I notice you more and more on the Cooking channel with Bobby as he host his cooking show and I can't wait until you get back on the air cooking. Gordon should create you another cooking show. Stay positive and true to yourself. The food network is missing out.

I tried this yesterday and it did not turn out well at all. No flavor and only rose about 1/4 of an inch. It looked so good coming out of the oven and then it dropped. I rechecked my ingredients but I added everything,(all real ingredients) so I know I did not leave anything out. Used gas stove and springform pan as instructed. ???what could have happened.

I am making this cheesecake tonight for my husband's birthday - I can't wait!! So just to be clear...I need to use THREE bricks of cream cheese, but leave all other proportions the same? Thanks!!

I could have swore that the show in which i watched Paula make the cheesecake with the steaks cooked in the cast iron skillet, she used sour cream in the recipe. Did i just have a brain freeze or what? Was there sour cream included in the recipe? By the way, it was excellent without sour cream but I just want to know. Thanx

What do you mean by cover with a cookie sheet? Do you mean just place it I top without touching the filling or what ?

LOVE THIS!! My husband is VERY picky about his cheesecakes, and he absolutely LOVED this one. I did however use 1 1/2 cups of graham cracker crust(I have a larger pan) and 3 blocks of cream cheese instead of 12oz. It turned out wonderful. I'll definitely be putting this recipe in the keep box. Thanks Paula!
