Octopus' Garden

Monday, August 01, 2005


In honor of the fact that yesterday (July 30) was National Cheesecake Day (I shit you not), I present to you the White Chocolate Berry Cheesecake, and say to you, Behold the Power of Cheese(cake)!

(And apropos of nothing in particular, I also present to you a picture of a Tiramisu that I made back in November and never got around to posting because I was going through my Annual November Depression. Now that it's officially an annual thing, I'm thinking about having t-shirts printed up this year.)

The dinner party was fun. Nothing got set on fire and nobody got food poisoning (that I'm aware of).

There's probably Something Not Quite Right about the fact that I (1) took pictures of desserts that I made, and then (2) just posted them onto the internet, but oh well . . . so it goes.

I don't understand white chocolate. Otherwise, why wasn't I invited? (Believe it or not, I actually clean up pretty nicely.)

Shelley, is it the whiteness of the chocolate that you find oxymoronic and/or baffling, or are your reservations of a different ilk altogether? And you should know that you're always invited! :)

The thing is that, as I understand this whole mess, there is no actual *chocolate* in white "chocolate." So why do we call it chocolate? And why would we want to eat something that says it's chocolate but clearly isn't? I wouldn't care if it was white, purple or robin's egg blue if it actually was made of chocolate and, you know, tasted good.

I've had "white chocolate" flavored desserts before, and they tasted fine and sweet, but nothing like chocolate. So I'm sure your cheesecake was powerfully delicious, but please don't pretend like it was chocolate. Except for the chocolate wafers in there. Yum.
