beginner I (and I still consider myself one) like to recommend this site that has videos of various cheese makings. http://www.littlegreencheese.com/
Way down on the right edge you'll see a list of cheese types including Caerphilly. Those links will take you to recipes. Wish he'd have the links higher up on the page but they're easy to find if you know what you're looking for.
Good luck and share photos and stories!
