- Crab Quesadillas and Guacamole
- Cheese and Pepper Pasta (Cacio e Pepe) inspired by Iowa Girl Eats and original recipe here
- PW's Red Pepper Risotto
- PW's Drip Beef Sandwiches (these were SOOOO good!)
- Gnocchi and homemade pesto (this was our "easy" meal for the week)
And now for my cheesecake! Two years ago (from today!) I starred this recipe from Pioneer Woman in my google reader. I even asked my mother in law to buy me a spring form pan for my birthday so I could make it. And here we are two years later and I have made my first cheesecake in that pan!
This recipe was a bit more work than I had bargained for, and while it didn't turn out "pretty," it was certainly yummy! My cheesecake was full of cracks and caved in a little in the middle, but who cares. It was tasty!
*I did see on The Neely's today that it helps if you place the spring form pan in a roasting pan full of water. This way the cheesecake is cooked more evenly and there are no cracks...interesting idea. I might try it on my next attempt at a cheesecake.
