Recipes | Pam's Cheesecake

I've never met Pam, but man, I think she's pretty darn great!  :)  If you're willing to devote a few years to perfecting a cheesecake recipe, you are someone I could definitely be friends with.  Here's her heavenly cheesecake recipe...you should go make some right now...

While the strawberries were a great addition, my only regret is that I opted for strawberries instead of whipped cream...rookie mistake.  What was I thinking?!?  Always choose BOTH!

Oh my...

Typically, Thursday nights = Archiver's for me (a very happy place indeed, where I meet with a few great friends and have some time to chat and do some creative things!), but tonight I felt like I hadn't been home a lot this week, and I wanted to spend some time with my 3 great boys.  Usually on Thursdays when I opt to stay home, I do still miss my creative time and am a little sad, despite the great trade-off.  

But this Thursday, I am not sad...not in the least....because staying home meant I could get this in the oven.  I was salivating as I mixed it all up, remembering how amazing this was at Craft Weekend.  Oh my....let me just say that tomorrow night's dessert will be to-die-for, and I'll post pics after eating what may be a million calories, but is totally worth it!

10 on 10

Have been needing some inspiration lately for taking more pictures, and I remembered this project, so I thought this would be a great way to have a mini-view of the day.  Love these 10 pics...a great reminder of why I love taking pictures of everyday life!
