No Bake Cheesecake

We have returned from our back to back hockey tournaments and are getting into the swing of things again. We sure had great time meeting new families and watching some great hockey. Both boys came home with trophys which was nice. A third place trophy and a first place trophy. Now that summer hockey is over, there won’t be any out of town tournaments for a bit. Which is kind of a bummer because I love exploring the areas that we visit. Restaurants and grocery stores are my favourite because I get a lot of my inspiration for recipes from trying out new dishes and checking out different products at the store. 

This particular recipe for no bake cheesecake is not a new found recipe though. It is a favourite of mine from when I was little. My mom used to make this quite often, and I loved it so much. I haven’t had this cake in years. I thought about it often though…lol. I got this recipe from my mom and decided to make it for my family. Although in her recipe there’s a jelly strawberry topping on top. But I messed that up the first time and then ran out of strawberries so I tried it with raspberry coulis and it was amazing too. (Recipe below)

Here are a couple of shots from our time in Minneapolis….

 

Summer Tournament

Caught a Minnesota Twins game. It was the first time the boys and I had been to a baseball game. I wan’t too keen on going but it was actually nice. It really helped that I had the most delicious burger EVER!!! at the ball game.

We couldn’t go to Minneapolis without visiting Valley Fair. We haven’t been there in a few years so for the younger boys this was all new. They had a blast, but I sure can’t do rides anymore the way I used to. Enough said…haha.

So here’s the recipe to Baba’s Cheesecake.

Apple Rhubarb Loaf

Apple Rhubarb Loaf is the perfect accompaniment to a hot cup of tea (or coffee, but my favourite is tea). It is slightly sweet and earthy to give it that comfort food flavour.

So yesterday Amanda’s Daily Dish hit 100 likes on Facebook…yay! I am so excited that so many of you have liked my page enough to follow along with me on Facebook. I’ve got so many recipes and ideas that I want to share. Even my little guys are starting to get into it and are making suggestions as to what I should include on the blog. Such helpful little guys they are.

Jeff (my husband) was also a help when he came home from work the other day with a big bag of rhubarb. A client of his had given it to him and I was so excited because when we lived in our first home we had a big rhubarb patch and I would bake tons of goodies with rhubarb. I never replanted one once we moved and I’ve really missed it since then. 

I also had a big bag of apples on hand so that’s how this recipe was created. Apples and rhubarb sounded like it would be a nice match so away we went. The result was a delicious loaf full of fruit (is rhubarb even a fruit? I think maybe it would be a plant? I never thought of that before).

I’m enjoying a piece with my cup of tea while I finish this post up. It is so yummy. Here’s the recipe…

I used sour cream in this recipe for the moisture. It gave the loaf a nice flavour and texture.

Look at those chubby little fingers. Chandon (my 3 year old little guy) really wanted to help.
