I have a love/hate relationship with Pinterest.
I figured today was a good day to make good on something I have spent hours searching, organizing and pinning.
To actually try one of my pins.
It was a dreary day outside, and I really saw no need to leave the comfort of my new robe.
I got this robe at Kohl's.
With Kohl's cash.
So the universe practically gave me this robe.
It is soft as premature butterfly wings.
When I wear this robe, it feels like a hug from an angel.
It is also a sex deterrent, I have learned.
Another bonus in my book.
It has pockets.
I find that robes need pockets, since bras are prohibited, and that is usually where I carry my cellphone.
So anyway...back to Pinterest.
I found this Crème Brûlée Cheesecake Bar recipe.
I almost had all of the ingredients for it at home.
I improvised on the recipe with what I had on hand, and guess what Internets?!
My version kicked butt.
I haven't made the original to compare, you can find it HERE.
But I will share mine with you.
The recipe calls for a package of sugar cookie mix. For some reason, I have had this box of Jiffy Sugar Cookie Mix in my pantry forever. It is a small box.
I used that, and added some graham cracker crumbs. The crumbs were so stinking good. I loved the texture it added.
The recipe has you use three egg yolks.
I thought the lonely little discarded whites should get used too.
I probably could have saved the whites for some nutritious/low cal egg burrito that I could eat and pretend that I like, but I opted instead to make a meringue top for the cheesecake.Totally delicious.
Here is the recipe.
Remember, you can click on it to see it better, or you can right click it, save it, and print it out as a 4x6 photo.
Either way, you are probably going to want to change into your own robe before you make this.
Belts are not going to be your friend.
