Blueberry Ricotta Squares
Finally...exactly what I needed. Have been buying fresh sweet cherries like a madwoman. Even splurged on a cherry pitter (OXO, fabulous). Have made a couple muffin recipes and several batches of Cherry Compote for the freezer (David Leibovitz's recipe). Have been trying to find some sort of cake to use the cherries in (seems like they all use pie filling). Gave up on that and decided to find a recipe to use the last cup of ricotta cheese I had. Came across this recipe and thouht...why not try with fresh cherries. So I subbed chopped cherries for the blueberries and almond extract (1/4 tsp) for the lemon extract and for the vanilla (1/4 tsp). Just took it out of the oven and had a piece while still warm. It is heavenly. Glad I cut down on the almond extract in the bottom layer. Just right. The top did not brown evenly (as mentioned by another reviewer). I think that is just the way that combo of eggs and ricotta does. Well, off to get another piece! ;-)) then off to the store for more ricotta. I do have blueberries to use up!

Cheesecake Bars
Fixed these yesterday for an afternoon card game, twelve attendees. Everyone LOVED it and wanted recipe. In the interest of full-disclosure, I did a couple modifications (the way my mother used to fix). Pecans instead of walnuts-personal preference. Also, put a bit more than half of pastry mixture in bottom. Baked for 15 minutes. Poured cream cheese mixture over. Crumbled remaining pastry mixture over it. Baked for 20 minutes.

Sun-Dried Tomato and Pesto Cheese Spread
Yum yum!! I made it per directions except: (1) used reduced-fat cream cheese; and, (2) layered cream cheese, tomato, cream cheese, pesto, cream cheese. I do wish I'd used up all the cream cheese - maybe added to tomato mixture - which I found a bit overpowering. The dinner guests were totally impressed and fought for the left-overs.
