Our foodie friend came over the other night and we made ricotta cheese and then put the ricotta into an awesome veggie lasagna. Read her telling of it on her blog, appropriately named “Everybody Loves Cheese.”

With my new found ricotta cheese making skills, I’m getting pumped about making a ricotta cupcake. There will definitely be one coming soon.
