Tell Me Something Tuesday # 6

Ok, today is tuesday. That means around around of Cambria Hebert' s weekly meme Tell Me Something Tuesday. She invents a question and we scribble out our answers. Or at least, I do; I hate my handwriting. I'm soooo glad this is on a computer. Anyway...
This week question is: What is your favorite thing to eat? What about to make? (Include a recipe if you can!)

Favorite thing to eat? That is a dangerous question, my friend! :) I shall do my best to answer.

Off the top of my head I would have to say, I don't know. Too many good things too eat.

I do know that my favorite drink is a tied between...

     Hot Chocolate                                                   and...                                                     Milk.
Fat free or 2%, anything
else just tastes funny.
Hot chocolate wins days are cool, but milk wins every other time.  I can't get enough of either. In fact, I'm probably the reason that my family keeps running out of milk. :P
Oh! Or I would take chocolate 
  milk. It's the best of worlds! :)

And my favorite candy is Recess's peices. And my favorite Ice cream is Mint Chocolate Chip.

But my favorite thing to eat...hmmm...I would have to say...
Surprised? So am I. But I can't think of anything that I like more. I mean it's sweet and mouthwatering; plus, it's healthy!!

Now, my favorite thing to make. Easy.
Strawberry Marbled Cheesecake
The first time I made it was for my brother's 18th birthday. Since then I've made it several times over, and it's always very fun to make.

1/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
3 tablespoons sugar


24 ounces cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 eggs
10 ounces frozen strawberries (thawed), in syrup
1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch

Puree strawberries and cornstarch in blender. Heat in a saucepan over medium heat until thickened, then cool. Combine melted butter, graham cracker crumbs and sugar; press onto bottom of 9-inch springform pan.Bake at 350°F. for 10 minutes. Combine cream cheese, sugar and vanilla, mixing at medium speed on electric mixer until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Pour half of the batter over the crust then add half of the strawberry mixture by spoonfuls to the batter. Pour remaining batter into the pan then add the remaining strawberry mixture by spoonfuls. Swirl the mixture with a knife until it resembles a marbled effect. Bake at 300°F. for 50-60 minutes or until set. Allow cheesecake to cool then remove from rim of pan. Chill overnight before serving.
Serving Size: 12

So, that's my answer. What's yours?
