I did manage to take all the photos as I made my first attempt at Bubbie Lou's Cheesecake recipe:
|Graham cracker crust mixture|
|Cake base ready|
|Batter poured - into the oven!|
|Topping ready...just waiting for cake to bake and middle to thicken!|
|Mmmmm does that ever smell good...but can't shake that sad feeling that my cake hasn't thickened...|
But patience is not one of my virtues.....I removed the mold too soon, and it fell apart. (I could not bear the humiliation of photographing that jiggly mess!)
I think that the recipe was too large for my cheesecake pan, and the middle didn't cook all the way through.
My sweet family still ate it (the edges turned out ok! LOL!) and thanked me for my efforts...a special thank you goes out to my angels:
- Becca for taste-testing it even though she was hesitant..."Mommy, I don't think it is supposed to be so juicy or warm"..."It's tasty, sorta like a cheesecake pudding"
- Sara for finding the edges to be delicious and telling me I am the best mom in the world for trying to make her a cheesecake

Until then...I wish you a wonderful day filled with fun, friends and fantastic food! B'Tayavon and Buon Appetito!
PS - for the Record, although my kids do not believe me, I have made delicious, firm & fully cooked cheesecakes before, just not using my Bubbie's recipe!
