If you follow me on twitter then you know that I was pretty excited about baking a cherry cheesecake as requested by Mountain Man for his birthday. I brought it over last night though we didn’t get around to eating it. Perhaps he enjoyed some for breakfast this morning? Ha..
I had never baked a cheesecake before so I practiced during the week, and it is undoubtedly worth the points once in a while. Each slice was valued at 11 PointsPlus which is a bit extreme so using ounces I measured half of a piece for 5 PointsPlus, and that left me feeling satisfied.
The first one I made cracked, but it was delicious! I baked the second one in water so it didn’t crack (awesome) though I can only hope it tastes as good as the first one.
My cheesecakes were flawed, but I feel proud of myself for trying something new. And once again, I have to thank Kelly for the recipe! 🙂 I shared the first one with friends and received a marriage proposal upon sight. It must be good, right? ha
I hope everyone is enjoying their Friday! I weighed at noon, and I lost 3.6 pounds last week. Yay! Tonight I’m headed to the hockey game with a guy who better be full of cheesecake when I see him. 😉
What are your weekend plans?! Also, to those of you participating in the Twelve Days swap, the deadline for shipping was today! Have you done it yet? Don’t forget to communicate with your partners!
Enjoy the weekend friends!
