It says right on the box, “Nobody doesn’t like Sara Lee.” Well, I can’t vouch for other people, but that statement holds true in our house.
Sometimes we get excited about a certain product we’re asked to try at PlaidDadBlog. Sometimes, I’ll be honest, we dread it. It may be a brand we’re not familiar with, or one that’s already left a bad taste in our mouth. But then there’s times like these. Christmas on the eve of spring.
Sara Lee Is Always A Party
We have four kids and two adults in our house, and whenever we get Sara Lee, distant family seems to pop out of the faux woodwork. Everybody has different tastes and preferences, so we like to make a toppings bar for the ages. Luckily, the base of all these extra flavors is creamy, dreamy cheesecake, made with real sour cream topping. So the first part of my “secret” is to grab one, two, or three of the boxes below:
Folks think it’s hard to make special cheesecake recipes, so they usually settle for one topping. If you don’t like blueberry, tough luck. Well, in my house that just won’t do. Here’s a secret, or food hack as the kids would call it nowadays: you don’t have to slave away making toppings. No hours in front of the stove. No complicated recipes to follow. The answer, just like in math class, is PIE.
Pie + cheeseCake = Joy
That’s right: pie. Or pie filling. You can buy so many flavors, there are hundreds of combinations to try. Kids and adults alike will think you’re a budding dessert chef, destined to be the next reality TV star serving the President your confectionery concoctions.
My favorite Sara Lee Cheesecake recipe is plain Cherry. So simple. But I have impressed a guest our two with cherry topping, sprinkled with a touch of roasted coconut and drizzled with melted marshmallow. Run a torch over that for 30 seconds and your friends and family will swear you spent years in cooking school – or secretly called for delivery when everyone was binge watching ‘Fuller House’ in the living room.
Wanna try another taste bud wonder? Take a spoonful of peanut butter and two spoonfuls of whipped topping and place in a bowl. Pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds then stir. Now drizzle over your Sara Lee Cheesecake. You can thank me in the comments below. You may wonder how you ever lived without knowing about this. You won’t wonder why your waistline has expanded a full size by next month, but you won’t care either. Peanut Butter. Sauce. Cheesecake. Ain’t America grand?

Christian has had many roles in life. He’s been a minister’s son, a poor student, a computer geek, a bible college dropout, a corporate suit, a traveling comedian, and a failure at much he’s tried. But he counts 2 huge successes in his life. He is husband to a wonderful wife, and father of two exceptional kids he wanted, a third ‘surprise baby’, and a In 2015, they met yet another surprise, as their fourth (and prayerfully last) child defeated birth control with her sheer will to exist. Having just missed Aaron in college by a few years, they connected online, finding they had a similar sense of humor [read: DARK] and decided to launch PlaidDadBlog. Christian hosts the ‘What Are We Watching?‘ podcast with his son Carlin, and just launched a new web series, DadSews, where he learns (an fails) to sew LIVE on camera.
