Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Ma made this cheesecake one year for John Bishop's birthday. She made the mistake of leaving the finished cake on the kitchen table while it cooled. She returned later to find that our cat Boots had eaten a perfect circle out of the middle of the cake. I assume she made another but I never knew for sure - I left the house as quick as I could!
