Slice 13 March 13, 2012 What to write about?

My students were asking me today, "What should we write about?"  They were having some trouble coming up with ideas of what to write about.  Guess what? So am I.  I gave them ideas and now I am at a loss.

I have used a quote, written about what I have been doing, talked about memories, and now I'll tell you about a recipe I found that I like.  It is called Cherries Jubilee Cheesecake.  It is easy and wonderful!  How about that for something to write about!  Besides being a Language Arts teacher, I am a Family Consumer Arts Teacher as well.

Here's the recipe:
Cherries Jubilee Cheesecake
1 box Betty Crocker SuperMoist Cherry Chip Cake Mix
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
1 container Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy cherry frosting
3 eggs
Heat oven to 325°F. In large bowl, beat dry cake mix and butter with electric mixer on low speed until crumbly; reserve 1 cup. In bottom of ungreased 13x9-inch pan, press remaining crumbly mixture. In same bowl, beat cream cheese and frosting with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Beat in egg until blended. Pour over crust; sprinkle with reserved crumbly mixture. Bake about 45 minutes (about 42 minutes for dark or nonstick pan) or until set; cool completely. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours until chilled. For bars, cut into 6 rows by 6 rows. Store covered in refrigerator.
Makes 36 bars

It is simple and very delicious. Enjoy! That was easy!  Happy Slicing! (especially the cheesecake) :)


  1. Mmmm. There's goes my diet again! I like the idea of bars!

    1. You'll have to tell me how you like them. I think you could do other flavors too.
