Recently I decided I needed to use up some cottage cheese. My visiting daughter had already planned to use the ricotta cheese in a lasagna. Since the oven would be on, a cheese cake seemed a good way to go.
It's been years since I made my mom's style of cheese cake. With no written recipe around, I had to depend on my recall skills. That was the real challenge. Soon the basic batter was ready and in the pan. Creating the cottage cheese mix to place into the centre of the batter was what I had to guess at.
