Food cravings come and go but my craving for blueberry hasn't stopped! (Not pregnant!)
Last week, I thought of making a No-bake Blueberry Cheesecake. Actually, I prefer the baked kind. However, the No-Bake one holds a special place in my heart. The first time I ever had one was in high school when D (a very dear friend) made one for our get-together. It was love at first bite! (Back then, the only dessert for me would be anything that has chocolate in it, haha!) I think this was how my romance with blueberries started. =)
So I googled, saw a lot of recipes, compared and finally. . . picked Mom-Friday's take on this no-bake cheesecake recipe.
What do I like about it? I like that it was her Mom's recipe. There's something special about recipes which you learn from your parents. . . . and she used cinnamon for the crust, haha! I'm glad I did! We love it! The recipe had the taste I was looking for. While making and eating this cheesecake, a wave of nostalgia swept over me. It brought me back to high school and to my childhood friends, our Christmas get-togethers with endless stories and laughter.
It is amazing how food fills our appetite and our hearts at the same time. =)
Happy Weekend and Happy Baking . . . I mean, Happy No-Baking! =)
