A belated but heartfelt thank you to Elle Decor India for extending a lovely gesture to me: my first contributing editorial!
I'd show you the pictures, but you've seen them a zillion times (they're Trevor Tondro's).
To celebrate, my King made lovely Ricotta Umbriaca (Drunken Ricotta). He adds chocolate for...well, since does one need a reason? Putting it in the freezer makes it like ice cream. It's no-cook and so easy even kids or lazy adults like me can make it.
Ricotta Umbriaca Mocha
by Todd Foster
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/3 cup confectioner’s sugar
1 Tbs instant coffee
1 Tbs (heaping) unsweetened cocoa powder
2 oz of coffee liqueur (optional)
Stir in all ingredients and chill in the fridge for a pudding-like texture.
Place in the freezer for an hour or so and it is like ice cream.
Yield: 2-3 servings
Until next time, stay shabby!
