One of the best parts of big family dinners is a dessert like this fresh from the oven Homemade Lemon Cheesecake!
Clean up is an integral part of celebrations. You don’t want your dish cloths to be stinky or stained with company in the kitchen, do you? Cooking and cleaning go hand in hand so be sure to save the recipe and remember my easy tips for keeping your dish cloths stink and stain free!
We love big family dinners at our house. The food always tastes just a little bit better when it’s shared with family, doesn’t it? We don’t do it often so we tend to go all out when we do.
We hosted a big Sunday dinner at our house recently. My hubby made his new recipe for Homemade Lemon Cheesecake. Just like all of his desserts, it quickly vanished.
Any dessert with a graham cracker crust is bound to be delicious!
Pat the crust gently into the bottom of a springform pan with the sides of the pan removed as above. Place the crust pan onto a baking sheet before it goes into the oven.
After allowing the crust to cool, carefully set the baked crust pan into the fitting of the ring. Be sure it’s in place before adding the filling.
Gently spread the filling evenly on top of the crust and it’s ready to bake.
- 1½ cup graham cracker cookie crumbs
- 3 Tbsp sugar
- ¼ cup butter, melted
- 4 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, softened
- 3 large eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Stir together first 3 ingredients;
- Press into bottom of a 10-inch springform pan.
- Bake at 350° for 8 minutes. Cool.
- Beat cream cheese, eggs, and 1 cup sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until fluffy.
- Add lemon juice and vanilla extract. Pour into prepared crust.
- Bake at 350° for 1 hour. Cool on a wire rack.
- Cover cheesecake and chill at least 8 hours.
- Store in refrigerator up to 5 days, if desired.
- Remove sides of springform pan when ready to serve.
- Yield: 1 (10 inch) cheesecake.
If the fact that Stacy’s Homemade Lemon Cheesecake quickly vanished is a sign of how good the recipe is, then it’s a really good recipe. There were no leftovers.
Did I mention it was a big Sunday dinner with lots of family over?
Well, we piled the pots and and pans in the sink and enjoyed conversation after dinner. It was a big mess to be sure but I found these new Scotch-Brite® scrubbing dish cloths while shopping at my Kroger and couldn’t wait to use them.
Do you stop by the cleaning aisle in Kroger just to see what’s new? I love doing that. I grabbed a 2 pack of these Scotch-Brite scrubbing dish cloths in this pretty mint color.
They are on sale right now for $1 off the 1 pack and $1.50 off the 2 pack. They have little scrubbing dots on one side for baked on messes like our pots were sporting that Sunday afternoon. I was excited to tell the girls about them while we were washing up all those pots and pans.
We tend to share kitchen tips during clean up time so I’m sharing with you today How to Keep Your Dish Cloth Stink and Stain Free!
My new Scotch-Brite scrubbing dish cloths don’t scratch my non-stick cookware which I love and they dry quickly.
The one biggest difference you can make with your dish cloth is how you dry it.
Mildew forms quickly on anything wet. After you finish using your dish cloth, rinse it thoroughly to remove all soap suds and any debris stuck to it. Then hang it to dry in a manner which will allow air to circulate through it during drying time.
Laying a wet dish cloth across the sink divider to dry causes mildew because it takes too long to dry.
Prevent mildew and it’s smell by allowing air to circulate through the dish cloth while it’s drying. The new Scotch-Brite Scrubbing dish cloths have a fast drying time and are machine washable.
