Cheesecake Layer Cake 

This is a cake with a middle layer of cheesecake. I made this recipe about a year ago, it turned out great. One of the times the recipe looked like the picture, even after I made it myself.

Today I found more ideas for the cheesecake cake idea. One for St. Patrick’s Day and the other a Christmas theme. I’m sure both would be great. The recipe is pretty simple and would be easy to adjust for birthdays, other events and holidays.

I’m planning to adapt this recipe and make a turtle cake (with chocolate, caramel and pecans) for my sister this month.

New Mousepad


I’m not a big online shopper. I can easily count the purchases I’ve made on one hand. If you don’t count a couple of ebooks, there are exactly two things I have bought online. Tonight I decided to get this mousepad. I like it cause it is about St. Patrick’s Day, coffee and I do need a new mousepad.

I’ve been putting off getting a new one for a couple of years. The one I have now was from my ex-husband. It’s a yellow smiley face. But, it’s been shedding the backing for a few years until it’s kind of bald around the edges (on the back). Sometimes my hand gets a bit numb from resting on it when I’m using the mouse awhile. So, it’s time for it to be retired.

I really need to put up a corkboard or something like that. I get bits of things I’m working on cluttered all over and lose track of things as they get buried. So, it is a sensible idea. I can also put old smiley up on it, give him a featured corner. You can’t keep a good smiley down.
