STRAWBERRY CHEESECAKE

Desserts are one of my weaknesses. You won’t be able to resist this cheesecake, with its fresh sliced strawberries and light and fluffy texture!
Adding the sour cream, sugar and vanilla to the top of the cheesecake created a light and creamy topping with a slight tartness that complemented the fresh berries very well.

It was DIVINE!!

I was so happy with the results that I’ve decided that any time a make a cheesecake with berries I will be using sour cream on top!

This recipe is “officially” for a strawberry cheesecake but you could definitely use any combination of fresh berries that you like.

This time I just opted for slices of strawberries place on top, but I think next time I may add some fresh raspberries as well.

This strawberry cheesecake would make a perfect dessert served to guests or just as a nice treat for
yourself and your family!

I hope you enjoy this recipe!

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 tbsp butter, unsalted
  • 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 3 (8 oz) packs of cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsps vanilla
  • 4 large eggs whites, room temperature
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 1 pint of strawberries or berries combination of choice (note: you can use as many or as few as you like)

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350°F.
  2. Grease a 8″ spring form cake pan with butter. The pan sides should be at least 2 1/2″ to 3″ high.
  3. Sprinkle the graham cracker crumbs over the bottom and sides of the pan. Make sure the sides and bottom are covered. The majority of the crumbs will be on the bottom.
  4. Onces sides and bottom are coated with crumbs, use a spoon or spatula to spread the crumbs around the bottom of the pan so the amount is roughly even throughout.
  5. Cream together 1 cup of the sugar with the cream cheese and 1 tsp of the vanilla. Use an electric mixer to combine this well.
  6. In a separate bowl and using clean beaters, beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Use an electric mixer for this.
  7. Once eggs have formed stiff peaks, gently fold them into the cream cheese. Do this in 3 parts – not all at once.
  8. Pour the cream cheese batter into the cake pan and spread it around with a spatula to make sure it's even.
  9. Bake for 35 minutes.
  10. Combine sour cream with remaining sugar and vanilla (1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 tsp vanilla).
  11. Once the cake has baked for 35 minutes, evenly spread the sour cream mixture over the hot cheesecake.
  12. Bake in the oven for an additional 10 minutes.
  13. Once it has finished baking allow to cool on a wire rack (still in the pan) until it reaches room temperature.
  14. Chill covered in the fridge overnight (still in the pan).
  15. The next day, remove the cake from the pan and top with fresh slices of strawberries or other fresh berries.

You know about the auto insurance companies that boast about their low premiums on national television, radio and social media. They really want you to internalize their messages. The truth of the matter, though, is that there may be a misconception about what they mean. "Replace your current coverage with ours," they proclaim, "and you'll find savings on your auto insurance!" Or "Allow us ten minutes and we will present you with a cheaper rate than others." The real facts indicate that most vehicle drivers will not get any savings with a policy switch to a direct insurance company. This is because no dependent company has the wherewithal to offer any other coverage than their own. The shimmer of a cheap quote can actually be the mask covering an increased insurance deductible and less liability coverage. In order to underscore this important lesson, we bring you this actual narrative involving someone who decided to go with an independent agency's ability to locate tailored car insurance for him. A motorist who had previously been insured through one of these highly advertised dependent companies that promote 'cheaper rates' decided to go with an independent agency known for their impeccable customer service. Following a review of this man's 'cheap' auto policy, the insurance specialist discovered some serious gaps in coverage. Understanding this could cause serious problems if the insured should ever be involved in a car accident, she went to work, looking through the many policies offered through her company's network of providers. She pinpointed an excellent plan that covered the gaps and had an attached competitive low rate. The customer was satisfied with the find and left with a fresh peace of mind due to his newly acquired policy. As fate would have it, it was not long afterwards that this insured was involved in a car crash that left his vehicle in a totaled condition. Because the other driver was at fault in this collision, it was assumed that the other driver's insurance company would pay for the damages. But there was one major snag to this. The other insurance company offered to pay an amount that was far below the totaled car's worth. It was then that the new policyholder whose car had been totaled decided to call his new company. The insurance company gave him no hassle, no problems. Instead, they mailed him a check made out to the amount that genuinely represented the worth of his car, three thousand dollars above what the at fault driver's insurance company offered! Guaranteed: the happy ending to this true-to-life story would have been very different if that 'cheap premium' policy with gaps in coverage would have been in place.

Do you have the right car insurance? Well, many people think that it is a must to have the right car insurance. It will be better if you get the best one with cheap auto insurance. While most people know whether they have liability, collision or comprehensive coverage, some people pay much attention to their insurance coverage until after they have been in an accident, the others just do not really care about it. Shopping for car insurance is an important planning topic that is often overlooked since most teenagers are added to mom and dad's insurance policy when they first get behind the wheel and then later shop for the least expensive policy when they have to the pay the bill on their own. In this article, we will be discussing car insurance coverage and so you will get some tips to help you get the most for your money. Cheap auto insurance has two primary benefits. The first one is protecting your assets and the second one is protecting your health. Getting the proper coverage is the first step in the process. These are the basic types of coverage with which most people are familiar: 1. Liability: This coverage pays for third-party personal injury and death-related claims, as well as any damage to another person's property that occurs as a result of your automobile accident. 2. Collision: This coverage pays to repair your car after an accident. It is required if you have a loan against your vehicle because the car isn't really yours - it belongs to the bank, which wants to avoid getting stuck with a wrecked car. 3. Comprehensive: This coverage pays for damage incurred as a result of theft, vandalism, fire, water, etc. If you paid cash for your car or paid off your car loan, you may not need collision or comprehensive coverage. In addition to the coverage listed above, other optional coverage types include the following: a. Full Tort/Limited Tort: Your insurance will be reduced by a few dollars if you give up the right to sue when you get an accident. However, giving up your rights is rarely a smart financial move. b. Medical Payments/Personal Injury Protection: Personal injury protection pays the cost of medical bills for the policyholder and passengers. If you have good health insurance coverage, this may not be necessary. c. Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage: This type provides for medical and property damage coverage if you are involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist. d. Towing: Towing coverage pays for a tow if your vehicle cannot be driven after an accident. If you are a member of an automobile service, or if your vehicle comes with roadside assistance provided by the manufacturer, this coverage is unnecessary. e. Glass Breakage: Some companies do not cover broken glass under their collision or comprehensive policies. In general, this coverage is not worth the long-term cost. f. Rental: This insurance option covers the cost of a rental car, but rental cars are so inexpensive that it may not be worth paying for this coverage.
