How many times do I hear myself say, "where is that big orange binder?" or "has anyone seen that big orange binder?" The big orange binder has been accumulating recipes, kinspiration & original recipe cards tucked into plastic sleeves for my entire-almost-forty year existence. "The Big Orange Binder" is an organization attempt. It's a recipe with a story neatly packaged in a place where I'll always be able to find the ever-elusive . . . Big Orange Binder.

Basic Cheesecake


crust of your choosing, or no crust . . . . 

teeny bit of lemon rind
2 tsp vanilla extract
½ pint heavy cream 
3 large eggs
2 tbsp cornstarch 
¾ cup granulated sugar
2 lb cream cheese @ room temp

Mix all ingredients until smooth; pour into crust or tartlets and bake until slightly brown @ edges; be careful not to overcook!   One large cheesecake bakes for apporx 1 hour, so adjust times down according to size.
