A Luminous Halo

"Life is not a series of gig lamps symmetrically arranged; life is a luminous halo, a semi-transparent envelope surrounding us from the beginning of consciousness to the end." --Virginia Woolf

As much as I love cheesecake, that's how much I hate graham cracker crust. Here's a cheesecake that doesn't have any crust at all. It's the one that I brought along yesterday to the cookout. Not sure why it cracked on top--it never has before--maybe because the eggs were so large? But I came home with an empty plate nevertheless.

Here's the recipe: 24 oz. cream cheese, a cup of sugar, 5 eggs and a tablespoon of vanilla, beaten together. Then 8 oz. of any kind of chocolate you like, melted, mixed with half the batter and marbled. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
