64 is how many ounces of cream cheese I used when baking cheesecake.  I have been baking a ton.  I have been baking cheesecakes, chocolate chip oatmeal cookies, and am just about to start baking chocolate cake. 

The cheesecake recipe that I used is the Top Secret Cheesecake Factory Cheesecake Recipe.  I have tried multiple cheesecake recipes and this is the best one I have found so far.  The only change that I made is using butter instead of margarine in the crust.  But don’t worry I didn’t use all 64 ounces in one cheesecake; I made multiple. 

These are pretty much the best chocolate chip oatmeal cookies ever! I have made the recipes dozens of times.  There are two cookie recipes that I am known for and this is one of them.  The great thing about this recipe is that you can leave it simple or add all different extras to the recipe such as dried cherries, nuts, toffee, etc.  Either way they are great.  Next time I make it I want to try adding pretzels and peanut butter.  While I have found an amazing chocolate chip oatmeal cookie recipe I am still on the lookout for a really good plain chocolate chip recipe, and I will let you know what I find.
