How to Make Homemade Ricotta Cheese

It's hard to get back into the swing of things after such a lovely holiday break with all my sons home under one roof, but here we go into 2011.  I sure did a lot of cooking, baking and cleaning with all the entertaining we did and having family come from out of town.  What fun we had.  And I had such a picture perfect day for my birthday - sitting in front of a roaring fire with all my boys, watching my favorite Lord of the Rings movies and knitting to my heart's desire.  It just couldn't get any better than that.

Honeymoon Ravioli 


I have so many recipe files that I've kept over the years, it's amazing to me sometimes.  Ever since I was young  and really started cooking, I've cut out every little recipe idea that appealed to me.  It's fun to go back to those really old files and see what inspired me back then. Sometimes I find something that I absolutely forgot about, like this recipe.  

When Brian and I were on our honeymoon (25 years ago) we really didn't have any money.  But we splurged one evening and went to an Italian restaurant, where Brian ordered this ravioli with five cheeses.  He raved so much about it that when I got home, I contacted Bon Appetit and asked them to get the recipe.  I was sent the recipe, hammered out on an old typewriter on a piece of paper.  I made the ravioli and then filed the recipe away and totally forgot about it - until I came across it recently and thought it would be nice to make this ravioli again for him. The restaurant is long gone, but it's a timeless recipe.
