Later for dinner I decided on a brown rice combo ... a can of tuna, artichoke bottoms, olives, black beans, pimentos, and of course some chopped celery and fresh tomatoes.
First the rice was cooked in the rice cooker.
Next the tuna, beans, olives, artichoke bottoms, pimentos were all drained. Next olive oil in frying pan and all of that added in along with celery and tomatoes.
After sauteéing awhile in went the rice and then ricotta cheese.
Mixed well and heated through. OMGOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Saturday. Ciao.

National Cheesecake Day
As food holidays go, this is one of the tastiest of treats.
Here is a super tasty cheesecake I made some time back.
And.... instead of the traditional cheesecake I made it with the new Philly Jalapeño Cream Cheese...
This recipe for 6 mini cheesecakes:
Make the crust with graham cracker crumbs, 1 cup + 3 T sugar + 3 T melted butter. Mix well and press into bottom of pan. Bake 10 minutes at 325º. (You will have leftover crumbs.)
Then in electric mixer put 2 tubs of the Jalapeño cream cheese with 1 t. lemon extract (instead of vanilla), and 1/2 cup sugar...mix well. Then add 1/2 cup Greek yogurt (instead of sour cream), mixing well.... and then add 2 eggs, mixing well. Spoon into crusts and bake for 45 minutes at 325º.
OMGOOD!!!! Spicy, so for those of you with delicate palates, don't make it for you...but make if for the person in the house who likes SPICE!
These are sooooooooooooo good they should be illegal!!!
