Cheese- cake!! Mmmmmm!!!!

This is probably something you make alot more than me.. but here it goes….

015Let’s make some cheece cake.. the Norwegian way! :-)

I use Digestive for the bottom of the cake 


Crush them in the blender




melt some butter ( I never measure) in the microwave..


mix into the crushed digestive crackers 


“pour” into the cake form….


press with fingers.. to make it even all around 


off to the challenging part.. since we don’t have the same kind of groceries… The green is sour cream, THE GELÈ is Jello.. the orange in the back is cream.. and then the little one in front is mandarin and pineapple creamy cheese. 


I cook the jello first… it says 5 parts of water.. I narrow that down to 2 parts…..


Whip sour cream and cheese and a couple of tablespoons of sugar together… and then cream and a couple of tablespoons of sugar in the other… 


pour one over the other and mix gently together… 


When the jello has cooled off, mix this into the creamy mix…. mmmmm starting to smell really good! 


When all the jello has been mixed into the cream… pour it onto the bottom of the cake….


At this point I am cooking another jello in my pan… it still says 5 parts water into it.. I now use 3!!


And while the jello cool on the counter this time… I put the cake in the refridegerator to get stiff… 


When it’s stiff… I take it out.. drew some hearts… (not so smart actually.. as lumps of the cake surfaced the jello) 


Then poured over the cold and starting-to-get-stiff-jello… and put it back into the refridgerator!! :-) a few minutes later… MMmmmm dessert!!

MY kitchen……..

I thought I’d let you see part of my kitchen… as you might notice.. I like things a bit oldfashioned….

This is a nice(?) mix of old and new.

And I just love the black iron pieces… (I couldn’t figure out what that is called in english)


In the picture below… I tried to design my own style… I wanted it to look like an oldfashioned fireplace….

We had to hire an old handyman to build this part for us… and I think he did a good job.. at least I got it like I wanted it..


I like my kitchen… and I am very satisfied with this part of it… ONLY wish it was a little bigger.. BUT we have plans… one day we WILL make it bigger…. :-) Really looking forward to that.. in the meantime.. I am happy here…
