Happy Cinco de Mayo, everyone! To celebrate, James and I made yummy margaritas. We finally busted out the margarita set we got for our wedding (thank you, Glenda!)

But the real treat was dessert. I made baked ricotta cakes with berries. Oh my!

excuse the crappy nighttime picture, and imagine the sweet goodness!

here is the recipe

mix together 1 cup ricotta cheese, 4 tbsp honey, 2 egg whites, 1 tsp vanilla extract until smooth. Pour the ricotta mixture into 4 ramekins and bake for 20 minutes at350 degrees  or until ricotta is golden.
Meanwhile, cook 4 cups of fresh berries in a sauce pan (set aside about 1/4 of the berries for garnish). Use a little water and heat until soft.

Pop ricotta cakes out and pour berries and berry sauce. Eat up! It’s so good!
