This No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake in a Jar is incredibly simple to make and tastes amazing!
I got to thinking I have not done FUN WITH JARS in a while. So I am slipping one in here before summer arrives and I retire FUN WITH JARS and replace it with FARM FRESH FRIDAYS.
Okay, so you know me and my theme days. They've run amuck. But I like amuck so it's all good. Amuck is the new organized. Or whatever.
Mini-me scored some strawberries at work so I confiscated them for my own evil plans. It's what I do. Someone buys a food item and my wheels start turning thinking up fun things I can do with it. Then it promptly disappears and ends up in a cake or cheesecake.
It's a talent. Or a curse. Seriously, whatevs. Who cares. There's food in the house so that's all that matters. Who cares if it's all made into cakes, bars, and ice cream. Willy Wonka would love to live here. So who are you all to judge. Bite me. And my cheesecake too.
I know right. So good! And so flipping easy. Some days easy is the way to go.
You could spend all day busting your hump over a complicated cheesecake or you could make this and save your valuable time for more important things. Like stealing food from your family members. Or watching the real housewives of wherever.
Keep your priorities in check like a lunatic folks. It's a good thing.
See now you want cheesecake right! You're making a list as you are reading this aren't you? I told you it was good. And easy. But you didn't believe me.
You just had to be all like "oh no she didn't" and I was all like "oh yes I did", and you were all like "oh hellz no" and I was all like "hellz yah". Pfft, you people and your skepticism. Seriously, bite me!
