I have always wanted to bake a homemade lemon cheesecake. I found several suggestions from "The Cheesecake Bible" like Lemon Curd Swirl Cheesecake, Meyer Lemon Cheesecake, Lemon Meringue Cheesecake, Lemon Mist Cheesecake and more. I decided that my very first homemade cheesecake would be the Lemon Mist Cheesecake because my husband's birthday is coming up and he loves lemon desserts.
I made my shopping list for the ingredients. I almost gave up on using lemon cookies because most of the stores I visited did not carry them until I stumbled upon them at the local Dollar Tree. I bought two packages just to be on the safe side because I was not sure how many would equal 1 1/2 cups of lemon cookie crumbs. There are suggestions located in the "Common Ingredients" section of the cookbook for graham, vanilla wafers, chocolate sandwich cookies and Ritz-style crackers. The great thing about this recipe and many others is that you can alternate the cookie crusts if you cannot find a particular cookie at your favorite market. I could have chosen graham crackers and added lemon zest to it. This was a fun recipe to create from beginning to end.
My first recipe from "The Cheesecake Bible" was a unanimous success. My family and I enjoyed the Lemon Mist Cheesecake with its creamy lemon flavor!...more

I plan on including Nature Girl: A Guide to Caring for God's Creation as as part of our supplemental home-school science curriculum. My youngest daughter loves cooking, crafts and the outdoors. What a wonderful way to teach her about conservation, environmental issues and most importantly becoming better stewards for God's creation! I think they should create a Nature Boy, too. ...more
