One of my efforts yesterday in the CrazyKitchen produced this wonderful Cheesecake, along with blueberry topping...  I use this cheesecake recipe, as I don't need a springform pan, and as there are just the two of us...  Should I make a "real" cheesecake, I'd probably forego meals and dive in!  Since I had berries in the freezer, I went ahead and made a topping - had to "wing it" as I couldn't find a recipe that I liked.  What I ended up with, is a whole berry syrup type topping, that I decided must not be added to the little slice of heaven, until time to serve each piece!  I can't say that I outdid myself... the cheesecake rec seems to be foolproof...  Last time around, I opened a can of cherry pie filling, but opted yesterday, to use the frozen blueberries.  I'm not STRICT homemade, but I do prefer, when I have time and the inclination!

After the photo shoot, we each had a sliver... which certainly made up for a mediocre dinner meal.  Would it be a social faux pas to dive into the pan face first?  I'm guessing yes, but must also realize that I'd miss out on the blueberry sauce!

So, all, be happy, be crazy!  There's bound to be more to come! LOL!!

Thanks, all, but I'm in fears that I should refer to this as a cream cheese pie, rather than cheesecake... all a matter of semantics, I suppose! I have trouble keeping crackers in the house for the crust... If J finds them, they're all gone by time I want some again! Terry, let me know when you make this... I even forgot to add milk once, and it still turned out fine! Talk about a "can't kill it" recipe! Be well, all!

About Me
Started cooking many years ago, and learned as I went. First meal may have been "steak & chips" at age 15, in Birmingham England, where I lived for several years. Mostly grew up in MI, transplanted to the desert 30yrs ago, or so. Favorite cookbook is "Better Homes", also enjoy "Great British Cooking, a well kept secret." Hesitate to call myself "expert," but friends do rave...
My favorite things to cook
Italian has been my "specialty" for some time, and my "signature" meal is Lasagne, salad, garlic bread, which I first made 20yrs ago... from SCRATCH, very first time I made it. (Never again, folks...) Now start with a big jar of sauce!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanks to my heritage, I have enjoyed trying foods from different cultures. We still have beer battered fish, and chips of course; ground meat dishes often, chicken occasionally, pork too. I would love to submit a bean dip recipe, however, my ex who gave me the original has passed, and I have no way to verify that it didn't come from another source! I also enjoy British cooking (with a few yankee twists) and once made Plum puddings, also known as Christmas puddings, as far as I know... what an ordeal that was, but well worth the effort. Today, there is mail order!
My cooking triumphs
Greatest triumph was not too long ago, when I held a sit down dinner for 12, Lasagne being the entree. It was a fund raiser I chose to sponsor, and am proud to say that "we" raised over $1000 from that meal alone, minimum donation being $25. All proceeds collected were donated; my partner and I provided the meal and beverages.
My cooking tragedies
MEATLOAF of all things! Went through a stage of "winging" it each time, and I pulled one after another out of the oven that were almost unedible. As yet, not too big on baking... no sweet tooth here! Have dabbled, but find doughs/pastries especially difficult, perhaps as it's 90 degrees in my kitchen much of the year.
