OK folks, if you've given up on ever having a flat stomach or slim hips,
have I got some recipes for you!
Cheesecake is a delicious, custard-like, full of cheese and calories concoction that will simply melt in your mouth. The Best Cheesecake is usually poured into a lovely graham cracker crust and baked until smooth and creamy. You can top it with whipped cream or fruit, but even served plain, it is way up there in the “Best Desserts Ever” category.
Sometimes, folks mistake this dish as originating in Italy because it can be made with Ricotta cheese also, but we can actually blame ancient Greece for starting this popular (yet sure to make any diet fail) food, since it is first mentioned in history relating to the Olympian athletes being fed such delicacies centuries ago. The Romans were quick to then spread (a little pun there) the recipe throughout Europe, and thus, immigrants coming to America from the motherland, brought with them this wonderful knowledge and treat.
By 1872, cream cheese was discovered in America, and was pasteurized by 1912. This simplification in the preparation of cheese really started a boom in cheesecake. It is now a national, as well as worldwide favorite.
Creating a luscious cheesecake used to be an arduous task, and as I read some recipes today, I find it still is. But if you are looking for a quick ‘n easy way to make the best Cheesecake, I have a great recipe:
How to make the best cheesecake by,
Happy Cooking from Tamara Hillman.
Did you say you're on a diet?
No desserts for 20 years?
Do you pass the cake and candy sections
With some heartfelt sighs and tears?
Go ahead !! Bake those gooey
Sticky sweet forbidden things.
But first put on your jogging outfit.
Your tennis shoes and exercise fling.
Run in place while stirring;
Time your cakes with jumping jacks.
Ten deep knee bends between ingredients.
Use that kitchen for a workout track.
And when you're out of breath and panting.
Pot holders around your prize.
Jog to the nearest 90 pound neighbor
And leave her your 1000 calorie surprise!
