RICOTTA FRITTERS WITH HEIRLOOM SALAD

who doesn’t like a fritter every now and then? these ricotta fritters will not disappoint!

makes 10 servings 

Ingredients: 
3/4 cup self rising flour
• 2 cups ricotta cheese
• 2 egg whites
• 3 heirloom tomatoes chopped
• 2/3 cups fresh basil chopped
• 1 sprig fresh dill
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
• salt and pepper to taste

• In a large bowl combine 2 cups ricotta cheese with 3/4 cups self rising flour. stir in chopped basil and mix batter until evenly dispersed or a similar consistency to pancake batter. Add salt and pepper to taste. In a small bowl beat two egg whites until soft peaks form (an electric beater will save you a lot of time). Set aside. Set a nonstick pan on medium heat and pour 2 tablespoons olive oil. Make a small dollop with the palms of your hand with the riccota batter and dip it in the egg whites. Flatten slightly and place onto the heated olive oil. Cook for 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Repeat process until finished.

For the salad: In a medium sized bowl combine the 3 chopped heirloom tomatoes with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 sprig of dill finely chopped, 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, and salt and pepper to taste. Serve together and garnish both dishes with basil.

MAKE IT / WALL HANGING

today we’re featuring a very cool wall hanging DIY from michelle bablo who is an NY based event designer, stylist and florist!

“i’ve always loved the weavings of fellow Brooklynite Maryanne Moodie – the colors, the textures, the interesting shapes. so when i moved into a new studio space, i wanted to create a textile-based wall hanging that had a similar vibe & made a big impact in my space! what i love about this project is that you don’t need any special tools & it’s extremely easy to make. plus, depending on what kind of yarn you use, it can cost as little as $10 in materials. there are also lots of great ways to customize it – you can paint the dowel a bright color, hang it from a branch or piece of ribbon, or even use different thicknesses of yarn. my cat, unsurprisingly, also LOVED this project – tassels make the perfect cat toy.” – michelle
