Food Friday

This is my husband's absolute, very favorite dessert...EVAH!!  It's actually his mom's recipe, but I think I do it justice.  There is one currently in the oven as I type this.  :-)  Thought I would share!

3 tbsp sugar
1/3 cup butter
5 eggs, separated
1 cup sugar
2 (8 oz) packages cream cheese
1 cup sour cream
2 tbsp flour
1 tsp vanilla
1.Mix ingredients for crust and press into bottom and sides of a 9" spring-form pan.
2.Beat egg yolks until thick and lemon-colored. Gradually beat in sugar. Break up cream cheese; add to eggmixture beating until smooth. Add sour cream, flour, and vanilla; continue beating until smooth. Beat egg whites in separate container until stiff but not dry. Gently fold into cheese mixture.
3.Heat oven to 275 degrees. Pour filling into prepared pan. Bake for 70 minutes. Turn off oven and leave in for 1 hour without opening the oven door. Remove from oven and cool. Top with your choice of fruit. Remove cheesecake from pan just before serving. Enjoy!

Follow through...

I have trouble with this.  It's not too obvious, is it?  :-)  Ok, I am making an effort here, people!  I get all gung ho about something and throw myself into it head first...only to come sputtering out the other side.  I have no follow through.  I do not know moderation.  How do you learn moderation??

So, here I am back here on my blog.  I am going to try for something other than an "all or nothing" kind of thing here.  Think I can do it?

We will see.  :-)
