Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: The CheeseCake Episodes: White Chocolate CheeseCake 2
Here’s the Ingredients List of what was used to make my latest version of the white chocolate cheese cake for a special someone:
6 packages of cream cheese
4 eggs, 2 cups heavy cream, I cup Whole Milk
Pictured above in the glass on the left is the heavy cream. The glass on the right is the whole milk.
1 whole bag of white chocolate truffles melted down
1 1/2 squeezed lemons, probably 1/2 cup of sugar, and our secret spice & liquid concoction.
After all the eggs were incorporated I added the sugar and lemon juice and other spices and liquids before pouring the batter into the cake pan.
For the crust I used two Keebler’s graham cracker crusts to fill the 12 x 3 bake pan. You could make your own graham cracker crust from scratch but for the sake of taste and time store bought graham cracker crust from Keebler’s just puts it over the top in my opinion. After baking at 250 degrees for 3 hours the cake was left to cool in the freezer before the white chocolate eggs were added on top.
The above cheesecake is a 12 x 3 inch cake. This cheesecake is made as a traditional dense cheesecake. If you like a light and fluffy cheesecake, addinig cottage cheese or lots of ricotta cheese and less cream cheese should do the job. I admit the taste didn’t come out quite as good as an earlier version but I realized that it was because I’d forgotten to add a secret ingredient. Even though the taste was off a little it still was quite good.
Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: The Cheese Cake Episodes: Episode 2
In my last Cheese Cake episode I introduced you all to my first ever Torched Cherry Strawberry Cheesecake. This time around I unveil my latest creation. Ladies and Gents my Custom White Chocolate Cheesecake Redux. I decided to go a bit more outside the box in the concept of this cake and the result is what you see below. Reese’s peanut butter cups, crumbled cookies and white chocolate morsels all seated atop cream cheese frosting. And as I usually like to do when making a cheesecake I used a graham cracker crumb crust base for the cake. In a word folks…YESSUM!!!
I apologize for the image quality as I’m forced to rely on my cell’s camera until I get the main one replaced.
Behold my latest creation. It’s…fill in the blank
Decadence!! Plain & Simple
The prep time for this cake was approximately an hour. This doesn’t include bake time. Organizing all the ingredients and tools required is essential if you want to dramatically speed up prep time. Even so incorporating the ingredients and being careful not to over mix the batter makes it worth the time and effort for the cake to come out well I find.
The size of the cake you see above is a 10 inch x 2 inch cake not including the peanut butter cups decoration. Unlike the last time I baked a cheese cake I set the oven this time around to 250 degrees and baked the cake for and hour and 15 minutes the entire way through.
To also help prevent cracking I placed a 10 inch iron skillet filled with water below the cake as it baked away. I allowed the cake to sit in the oven for approximately an hour to cool before transferring it to the the freezer for overnight cooling. Once frozen solid by morning it was then ready to be decorated.
I have to say the first bite into this cake had me wanting to eat about half the cake right then. I…didn’t do it. Instead, I allowed myself to slowly savor the harmony from the different sweet and salty textures and crumbles in the frosting. It all began to play with my taste buds before realizing the goodness of the cake below.
Initially, it was awesome but after a while a bit too much of an acidic bite was coming through. 😦 I knew then that I’d probably used a tad too much lemon juice. A good note for next time. Overall though, I am still satisfied with the end product. Stay tuned for more Cheese Cake Episodes updates.

Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: Heat VS Celtics 2013
I want to start off saying I’m not a Celtics fan despite the pic below, I’m actually a long time Bulls fan who currently is also a fan of the OKC Thunder. I just so happened to have this hat this St. Patrick’s Day weekend and the Celtics play the Heatles at home with a 22 game win streak and bragging rights on the line tonight.
Feeling still in the St. Patty’s Day spirit I’d have some cookies with a little green in em’ I pulled these bad boys out from their hiding place. Tastes so gooood!!! Pistachio and White Chocolate!! Hawhaaat?!!!
I’m watching the first quarter of the much hyped and anticipated game of the week featuring Lebron, DWade, Bosh and Co. against a depleted Celtics team led by Pierce, Avery Bradley, Jeff Green, and Brandon Bass as the core starting players tonight.
First quarter so far looks like Heat are experiencing the Celtics push being depleted and hating Ray Allen for joining the Heat. Allen needs to hit his shots and stop thinking about the fan booing him when he touches the ball. So far his shots look rushed and unconfident. Jeff Green has been balling something amazing. Second quarter the Heat are trying to play a bit better but the Jeff Green show is in full effect as he’s the leading scorer and the Celtics offense is running through him. Let’s see how this one turns out. I’ll be back later with my post game take.
