FLAKY CRANBERRY CHEESECAKE
For the pastry:
1 cup water
1/2 cup + 2 teaspoons butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
5 - 6 eggs
For the cranberry compote:
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 cup brown sugar
juice of 1 orange
1/2 cup red wine
2 cups fresh cranberries
For the filling:
3 egg yolks
1/2 heaping cup sugar
a pinch of salt
2/3 cup milk
3 sheets gelatin or 2-1/2 teaspoons powdered gelatin
1-3/4 cups dry or well-drained Quark or Ricotta
3-1/4 cups stiffly whipped cream
confectioner's sugar for dusting
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Use the first set of ingredients to prepare a Basic
Recipe as described on . Pipe out five 10-inch bases on baking sheets lightly
dusted with flour, and bake until crisp and light brown. Choose the three nicest
bases for filing, and cut or break the two remaining bases into small pieces for
the flakes. (basic recipe)
To make the cranberry compote, bring the honey, sugar, orange juice, and wine to
a boil. Cook for 5 minutes. Add the cranberries and simmer for 5 minutes. Allow
To make the filling, prepare a cream mixture as shown in the picture sequence on
the opposite page [see below]. Stir about half of the whipped cream into the
cheese mixture. Spread half of the cheese-cream mixture onto the first base and
top with half the cranberry compote, arranged in little mounds. Cover with the
second base, press down firmly, and top with the remaining cheese mixture and
cranberry compote, reserving a little of each for decoration. Finally, place the
third base on top and press down firmly. Spread some of the remaining whipped
cream on top and cover generously with the choux pastry flakes. Dust the top
with confectioner's sugar, pipe on rosettes with the remaining whipped cream,
and decorate with cranberry compote.
Preparing the cheese filling:
Beat the egg yolks, sugar, lemon rind, and salt with the milk. Heat slowly over
medium heat, stirring. The custard should be heated to just below boiling point,
until it is thick enough to coat the back of the spoon.
Soften the gelatin in cold water, squeeze out well, and
dissolve in the hot custard, or follow package directions for powdered gelatin.
Strain the cheese into a bowl and pour the slightly cooled
custard over it, then mix. Stir until you have a smooth cream, and let it cool
to lukewarm. Stir the whipped cream into the cheese mixture. A whisk is faster,
but a wooden spatula does the job more gently.
Pile the filling on the pastry base encircled by a ring, and
smooth the top with a spatula. Chill the torte. Remove the ring. Using the ring
to keep the cut pieces together, slide the second shortcrust base on top.

It is quite possibly, one of the busiest areas of your home.
It is the place where you spend as much if not more time than in any other part
of your home, and you must get good value for your money consistently, because
the product produced here is continually being stocked, prepared and consumed.
If we are to follow business principles here, then we've got to figure out a
few things. Number one, what is the primary purpose of your kitchen?
Generally speaking a kitchen is the main food storage and preparation area of
the home. It may be the one area where guests continually congregate. If you
have an eat-in kitchen, you may find that your family, like mine, continually
pay bills there, do homework, and if the computer is also in this area, where
they work and entertain themselves. All of these purposes must be taken into
account and planned for. A counter top at a lower height might serve as your
desk, with a deep drawer nearby used for files. A shallow shelf above would be
perfect for storing cookbooks so the area might serve a dual purpose of meal
planning center as well as computer area. A long window seat might be the
answer for company that wants to sit in the kitchen. And incidentally provide
much needed seating for mealtimes. Make your kitchen fit your needs.
Roughly 15% of your household income goes into foodstuffs. That's a large chunk
of money for most businesses. Number one priority of any business is to know
what you spend in a given department and then to make sure that it comes in at
or below budget. Start by determining how much money you spend. Yes, you should
include fast food sources and restaurants and lunches purchased at school,
unless you have a separate category for entertainment and eat out only
occasionally. Otherwise, it's food, so count it. Once you determine what you
spend, and if it's a reasonable budget for your family, the next step is to
determine how to prevent spoilage of our inventory of foods. The single greatest
detriment to any budget is to lose your investment.
