I have ALWAYS loved making desserts. As a teen, I learned how to make New York Cheesecake from a gigantic American cookbook we had sitting on our bookshelf at home.
Now, mind you, this book is 100% from the 80ies, which means the recipes and photos are 100% pure 80ies charm as well. Think parsley on al the things. And not the flat-leaf kind, either.
Well, whatever the image situation might have been in the book, it certainly didn’t keep me from making all the cheesecake, all of the time.
Far bigger problems in my cheesecake-making adventures were a) it’s a little funny when a 15 year old buys 2 pounds of cream cheese, a pound of butter and what felt like seven gallons of cream, b) …there’s one or two calories in all that butter, sugar, cream cheese and cream… and c) the fact that baking during summer isn’t the most pleasant thing, so I was cheesecake-challenged for at least 5 months every year.
I had MAJOR cheesecake aversions while I was pregnant (thinking of it made me feel SO sick, ugh!), but slowly my love for it is coming back.
But because of a), b) and c) – I decided there had to be another way.
One that’s a little healthier, since I have a 2 1/2 year old dessert monster hanging out around here. One that doesn’t make a gigantic cake for just our little family, and one that’s absolutely oven-free because SUMMER IS COMING.
Hear that, Jon Snow? Summer IS coming.
So I created these Lemon Blueberry No Bake Greek Yogurt Cheesecakes, in an effort to make cheesecake happen again.
My favorite part with these cheesecakes though? Packing them into individual jars.
Because it makes them look incredibly cute.
It makes them PERFECT for Easter brunch, Mother’s Day, summer picnics or any other situation where cute, portable mini desserts are appreciated.
So, any ordinary day in my opinion ?
