No-Bake Cheesecake Tart with Strawberries and Honey

Justin Chapple

It's more than a month away from the start of summer, but we're already on the hunt for outstanding desserts that don't require turning on the oven. This week in the F&W Test Kitchen, we whipped up an especially delicious no-bake cheesecake tart that was slightly sweet and impossibly creamy.

We pressed graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, cinnamon and sugar into a tart pan and chilled it to make a super-simple crust. For the filling, we made a surprisingly light combination of ricotta and cream cheeses flavored with fresh lemon juice, agave nectar and ground ginger. On top: macerated strawberries and a drizzle of honey. The recipe will be published later in the year, but if you're in the mood for something similar now, we suggest these phenomenal Lemon, Poppy and Chèvre Cheesecakes with Rhubarb from our May issue.

Actress Anna Kendrick plays a food truck cook in What to Expect When You’re Expecting, the parenting comedy that opens nationwide today. Off-screen, she’s a bona fide baking fanatic and, recently, a fried chicken fiend. “It’s hard to believe, but I recently tried fried chicken for the first time, at South City Kitchen in Atlanta. I didn’t eat it as a kid, and I just never thought to order it. I had no idea what I’d been missing!” Kendrick would likely love Grace Parisi's amazingly crispy buttermilk fried chicken.

A new study from the U.S. Department of Agriculture shows that eating healthy is not more expensive then eating junk food. Economists analyzed the price per calorie, price by weight and price per average serving for over 4,000 foods. When it came to fruits and vegetables, the researchers found that the price "per average portion consumed" was a better value than less healthy snack foods and sugary items. NPR’s food blog, The Salt, suggests that when you’re trying to get the most nutritional value for the money you should use legumes like beans or lentils: they’re filling, high in protein and very affordable. These spicy pita pockets are stuffed with roasted chicken, bulgar and delicious lentils. Topped with a tangy tahini sauce, the pita pockets make a fast and filling weeknight dinner or a brown bag lunch.

In honor of Goya Foods' recent partnership with Michelle Obama in the “MiPlato” campaign, which helps foster healthy eating habits in Hispanic communities, the Huffington Post published a brief history of the brand's rise from humble beginnings to massive success over the last 75 years. While Goya sells 1,600 products, it's mostly known for 38 varieties of beans. One 15-ounce can of black beans, plus scallions, lemon juice, cumin and salt are all you need to make the piquant salsa for these fast and easy chicken burritos.
