I like the points system of Synovate - Global Opinion Panels because even if you don't qualify for the survey, you still get to earn fifty points credit. Somehow this helps add up to your overall points. Surveys are not as much as others but they are a lot simpler to complete. I was able to redeem quite a number of checks already though not in bigger amounts but it still works for me.

A cheesecake is a
wonderful dessert that most people enjoy eating. You can make several
variations out of it. If you like jello recipes, then you can make a
recipe with a jello-topped fruit or plain jello topping. You can add
anything that you like to the original recipe including marshmallows,
nuts, chocolates, fruits or anything that you can find in your pantry or
If you have read the culinary history, then you will know that cheesecake was originally created by the Greeks and served to athletes during the first Olympics. The Romans adapted the recipe and spread it throughout Europe. The immigrants brought the recipe together with them when they moved to America and other parts of the world. Thus, the entire recipe that we currently have is no longer the original one, but a mixture of the original recipe together with the mix of local taste. Hence, we would like to know how the original recipe of our beloved food tastes.
We are going to discuss how the recipe tastes like when it was first introduced by the Greeks. This is a savory dish that is similar to vegetable and cheese quiche with a different texture. The original recipe is very easy to make, and you will surely love it especially if you like to make genuine international recipes.
This recipe is wonderful if you like savory meal ideas. The combination of olives, vegetables, sour cream, feta cheese, breadcrumbs and many other ingredients make this dish a gourmet feel. It is a good variation from the usual egg-based savory dish.
To make the crust
Grease a springform pan with 2 tablespoons of butter and preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix on cup of breadcrumbs and one-fourth cup of grated parmesan. Spread the mixture over the pan in order to form the crust.
Get a pound of cream cheese and beat it until it looks fluffy. Add four eggs, a cup of crumbled feta cheese and a cup of sour cream. Continue beating the mixture until it becomes very smooth. Fold in a handful of chopped olives, a chopped red bell pepper, two teaspoons of chopped basil and few pressed garlic cloves. The half of the mixture will be poured into the pan. Get some artichoke hearts and chop them. Mix and stir them into the other half of the mixture and pour them all together into the pan.
Bake the cheesecake for about 45 minutes until it is golden brown. Let it cool to room temperature before you start decorating it with additional crumbled feta cheese, chopped black olives and chopped red bell pepper.
