Last week, I had a friend come to visit from Newfoundland, and while we planned to dine out a few times over the week, I always like to whip up a few treats to have around, and in this case, tote along to a cottage, where we spent the next few days soaking up the sun and more than a few glasses of Tidal Bay wine (Jost winery being just down the road) before heading on to other ventures. The cottage, btw, was Crows Joy, and it was a beautiful place to stay. The Malagash area is one of my favorite places, home to gorgeous scenery and lovely beaches (including Blue Sea Beach Park), where you have room to breathe. We also visited the Tatamagouche Brewing Company (great red ale) and had a great lobster roll at Big Al’s. Mostly we BBQ’d, took lunches to the beach and such.
This mini-cheesecake was perfect size for a couple of days at a cottage and fit just right into one of those round ziploc containers, so it was portable for the cooler we packed to take with us. If you wanted to make the full sized version, just double the ingredients, use a 9-10 inch pan and adjust your cooking times to about 60 minutes. Read the rest of this entry
