Thanks to my oldest daughter, we had this beautiful dessert for Christmas.

I didn't get any pictures of the cake being made, but caught up with her here.
She split the cake in three and made this fantastic ricotta filling (that I plan on using in another dessert at a later date!)
Whipped up the frosting....
And voilà... Chocolate Cassata!
Wish I'd taken a better picture, but we were in such a hurry to taste it : )
I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!
