Cheesecake is in the house! Oh darn, you don’t know where I live.

It’s so exciting when it is finally time to unfurl a cheesecake.

I think I am going to photograph every cheesecake I make for the rest of my life.  It just feels like the heavens have opened up and all the angels are singing when I release that springform pan.

I swear this is the best cheesecake recipe in the world.  Go here to get it:  http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/perfect_cheesecake/

I know I talked about this at the first of the year.  But I made another one yesterday, and I am still enamored.  Takes a while to make, but damn!  It is seriously delicious!  I didn’t change a thing, but left off the cream cheese topping.  And I did make up my own fruity topping.

I couldn’t stand it last night, had to cut into it.  It could have used more time in the fridge, but that’s certainly not a deal-breaker.  Mmm mmm good.

Today my plan is to eat more cheesecake.  And pine over my Destiny.  And maybe organize my sewing room.

We should all start our day with a good laugh.

Homemade pretzels – yeah, I said pretzels.

Bread.  Salt.  Mmmmmmm.

Did you know you can buy pretzel mix?  Well, you can.  The ingredients are all in there, but you still get to mix, rise, divide, roll, twist, boil, salt and bake.  And it’s fun.

I dare you.

Ed. note:  no sewing machines were harmed in the making of these pretzels.
