I have amassed huge quantities of recipes over the many years I have been cooking, baking and trying new things. I have a large selection of cookbooks, as well as cooking magazines, specialty magazines, small grocery check-out line booklets, and literally hundreds of loose sheets printed from sites online. I love to experiment and try new recipes. It's rare for me to make a recipe just as it says, even the first time through. Sometimes I find a recipe to be just too unwieldy, as it is written, so I pare down the instructions to more easily follow the directions. At other times I just like a certain ingredient more than something called for and make a substitution. I am an experienced cook, so I have a good idea where and when this can be done with impunity. If you are new to cooking, please first try a recipe the way it is written, until you have a better feel for what could happen otherwise.

Chestnut Cheesecake
Chestnut Cheesecake

Possibly one of the recipes I have most changed from its original is Chestnut Cheesecake. I found the recipe online many years ago, but finding the ingredients to make it as stated was nearly impossible, unless I wanted to spend huge amounts to order some of the ingredients, there are too many other things to spend on; I didn't want this to be so prohibitive. The recipe as it will appear in the Cakes & Coffeecakes section will reflect my experiences with it. It is a spectacular cheesecake, especially around the holidays, when chestnuts are found everywhere.
