Year of the cheesecake: Buddy Valastro’s Italian Ricotta cheesecake. It leaked OUT of the pan-a lot. I think I need to drain the ricotta. Also, I learned that if you have the smallest amount of egg yolk in your whites stiff peaks won’t form. It is true, they weren’t making that up.
Also, I discovered I don’t like Italian cheesecakes. I like cream cheese cheesecakes. But I looked pretty.
