I forgot to post the recipe sorry, here it is.
I made a brownie crust and cooked it in my cheesecake pan
Then I took it out to cool and made the cheesecake recipe in the same pan.

4 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
1 1/2 cups white sugar
3/4 cup milk
4 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9 inch springform pan.

In a large bowl, mix cream cheese with sugar until smooth. Blend in milk, and then mix in the eggs one at a time, mixing just enough to incorporate. Mix in sour cream, vanilla and flour until smooth. Pour filling into prepared crust.
Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour. Turn the oven off, and let cake cool in oven with the door closed for 5 to 6 hours; this prevents cracking. Chill in refrigerator until serving

I added strawberries and blueberries to this for the 4th and then I drizzled hot fudge sauce over it to dress it up a little more.

So I tried a new recipe for the 4th and wish I would had just stuck with mine. This one had such high ratings though o I thought I would try it. Cheesecake is the one thing I never mess up on, well until now. The cheesecake sunk in the middle and it was a mess. I tried to piece it all back together and it looked horrible, I did not have any whipping cream to cover it up with so what did I do...I flipped the brownie crust up and laid the mess on the bottom, well it looked too plain for me so I looked around the kitchen and knew I wanted to use strawberries and blueberries but I need something else, AH! the hot fudge sauce! I heated it and added some to the top. Needless to say when my men seen it they were so excited! Now we will have to wait and taste it. Am I upset I tried a new recipe, no, I like to try ones all the time and I always learn something from them.

So I will post more tonight or tomorrow about our 4th and show you more pictures and recipes.

My oldest daughter will not be with us she lives in Vernon Hills IL.
and my second to the oldest daughter and her boyfriend are headed to a baseball game, He likes the Dodgers and they are playing the A's he is having her wear a Dodgers hat and shirt while they are in the A's hometown playing. Not to wise if you ask me. LOL They are I believe she said four rows back row the dug out. I will find out how that went and let you all know also. But you know what this means right...well the guys will be playing basketball or swimming so I will get Noah all to myself. :o) am I greedy.....oh you know it when it comes to my grandson, I mean he is so cute how can you not want to hold and love on him all day.

Have a Happy 4th everyone!

it was pretty good. I am not a huge chocolate fan that is why I did the brownie so I would not eat much.
