MEXICO CITY — Mexico has long been known for tacos and tequila – but cheesecake? Chef Miguel Angel Quezada says 55 cooks spent 60 hours making the world's biggest cheesecake – a 2-ton calorie bomb topped with strawberries.
The monster cake used nearly a ton of cream cheese, the same amount of yogurt, 350 kilograms (772 pounds) of pastry, 250 kilograms (551 pounds) of sugar and 150 kilograms (331 pounds) of butter.
Carlos Martinez of Guinness World Records declared the cheesecake the world's largest on Sunday at an event sponsored by Kraft Foods, maker of Philadelphia cream cheese.
There wasn't much competition. Guinness had no previous record for cheesecakes.
Organizers gave out 20,000 slices around Mexico City.

Employee Gift Ideas

Over the years, I have tried searching for something "just-right" for my individual employees. I try to get to know them, learn about their hobbies and their families. But, I'm sure that "World's Greatest Golfer" statue that I got for Bob five years ago is either in a box or in the landfill by now. Eventually, I turned to food.

I started out with fruit baskets, but those get pretty boring. I found personalized baskets with coffee or soup and mugs or bowls. Those are pretty cute. But, once I started giving cheesecakes, everyone seemed a lot happier.

In fact, now they would be disappointed if I started looking for other employee gift ideas. They sort of "expect" their cheesecakes. In the beginning, I was surprised to learn about all the different luscious varieties that are available from the better companies. I thought you might find them interesting.

Pumpkin Cheesecakes

These are particularly popular around the holidays. They've pretty much taken the place of pumpkin pies, in my mind. You get that same kind of flavor in a light airy dessert that literally melts in your mouth.

Not a fan of pumpkin? How about mangos, pecans, blueberries, chocolate or caramel? The best bakeries offer a large number of choices.

Personalized Desserts

"Happy Birthday, Bob!" "Happy Anniversary, Judith!" Anything that you can say on an ordinary cake can be said more scrumptiously with a cheesecake. These are great employee gift ideas and you can always include an E-card or greeting to make it even more personal.

Samplers

When I have new employees, I tend to stick with the samplers. That way, I can be sure that at least "one" of the choices will be appealing. Then, I try to make a note of remarks that they make about specific flavors. If he didn't like the raspberry swirl, I'll order something different next time.

The first time that I ordered a cake, I got it from a bakery in town. I had to go there one day to place the order. I had to stop in again to pick it up. It was good, but I have found that ordering on-line simplifies the process. Cheesecake Delivered.Com, for example, has a variety of cakes and other employee gift ideas. I have one employee that only eats "organic" food. Believe it or not, they make an organic cheesecake!

Get it Delivered!

Having it delivered is just the easiest and simplest option, but local bakeries charge a fortune and you can never count on a delivery date or time. There's nothing more frustrating than having the party delayed, because the dessert hasn't arrived.

The tarts and truffles from Cheesecake Delivered are delicious, too. We have never been disappointed with their employee gift ideas and I think that's the most important thing. Give it a try and see what you "your" employees think.

Need a Dessert For a Dinner Party? Try a Cheesecake

I always seem to have less time than I thought, so I usually start with ice cream. If you want it to look really nice, invest in a restaurant style scooper. There is no limit to the variety of different toppings that you can try. I'm a big fan of strawberries and pecans.

For a quick and easy dessert or "anytime-treat", I put plain vanilla ice cream together with strawberry and banana slices in the blender. I leave it thick and we eat it with a spoon, but you can add a little milk and serve your own fresh milkshakes.

As far as convenience goes, we have much to choose from in the grocery stores, these days. I'm not a big fan of the mixes. The taste is not the best and they often don't set. I love cheesecake, but that no-bake version that comes in a box is pretty "tasteless". But, sometimes I do occasionally buy a ready-made crust and fill it with canned fruit fillings. To give apple pie a personal flair, I'll slice green apples and arrange them on top. Of course, this has to be done right before serving or the slices will turn brown.

Fruit is always a quick and easy dessert and the healthiest choice. I like using half of a honeydew melon as a serving bowl. Just scoop out the melon, put it in a large bowl, toss with a variety of fresh berries and serve. Return to the melon halves and serve.

Since, occasionally I run into a situation that requires a quick and easy dessert suitable for a party or dinner guests. I got "stuck" too many times in the past, so I decided to order one of the beautiful cheesecakes from CheesecakeDelivered.Com and store it in the freezer.

