Vintage Crochet Lines

About Me

My photo
I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

The Guardian Angel

Take your needle my child and
work at your pattern it will come out a
rose by and by. Life is like
stitch at a time taken patiently.

Vintage isn't just for Crochet Patterns

Hello Ma Darlin's
I do have a "fancy" for Vintage...which is the new buzzword for Old Fashioned...I like both of those words, they both describe something which brings me joy. I like this" OlFasiontage" of many things, and I found a new joy for these types of recipes, and so when I find them I like to give them a try. This is a favorite round my little homestead, easy peasy
I'm fairly certain that I posted this recipe, and this is precisely why I'm trying to organize my place, because who knows where I put it, I could have slipped it in here or there, so today because I have one of the beauties in my hearth as we speak, I'll share it once more, and then put it in the proper place under " Recipe Box", how's about that? we go....
I did not create this recipe, but just found it browsing round the web....

Cheese Freeze 1940's Cheescake
Time 45 minutes
350 ( 180)
Ingredients ( Crust )
20 Graham Crackers or 1 1/2cups, 375 ml cracker crumbs.
4 Tbs (60 ml) Butter
1/4 cup ( 60 ml) sugar
Melt buter, add to sugar and ground up very fine cracker crumbs, press into pan.
The recipe calls for a 8" pan, but I use a springform and double up.
Combine :\
1 lb ( 450 g) cream cheese
2 eggs
1/3 cup ( 80 ml) sugar
1 tsp ( 5 ml) vanilla
1/8 tsp ( 1/2 ml) salt
And mix these all together
Pour into the crust and bake 35 minutes at 350  ( 180 )
Remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes.
Mix the ingredients for the topping, pour over the cooled pie and
 bake an addition 10 minutes
I have found that 20 grahams make more than 1 1/2 cups, use more butter/suger to
accomdate for the springform pan.
Topping 1 pint ( 500 ml) sour cream
1/3 cup ( 80 ml) sugar
1 tsp ( 5 ml) vanilla 
I just took mine out of the oven, and it is cooling.  Tomarrow is the test final for my
husband and his truck adventure...:)  Whether he passes this test or not, we celebrate
so I made the cheescake because it's what I had on hand, and his favorite
Lasagna is on order from a local restaurant as a "treat". Fresh bread was made yesterday which will
turned into garlic bread, and artichoke in garlic/olive oil appetizer and salad....
Hey, I making myself hungry.
And now....the dishes - Oh bother....:)
