Pinterest is all about pictures, so every once in a while you see a picture of something you want to make and you hope that it turns out "exactly" like the picture. You have lots of experience and trust your instincts. While you're trusting your instincts you're also wondering if you've really got it right, or if somehow you've been duped. You take the plunge and the end result is almost the twin of it's Pinned picture. Yeah it worked. It turned out the way it "advertised" itself to turn out. The reality is it almost always does, as long as you know a little something about cooking and baking. And if you don't, that's OK too. Stick with me and I'll do my best to help you choose recipes that give you the result you're looking for.
It must be good when your daughter asks you to make it for her 10th birthday party. It's far from a traditional birthday cake but hey, if it makes her smile, that's all that matters. There are lots of recipes for no bake cheesecake and I've tried a few but none compare to Jean Paré's version from her Company's Coming Desserts cookbook. To my surprise I searched but couldn't find the recipe on Pinterest. Well it's there now and I encourage you to try it. So easy and so good.
All things cooking, from simple and clean to gourmet and exotic (and everything in between) have been my passion for over 30 years. Since discovering Pinterest, I pretty much exclusively cook from the recipes I PIN. My saying is, "if you can PIN it, you can cook it". I love to PIN recipes and I love to cook. I thought, why not blog the recipes I make from my Pinterest food boards. I'm the self-declared, Pincook.
