Oddly enough, I am not going to use any of my word count here to try and sell you anything (so, please keep reading). Instead, I am going to make good on a comment Jerry Galipeau made in a previous entry and share one of my favorite recently discovered recipes with you. It is a recipe that involves chocolate, cheese, and cookies (really, now, how can that be bad?): a chocolate-ricotta ice box cake, courtesy of Martha Stewart.
Because, as you know, we publishing-types are sticklers for copyright issues, I am going to give you a link to the recipe, rather than typing it out here myself, (though I will admit to “borrowing” the picture above):
Having now made this cake twice in the last month, I can assure you that it is not only easy but decadent – and a real crowd pleaser. Plus, you don’t even have to turn on an oven to make it, and you can make it up to 2 days in advance. Even my husband Charlie, who for some bizarre reason dislikes most other kinds of cheesecake, agrees that this is one of his new favorite desserts.
I hope the weekend ahead gives each and every one of you the opportunity to make something sweet, eat something sweet, and enjoy the good things in life (like chocolate) that make it clear that there is a God who loves each and every one of us very, very much. And for that, and for so much more, we’ve gotta sing, gotta pray. Have a great weekend!
