    Ohh this sounds good! I just might have to try this. My aunt just gave me a couple things of really good ricotta that she sells and these were extra 'samples' she had! I also have a ton of apples and pears from the same weekend away.

    Cheesecake intimidates me though. The couple times I've tried making it I wasn't impressed so I dont try it much. I was never a fan of cheesecake until recently too so maybe that was my problem.
