  1. Tried this today and was very disappointed with the results. I was hoping for a true cake-like quality in terms of texture, but this was more like a cottage cheese texture. I'm sure I followed the directions properly.
  2. This is how I like my cheesecake. It is not a smooth amazing cheesecake, it's a simple easy to make and still very enjoyable to eat cheesecake. The texture is a little bit dryer and crumblier than some of the really smooth ones. But just a little. I didn't try the toppings. I love my can full of cherry pie filling.


After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
