Is it really cheesecake?

I found a recipe the other day for a Ricotta Cheesecake with Pine Nuts and Lemon Drizzle. I am making it for dessert tonight becuase Stephanie and I are both on diets and this is a South Beach recipe. But my question is, if there is no cream cheese in the recipe at all, can they still really call it a cheese cake?

Today has been a busy day, and I am taking a blog break. So far I have done dishes, one bathroom, cleaned my entry way, dusted my entertainment center, and windexed the tv. There is still more to do, like making the cheesecake, but I think that is plenty to have done before lunch. Bathrooms were supposed to get done yesterday, but we ended up at the doctors all afternoon. Turns out William has a slight ear infection, and we all got swabbed for Strep. None of us have sore throats at all, just cold symptoms. My friends little girl had the same symptoms and it turned out to be strep. We have amused the doctor, since Nathan is positive, but seriously, not one sore throat in the bunch. We should find out soon it the rest of us are carriers, that is what they think is wrong with Nathan. She said something about being a carrier, but having a cold too, and that we are just really unlucky. Either way, at least the Air Force pays for the meds!

I have been bad about doing the picture a day thing, but it has been difficult finding inspiration lately with everyone feeling yucky. I do love looking at everyone elses pictures though. I am so glad we all do this, it is nice to get to know everyone so well.

Ricotta is a cheese...so it COULD be a 'cheese'cake. Sorry about Nathan's being sick. Hope he gets better soon!

Great minds... I was thinking the exact same thing that Melinda was! You'll have to let us know how it turns out :) And I love your picture of Mark sleeping with your little one. I've always liked pictures of Steve sleeping with one or the other of the kids!
