  • Light Pumpkin Cheescake-Bev Laumann

    serves 12

    Crust:
    1-1/2 c. graham cracker crumbs (see note)
    5 Tbsp. Butter
    3 Tbsp. brown sugar, packed

    Filling:
    1/2 c. cottage cheese
    1 c. sugar
    3 Tbsp. brown sugar, packed
    3 Tbsp. corn starch or all-purpose flour
    1-1/2 tsp. cinnamon(if can tolerate)
    1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg(if can tolerate)
    16 oz. cream cheese, softened, at room temperature
    2 eggs
    2 egg whites
    1/3 c. evaporated milk
    1-1/4 c. canned pumpkin(IC friendly)
    1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

    For crust: Mix graham cracker crumbs, margarine and brown sugar in a bowl. Press into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch spring-form pan.

    For filling: In a food processor or blender, process the cottage cheese until it is no longer lumpy. Set aside for the moment. In a bowl, thoroughly mix together the sugar, cornstarch, brown sugar and spices. Beat the spices and sugars into the cottage cheese. Beat in the softened cheese, eggs, and egg whites. Blend in the evaporated milk,
    pumpkin, and vanilla. Pour into crust.

    Bake for 1 hour at 375 degrees F. Refrigerate at least 6 hours before serving. NOTE: Watch out for boxed graham cracker crumbs-- they may have bladder irritating preservatives. It is much safer to make your own from graham crackers. Nabisco's Low-fat Honey Grahams are a good bet. You can roll the crackers between sheets of wax paper with a rolling pin, or use a food processor to chop them into crumbs.

    Tried:
    Detrol:only took one pill and it made me sick
    Elmiron:caused horrible pain(took 1 week)
    CystaQ:caused alot of burning and pain(only took one pill)
    Wellbutrin:only on it for three days as it caused alot of bladder pain
    Elavil:Took one pill and it caused a flare that lasted almost two weeks. It was the longest flare I've ever had. Never again..ouch
    Prelief:made my bladder burn and feel tingly.

    Take:
    Uracyst:Started May 19 2011
    Enablex:take one pill daily with no issues
    Naproxen:for pain as needed
    Baking Soda with water:as needed and it's a God send. It brings down my pain within 20 mins.
    Venofer: Started April 2012 by IV for low Iron. I do not tolerate oral Iron so this is the route I had to take.Does not bother my bladder but did have other side effects. I take Benedryl with each treatment to avoid side effects.
    Supplements:Whey Protein powder daily
    Dessert Harvest Aloe It has been helping alot but I can only take it every two days as my "die off" reaction has been severe.
