Strawberry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
I really liked this recipe. Following others' advice I only used 2 packages of cream cheese instead of 3, and it tasted great, although I guess it did make it smaller (shorter). I also used fresh strawberries instead of frozen ones (the reason I made this - I bought strawberries on sale) and I used one pound of fresh strawberries and didn't add any sugar to that. I figured that the cheesecake will be sweet enough (especially with the one less block of cream cheese). Baked in water bath, left in oven for additional hour etc. made sure it didn't crack. The four stars is because I don't find it particularly special - but definitely a solidly delicious recipe. All my friends loved it and it was gone very quickly!

Avocado Quick Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2011
I loved this! My friends and I had an "iron chef" style potluck party where avocado was the secret ingredient (we all had to bring a dish made with avocado). Not content with making yet another sushi or guacamole dish, I searched this site with the ingredient avocado, and came across this. It was super moist and tasted wonderful - although people who don't like the spices' flavors should consider scaling them down. But for me it was delicious. Thanks to another reviewer's idea, I made muffins instead of bread, and baked at 375 for 20min. I halved the recipe and that made a dozen muffins. Like many others have said, it tastes of the spices and citrus, because avocado quite frankly doesn't have much of a taste. I've always thought that avocados are more of a texture thing than a taste thing, and this recipe really shows that; the avocados makes the bread super moist and brings out the flavors of the spices and the zest. The pecans and the raisins definitely add huge points. And finally, doesn't avocado bread just sound cool? My friends were all intrigued and the muffins were gone in no time :)
