Pumpkin Cheesecake






My Hubby's favorite dessert is Cheesecake. I never thought it would be possible to make it at home, but when I saw this recipe for Pumpkin Cheesecake....it seemed like the dish was calling his name!  I had been wanting to make something special for him (since he is the one who bakes for me quite often!) and knew this would be the right dessert!

In my Hubby's words: "The cheesecake was similar to pumpkin pie, slightly richer. It was the perfect blend between the traditional pumpkin pie and cheesecake.

I ended up making two pies from the ingredients listed below. One pie was made in a store-bought crust and the other one was a homemade crust. I strongly recommend making your own crust because the cinnamon flavor from the Graham Crackers and brown sugar will add an additional pumpkini, fall-ish flavor to the cheesecake.



This recipe is courtesy of Paula Deen found at the Food Network. 

Ingredients: 


  •  cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 (15-ounce) can pureed pumpkin
  • 3 eggs plus 1 egg yolk
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
*I also added a bit of ginger - I had seen that ingredient listed in other recipes I looked at online. 

Steps: 

1. Beat cream cheese until is smooth. 

2. Add sugar 
sugar and cream cheese -- what a delightful combination! 


3. Add remaining ingredients, except the Puree Pumpkin. 



4. The most awaited moment: add the puree pumpkin and pour into crust.

5. Bake it for 1 hr. 
If you make your own crust, bake the mixture with the raw crust as well. It will cook simultaneously. 


6. Remove from the oven and let it sit for 15 minutes. Refrigerate for four hrs or overnight. 





What type of pumpkin desserts have you made this season?

How to Make a Crochet Fabric Fusion Dress

This post contains affiliate links.



The life of a crafter tends to revolve around trying new patterns, combining materials, making something completely new. Sometimes it turns out just like we imagined it would, other times...well,  those times are good too. The process of crafting  is what makes it fun and worth the ride. One book that has really inspired me into this fusion technique has been Fun with Yarn and Fabric: More Than 50 Projects to Sew, Crochet, it is filled with projects that combine fabric with yarn into beautiful projects like cushion covers, blankets, etc.It is also so colorful that it will really motivate you into trying new color schemes.

Some time ago, I got this turquoise chevron fabric from Hobby Lobby with the intention of making a dress that would combine crochet and fabric. Just like a fusion blanket, I would make a fusion dress: fabric and crochet together to make a new dress.

Crochet is so fun and relaxing. Crocheting is even more fun when we get to use our skill and make crochet gifts for everyone we know. Or perhaps when we can even use our crochet as a business and sell our handmade items at craft shows.

The ultimate goal of crochet is to SHARE what we are able to make with our hands. 

This crochet towel holder takes about 20 minutes or less to make depending on your speed. 

What I love about this crochet pattern is that it creates a very useful item using cotton yarn. We use these holder in our kitchen and reminds everyone where to keep the kitchen towel so it doesn't get lost.
