Chocolate Glazed Triple Layer Cheesecake Cut

Earlier this week I posted a recipe for Chocolate Glazed Triple Layer Cheesecake, a cheesecake with layers of chocolate cheesecake, brown sugar cheesecake and sour cream cheesecake. It’s one I wish I could make more often, but since it’s rich and serves so many people, I save it for the holidays when there are more […]

Chocolate Glazed Triple Layer Cheesecake

Happy Holidays! I hope you are enjoying time with friends and maybe having some fun in the kitchen as well. I’ve been a little apprehensive toward holiday meals, but not about dessert thanks to this tried and true cheesecake recipe which can be made ahead and frozen. It’s an old recipe, but I’ve already trotted […]

Oreo Cheesecake

I’m a little bit behind on posting recipes this week, but this one is worth the wait! It’s what I served on The Fourth of July plus a few other occasions, so I guess that makes it my favorite Oreo cheesecake recipe. This recipe is adapted from a cookbook put out by Royal Caribbean (though […]

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake was everywhere ten years ago, but the place I mostly remember eating it was at the bookstore coffee shop where it would either be stellar or stale depending on the time of day or from whom they ordered it. At some point I guess I had too many stale pieces because […]

As for me, […]

Strawberry Smoothie Cheesecake

A few weeks ago I made a peppermint cheesecake using an easy gelatin based recipe from an old Philadelphia Cream Cheese booklet. We liked it so much that I decided to try another recipe from the book — a recipe with the intriguing title “Very Smooth Cheesecake”. Maybe they meant to call it “Smoothie Cheesecake” […]

Peppermint Cheesecake

If you spot the new limited edition Candy Cane Oreos, you may want to buy two bags — one for eating. and another for baking.  They taste much better than I imagined (like Girl Scout Thin Mints in Oreo form) and have so many potential uses in baked goods.  I couldn’t decide whether to chunk […]

I’d like to say I baked this cheesecake, but the truth is I purchased it from the Biergarten Restaurant in Epcot’s Germany pavillion. It’s the real thing! We’re finishing up a short trip to Disney World where we celebrated the last few days of summer break and Fuzz’s birthday. I can’t wait …
