Vanilla Whipped Ricotta:
1 (16-ounce) container whole-milk ricotta cheese, drained
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Happy World Oceans Day!I hopped around the US today via satellite (this morning) to talk about one of my favorite subjects: sustainable seafood!
Check out my spot from San Diego Living
Happy World Oceans Day (Wednesday, June 8)! Celebrate with me (on this great day and in the future) by choosing to buy / enjoy sustainable seafood. Sustainable seafood is seafood that is caught or farmed in ways that are friendlier to the environment. And finding it is easy – just download the Seafood Watch App which tells you what seafood is a best choice and what to avoid. E-A-S-Y!!!
To spread the word about the Seafood Watch App and sustainable seafood, I will be beamed into your TV sets Wednesday morning/afternoon to get this World Ocean’s Day party started and share some easy and delicious sustainable seafood recipes. If you live in one of these cities – tune in on Wednesday and I’ll see you soon!
