M Is For Munchies #Recipe

Recipe adapted from Zoom Yummy, posted with permission.

I love my mom.
We all do, well, at least most of us. There is always exceptions to every rule.
I have spoke of my mom before, so today I will talk about something completely different.
Munchies.
Yup, you read right.
Lately my munchies have gotten more sophisticated. I made sweet potato muffins one night and yesterday I made strawberry swirl mini cheesecakes. I decided to share the recipe and photos with you all for the cheesecakes.
Strawberry Swirl Mini Cheesecakes
INGREDIENTS:
(For crust)
  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 4 tbsp melted butter
  • 2 tbsp sugar
(For Filling)
  • 2 packages of plain Philidephia cream cheese
  • 1 cup sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 small eggs, room temperature
(For Swirl)
  • Package of Strawberries
  • 2 tbsp sugar
METHOD:
Preheat oven to 325c.
In a small bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs with the butter and sugar. Make sure all the crumbs are moistened.
Line a cupcake pan with liners.
Press 1 heaping tablespoon of crumb mixture into the bottom using the bottom of a shot glass. Bake for 5 minutes. Cool.
In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese until it's fluffy. Add the sugar and mix until smooth. Mix in the salt and vanilla. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Be sure to mix well between each egg. Spoon 3tbsps of cheesecake mixture over the cooled crusts. They should be almost to the top but not quite.
Pureé your strawberries and sugar. Spoon into a piping bag. Dot the pureé over the cheesecake. Add about 4 dots per cake, each about the size of a dime. Take a toothpick and gently swirl the surface. This is where you create the effect so be creative if you want.
Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cool for one hour. Then chill for at least 4 hours.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
