  1. Airehead's post in Do you like Cheesecake? was marked as the answer   
    There are things  I like better but my dad loves a ricotta cheesecake.
    I am, however, a fan, once a year, of the pumpkin cheesecake.  I make it with gingersnaps instead of graham crackers in the crust.
    ngredients
    CRUST 3/4 cup cinnamon-flavored graham cracker crumbs 3/4 cup chocolate graham cracker crumbs 1/2 cup finely chopped toasted pecans 5 tablespoons butter, melted 3 tablespoons granulated sugar Vegetable cooking spray FILLING 4 (8-oz.) packages cream cheese, softened at room temperature 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice teaspoon vanilla extract 4 large eggs 1 (15-oz.) can pumpkin 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice TOPPING 1 (16-oz.) container sour cream 3 tablespoons granulated sugar Pinch of pumpkin pie spice Directions
    Instructions Checklist Step 1 Prepare Crust: Preheat oven to 325°. Stir together first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl until well blended. Press mixture onto bottom and 1 inch up sides of a lightly greased (with cooking spray) 9-inch springform pan. Bake 10 minutes. Let stand at room temperature until ready to use.
    Step 2 Prepare Crust: Preheat oven to 325°. Stir together first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl until well blended. Press mixture onto bottom and 1 inch up sides of a lightly greased (with cooking spray) 9-inch springform pan. Bake 10 minutes. Let stand at room temperature until ready to use.
    Step 3 Process pumpkin in a food processor 1 to 2 minutes or until very smooth. Stir together lemon juice and 1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree; reserve remaining pumpkin puree. Add pumpkin-lemon juice mixture to cream cheese mixture, and beat at low speed just until blended; pour into prepared crust.
    Step 4 Bake at 325° for 50 minutes to 1 hour or until center of cheesecake jiggles. (Prepare Topping during last 10 minutes of bake time.)
    Step 5 Prepare Topping: Stir together sour cream and 3 Tbsp. granulated sugar; reserve 1/3 cup sour cream-sugar mixture. Stir together remaining sour cream mixture, pinch of pumpkin pie spice, and reserved pumpkin puree.
    Step 6 Remove cheesecake from oven. Gently spread sour cream-pumpkin mixture over cheesecake. Dollop with reserved 1/3 cup sour cream-sugar mixture; gently swirl with a knife.
    Step 7 Remove cheesecake from oven. Gently spread sour cream-pumpkin mixture over cheesecake. Dollop with reserved 1/3 cup sour cream-sugar mixture; gently swirl with a knife.
    Step 8 How to Make a Leaf Garnish: Cut refrigerated piecrusts into decorative shapes using seasonal cookie cutters. Arrange cutouts in a single layer on a baking sheet; score dough with the tip of a paring knife to create designs, if desired. Bake dough according to package directions until golden and done. Remove cutouts to a wire rack; cool and decorate as desired.

    I respect that but it seems underhanded to me that he worked on the show and was involved in picking the guest hosts, etc...  He did not do a bad job at all-- he was pretty good.  To me it feels like he got the job in a less than honest way.

    Blueberry pancakes for Einstein.  Plain silver dollar pancakes for the Airedales. Oatmeal and blueberries for me. I feel like a short order cook.
