If I feel up to it, tomorrow I’ll bake my first ever cheesecake.
When my husband and I went shopping last weekend we got all the ingredients that I’d need to make at least two pumpkin cheese cakes. Of course … I spent Sunday and Monday busily baking cookies and then I had doctors appointments the rest of the week so there’s been no more baking since then.
Since this is the first cheesecake that I’m attempting to make I thought I’d make one for my husband and I to try and if that works out, I’ll make a second one closer to Christmas to take to my in-laws for Christmas day.
Hey we can freeze half of the first one if we want to – otherwise between the cookies and the cheesecake I’m pretty sure I’ll be looking for diet pills for women in the new year! You should see the top of my friend where I have bags and bags of all the cookies I’ve made stored. I’m expecting a cookie avalanche any day now.
The reason why I said I might bake the cheesecake tomorrow if I feel up to it is because I started taking more of my migraine medication on Thursday. Remember that anticonvulsant – Topamax that I started taking at the end of August that made me feel so weird for several weeks? Well I’m taking an extra pill each day now and I’m back to having some more weird side effects and I’m extra tired. It’s the tiredness that might keep me from baking tomorrow … but if I don’t bake the cheesecake tomorrow I’ll get around to it on Monday or Tuesday I’m sure.
Have you ever baked a cheesecake? Did it go well? Any tips for me?
