Review

The title's promise is delivered on 115 pages of recipes and cooking tips and 22 indescribably delicious photographs of cheesecakes. (Orlando Sentinel)

This cookbook is a must for the beginner and the advanced baker. Mary brings a freshness to baking cheesecakes... informative, interesting and yet, unintimidating. (Arlene Williams Host, At Home With Arlene Williams)

Every slice of I Love Cheesecake by the brilliant Mary Crownover gives us more reason to eat dessert first! Cheesecake lovers will delight in user-friendly directions, and Mary's expertise reveals tricks of the trade in creating the perfect cheesecake. From the classics, the creative spins, and healthful versions, each recipe tempts you to delve further into the sumptuous world of cheesecakes. (Carol Ritchie Cookin' With Carol, Cooking Instructor and Cooking Show Host)

Absolutely phenomenal! I love cheesecake and there are so many variations in this book. So well put together. I will use this so much. (Nancy Cloud Comcast Cooking Show)

What an amazing collection of creative and easy cheesecake recipes! The hardest part is selecting which recipe to create and eat first! (Tricia Robinson-Pridemore Cookbook Digest)

"Crownover covers many creative ways to flavor cheesecakes, but doesn't neglect the basics, either. For a profusion of cheesecakes...you'll find all the recipes you'll ever want here." (Nick Malgieri Cookbook Digest)

"From casual get-togethers to more formal affairs, this sophisticated approach to the classic indulgence guarantees rave reviews at every kind of party." (Clovis News Journal)

Crownover provides step-by-step instructions for guaranteeing a faultless cheesecake, every time. Her directions prevent cracking, splitting and falling, all of which are common when attempting to make this coveted dessert. (Houston Lifestyles and Homes)

Cheesecake has a magnetic pull for me, so I usually enjoy a good cookbook on anything that hails that white brick of delight. That being said, this particular book title is a bit of a disappointment in that her first cheesecake book is far superior to this one and I would respectfully steer you to that one called "Cheesecake Extraordinaire". Allow me to explain.

This book is basically a updated version of her first book, but with this one, there are absolutely no photo's of any cheesecake except for the cover. And because of that photo and her name, I assumed this was a new book altogether, but upon receiving it, I was disappointed in that it is empty of photography and new recipes.

Also, the Foreward is the basically the same one from her other book with only a few altered sentences so it reinforced my thoughts. And even the 5 "new" cheesecake recipes are very similar to ones from her first print, with just an altered ingredient or two. I suppose that if I knew this was an updated version, I would have reconsidered its purchase.

So I would strongly recommend Mary Crownover's "Cheesecake Extraordinaire" for it's sumptuous and delicious photography which makes you have a very difficult time in deciding which of the excellent cheesecakes to make.

First, I love cheesecake. Well except for chocolate cheesecake which to me doesnt taste like cheesecake. I love baking cheesecakes, trying new recipes, spending too much money on cheesecakes cookbooks which by the way there are surprisingly very few. And yes this is one of the books I have and have tried. These cheesecakes have the most creamy perfect texture, melt in your mouth perfection. Another reviewer said the baking temp was too low, but I think that is the reason for the superior texture. It makes for a more time consuming task to be cooking for two hours at 200 then cooling for another two hours with the oven turned off, but we arent talking about any more labor involved, just time. And I overslept while my peaches and cream cheesecake was in the cool down cycles (oven off, cool slowly in oven for two hours) and it still came out one of the best cheesecakes I have ever made. I had two proposals from work over this one! Sure they were for me to sell them this cheesecake to order and not marriage, but I'll take what I can get! The crusts are basic varieties you'll find anywhere, the toppings are wonderful. One of them is melted white chocolate with sour cream and lemon extract, then you pour over your cheesecake and chill. WONDERFUL. So all in all I would rate this book 5 stars for variety, clear directions and superior texture.

I have made 3 cheesecakes from this book thus far and they have been absolutely wonderful! If you like cheesecake, this is the book for you. I've made Cookies n cream, pumpkin pie cheesecake, and key lime cheesecake! All taste as if they've come from the restaurant. Delicious!

This book really is great and I highly recommend it for anyone who loves cheesecakes, and her tips would help out even people who don't know how to make the cheesecakes they love so much (just make sure you have plenty of time on hand).

Our local library has this book. I checked it out from there and kept it in the back of my mind for a long time. I have made the ammeretto cheese cake out of it while I had the book checked out of the library. The cheescake was so good. I decided I needed to own this book. There are lots of different kinds of Cheese cake in this book all of which sound great. I want to make almost everyone.

I have tried a few of these cheesecakes and love them. The only thing I do a little different is I don't put the topping on as I found it is just to much sweetness. The cheesecakes always turns out extremely creamy.

I enjoyed Mary's first cheesecake cookbook a great deal more. The primary difference was the adding the yogurt recipes in 'I Love Cheesecake'. This one was hard to read with the red text and light yellow ingredient headings. I think photographs throughout the cookbook would have made a big difference of the presentation also.

I have made three cheesecakes using the recipes in this book. All have been delicious. Recipes have been easy to follow. This is a great book for a beginning baker or one who wants to make a better cheesecake.
