Cheesecake Anyone?

I've been working on making a family cookbook. I'm titling it Such as It Is. My grandma always used to say, "Dinner's ready, such as it is." I don't really know why. I guess she was being humble. She shouldn't have been, she was a wonderful cook. Of course, the tradition followed and my mom said 'such as it is', too. Now guess who says it? Yep, me. And I still don't know why. It's our thing. So while trying to come up with a title, this seemed appropriate.

I'm trying to take some pictures so it won't be a boring cookbook.

Cheesecake anyone?

Oh my goodness, but that looks ever so luscious!!! And I do hafta say, the title of the cookbook is right on perfect!!! What a reference and memory. Are you gonna publish this for your family then?

Oh, yes please! A slice of your cheesecake, such as it is, would go down a treat. I love the idea of the family cookbook- they are a passion of mine, I have some pretty old ones which I treasure. Such a shame I don't enjoy cooking. ;)

the cheesecake looks yummy. Well done you for making a cookbook - to pass on to your family? Interesting isn't it how we pick up sayings from our mothers.
Have a wonderful week and thank you for stopping by my blog this week.

Luscious looking - I can almost taste it! I like that you're using a phrase handed down by your grandmother.
