The Sounds of a Podcaster

Podcasting is an interactive way to get one’s knowledge, thoughts and information across to a platform of different individuals. It is a fun experience but it can also be very difficult and time consuming for a beginner, like myself. However, I enjoyed the process of learning to create a podcast for my media production course. Until the next podcast, enjoy!

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 3/4 condensed milk
  • 2 cups of cut strawberries


Pre-heat oven to 350F. Once oven is ready place pre-made pie crust into the oven for 5-7 minutes. In a large bowl add 2.5 softened cream cheese blocks, 2 eggs, 1 cup of sugar, 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, 3/4 condensed milk and blend until the mixture has a thick and smooth consistency. Next, pour your mixture into the pie crust and position back into the oven for 40-60 minutes or until baked. Next, place strawberries on cheesecake and set the cheesecake in the refrigerator for at least 2-3 hours. Enjoy!
