At Ama’s office in Jacksonville, Florida, a friendly staff member brought a sweet treat to share. “This became too much for one anonymous coworker,” Ama says, “who maintained his or her strength under pressure long enough to leave this note.” (Honestly, as someone with a particular weakness for the sweet stuff myself…I kinda understand.)

Blueberry Cheesecake for Whoever Wants Some. I'm totally intimidated by this cheesecake. Will someone please eat it so I can use the breakroom!

    I’d gladly skip lunch, supper and breakfast the next day in order to eat the entire thing (if no one else was going to have some).

    I make a tasty low-carb cheesecake. Speaking of which, I should get to that. It’s long overdue.

      It’s rude not to bring enough for the entire site.

      You’re a moron. Cheesecake is by definition low carb.

      Stop your idiotic posturing about your fad diet or eating disorder.

      Where can I find your recipe? My DH is diabetic, and loves cheesecake.

      Jean,
      Fat, sugar and starch are the preponderance of ingredients in any cheesecake worth eating. In what alternative view of chemistry are these not defined as carbohydrates? Name calling is only tolerated here if your position has technical merit.

      Look up nutrition stats for “typical” or “average” blueberry cheesecake. Without knowing the exact recipe used, it’s impossible to determine these particular nutitional values, but it is reasonable to assume it is likely to be close to “typical”.

      Here’s one from Livestrong:
      One 6.6-oz. slice of blueberry cheesecake has approximately 475 calories, 27 g fat, 130 mg cholesterol, 315 mg sodium, 52 g carbohydrates and 7 g protein.

      I’m not sur how 52g of carbohydrates could ever be defined as “low carb”. Please continue posturing about your “fad diet” and “eating disorder”.

      See above note about posturing. Does it make you feel better? Superior? Good for you.

      What, facts? I rather like them. Using facts instead of blather to make a point does make me feel better, in fact. Thanks for noticing.

      Didn’t any of you guys/gals read about the new study conducted by an unspecified major university? Anything can be low carb if you just *believe* hard enough. Jean is obviously a believer.

      Fat isn’t a carbohydrate. It’s a lipid ;)

      Fat’s not a carb, and if the recipe doesn’t call for a jillion cups of sugar, the carbs /starch would mostly be in the graham cracker crust and blueberries. Basically a low carb cheesecake could be achieved by eating a stick of cream cheese covered in syrup.

    I have been craving cheesecake for, like, three weeks. I’ve been holding off. And now I’m about to write myself a note telling myself to eat a damn cheesecake so that I may stop motorboating my screen.

    Blueberries. Mmmm.

    Team note writer…I dreamed of this cheesecake last night.

    The second note writer needs to satisfy her craving by taking a tiny sliver of the remaining peice. Soon, only a 1/2 inch slice will be left, sitting forlornly in the pan all day and into the next because no one wants to take the last morsel.

    It’s a good thing there’s always the PA office dish doer who, disgusted by the spoiling dairy, tosses it, washes the pan, and leaves a note admonishing her coworkers.

    The cycle continues.

    Fortunately, I follow a strict diet that prevents me from eating foods whose names are made up of two or more words that don’t go together. “Eggplant” is my best example, followed by “mincemeat pie,” and, of course, “carrot cake.” “Cheesecake” is also on the list.

      Does sweet potato count too? ‘Cuz that would definitely be on my list. Potato was never meant to be sweet.

    • #11.2   Wait..what?

      Guess you have never had a yummy sweet ‘potato’ pie. It isn’t made of Idaho taters. In fact no potatoes are harmed in the making of this delicious culinary treat. A YAM is not a potato it is just called one by the uninformed.

      Expand your horizons. Damn now I want to go home and make one.

      For me it’s the blueberries.

      I love cheesecake but I cannot stand fruit toppings, especially ones in heavy syrup like that. (Now if it was a sprinkling of fresh blueberries that might be a different story, depending on how I’m feeling today.)

      For me cheesecake should either be plain or topped with chocolate of some form. Either syrup, fudge, chocolate chips, etc.

      I’d also like to say you really haven’t had cheesecake until you’ve had a freshly made Junior’s Cheesecake.

      Luckily for me, while I live in California, I bought their cheesecake cookbook. So while I can order one and have it shipped out, I can also make one according to their recipe which is almost as good as having the real thing. (And cheaper too since I don’t have to pay S&H from New York to California.)

      Mawwd,

      No wonder I’ve failed to lose weight. Sweet potato was not on my list. Thanks for the warning!

    How dare you do a nice thing and bake a cheesecake for the office, don’t you know that I am on a diet and I am the only person that matters in this office!?
