Every time I watch "home cooking with paula deen" I am amazed at how much fat she cooks with and just how crazy she gets with the butter and cheese and chocolate... Don't get me wrong, I'm sure it all tastes good (with the exception of the velveeta fudge...yup she puts processed cheese in her fudge), but good for you it isn't.
I was just watching her make pumpkin cheesecake. After putting a stick of butter in the crust plus 24 ounces of cream cheese, 3 eggs (plus a yoke), and a quarter of a cup of sour cream into the filling, she says "and then you add a cup and a half of sugar...this just sounds almost like diet cake doesn't it...with only a cup and a half of sugar".
I literally laughed out loud.
Now...off to make some pumpkin cheesecake cause that recipe sounds darn good (plus...it's diet).
PS- happy birthday jordan!
