I'm going gaming tonight, and when I get home the cheesecake I made will be ready to eat :D, I'm remembering how much I like cooking, I've been making all sorts of things in the kitchen lately. :D

I'm happy to share, but I only just got home to try it, lemony cheesy goodness. :p

Who wants some?

I'd love some. Only thing better (IMHO) is Lemon Meringue.

Here is a little friend who can help you with separating the eggs (http://www.stupid.com/fun/EGSP.html)

I have to get one as there are recipes I want to use, but I don't because I have to separate the eggs.

I'm glad I'm not giving up cheesecake for Lent.

I've always liked separating eggs.

Maybe I'm just weird.

I also make a killer lemon meringue pie. I had to learn after I fell in love with them and kept demanding them for every holiday. Mom loves lemon too, but she was annoyed, having to make them all the time. They're quite energy-consuming, standing in front of the stove, waiting for the curd to thicken properly.

Cheesecake! yum! but I feels so clogged if I eat as much as I'd like.

Another thing I make is Buttermilk pie - the flavor is between/near cheescake & lemon custard:

----BUTTERMILK PIE----
4 EGG YOLKS
1 WHOLE EGG
3 tablespoons BUTTER
1 1/2 cup SUGAR
7 tablespoons FLOUR
1 tablespoon LEMON EXTRACT
1/8 teaspoon SALT
3 cups BUTTERMILK

Pre-heat oven to 425.
Put all ingredients, except buttermilk, in 2 quart mixing bowl. Mix well on low speed. Add buttermilk slowly so filling remains smooth.
Pour filling into ready made (frozen or refrigerated) 9" pastry shell. Place in pre-heated oven. Turn temperature down to 325, let bake for 45 to 60 minutes. Center will set up almost firm like a pumpkin or custard pie when it is done. Serve cool, plain or with whipping cream or meringue.
Options: Graham cracker or Vanilla wafer crust. Substitute Orange extract. 1/2 cup dried apricots cut into 1/4 cherry size chunks.
Fills 1 1/2 to 2 pastry shells

The sad thing is I see all these recipes and I can't do anything with them. At the risk of sounding too proud, I'm good at making entrees and appetizers. When it comes to desserts, well, not so much. My cakes are dry, pies collapse, my cookies burn and taste like salt. I tried making meringues once. They came out like those candy dots you eat off of wax paper.

But candy dots from wax paper are good! :D

I would agree. But not when they taste like burnt meringue :D
