“I checked out this great cookbook from the library, The Juan-Carlos Cruz Calorie Countdown Cookbook. I saw this recipe, and marked it to save, before I return the book. I haven't made it as of this posting, but I love cheesecake, and if I can find a way (or recipe) to make it so it is just as good with less fat, then I'll give it a shot!”
