R & R

Ricotta -
for some strange reason, I've been craving Ricotta.  I buy the low fat version and give into the craving.
I make a couple of things with it:
Baked Ricotta and Lemon Ricotta Pancakes.
Baked Ricotta is the world's easiest way to enjoy the cheese:
you simply drain the Ricotta in a strainer suspended over a bowl.
Add whatever you wish to add to it - my latest had a couple of tablespoons of Black cherry jam that I needed to finish.  Mix well. Spread on a greased Pie Dish. Add any fruit topping you wish (mine had cherry halves.) Bake at 375 F for about 35 min.  Let it cool before you cut it.

I am back at it:)
well, as long as the weather cooperates. Currently, it's just too hot to run.


  1. Mmm, this sounds good! Looking at your other posts, I see you are a creative cook. Your recipes sound wonderful!
    I'm not cooking here, just trying to eat up our restaurant leftovers. =/ I wish that they cooked the way you do! LOL


  2. Thank you Jehanne. :)
    I'm aiming for simple dishes - but frequently get sidetracked by wonderful recipes that a girl just MUST try:)
