My daughter determined to use ingredients at hand in the refrigerator. So, she made a crust of shortbread cookies and animal crackers with a sprinkling of coconut. She spied the frozen bag of mixed berries and envisioned a colorful and flavorful topping. The other ingredients (eggs, flour, cream cheese, sour cream, milk, vanilla, sugar) succumbed to my daughter's culinary giftedness and merged to become a firm and fresh cheesecake.
Dear daughter created a masterpiece from what was once a motley group of solitary items. She knew that, with her vision and plan, a great cheesecake would emerge.

I look forward to living free and unfettered as I become more of the woman God had in mind when I was conceived.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29.11The door is open - stop in to see what will be in 2011...
