No Bake Raspberry Lemon Cheesecake


I love cheesecake. I hate the process of making cheesecake. So of course I was going to jump at the opportunity to make a lazy cheesecake.

The recipe itself is fairly straightforward. Make the graham cracker crust. Make the filling, put it on top, put in the fridge.

I didn’t have enough raspberries to decorate the top and make it pretty. (I would have needed at least another package) And to be honest, I’ve never been a garnish person. So I was not about to spend 6 dollars on sprigs of mint for people to take it off and eat it.

So, what you see is what you get. It was pretty good. Because it’s mostly cool whip and cream cheese, it doesn’t quite have the full cheesecake texture, but it’s still decent. Not bad to make in  a pinch!

Strawberry Shortcake Sushi with Strawberry Coulis


So, firstly, didn’t know that a jelly roll pan is basically a cake pan? I was very confused, started using a meat loaf pan, but glad I googled.

Everything else is pretty straightforward, until the assembling part.

The shortcake was a tad thick, which made the rolling part a little difficult. And messy. Also, all of the filling (which was delicious btw), started coming out of the side.

The coulis was pretty easy. I don’t own a blender, so I just electric mixed them together and strained it. And it was pretty tasty.

Overall, this tasted pretty good, but I think I would just make the shortcake and skip all the fancy assembly.
