Happy Valentine's Day!

Our valentine to you, our dear readers: Cheesecake!

Well, you have to buy the ingredients and make it for yourself, but we are giving you our most favorite recipe for it.

The basic recipe is from a well loved cookbook of ours "Just a Matter of Thyme".

We've added a few things to make it extra tasty.

Turtle Cheesecake


3 (8 oz) pkgs. of cream cheese, softened
1 can sweetened condensed milk
3 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
20 chocolate sandwich cookies (we use Oreos)

Blend cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, eggs and vanilla until smooth.
Set aside.

To make crust, crush cookies in a food processor or blender until fine.

 Press into the bottom of a 8 in. springform pan. 

Pour cheesecake batter over the crust. 

Bake in a 300 degree oven for 1 hour or until set.

( we couldn't help it!) 

Cool completely.


Mini chocolate chips (a debated amount. you can use your discretion) 
carmel sauce (recipe here)
chopped pecans

Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top of the cheesecake, then pour the warm carmel over it.
Finish with the pecans.

Chill at least one hour before serving.



  1. I don't know whether I'd want to eat that cake or run away from it!
    Anyway, it looks delicious! Mmmmmmmm. I love cheesecake.

  2. Mlm. Looks good :b a crack is never just a crack - hilarious :D

  3. If the Doctor comes to save you from the crack cam you ask him to come by and take me on an adventure as well?

    Now I am hungry, very hungry. I should see if I can attempt this one, it looks SOOO good!
