Quickest Easiest Desserts in the World…

January 6th, 2018 · 2 Comments

Summertime and my go to dessert is watermelon, it feeds a crowd and brings joy to any gathering. Sometimes though, you need a little more… It really is the season for tons of drop in friends and visitors popping over for dinner… and the truth is we want to spend our evenings on the beach. So in order to keep everyone happy all of the time I have been making these very quick and easy recipes over the summer, that I got from a friend I bumped into.

Step 5: Bake your cheesecake in the microwave for five minutes.
Step 6: Once your cheesecake has cooled down place it in the fridge overnight.
Step 7: You can make this just hours before, but overnight is supposed to be better. Never happened here though!!!

    Sorry this is off topic, but I couldn’t get the contact form to work for me.

    Hello! I have been reading and reading your blog, especially the Sonlight posts. I do think this quote might be my favorite homeschooling wisdom ever: “The time has come the walrus said, for homeschoolers to stop fretting about every move they makeā€¦ and just start doing the school they believe in.” And so, I do want to jump into Sonlight for my daughters, but I’m unclear as to whether you use their full packages? Do you recommend their Language Arts, for example? They seem to get mixed reviews. I did read that you enjoy Winston Grammar. Lovely stories you’re sharing, and I’m really learning a lot! Many thanks, Tracie

    Hay Tracie, Great question… We are Sonlighter’s all the way and do their full package each year with each kid. That being said the language arts we only physically do until about half way through highschool, after which my kids have enough knowledge and romp their school leavers certificates and concentrate a lot more on their passions and getting work experience. Otherwise… the Language arts is not trivial and there is a lot to learn, we don’t LEARN it per-se, we get exposure to it. I never expect rote learning, I concentrate on covering the work and exposing them to the new ideas, that the curriculum builds upon and repeats year after year. Not all school has to be fun, and I’ll be honest language arts is not my kids’ favorite, so I go the extra mile and over and above their language arts I make sure that their writing and story creating is fun. I hope that helps a little bit… feel free to ask more homeschooling questions… I love answering them!!!
