About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

The Secret of the Old Clock, Cheesecake and Paper Dolls

The Secret of the Old Clock.
Carson Drew's Cheesecake.

                               It was a good first meeting of my sleuths.:)

                                I was not intimidated by the spring form pan.
                     Well, maybe just a bit.

            Carson Drew's Cheesecake (from Nancy Drew Cookbook)

             2  8 oz. packages of cream cheese
             2/3 cup of sugar
             3 eggs
             1/4 tsp. almond extract

              Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Gradually add sugar to cream cheese and mix thoroughly.  
              Break eggs into the cream cheese mixture one at a time.  Stir each time you add an egg.  
              Pour in almond extract and mix well.  Put mixture into springform pan.  Bake 50 
              minutes.  Serves 4-6.

              Crumb Crust

               2 cups graham cracker crumbs
               1/2 cup sugar
                1/2 cup melted butter

               Mix crumbs and sugar in a bowl.  Add melted butter and mix well.  Press
               onto sides and bottom of an 8 inch springform pan.  Chill in refrigerator
               before adding filling.

Hi Lori, the paper dolls look beautiful. I have the urge to make one myself! The cheese cake sounds yummy. There's always something fun going on at your house.
