at myself. i just ruined a cheesecake. i am so mad i cannot see straight. i could spit nails and all the other little sayings that convey that i am mad as hell.
i really am a good cook,but you wouldnt be able to tell today. i have made cheesecake a million times. i have tried a bunch of different recipes and they all turn out good. i have NEVER ruined a cheesecake. ever. ever ever!
i found this new recipe over at smitten kitchen for a new york style cheesecake. the lack of heavy cream and the addition of flour and the high temp cooking intrigued me. the pictures looked wonderful, so i wanted to give it a try. i am making dinner for friends and they love my cheesecake, so....it was a PERFECT opportunity to try the new and intriguing recipe.
lets just say a freakin oven malfunction destroyed my cheesecake!!!!550 degree oven for 12 min. i dont think i have even had my oven up that high. it singed the crust, but i could salvage that. when i turned the oven down to 200 for the remainder of the baking time-it didnt take or i pushed a wrong button and i walked away thinking it was at a lovely 200 degrees when it was still at 550! i HATE electric ovens. i hate waste like that. sigh. i need to take a few deep cleansing breaths. maybe do some meditation or something.
