Just want to share the result of one of my latest, baby lemon cheesecakes.

I have to say that I don’t like cheesecake at all. I know I know. They are usually too rich for me and too sweet. People loves cheesecake factory. I don’t. So why did I ended up making this cheesecake?

It’s because when I got my copy of RHC last September - leafing through the book and DROOLING over the pictures - one of the pictures that cause the drooling reaction is the baby lemon cheesecake. Not that I particularly like cheesecake, on the contrary, but because that picture is so nicely done. The little cheesecake round, on top of a biscuit, the smooth and shiny curd in a perfect swirl shape around the top. And the baby blue plate with its white adornment around it. It all just looked so enticing?

Coupled with the fact that I love love love Rose’s lemon curd recipe. I’m sold to try my very first cheesecake.

The result: It is soooo goood.. It’s smooth and creamy, and not sweet at all. And I love the tanginess of the lemon curd. I’m a convert now, a cheesecake lover - only when it’s Rose’s recipe. Well okay, maybe that’s jumping to conclusions. I’d have to try more cheesecakes - what a tough life this is smile.

Just perfect, Jenn!  So glad to hear that this recipe made a cheesecake lover out of you.  I think I remember reading in TCB that the apricot swirl cheesecake had a similar effect on Rose’s friend, David Shamah. Must get around to trying both of these soon!

Beautiful!  Just beautiful!

Hey, Knittybaker! I was a big knitter, too.  I knit all of the hubs and self’s sweaters (including two Bohus sweaters), hats, gloves, scarves and socks, and I did some crocheting, too.  Stopped a few years ago, though.

I tried crocheting an afghan once and the result was awful - a co worker told me that knitting is easier and she was right. I’ve been knitting for about 7 years. I’ve made all the ones you’ve mentioned except gloves - haven’t tried this yet smile. I just started making sweaters a couple of years ago. It is time consuming and more challenging but I love it.

Why did you stop, if you don’t mind me asking?

Gloves are fun—and you can do them really fast, especially on 1 or 2 circs (rather than DPNs—unless you’re good at DPNs, which I’m not).  I did them wrist up, so I could try on each finger as I did it (and the hub tried his on as they went, also).  7 years is a long time—you should definately do gloves—they fit so beautifully and feel so good when you make them to fit each finger just perfectly!!!!  I used fingering weight alpaca, and they are so soft and warm! I double-stranded, alternating each stitch but using the same color, a pair of wool/angoras for the hub, and they are really soft and warm.

Oddly enough, and apologies in advance for the serious note, but the hub had a heart attach in Nov. 2007, and I finished the afghan I was working on and just stopped.  For me, it had to do with the time I spent looking down at my work instead of at him, but those things strike everyone so differently.  So many others are calmed and strengthened by knitting/crocheting through times like this, but for me, it was the opposite. I completely lost interest and haven’t touched the needles since!

I’ve added a pic of one sweater.  It’s my first two-color sweater, but it’s the only pic I have here today (just happens to be on my work compuer).  I started the yoke about 6 times before I could get past it!!!  This is a mohair blend, and it’s about the heaviest weight I used, as I like fingering weight best—or at least DK.

(Pardon the OT, everyone…)

Ienn,

I love Rose’s Baby Lemon Cheesecakes, also. They are fun to make and the the presentation delights guests when they are served their individual cheesecakes. Rose’s recipe is the best!
Your photo is very well done.