Proper storage for fresh and non-perishables alike is imperative. Follow
directions on pre-packaged foods for proper storage and use proper precautions
when handling, refrigerating and/or freezing fresh foods. Good guidelines for
food storage may be found at your local library, online, or in comprehensive
Don't buy more fresh foods than you can reasonably prepare in a one or two week
period. This of course, depends on three things. Your budget (are you buying
food weekly, biweekly, or once a month) and the size of your storage areas
(including freezer and refrigerator) and your family size. No need to buy enough
lettuce for three weeks, if you don't have the room to properly store it, and
you can't afford the hearty kinds that will withstand that long time period
Plan ahead. Start by making a complete inventory of the items you have on hand.
In this way you will be able to use foods that are nearing their expiration
date. Then make out a menu. Making out menus serves three purposes. #1You can
plan to use the food you already have on hand; #2 It saves that day's end panic
stricken cry, "I don't know what to cook!" You can look at your menu each
morning (or even the night before) and take food from the freezer to thaw in
plenty of time for supper. #3 And lastly, you'll know exactly how many meals you
can prepare and how much food you will need to purchase to prepare any further
meals required. Because I cook 99% of all our meals at home, I know that I must
plan for and prepare 42 meals every two weeks (based on how our income is paid).
Determine your needs each week by using your calendar to plan appropriate menus.
If you've determined to cut out most of your fast food expenses, it's best to
plan for some convenience on days that are filled with appointments or other
activities. If you're too tired and frazzled to cook, then you're not going to
want to prepare a lengthy and tedious meal. Plan to use crock pots and
microwaves, as well some convenience products, to lighten your load on those
days. Save meals that require lengthy prep for days when you can do the work
with leisure or spread the work over two or three days. And do try to have a
few frozen entrees tucked away that will ease your load on those days when
everything goes differently than planned. What a luxury to have a reserve of
lasagna, or pre-formed burgers, or a casserole you can pop in the oven and serve
with a salad.
Make your kitchen convenient for you. I find the larger the kitchen, the more
you will likely require to make it work for you. If you always end up carrying
baking supplies across the room to the one counter that is uncluttered, then
that's where your baking supplies should be. If you have to cross the kitchen to
get seasonings, then move them. Or do as one good cook did, and keep two sets of
the more common seasonings. She had one set near her food preparation center
where she did her baking, and one set near the stove. If you use dish washing
liquid at the sink, as well as at your laundry area to treat stains, get two
bottles, one for each station.
Can't reach high shelves? A sturdy folding stepladder that may also be used as a
seat when you must stir a recipe for a long while or wash dishes, might be the
best answer. An island in the middle of a kitchen may be handy to move items
from fridge to counter tops where food prep goes on. Your arrangement doesn't
have to make sense to anyone else, but should help you be as efficient and at
ease as possible.
Have good equipment to work with. A fridge that routinely goes on the blitz,
faulty burners and leaky faucets are a few of the problems you might face. It
requires only a little money to keep these things running smoothly.
Maintain your equipment. Burner pans and vent filters may be bought for under
$10 at the home store. Most appliances will benefit from routine cleanings with
a simple baking soda and water solution. Read operation manuals for appliances
and follow their suggestions for keeping products in top working order. Most
good sets of pots and pans, dishes and glasses, as well as small appliances come
with suggestions that will vastly prolong the life of the item(s).
Have enough equipment to do your work properly and efficiently. Insufficient
pots and pans or dishes and glasses might be another. I can easily manage to use
my dishwasher only every other day, if only I didn't have to wash glasses and
silverware for the next day! I find I am continually reaching for a spatula (the
type you scrape a bowl with and coming up empty. I have to stop what I am doing
to wash and rinse one when I need it. I must buy more.
Always buy the best you can afford. Consumer research or word of mouth
advertising are great sources to go by. We bought Corelle dishes after the
children broke set after set while on dish duty and have found them to be
sturdy, reliable and, while not unbreakable, tougher than the average stoneware
or china plate. I have the convenience of being able to buy these dishes by the
piece if needed, rather than complete sets, so I can easily replace any that do
meet with an accident.
Running your kitchen as a business may be a new idea to you, but I believe
you'll find it a more pleasant place to be if you do understand the purposes and
rewards of doing so. Our only return on our investment may be family health and
happiness, as well as freedom from hunger, but in the end isn't that the best
return of all?
