As my Canadian friends say "soory, eh!" That would be 32oz of ricotta

Crème fraîche can easily be made at home by combining 8oz sour cream with 6oz of whipped unsweetened heavy cream.

Yeh, that's it, that's the ticket. I just don't know how to get those little marks, and obviously, don't know how to spell the stuff.

Thanks for the corrections.

EH, mahalos guys, thanks yeah, as we say in Hawaii

Just one thing though, DH does not like lemon, or sour cream or anything sour...

I was just watching Martha Stewart's Cooking School on PBS and she made a New York Style Cheesecake that looked pretty good, has anyone tried that recipe before?

And yeah, my other thought is to try an Italian Cheesecake. Again on PBS I was watching Mary Ann Esposito make homemade Ricotta cheese, which is suppose to be superior tasting to store bought...

Make the best cheesecake you can make, and let the chips fall where they may, or choose a dessert you know he likes. On the other hand, you can pack him up some of his favorite cookies, while the rest of you enjoy the cheesecake!

I don't bake, but we order this every year, and although it's pricey, it's bar none, the finest you'll ever eat!!

True, true K!
I've been shot down many a time over the years, my hardest fall was trying to make "Jarred Red Peppers" like DH grandmother made... no one knows the recipe and I never got to meet his Nonna...

Did you look at the recipe for turtle cheesecake I posted? There's no lemon or sour cream in it, and the sugar, chocolate ganache and caramel should make it pretty sweet. It's also a beautiful presentation for a holiday dessert.

+1!
All these recipes sound so good, but if DH doesn't like cheesecake, he doesn't like cheesecake. Make him what he likes. Save yourself some trouble and expense and make the cheesecake for your friends that you know will love and appreciate it.

Everyone, GG? Au contraire, mon ami. There is just "something" that I don't like about Red Velvet cake flavor. Plus, to me, white chocoate is "meh". Give me the rich, fudgy taste of chocolate chocolate. Dang, now I've given myself a taste-worm.

ISO : The Least 'Tangy' Tasting Cheesecake Recipe Okay, so I know we talked about Cheesecake before, and each of us has their own favorite recipe. I want to make a Cheesecake for Christmas to take to our friend's home. I've never made one before, so this is a first for me, but I'm confidante. But here's my hitch : My husband doesn't like sour tasting things, nor creamy. He's had some Cheesecakes that he's like, but I can't remember from where! All I can recall was it was pretty firm. Now this is all very odd, because he doesn't like cream cheese and he doesn't like sour cream or lemons, but he likes Cheesecake and he likes Lemon Meringue Pie, go figure! I stopped trying to pidgin hole him a long time ago :smile: So, I'm reaching out to DC's community for advise. Is it maybe the brand of cream cheese or sour cream, or maybe a recipe that doesn't have the lemon juice with the sour cream and cream cheese? ARGH!! HELP! 3 stars 1 reviews
