when I write posts for the blog, I write so fast that my mind can barely
keep up with my fingers. (Hence the occasional frequent typo.)
Ideas fly into my head and I literally have to jump up from my chair and
make them. Such was the case with this Dulce de Leche Cheesecake recipe,
which combines two of everybody’s favorite things: cream cheese and dulce
de leche. The French are fans of le Philadelphia, a catch-all word for
cream cheese (just like we say Band-Aids and Kleenex, which are actually
specific trademarks) and they are also fans of confiture de lait
(milk jam), their own version of dulce de leche.
don’t, however, have graham crackers, an all-American invention made with
whole-wheat flour, and designed by Reverend
Sylvester Graham, to discourage people (his followers were
called “Grahamites”) from having impure thoughts.
sure how I’d explain how a whole-grain cracker curbs lascivious urges to
French friends. But somehow, I doubt that would increase the chances that
we’d be seeing them anytime soon on French supermarket shelves.)
