Easiest Cheesecake

Easiest Cheesecake

I was craving cheesecake the other night. It reminded me of this recipe which just has to be the Easiest Cheesecake ever.  It is so creamy and smooth and that’s all because I use a special weapon.  My  Blendtec blender. It makes this cheesecake so easy because you just place all the ingredients into the jar and mix away. Just try it and you’ll see how amazing it is.

Easiest No-Bake Cheescake
  • 1 package of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  1. Place all ingredients in Blendtec and press the sauces button on your blender. It will give you the smoothest cheesecake filling without you having to do much work. Pour into a graham cracker crust and chill for at least 30 minutes.


So if you were thinking that a blender is just for milkshakes and smoothies, think again.  I love all the incredible things this blender can do.

Do you ever wish you could take a peak into your child’s young mind and see what it is that makes them think, feel and act how they do? Do you sometimes worry that you’re not communicating with them very well or that you might be missing a teachable moment to help them grow, feel safe, and feel loved?

Are you ready to spend time with them individually and no longer miss out on the details of their day?!?

I know parenting isn’t easy… but it is one of the most rewarding things any of us will ever be a part of! (So many ups & downs, am I right?!) w’ve shared plenty of fun activities on our blog that encourage us to spend time with our children.  In fact our own Kirstin has designed an app, Kid Chatteroo, around this idea of staying in touch and communicating with your children.

The idea I am going to share with you today is another fun step into developing a lasting relationship with those special children in our lives.

“Life According to Me” is a darling child’s journal written by Stephanie from Somewhat Simple that will help you capture their youth and give you an inside glimpse of your child’s thoughts and feelings- all while having FUN!

It’s more than a boring journal with lined pages- it is fun & interactive with 30 pages of daily prompts, fill-in-the-blanks, and spaces for kids to draw and doodle. If you can get your kid’s creative juices flowing and open the door for communication, you’ll catch a better glimpse of what is going on in their little brains.

Perfect for kids of all ages!

Older kids can write their thoughts, little kids can use the space to draw pictures or you can encourage them to do a combination of both!

One of the best features of this journal is the spot on each page for your child to write a letter to you and the space for your response.

{You’ll love this amazing portal into your child’s mind!}

They write about ANYTHING they want – from funny things that happened at school, to questions about their science projects and information about their secret crush.

Get ready to experience moments of their day that you would have missed and the small details of their lives you could have easily brushed aside.

Your response will show your appreciation for them, to make sure they know that you love them. Validate their thoughts so they know they were heard and share bits of wisdom when a moment presents itself.

These letters will create a place for you to communicate with each other frequently.

Keep It Fun:

You don’t want this magic passageway to close up or disappear, so keep journal writing fun! Stephanie has the following suggestion that she implemented with her kids:

“I decided I would let each of them pick one weeknight where they get to stay up 10-15 minutes passed bedtime and climb in my bed where we can write in our journals, together. It is amazing what a later bedtime does for a kid! They get to stay up while their siblings go to bed, and I get to spend some individual time with each of my kids learning more about them. It is a win-win!”