They can be stored frozen for up to four months, but since we often have unexpected guests, they never last that long. And, of course, they are only good for one meal, because they are so delicious. I've tried practically every variety, now, and I'm never disappointed. Personally, I prefer cheesecake, but they have quite a selection of other pastries. Elegant cakes, fruit tarts, sugar-free and even all organic are just some of the things they have to choose from. They offer next day delivery and you can order up to a year in advance,in case you have that much time to plan. It never happens to me, but I know that some people are that well organized.

Just to recap; my quick and easy dessert ideas include ice cream, fruit, pecans or other nuts and cheesecake Enjoy!

Simple Desserts

My family simply must have dessert, even if it's nothing more than a bowl of fruit with whipped cream on top. I have noticed that some families don't have dessert. Actually, many families today don't even make time to sit down for dinner together. I just believe that eating together is important.

I'm as pressed for time as anyone else, so I've had to come up with some impromptu meals and very simple desserts over the years. But, I have always managed to pull something together.

For special occasions, I go all out and try to make an "impact" with the presentation. On ordinary days, we usually serve ourselves in the kitchen and then gather back around the table. Have you tried strawberries and cream?

You simply take fresh strawberries, sprinkle lightly with sugar and pore in a little cream or skim milk, if you prefer. That was one of my mother's favorites. She would sometimes have it as a midday snack.

No matter what the occasion, if you want to be a success and leave your family and friends filling satisfied, but not bloated, the end of the meal should complement the other dishes served, as well as the beverages. Remember, red wine and chocolate don't mix. You might end up with a sick guest or two, if you try that combination.

A sweet fruity wine is a nice accompaniment for chocolate slivers, but fruit and cheese are a better choice when alcohol is being served. Try slicing an Anjou pear; sprinkle the slices with grated sharp cheddar and some chocolate shavings. Bake just long enough for the cheese to melt slightly, not brown. Serve it up warm, along with your favorite glass of wine.

When the main dishes are heavy, serve simple desserts that are light and airy. Italian Ice, for example. To follow-up seafood and salad, you can serve a "heavier" chocolaty dish. Cheesecake follows most any meal nicely, but there are other choices that you can order on line. Try truffles as an ending sometime. They literally melt in your mouth.

You can try some of the simple desserts that I've mentioned here, but you might also want to check out the cheesecake-delivery option. The cakes available from CheesecakeDelivered.com stay fresh in the fridge for five days and can be stored in the freezer for four months, a handy thing for those unexpected visitors.

They offer next day delivery and they have something for everyone, whether you're a nut for nuts or a fan of fruit. Their samplers are great for those that are undecided, which often includes me. I've come up with a lot of ideas over the years, but for truly simple desserts, it's nice to let someone else do the work for a change.

Low Carb desserts

Luscious desserts and low-carb diets typically do not mix. Sugar is, of course, a carbohydrate. How can you have something "sweet" without using sugar?

Those of us who cook know that using artificial sweeteners changes the recipe, drastically. Things like saccharin have less "bulk" than straight sugar. So, trying to bake a sugar-free cake can be very difficult.

But, even sugar free cakes are not low carb desserts. Flour is also a carbohydrate. Eggs, milk and cheese are allowed on your low-carb diet. But, sugar and flour are not. So, what should you do?

How about cheesecake?

Typically, New York style cheesecake is made with heavy cream, cream cheese, eggs and additional egg yolks to add richness and a smooth consistency. Lemons, strawberries or chocolate shavings may be added for flavor. None of those ingredients are carbs, but of course, most recipes call for sugar and lots of it.

Once you add the carbs from the graham cracker crust, you have about 25 grams of carbohydrates in a 3.5 ounce serving. That's a pretty small slice. But, cheesecakes can be low carb desserts, if they are properly prepared, without the sugar and "sans" crust.

It's difficult (next to impossible, really) to make this kind of cheesecake at home, because, as I mentioned, sugar substitutes change the recipe. If you do get it to set, you also get an unpleasant aftertaste. It's hardly worth the effort.

But, you can still serve delicious low carb desserts at home, with very little effort on your part. You can simply order it on-line.

Our own line options for serving a gourmet meal are simply amazing, to me anyway. We can stick to our diets, eat healthy, cater a dinner party or have a private affair for two, right in the luxury of our own homes.

