What do you like to do for fun? My three favorite things are drawing, writing ,and best of all cooking. I LOVE cooking and baking! I make anything from omelets to brownies. This is one of my favorite recipes:

New York-Style Cheesecake

From Nerdy Nummies


1 1/2 cups cookie crumbs

1/4 cup sugar

5 tablespoons salted butter, melted


4 packages ( 8 ounces each) cream cheese, at room temperature

1/4 cup sugar

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoon cornstarch

1 cup sour cream

Preheat oven to 350 F

Make the crust: In a large bowl, whisk together the cookie crumbs and sugar. Stir in the melted butter until the crumbs are evenly moistened. Press the crumb mixture onto the bottom and 2 inches up the sides of a 9-inch springform platform pan. Bake for 10 min to set the crust. Remove from oven to cool, but leave the oven on.

Make the filling: In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat together the cream cheese and sugar until smooth and light.

Beat in eggs, vanilla, and cornstarch until just combined (do not over-mix)

Mix in the sour cream until well blended.

Pour the mixture into the prepared crust ans spread evenly.

Bake at 350 F for 45 min. Turn the oven off, prop the door open slightly, and let the cake sit for 1 hour.

Remove the oven and place on a wire rack to cool to room temperature.

Cover and refrigerate until well chilled before serving.
