German Foods - Ricotta Cheesecake From My Oma

Since Oma (Mrs. Ute Wieland) doesn't have a blog, she mailed me the recipe for participating in the event A.W.E.D German. I would like to share it with all of you.

Here I would also like to share some few words about her and Opa. Well what is Oma and Opa? It means "Grandmother and Grandfather" in German. They were the German Opa and Oma of my children.  I met them 6 months after we had been in Germany. She was very fond of us and our family. We used live in 1st floor above them. She made us all feel at home. And slowly we all became very close. During the 2 and 1/2 yr we spent with them she had with us during all times (happy and sad). They had been a great support to us in a foreign land.

We used get Salads and fruits everyday in the evening. My children used to get some sweet things from her everyday. She introduced and taught us to like German Food. They were part of our life.
Back at home now we miss them a lot.

Though she is not so very fond of sweets but still since I like cakes and sweets she has send me these recipes for the event.
