Cheesecake in a Jar Recipe

Cheesecake in a Jar Recipe
I’m fairly certain that I’ve discussed my lack of love for the great outdoors, so it’s safe to say you’ll never hear me writing about long hikes in the woods or camping anywhere other than on a deck chair at a five star resort (Hey, I can dream, right?). Not to say that I am not fond of the fresh air and scenery, I just like to keep a screen between me and the bugs. Needless to say, I don’t last long at picnics in the park or anywhere outdoors for that matter. Usually an annoying fly or buzzing bee will send me into a fit within 20 minutes and I’ll sit there contemplating my escape route or the idea of eating in my air conditioned vehicle. Problem is, I am a big pan of picnic food. Hot dogs, potato salad and watermelon rank pretty high on my hierarchy of good eats, so I’ll usually suffer through it as long as I am armed with cold bottle of water and a fly swatter. Then, a couple of friends came up with the idea of a virtual picnic. Eat Smart Eat Local Eat Sustainably Eat Green Eat Out

new york cheesecake New Yorkers have a reputation for being pushy and over-the-top — these are things you learn when you leave the city for a weekend, and a ticketing agent at the airport in Tulsa, for example, informs you that you’re so much more polite than she thought a New Yorker would be. We apparently like things bolder and taller and shinier and more intense and while I’m not sure if this really applies to your average straphanger commuting from walk-up to cubicle and back again everyday, I am absolutely certain that it applies to our cheesecakes. (No, the other kind, silly.) How is a New York Cheesecake unlike any other cheesecake? To begin, it’s very very tall. Most cheesecakes — like my Bourbon Pumpkin, Cappuccino Fudge, Key Lime and a Brownie Mosaic riff — use 3 bricks of cream cheese; this uses 5.

Cherry Crisp in a Jar from My Baking Addiction I’m starting to get the feeling that, when my surgeon told me my recovery from surgery would be 6-8 weeks, he wasn’t joking! I am doing quite well, all things considered… And, I am gradually feeling better each day, but there is still quite a long road in front of me! So, I am feeling especially blessed by all of my great blogger friends who are stopping by here to help me out with all of these guest posts. I’m sure I don’t need to introduce Jamie from My Baking Addiction… If you are anything like me, you probably visit her site regularly and just stare at her gorgeous photos and stunning desserts!

S'mores Cake in a Jar Oh friends. Hi. How are you? Judging from the above picture, you can assume I’m doing well. Pie Favors in a Jar {Recipes} Just like “on a stick”, everything gets infinitely cuter when layered inside a mason jar and tied with a simple ribbon or tag. Favors are no exception! So make these delicious fruity pies in mini mason jars (or regular size!)

strawberry summer cake It is not summer yet. In fact, it’s been raining for more than a week, and another week — the one in which I presume we’ll be introduced to our new mosquito overlords — is promised. In fact, it was so cold that I met a friend for lunch today and had to wear both a light wool sweater and a jacket. It’s almost like summer looked at New York City and said “pbbbblt!” But I know it’s coming. I know it’s coming because strawberries appeared at the Greenmarkets last week and if you think I dork out pretty badly when the first asparagus stalks appear, you ain’t seen nothing like my “the strawberries are here!” Grilled Passion Fruit Pork Satays with Passion Fruit Tzatziki Ingredients Grilled Passion Fruit Pork Satays 1 3-4 lb boneless pork shoulder, trimmed and cut into 1 inch cubes 2 passion fruits 1 shallot, minced

a mason jar meal (my 6th PFB challenge) UPDATE: You can VOTE FOR ME HERE, if you’re so inclined. I love mason jars. They are perfectly portioned, retro, convenient, and reusable. They are affordable, accessible, versatile and stylish. They contain, shake, serve and store. Treat of High Summer: Blackberry and Red Wine Jam The hottest temperatures of the summer have finally hit Seattle. High 80's without a cloud in the sky greeted us North-westerners over the weekend. It was hot. To many across the nation, this may seem cool, but we here are not used to these highs. two-ingredient maple soufflé I know, I know. You read that post title and thought to yourself, Katy is clearly messing with us this morning. And then you thought, Seriously, Katy?

Hummus Are you ready for Fall? I know I am. In fact, I have been ready for a while now. I will tell you my little secret. Mini Paleo Pizzas My guess is that most of you would call these bun-less burgers. OK, I’ll give you that, but they are nice paleo, protein-packed alternatives to the classic English Muffin Pizza. When I am out and about running errands, I can guarantee at some point my blood sugar is going to bottom out and I will need to get food in me stat, therefore I am trying to create more “small plate” on the go meals, snacks, and even recovery meals. Hey Ellen, these are great recovery meals! My kids do not want to be paleo, they remind us of that at almost every meal.

Food and Whine: Cherry Bread I love a nice fruit bread during the holidays. It’s a sweet bread made with candied cherries, citrus peel and sometimes currents or raisins. My favourite part is the cherries, and I had quite a bit of cherries left over from making Cherry Chocolate Kiss Cookies, so I left out the other stuff and just made cherry bread. I also added about a teaspoon of cinnamon into the sweet dough to give it more flavour. Vegan Salad in a Jar. Make-Ahead Bliss Salad. In a jar. I totally get this one.
