For Father’s Day we’re making the perfect Man Food this week for #SundaySupper.  I had to think long and hard to decide what to make.  I started by asking Hubby what his favorite thing is that I make.  He didn’t know.  After thinking a lot about it myself I asked him again, but this time I asked him what he wanted me to make for him for Father’s Day.  He wanted beef heart.  My first reaction was  – YUCK!  Hubby LOVES offal – liver, heart, gizzards, all kinds of animal parts that make me cringe.  When he cooks any of it for himself (which he does not do often, out of respect for the rest of us) I get nauseaus just from the smell.  I told him I would not be making him heart for Father’s Day.  Could he possibly think of ANYTHING else he might like me to make?  (He will be making heart for himself for Father’s Day, by the way).  After a bit of thinking, he chose cheesecake.  Classic cheesecake.  Nothing fancy.  No fancy flavors or fancy crusts, just simple, classic cheesecake.  I could do that.

So I started researching cheesecake recipes and felt that my favorites were a Sour Cream Cheesecake from Alton Brown, because it included a standard graham cracker crust, cream cheese, sour cream, heavy cream, whole eggs and egg yolk which sounded perfect to me and Grandmother’s Cheesecake from Allrecipes because I liked the cooking method.  I didn’t want to try cooking the cake in a water bath, so I hoped that the cooking method for the Grandmother’s Cheesecake would work with the Sour Cream Cheesecake from Alton Brown.

  9. This is hands down my favorite dessert in the world and yours looks luscious, rich, and creamy!!

  10. How can you even eat a heart? That sounds so Hannibal Lecter.. :-)
    Better go for some classic cheese cake!

  11. Class Cheesecake is always one of my favorites! What wonderful man food!

  12. Lol, I wouldn’t have cooked him heart either! I can’t eat it (although everyone else in my family does. I’m so picky!) Cheesecake is a much better choice in my opinion. I love sour cream cheesecakes! It makes them even silkier, with that slight subtle tang to cut through the sugar.

  13. Cheesecake is my favourite, I actually chose to have cheesecake at my wedding instead of traditional cake. Never had sour cream cheesecake, sounds interesting.

  14. Oooh cheesecake is a much better choice haha. This sounds wonderful!!

  15. I’m glad he chose cheesecake too! lol

  22. Mmmm. This does look to be a classic recipe with a reputation for classic scrumptiousness. P.s. I’ll take cheesecake over meat any day of the week, too =)

  23. I’m so glad he came up with another suggestion besides beef heart. If my husband wanted that, I think he’d have to find his own kitchen :-). Your cheesecake on the other hand is perfect. It was the first dessert I made once I graduated from toll house cookies.

  24. Yea, I wouldn’t be cooking beef heart either. Much prefer cheesecake.
