That's what you'd expect though, right? Because this is a writer's blog. So why in the world would I post a regular, old mundane recipe like I'm trying somehow to pretend I'm one of those cool moms who's crafty (and not in a villainous way) and cooks for her family on a regular basis (actually, since I'm still the unpublished sort of writer, this happens more frequently than you'd guess) -- instead of the weird mom who has a (at least) thirty second delay in answering any question put to her.
BUT these Berry Cheesecake Popsicles happen to be quite fabulous and I couldn't help but share. Since I absolutely won't share the real things.
So, a while back on facebook, I posted the following, fabulous fake cheesecake recipe:
1 8 oz pkg cream cheese
1 8 oz tub of whipped cream
1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of sugar
Whip cream cheese until smooth. Add whipped cream and whip together. Add sugar and mix until smooth and no longer grainy.
AND you can use fat free cream cheese and sugar free whipped cream and it's that much, uh, healthier.
Well, it's summer time, so I thought to myself, would this work frozen? And what's better with cheesecake than berries? (I admit I had help from my friends Meri and Mellissa with that part.) So, grab yourself some of those cheap popsicles thingy's people use to make homemade popsicles and make yourself some frozen delight.
*Also, there are no pictures. This isn't a cooking blog. I barely take pictures of my own kids, so what did you honestly expect?
Make the fake cheesecake as described above. I used a little less sugar than normal since I was putting in berries.
Blend 1/4 cup raspberries and 1/4 strawberries (or any combination of berries you love to make up 1/2 cup) in a blender until the desired consistency. If you want big chunks, less. If you want it smooth, more. (Duh.) Mix it in with the fake cheesecake. Spoon the mixture into the popsicle molds (oh, yeah, that's what they're called). And freeze. Then, when they're solid (if you can wait that long), devour them. Possibly all in one sitting. No one here will judge you.

I've been writing since I was old enough to grasp a crayon--my grandma even has an early copy of a "book" I made her. I have a bachelor's degree in history from the University of Wyoming and will (hopefully) soon be starting a graduate program in English. When I'm not breaking up impromptu UFC fights in the living room or losing miserably to my boys at Uno, I'm ... well, writing or editing, of course! I'm married to my best friend, and we have three rambunctious but simply amazing little boys.
