I love reading the Williams-Sonoma catalogues that come in the mail. Not because I'm going to run down and fork over big bucks for all the tempting equipment they sell, but the recipes look fabulous. One of the recent catalogues featured a recipe for slow-cooked cannellini beans & sausages… MORE

Ricotta Cake
Made this for guests last night and it was a huge success. I had concerns because at least one doesn't like cheesecake or ricotta. They all asked me to make it again. I followed the directions, using 3 of the eggs in the cake mix and one mixed into the 2-15 oz containers of ricotta. I resisted the urge to reduce the sugar and was glad because the sweetness was perfect. I also baked it in an Angel Food cake tube pan and added a cup of fresh blueberries. Didn't need to adjust the baking time or temp. Let it cool in the fridge while I made dinner, sprinkled powdered sugar on top and it was beautiful. The blueberries were scattered throughout, not at the bottom (top once flipped out of pan).

Beef Nacho Casserole
Yummy! I made some last minute changes because while I was making it I found out I was having extra people for dinner! I doubled everything, but was out of ground beef. I thawed some pulled pork and added it. I also added 1 cup of black beans and topped it with olives. The casserole was almost gone in a matter of minutes!
