100 Followers and Blueberry Cheesecake!

I was so happy when I saw I had 100 followers!!! Yay! Such an accomplishment. Thanks everyone for following, it truly means alot :)
Last night, my friend and I hit Victoria's Secret, thankfully they haven't given me an Angels card. I walked out spend $26.50 for 9 (yes, 9!) pairs of panties! That's less than $3/pair (for all you non-math whiz's)! I love their sales. Here are the bags in my closet that have accumulated over the last week or 2 :/

I then made the promised Blueberry Cheesecake for Mr. P. I got the recipe from here. I changed a few things "to taste" and I used Splenda vs. sugar. Here are my instructions:


Gather ingredients.






I used a granola crust I had been trying to figure out how to use and thought would be a healthy substitute.
Combine cream cheese with eggs and sugar (*Splenda).


Beat mixture well until consistency is smooth.


I added vanilla, even though it wasn't listed as an ingredient. Had I thought about it, I probably would have added a splash of lemon juice too.
Once mixture is well blended, pour into pie crust.
Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes (I baked mine for 45 minutes, turning temperature down to 325 for the last 10-15 minutes). Half-way through cooking I also added a shallow pan with water to the bottom shelf in the oven. I learned this in my pastry class, it helps the cheesecake cook through. Chill in refrigerator.
Top with blueberry pie filling and whipped topping as desired.
It was yummy! I also baked some slice and bake cookies as a surprise and reason to use the new stove :)


This was my kitchen helper who I tripped over all night :)