When you consider the time it takes to cook a meal, the shopping, the cost of ingredients and the likelihood that the recipe will "flop", I think catered meals are a cost-effective option. I don't know about you, but my time is money.

My health is very important to me, but temptations are not always easy to resist. So, I try to be sure that I always have "healthy temptations".

If you work full time and commute to your office, by the time you get in your daily work-out and get ready for dinner, you might be tempted to settle for fast-food or whatever's in the fridge. That's what happens to a lot of people, so they end up with an unsuccessful and unhealthy diet.

There are a few really good companies that makes healthy delicious low carb desserts on the internet, suitable for a dinner party or an everyday treat. The taste is delicious and you can store them in the freezer, so that you're prepared for those unexpected guests.

What could be simpler?

Giving a Cheesecake as A gift?

Each year, millions of Americans must buy gifts for specials occasions, which may include birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, and popular holidays. In fact, a number of Americans also give gifts to those that they love just because. If you are in the market for a gift for a special occasion or even for no reason at all, you are urged to examine cheesecakes.

When it comes to cheesecakes, they are often most commonly associated with desserts, not gifts. While you may not, personally, associate cheesecakes with birthday gifts, wedding presents, and such, cheesecakes as gifts are rapidly increasing in popularity. In fact, a large number of individuals are now giving cheesecakes as gifts, instead of traditional gift baskets. One of the many reasons for this is because of the formats. If you are relatively unfamiliar with cheesecakes, you may not necessarily know that cheesecakes come in a wide variety of different size, shapes, and styles. Just a few of the many cheesecake types that you can purchase are outlined below.

One of the most highly sought after and searched for types of cheesecakes is pumpkin cheesecakes. While a large number of individuals prefer giving pumpkin cheesecakes as gifts around the holidays, pumpkin cheesecakes are ideal for just about any occasion, at anytime of the year. When it comes to pumpkin cheesecakes, you will find that they come in a number of different styles. It is not uncommon to find pumpkin cheesecakes are that referred to as pumpkin spice cheesecakes and pumpkins swirl cheesecakes. Each pumpkin cheesecake style combines the tasty flavor of pumpkin with the always tasty flavor of cheesecake.

Aside from pumpkin cheesecakes, chocolate cheesecakes are one of the next types of cheesecakes most commonly sought after. When it comes to chocolate cheesecakes, like pumpkin cheesecakes, you will see that it is possible to find numerous styles of chocolate cheesecakes. For instance, many online cheesecake stores or retailers have chocolate cheesecakes available for sale as chocolate swirl cheesecakes, chocolate caramel cheesecakes, as well as double or triple chocolate cheesecakes. Chocolate cheesecakes are the perfect gifts for dessert lovers, as they combine two of the tastiest items in the world, chocolate and cheesecake.

Berry cheesecakes are also ideal for cheesecake gifts, as many individuals, possibly including your intended gift recipient, enjoy strawberries or raspberries. When it comes to strawberry cheesecakes and raspberry cheesecakes, these cheesecakes are most commonly available in swirl styles, as with most other cheesecakes. For instance, a strawberry swirl cheesecake will have swirls of tasty strawberry juices throughout the entire cheesecake, as it is the same with raspberry cheesecakes. When it comes to giving cheesecakes as gifts, strawberry cheesecakes and raspberry cheesecakes are often considered the safest choices. As it was previously mentioned, many individuals enjoy the taste of strawberries and raspberries.

With so many great cheesecake flavors and varieties to choose from, you may be unable to pick just one. If that is the case, do not worry, as you are not alone. In fact, that is why a large number of cheesecake makers and sellers have started offering cheesecake samplers for sale. Cheesecake samplers are a collection of different cheesecake styles. For instance, if you were looking to purchase a chocolate cheesecake as a gift for someone that you know, but if you were unsure as to what chocolate cheesecake you would like to purchase, you could purchase a chocolate cheesecake sampler. Depending on the sampler packages available, you could have a few slices of triple chocolate cheesecake, chocolate swirl cheesecake, chocolate caramel cheesecake, and so on.

If sending a cheesecake as a gift to a friend or relative sounds interesting to you, you will need to find a company to do business with. For the utmost convenience, you are urged to examine shopping online. A number of cheesecake companies, including CheesecakeDelivered.com , will ship your cheesecake gift right to your recipient, frozen. CheesecakeDelivered.com will also allow you to send a personalized greeting card with your cheesecake gift, no matter what the occasion.
