Cream Cheese Pie

A simple cheesecake filling is baked in a graham crust, resulting in a delicious cream cheese pie.






We LOVE cheesecake! I saw this Mexican pie and since it looked similar to cheesecakeI decided to make this pie.


As I started making this pie, I realized that I did not have evaporated  milk,  only sweetened condensed milk. So I decided to continue with the recipe, without the added liquid, since the filling looked like a great consistency. I poured it into my graham crust and baked it with my fingers crossed. I must say that it turned out wonderfully even without the evaporated milk. The cream cheese filling is slightly sweet and deliciously creamy. I decided to make a blueberry sauce to serve along with the pie, to add a little something special. The combination is fantastic and the presentation is stunning.

1 8oz package cream cheese, softened

1 14 oz (300ml) can sweetened condensed milk

3 eggs

1 1/2 tsp vanilla


Crust

2 C graham cracker crumbs

1/4 C sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

1/3 C butter, melted


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


In a mixing bowl, combine the graham crumbs, cinnamon and sugar. Mix in the melted butter, until crumbs resemble wet sand. Press into an 8 inch pie plate; set aside.


In a separate mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese until light and fluffy. Beat in the condensed milk, eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth; about 3 minutes. Pour into graham crust.


Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until center is set. Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature. Refrigerate at least 2 hrs, before serving. Top with blueberry sauce, if desired. (recipe to follow)


Blueberry Sauce

2 C fresh or frozen blueberries

1/4 C water

1 C sugar

1 tsp butter

2 tsp flour


In a small sauce pot, bring the blueberries, water and sugar to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes, until reduced by half.


In a small bowl, combine the flour and butter to make a paste.


Remove berries from heat and whisk in the butter mixture. Return to heat and simmer, whisking constantly, until thickened.


Let mixture cool to room temperature and serve on top of cream cheese pie.

I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest (via Six Sister's Stuff) and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work! 
I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.



When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??





This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.

Wondering how to spend Halloween this year, due to the pandemic? Well I have 8 fun and delicious ways to make an at home Halloween, tons of fun!



2020 has been turned upside down. My kids have not seen friends, or the inside of a school since March. While we do have our social bubble, this bubble consists of family and a few select friends. Being someone who could be vulnerable during these crazy times, I have been trying to make every day life as normal as possible. With Halloween fast approaching, I have been thinking of how to make sure my children have a super fun day, but not put our bubble at risk. It would be much easier if my health was 100%, but we will make the best of our Halloween at home.
