  1. How long is "until done"?


  1. Need I say more than Dragonflyjoy... made this 3 times now, the last time I added a few splashes of lime juice with some lime zest (small lime), great with or with out. You've just gotta try this one!!!
  2. This is an absolutely fantastic recipe! Had I been able to eat the whole thing myself I would have. I did share and got raves! I love creamy cheesecake, but also love the more intense flavor of a heavier cheesecake. This is the perfect combination. And the balance that the white chocolate gives the ginger is perfect. I garnished the top with fresh raspberries and mint from my garden. Don't be intimidated by this recipe, it is well worth the effort. Thank you Mean Chef for the best cheesecake that I have ever made!


<p>I live with my husband, four cats, and a sweet mutt named Jada in Scarborough, Ontario, where I work as an elementary school administrative assistant. I have a 31 year old daughter who lives with her boyfriend in nearby Don Mills, along with my sweet granddogs, Frankie and Turbo. I would have to say that my passion is animals, since I have so many of them! <br /><img src=http://images.quizilla.com/H/h0t5auce/1108834307_brown_answer.jpg alt= /> <br /><img src=http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/532663/cookswithcattitude.JPG alt= /> <br /><img src=http://i146.photobucket.com/albums/r271/copperhorse58/CalendarGirlsSwap2009.jpg alt= /> <br /><br />If I had a month off work to do what I please, I would first catch up on my sleep and then just have fun - see a few movies and maybe take a couple of short trips - something that wouldn't break the bank - lol!</p>
