Growing up my father did most of the cooking in our home because...well...he was a chef and my mom's cooking wasn't that great so thank goodness for his skills.
BUT my mom did make some pretty good things and one of the things she loved was making this Ricotta Cake. Click here to view video
As you can see in the video it's very easy to make and a huge crowd pleaser.
