Gluten Free, Low Fat Lemon Cheesecakes recipe and Egglands Best Giveaway

Lemon Cheesecakes

It is hard enough to find recipes the entire family will agree upon, but imagine adding a child with celiac disease to the mix. When my daughter was diagnosed a year ago we had to undergo a radical menu change. She missed her favorite foods and complained she could no longer go out with friends for a simple meal. When Egglands Best asked us to share one of our favorite recipes, I immediately thought of these mini Lemon Cheesecakes. They control diet cravings during the diet when I want to gnaw off someone’s arm, please the entire family and provide my daughter with her favorite dessert;cheesecake. The texture of these cakes are a little different, being a little more spongy. I solved these problem by placing them in the freezer for 30 minutes prior to serving which firms them up quite a bit.

    My favorite egg based dish are egg salad sandwiches. We go through eggs like crazy because we love to cook. My husband loves deviled eggs, and the kids love my potato salad with egg.

    I buy one carton of 18 eggs a week. I guess a little less than the average family? This looks like a good recipe. I’m a lover of quiche so I’m sure I’d like this.

    This looks so yummy! My eldest step daughter has celiac disease. She doesn’t live with us. She’s in college, but I have started diving into getting more gluten free recipes because I know that we are in gluten overload in America so I try sometimes to use a recipe that doesn’t have gluten but that is healthy too. This looks like a nice way to splurge for your daughter! Who doesn’t like cheesecake right? :)

    I really love deviled eggs and egg salad but I rarely make either because no one really likes it as much as I do.

    My favorite egg-based dish is quiche. I have tried many types of quiche and I like the shrimp quiche the best.

    I make an egg, turkey bacon, cheese, and veggie baked breakfast “muffin” that is delicious. It’s really a mini omelette baked in a muffin tin.

    My favorite egg based dish is a western omellette I just love them. This is a super cute giveaway I love the big egg.

    I like different kinds of Quiche. Spinach Quiche and Quiche Lorraine are two of my favorites.
