Retro Post: Adventure #3: Lemon Cheesecake

These next few posts will teach me my lesson, since I am trying to go back almost three weeks and remember exactly what I did and why.  Hopefully once I catch up with myself I will be more successful at staying in the present…

The Lemon Cheesecake adventure was another co-venture with Alimonkee, which will also explain some of the modifications made to the recipe.  It was also, I have to say, one of our most successful kitchen adventures to date (even including pre-blog cooking experiences!).  This cheesecake was deadly amazing, and a huge hit with our diners, and also so impossibly rich that it was nearly explosive to try eating more than one piece.  But I’m getting ahead of myself.


Retro Post: Adventure #1: Cardamom Rose Ice Cream

I think it’s appropriate that my first foray into a cooking blog is also my first foray into ice cream makers and electric mixers.

When we closed on our first house several months ago, I immediately ordered myself the KitchenAid Professional 600 Mixer, unable to resist the allure of Empire Red and 575 watts of Mixing Power.  This weekend was our first full weekend in the house, and we decided we were together enough to host a small Mothers’ Day dinner.  Naturally, I planned the dinner deliberately to incorporate as much mixer usage as seemed reasonable.
