Roundup 2/27/08

Mark over at ThinkGenealogy has created a research process map. I printed it on landscape. Because it is a gif format, it doesn't print as clearly as other formats, but it's still readable. Others plan to laminate it. I think I'd want a higher quality image before I spent money laminating it. Still, it is useful and can be printed for personal use. Update: Mark just informed me that I missed the link to the PDF file that will allow you to print out a copy up to 11 x 17. Thanks for the update!

Nicole has a great-looking French dip sandwich that is made using your Crock pot®. They've been talking about the various names given to open-faced roast beef sandwiches on the APG list, and I'll have to confess that I'd rather have a french dip sandwich, especially one that looks as tasty as Nicole's, any day to an open-faced sandwich by any name!

Speaking of food, this looks truly southern--Krispy Kreme® cheesecake. While I can pick up these doughnuts at the local groceries, I'd rather get them at the places where the "hot" signs are on.

Also check out Terry's latest post in the cornbread war.

Legacy's blog has a great tip for those of us who use that software. We can include the alternate names in the index view.

Random House is giving away Charles Bock's Beautiful Children as a free PDF download until February 29. (Hat tip to Mainelife)

I blogged our snow this morning, but here is what it looks like in Maine. I wish we had a little more. We ended up with about an inch where I live; however, they had about 8 new inches over at Ober Gatlinburg, fourteen inches (and still snowing) at Newfound Gap, and over a foot and a half (and still snowing) at Mt. LeConte. There are reports of about 13 inches in the Glades area of Gatlinburg. There are pictures at the Knoxville News Sentinel's site submitted by their readers. Marie has posted what it's like in North Carolina.

I found myself laughing at political cartoonist Marshall Ramsey's comments on last night's Ohio debate.

Thanks for the mention. Are you going to try that doughnut cheesecake recipe? Sounds tasty.

mmmmmm . . . donuts!

I saw this recipe for Krispy Kreme Cheesecake and thought of my mother's Oreo Cheesecake recipe.

In the meantime, I made a killer Key Lime Cheesecake over the weekend. This might be my Easter dessert this year:

I saw this recipe for Krispy Kreme Cheesecake too and it brought back memories of my mother's Oreo Cheesecake.

I made a killer Key Lime Cheesecake over the weekend for dessert. I think this will be my Easter dessert this year:

Am I going to make it? That depends on whether or not I get to Knoxville or Pigeon Forge this weekend when the sign is lit up! The ones at the store are just not the same! They've been sitting too long!
