I'm behind in my posting.  Possibly because the past two weeks I've pretty much put myself into a sugar-induced coma. Besides the chocolate chip cookies, v-day chocolates, and ice cream sundaes, there has been:

a vanilla-lemon valentine's cake. We HAD to make it, as the silicone heart-shaped cake pan was a gift from Elle. 
and then a pumpkin cheesecake, which was very scrumptious when eaten this way:

I have yet to make a cheesecake that did not crack terribly.  What is the secret? Also, how can a cheesecake be "light" when it calls for 5 eggs? I'm just wondering. 

Craig declared this week the start of a new diet for all, because he's trying to counteract my attempts to kill everyone with fat and sugar. 

hmph.  Just wanted to have a little fun before I die. (name that movie!)

Did you bake the cheesecake in a water bath? It always works for me.

I can't think of the movie... what was it? Was it that one with John Travolta and Kirsti Alley when she had the baby? "Look Who's Talking" or "Look Who's Talking, Too"?

NO! no no no!

Armageddon. The movie was Armageddon. Steve Buschemi is sitting on a nuclear warhead....

Yes, really. It was and with me. We can communicate on this theme.
