Chronicles of the Calamitous Kitchen: Cheesecake. That is all.

I've been slacking a bit on cooking the last week and a half, so Tuesday I decided it was time to make a return to the kitchen. One word: Cheesecake.

Oreo cookie cheesecake, to be precise.

Here's the monster, complete with choco-topping (ganache). Fatness, do you need it? Good news! YOU CAN HAS!

I learned something new this time in the kitchen. This is a spring form pan, which connected to a thin metal sheet (what the cake is sitting on). Good thing I didn't try to make this thing in a normal pan or I would of ended up with a giant cheesecake muffin thing.

Even though I've been called insane, I'm sticking to my opinion that the choco-topping was too thick. My family will likely disown me when they read this post. The Andersons take chocolate very, very seriously. What can I say? I've always had a fondness for other sweets besides the chocolate. They're lucky there's any chocolate in this cheesecake at all!

Guppy Cooking Tip #22: Sometimes is does matter what pan you use. A wise person checks into these things - or has co-workers versed in such things and have spring form pans at the ready.

Oooh, that looks delicious! I bought my first spring form pan a few years back for a raspberry white chocolate cheesecake, and oooooh, it was so worth it!

Heh, I'm hooked after one use. I'm gonna have to buy one of my own for sure. :)
